Our Maytag dishwasher, mod MDB9150AWS, has abad lower rack due to rust and prongs coming loose. Maytag sent me a replacement BUT without the center spray tower. It looks like trouble to remove the old one and install it in the new lower rack. Any help would be appreciated.


Yes, I resolved the problem after thoroughly studying the assembly. It was relatively simple; all I had to do was turn the spray tower 90 degrees and it came free of the rack.\015\012\015\012Thanks for the web site, nonetheless. ... Dishwashers

GU980 dishwasher I have a buzzing sound when the washer is in drain mode. The manual indicates there might be something in the Power Clean Filter, and that it will go away when the object grinds up. I called Whirpool, and they said the same, and to run for 2-3 cycles to make go away. 2-3 cyles later, noise is still there. I noticed a nub off the rack that looks like an end peice of metal broke off from rust. My guess is it's stuck in the PCF, and will not grind up. I removed the nut, lower spray

I have an LG dishwasher lds5811ww -- for about 1.5 years. Purchased it at Best Buy. The soap dispenser is not emptying completely anymore. The upper rack is in its uppermost position. I suspect that the top two spray bars are not turning around because they have not changed positions when I suddenly open the dishwasher while in operation. The spray nozzles do not appear clogged.

Hobart Dishwasher We have an old smaller built-in dishwasher at our church (Hobart model WM5H). It doesn't stop spraying water if you open the door to remove a rack of dishes to put the next rack in like it is supposed to. One member thought it may be the Electrical Timer Switch?

I guess I didn't understand your statement of the problem. If you know that the washer has gone through an entire cycle, and it is time to take out the RINSED dishes, yet the washer turns on when you do this, play with the door interlock and the doo ... Hobart Dishwashers
