How to clean fins over drain on maytag mdb6701AW

\015 My dishes are coming out with a dirty (ex: food particle) film, especially glasses. I've run a white vinegar empty cycle without any improvement. Now I'm digging deeper and finding the drain "fins" are full of food and one jet on the spray arm was plugged. How can I safely disassemble the dishwasher just enough to be able to adequately clean these fins? Clearly we need to do a better job of scraping ... not something we had to do with our old dishwasher but will from now on. Yet I need to clean out the "gunk" that's accumulated. Help!\015

I have a Maytag dishwasher, Model MDB4100. Are there directions for removing the cleaning equipment in the bottom of the dishwasher? I do have the manual and there are no instructions to do this. I am getting scummy buildup around the drain and suspect it needs a good thorough cleaning that I can't do without taking it apart. I have tried to clean away the "gook" but it reappears after a few washes and I can't reach the back. Thank you, Cara

MAYTAG MDBH979AWS DOES NOT SEEM TO FILL WITH WATER, AND HAS STOPPED CLEANING THE DISHES..My husband took everything apart and we cleaned each piece and put it back together , there was no indication that anything was clogged, and he was able to determine that water was coming in to the washer, but dishes are still dirty. There seems to be soap residue on the bottom of the tub. We also check to see if it was draining properly and that was fine also. Any other suggestions?

Maytag dishwasher model MDB7609AWW2 has a blinking clean light. I followed the advice on fixya (thankya!) and by alternating the normal and heated wash buttons I was able to return the lights to normal. However, once I tried to run a normal cycle, it didn't do anything other than fill and drain. I then ran the hot water faucet in the sink until hot and tried another new cycle, but no luck. Any advice is MUCH appreciated!

Maytag Model MDB7160AWW S/N 10337613WQ Symptons: Fills with water OK, shuts off water OK, does not start any cycle, or drain. After a power off/power on reset, problem remains. Flashes CLEAN & LIGHT WASH. My understanding is this is an error condition for low motor current, which makes sense as the motor never starts. I know both door switches are good (I checked them with a DVM) and both engage when the door is closed. Tripping the water float switch opens the valve and water fills the tub

This dishwasher (MAYTAG DWU6402AAE) is 12 years old, and recently started having a problem with the water. I'm not convinced it's spraying or even rinsing. The soap doesn't drain from the container. Dishes are not getting clean. I'd like to know if there's anything I can do to fix this before I call in a repairman. I'm very handy, and can follow instructions. Thanks. Mike
