Having problems with your Maytag Dishwashers ?

WE HAVE HAD NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS WITH OUR MAYTAG DISHWASHER RIGHT FROM DAY ONE. WE WERE TOLD IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST DISHWASHERS ON THE MARKET AT THE TIME, CONSUMER'S REPORT ALSO HAD REPORTED THE SAME AND THAT SOLD US. I WILL NEVER EVER PURCHASE ANOTHER MAYTAG DISWASHER! THE DISHES, CUTLERY, CUPS AND GLASSES DO NOT COME OUT CLEAN! I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING FROM RELOADING THE DISHWASHER "PROPERLY", TO INCREASING THE WATER TEMPERATURE TO THE HOTTEST SETTING POSSIBLE, TO CHANGING DISH WASHING SOAP


Answers :

I understand.
\015\012The whole environmentally-friendly initiative represents a new type of technology, and sadly, new technology is not alway fully proven before being rushed to market.
\015\012I don't blame you for being upset, but before you rip the thing out by the wires, may I suggest you ask a maytag technician to visit the unit, just to make sure everything is working as it should? Sometimes components get jostled in shipment, or maybe a motor is running backwards, or maybe your home has low water pressure, or, or, or.
\015\012If your still not satisfied after it has been checked, then maybe it's time to find something better suited for your needs.
\015\012Hope this helps,

Help! My dishwasher runs thru it's cycles but when I open it I find my second detergent cup still full of soap and my dishes still dirty. I have an older maytag dishwasher but have never had this problem with it. I've tried running a short prewash cycle with the soap despenser open to wash out the soap from the open second despenser but it doesn't wash it out. I know water is coming out of the spray arms but can't see if the arms are spinning although when running it does sound like they ar

I am trying to install a new Maytag MDBH945AWB Dishwasher and have to run the drain hose under the machine in order to get it to the sink. Each time I try to use the hose that comes with the machine it snaps in two and breaks. I have tried to look for a replacement hose that would stand up to the abuse but all I can find is the original. Is there a replacement I can get that is more flexible than the one that comes with it? At this point I am rather embarrased about going back to Home Depot

I have a 4 year old Maytag MDBH945AWW and the panel lights come on and I can select cycles... but the dishwasher wont start. I tried holding the start cancel button, tried turning the breaker off for a couple of hours, took the inner panel off the door and checked the latch, but its still wont start. Any other suggestions? If it needs a new control panel its probably better to just get a new similar dishwasher for $300, correct?


What you need to do is read for continuity and power across the door latch switch. (2 white wires) AND 2 Black wires Both wires must read continuty at the control panel connectors to the power source terminals for the unit to start. Since the co ...

Soap has collected and hardened inside dishwasher and comes off and flakes on the dishes. I have tried cleaning with a few cycles of 1 cup vinegar (no dishes) and making sure the water is the hottest. I also tried Dishwasher Magic which did not help at all. Can I use Lime Away? Is that safe? Or will that poison me with the next cycle of dishes? Is there another solution? Thanks, Missi Walkyourbike

Maytag dishwasher #33323190JG Many of the dishes come out with a white-ish coating. I usually end up using an SOS pad to scrub it off. Three weeks ago a repair man replaced the heating element due to the recall but that didn't help it. He suggested trying "Dishwasher Magic." I've used Dishwasher Magic a couple of times within the last two weeks but the problem remains

We purchased an Electrolux Dishwasher Model #EWDW6505GBO, installed on 8/3/10, and we are very dissatisfied with it, as it just does not wash the dishes clean. We have had G.E. Dishwashers, two, since 1961, and then a Bosch, and they have all worked well. It appears that the water is not getting to the top and/or properly rinsing them. We rinse everything prior to putting the dishes in, but coffee cups come out with the ring around the top. The soap doesn't fully disolve. We have tried doub

The contol lock LED is illuminated on the front panel of my Maytag dishwasher. (Neither my wife nor I pressed the control lock for 3 seconds!) We've tried to extinguish it by pressing it for 3 to 5 seconds, but it remains ON. We've turned off the breaker to the dishwasher overnight, but when we turn the breaker back On, the contol lock LED comes on. We simply can't unlock the control panel. We can tell that all of the other buttons work just fine because pressing any of them causes the 3 Sec LED


If by pressing the control lock button for 3 seconds does not solves the problem.then there are 3 possibilities due to which this problem may occur\015\0121)the door is not closing properly. the dishwasher door latch is either cracked internally or t ... Maytag Dishwashers

My dishes are coming out lacking shine and with a cloudy coating on the silverware and glasses. I use CascadeComplete and an additive liquid in the "shine" cup. My Maytag dishwasher is 15 years old. We also have very hard water, so I am being sure to fill the cups full of the powder prior to washing. Any tips? [email protected]


I'm not an expert, but either it's the hard water, or it's not getting the "shine" liquid. I'd look for a soap that specifically says that's for use with hard water. A water softener would be the best solution.Just keep an eye on the "shi ... Maytag Dishwashers

Dishes and glassware are not clean after a cylce is done. I do not overload. You can even see lip marks and film on the drinking glasses. The silverware has white film on it. The cups and glasses have food particles in them. I've even tried using the pots and pan cyle on a regular load and they still don't come out clean. I do rinse before putting in the dishwasher. I use Cascade or Palmolive and I use a rinse aid. Model DU850DWGB1.

Do I need to replace the switch panel or is there something I should try? I tested for power and have 120 volts coming into the circut board and through the door switch


Possible switch panel. When you press it does it feel like a click as the the other buttons? If so you probably have a bad circuit on the inside, if it doesn't click the heated button switch is more then likely the cause. ... Maytag 24 in. MDB5600A Jetclean II Built-in Dishwasher

My Maytag MDB9150AWS is no longer working due to what I believe is a electrical fire in the front control panel as there was smoke coming out of the top of the front panel. There were no flames but the smell took your breath away. We had to open the Kitchen windows and door for several hours to try to get rid of the smell, but you can still smell it by the dishwasher. This model is not part of the recall. Has anyone else had a similar problem with this model?

The adapter on my maytag portable dishwasher comes off the faucet when I try to run it sending water everywhere! We JUST replaced the adapter and hoses, $50 and not the problem. It seems that the plastic pieces (not metal balls) are wearing out as soon as they're used. Does anybody know what I can do or if that isn't the problem, could it be that I have the wrong end on my faucet????? HELP!!


If you just replaced the connector and it won't stay on, replace the adaptor on the faucet. ... Dishwashers
