Having problems with your Maytag MDBH985AWW 24 in. Built-in Dishwasher ?

We just bought this dishwasher. The instructions say it doesn't need to be anchored and it doesn't come with the clips you usually see for dishwashers that need to screwed into the frame (or have a place where such clips could be attached). That said, the dishwasher completely tilts forward when the top rack is loaded, so something is definitely not right. Has anyone had this problem and/or know how to resolve? Thanks.

The top rack isn't getting clean. Is it needing something cleaned out, or is something not sealing and taking the water pressure up to the top rack? How do I trouble shoot this. I already tried running an empty load with white vinegar...


Good evening. The white vinegar was a good start. It may not have helped the problem described, but will help clean out the lower end of the unit. Look for plugged nozzles and slots on the arms. Remove the arms and wash backwards through th ... Maytag 24 in. MDB6601AWS Stainless Steel Dishwasher

My Bosch dishwasher has several problems: 1) Water doesn't completely drain out and dishwasher kind-of smells when I open it -- I do keep the filter very clean. 2) The dishwasher takes HOURS to go through one load, no matter what the time says on the display and no matter what type of cycle you choose -- quick, delicate or regular. 3) The red display often displays something that looks like "2h" at the beginning of the cycle. 4) The place where you put the detergent doesn't shut.


Hi Kathryn .I think you have a defective pressure switch. The pressure switch is located near to the drain pump, and the device is used to determine when water had been drained completely.Also check the floater switch located ... Dishwashers

Whirlpool quiet wash plus dishwasher, (DU915QWDB1) not sure if the model number is correct. Basically my dishwasher will not drain completely (smells bad) and spills water during a wash. I don't know what it is, if there is something easy to adjust inside the washer? Or If there are general troubleshooting tips that I need to run through in order to diagnose the problem? Help!?

The dishwasher was recently removed for floor refinishing and reinstalled. The bottom rotor works but the top rotor does not. I asked the re-installer, who worked for the moving company, if he had connected everything properly and he said there was just one water line going into the machine and assured me he had connected it properly. Is there something else that needs to be done to make the top rotor operational? Thanks. John M

EDW5500DSS wont completely drain water Okay so now that my dishwasher runs, when it finishes a cycle it has a nice puddle of water at the bottom that never drains completely out. I am assuming its a relay or something because I looked for a floating switch (did not find), I can hear a pump sound as if it wants to pump the remaining water out, but, it doesn't. I really want to solve this problem soon so I can order the new door seal and needed part together. Checked the line out and of course i

Pump problems I had a fairly light load of dishes that needed to run so I thought I'll put some plastic fruit on the top rack to also get clean. Well, when the load was done and I opened the door everything was covered and I mean everything with a whitish substance aka wax! One of the fruit was made of wax an melted all over the entire interior of the dishwasher. We had 30 people now arriving for dinner so I just left it all alone. I should have run it again immediately but I didn't. Now after r

Holding water There is water in the bottom of the machine after the cycle is done. There is definitely draining going on throughout the cycle, but it's not draining completely at the end -and the water that is left is murky. Spoke to a friend who tells me it sounds like the dump valve, but in checking on line, that doesn't seem to be a part that even exists any more. Do I need to buy a new dishwasher? This was not in the budget this year... Thanks for any advice! Nancy

When the dishwahser door is lowered to unload the bottom rack, I get a small puddle from the top, left side of the door. this is the area where there are vents for the steam that releases during the final stages of the dishwashwer. this puddle happens every single time regardless of how long or short of time after the dishwasher is complete. Is something not working correctly? Or is this just a bad design and condensation is buidling up and this puddle is the result? My wooden floor is taking a

KitchenAid KUDPO1IL dishwasher has a buzzing noise during wash (and rinse?) cycles. Recently had to replace the top spinner (and connecting screw), as it had fallen off, but I think the noise was happpening before that. Today I re-clipped the flat pipe at middle back; one side had come loose. That might have helped a bit. Previously, I took out the bottom spinner and found a 1-2" string-like strip of gray nylon under that. I wanted to check a grinder, to see if something was trapped in that, but
