Having problems with your Maytag MDB7100AWB Dishwasher ?

Our MDB7100AWQ flashes the light that the troubleshooting sheet says means: "Turbidity sensor fails to find clean water" I cleaned a lot of gunk out of the screens but the code didn't change. Do turbidity sensors get clogged up?

Yes, depending on how it is mounted, ther could be gunk in the stub of pipe or a film caused by hard water on the sensor, pull the sensor and clean.

I have a GE Profile, GSD4930X73WW, dishwasher. The upper wash arm is not spraying well at all. I checked the water line from the pump to the upper arm and it's fine. I cleared the filters and cleaned the float. I also took the inlet valve off and cleaned the screen. Although the washer works better overall, the upper arm still does not work well. Nothing appears to be in the upper arm assy to clog water from spraying out. All seems clear from the turbid sensor (next to the pump) through t

I have a whirlpool GU2700XTSQ1 dishwasher. I have the typical top rack not cleaning problem. I have removed the rear washer tube that leads to the top sprayer, no clogs. Upper arm is clear, lower arm is clear. I also removed the lower cover, checked the chopper screen and inlet, no clogs. There is a screen inside that I cannot get to. It appears to have some sort of paper or cloth sticking through the screen with a 50% block. Perhaps a sticker or label from a dish. I see this screen when looking

There is water in the bottom of the dishwasher, under the silver screen. Our glasses have been coming out filthy, while going in clean. I pulled the screen out. It has a lot of gunk in it. Also in the bottom of the dishwasher, under the screen, on the edge of the water, there is a lot of grit, like sand. Thanks.

There is baked on crud in the glasses after the cycle is over. I've cleaned the screen at the pump because it is clogged,and that fixes it, but it gets clogged again real soon. I also replaced the litle spinning propeller that is supposed to clean the screen but i think that it's not spinning. How do I test or repair that? Steve

My dishwasher (Kenmore Elite 665) doesn't use up all the detergent in the detergent cup - it always leaves a little behind at the end of the cycle. the dishes don't get quite as clean any more, either. I recently replaced my old water heater - we were getting lots of little plastic pieces in our faucet screens. I'm guessing that the water pressure may be low, and that it may be due to the same problem. Is there a screen-type filter that filters the incoming water, before it enters th

I have a Quiet Guard Standard model #587.151524 that is not cleaning the dishes. I took the bottom spray arm and screens out and cleaned them, (they had a heavy buildup of what I would say is calcium. The arm cleaned up fine but the screen still has some areas that will not allow the water to drain. I tried CLR and it helped but the screen is still probably 60% clogged. Do you think this is the problem getting the dishes clean and if so do you have any suggestions about how to clean the screen?

I have a Kenmore dishwasher 665.17799990. Not enough water was coming in so I thought that I'd check the screen inside the water inlet valve to see if it was clogged. It was. I cleaned it out,but mistakenly opened the wrong part of the valve looking for the screen and took apart the diaphram assembly. Bad mistake. Now I can't get it back together without it leaking like crazy. I can't remember how it was configured to start with. I put it together once,but it wouldn't shut. I can't afford to buy

The dishwasher will not drain. The motor hums. We have tried to remove the central unit inside the dishwasher, but cannot remove the inner black disk --it has a bolt, but we cannot get a good grip to twist it out. We suspect that under the mesh covering is a lot of gunk that needs to be cleaned out.
