    We have had this Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher for 3 years now without a problem. Now when we try to get it to go through a wash cycle it sounds likes it grinding and no water is coming out through the wash cycle. The dishes are "hot" and the drying cycle was activated, the dishwashing detergent "flap" is open and the detergent is spilled on the inside of the door but the water never cycled through.

  • J Mark Feb 17, 2008

    My dishwasher sounds like it's laboring as it washes. The labored sound is there
    immediately after starting the wash cycle. Originally we would hear a
    rattling sound at times during the wash cycle but that eventually
    stopped. I took the spray arm apart in the bottom of the dishwasher but didn't find anything unusual. The labored sound definitely was not there for the first several months of operation. I don't know where else to look....

  • Dideben May 27, 2008

    Help! My maytag 300 has been making that nooise for quite a whiile now...now the dishes are still dirty when it is done cleaning and the soap is still sitting in the dispensers. Don't know what to do!?

  • LainiMarie Jun 07, 2008

    It is quiet when it is heating the water. As soon as the water starts to fill it starts this labored grinding noise. I have not let it finish a cycle.

    I have had the dishwasher for around 3 years and in the past 2 weeks it started making a grinding noise after it fills and starts running. It is washihing nicely but the noise is getting louder as the days go on.

  • fracton Nov 05, 2008

    I had the dishwasher about a year and half. First it started making more noise than normal. Then it began to make a loud grinding noise.

  • c2bburton Nov 17, 2008

    My Maytag Quiet Series 300 started making a clicking noise like something is rattling round in the motor or bottom sprayer arm. Now its buzzing every few seconds. Any solution beside sending in that lonely Maytag repair man?
    After reading the manual it looks as though there may be something hard in the internal garbage disposal. That's what the clicking noise sounds like, like when you get a bone down in the garbage disposal. Any help in know how to open the garbage disposal?

I was so impressed with the advice on this website, I thought I would take a stab at this. The difference is, I will include all the steps, so if I go into a little too much detail for you, I'm sorry, but I felt a few things got left out that needed to be said.

Tools Needed: screwdriver with t-15, and t-20 torx bits (available at any hardware store), and a pair of pliers. Also I used a headlamp so I did'nt have to hold a flashlight with my teeth.

step#1- Clear a spot on your counter or kitchen table and remove both the lower and upper racks from your dishwasher. The lower rack just lifts out, the upper you will find two light blue plastic caps that once removed will allow you to slide the rack off of the metal slides. Next, the long L shaped spray bar that goes up the back and across the top needs to be un-clipped and removed, 2 clips at top and 2 clips at the back. It might take a little wiggling but that spray bar slides into the top cover, once unclipped push back at the bottom and tilt the upper part toward you, it should come out fairly easily and give you wide open access to the cover. Next you want to remove the plastic nut that holds the spinner in place, using your pliers turn it counter clockwise, it should loosen fairly easily, and remove nut and spinner. Next with either a T-20 or T-25 torx bit, remove the 3 screws that hold the outer cover in place, notice the direction of the tube that plugs into the spray bar, make sure it goes back in the same way. Now remove the T-15 screw that holds the black grinder cover in place and remove screw and cover. Now remove the 6 screws that hold the inner cover in place and remove the cover. You can now see what all the fuss was about, mine included a piece of pistachio shell, a bay leaf, and a cherry pit. Once it's all cleaned out, just reverse these steps and be ready! You have just earned your place as your homes resident handyman or woman!

    Thank you for posting the details. My 1st attempt I couldn't figure out that the L spray bar could be snapped out of the clips. On mine, I found two additional screws after the inner cover (6) before I could remove the final cover below the grinder. My culprit was a thin piece of plastic smaller than ones little finger nail and a small plastic end cap (still not sure what from). It's nice not to hear the grinding sound anymore, and not to have to call the repair per$on!

  • andyro Jun 05, 2012

    Thanks you so much. Fantastic details. It's so quiet now that at some point I thought that it wasn't working.

  • keirn May 27, 2014

    We did all of this and it seems there is a screen that can have hard water buildup. Can't clean hard scale from between the screens. Any other suggestions? Also have used that hard scale remover (can't remember the name).

I have Model MDBH970AWW Quiet Series 300 Maytag dishwasher, started making a strange and sudden sound that wasn't "normal" Took out my six-sided (not Philips) tool, removed spray arm by hand, eventually got to the bottom of the tub (remember how and where all the screws go and in what order). I found a small nail, and a tooth pick which must've been moving in a circled fashion, all the while "chipping" away at the black gasket, hence the black floating particles or stuck to the sides of the tub. Granted the tooth pick must belong to my husband, but the 1 inch nail - dishwasher came with house and was 2 yeats old at the time. At any rate, these were removed and all the dirty food-filled water was removed. Apparently the tub hasn't drained 100% everytime. At any rate, the washer now runs quiet as it should and smells as good as new. DMA

    Very helpful solutions. I was curious to see what ours had collected over 6 years - 2 wooden matches, a pistachio shell, a b read bag closure, and a rubber tyne tip. Actually, just noticed the other day the tip was missing. The picture taking did help in reassurring me in the reassembly. Awesome fix!

FYI... I followed Miss Midget's steps... and there it was... a piece of plastic... actually one of the end caps from the rack. Poor design if you ask me. So for all you "grinders" out there, it's an easy fix... just need the appropriate star screwdriver. It went back together easier than it did taking it apart. Thanks.

Like they all said...removed the arm( small cap nut-removees CCW as any usual nut), the plastic cover (3 larger screws), then tipped it back enough to remove the inner top cover then unscrewed the black impeller (small circular thing with 
one screw in the middle) then removed the bottom plastic housing.  At this point you can see the cutter blade and the channel which will have the junk floating around causing the problem.  I found a rubbewr foot off a cutting board and a plastic piece of a bird feeder.  Shocks me that this little stuff made sucha hugh sound.  Be sure you get it back in the same orientation.  The bottom plastic must align to the drain in th erear...mostly if the screwsa align then it is right.

Don't let this scare you...easy.  Just don't rush and over tighten the screws.

Thanks for the tip! Same grinding issue on my Maytag Quiet Series 300. Easy to disassemble, but I had to do it twice! First time, I found a flat plastic bread package clip and thought, "aha"! But when I re-assembled it, same grinding sound. Disassembled again and found two other small wooden pieces I hadn't seen before, reassembled and "voila"! Back to quiet. So a word of advice - when you're in there the first time, look hard to make sure you find all the foreign matter!

Miss Midgit's steps were great - however, if you un-clip the "arm" from the back and top - goes faster. After it is unclipped, tilt it forward. Found broken pieces of black plastic and a Corelle sticker - we don't own any.

Ran a test run and it still stopped at 38 minutes. Husband asked what the High Temp Wash was - did not know and did not set. Finally figured out that once it gets to 38 minutes and water temp is not high enough, it stays at 38 until water gets hotter, then goes on it's merry way to count down.

Just fixed my Maytag Quiet Series 300 using the above steps to disassemble the spinning arm and other inside tub stuff and found a screw and a few small chicken bones and such...   That was it- it "sounds" like this dishwasher is succeptible to small particles getting down into the inner workings that cause some noises-maybe common to all dishwashers- I don't know I am not a repair guy- or at least not on most days...today I am as well as totally impressing my wife... Thanks!!!!

This solution "sort of" worked for me. I took apart the lower assembly and unfortunately found that my impeller was damaged and the plastic pieces that were causing the occasional noise were actually from the "neck" of the impeller where the screw held the impeller in place ... so I have to order a new impeller to see if this totally corrects my problem but I'm sure it will - I'll report back in a few days when my kitchen "project" is reassembled with the new part (appliancehelp.com and appliancepartpros.com were two of the better sites I found that actually included diagrams of all the parts in my appliance on their website - and I ordered for them as well).

Same grinding sound issue on my Maytag Quiet Series 300 MDB5601AWW. This was a relatively simple fix with a couple of Torx bits (T-20,T15). Removed a toothpick and a the remains of a couple of rubber feet from my cutting board. Working fine now.

  1. Check the water temperature. Should be 125 to 140 F.
  2. Check pump re-circulation., Listen, see if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
  3. Check water level when the fill cycle has completed. Should be just under the heating element. If not, possibly need to replace the water inlet valve.
  4. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks.
  5. Check to make sure dishwasher is draining after each cycle. There should only be a little water in the bottom of the tub.
  6. Make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.
  7. Possibly try a different detergent. Some liquid-gels will bubble and a pump cannot pump bubbles.
Scrape away large pieces of food, bones, pits, toothpicks, etc. Burned on food should be loosened before loading. Empty liquids from glasses and cups. Foods such as mustard, mayonnaise, vinegar, lemon juice and tomato products may cause discoloration of stainless steel and plastics if allowed to sit for a long period of time. Unless the dishwasher is to be operated at once, it is best to rinse off these food soils. Load racks so that large items do not prevent the detergent dispenser from opening. If the dishwasher drains into a food disposer, be sure disposer is completely empty before starting the dishwasher.

Tip

Garbage Disposal Smells


What can you do if your garbage disposal starts to stink up the kitchen? Because of the stuff that you put down the disposal and grind up the residue can sometimes start to create a foul odor that can be noticed in and around your kitchen. To combat this problem there are some general things that you can do and also some things that you and grind up in the disposal that will help to keep it smelling great.

One of the things that will make the disposal smell bad is if your dishwasher discharges through the garbage disposal. The food left after the water goes through will soon start to spoil and stink. Make sure that you run your disposal after the dishwasher runs to clean out the food and keep the disposal clean.

Some soft foods like meats and cooked vegetables will also tend to stick to the plate of the garbage disposal. These will cause a smell to develop after a time as they breakdown. To stop this from happening keep harder foods or foods that smell better for last to run down the disposal. This will help to clean the plate and keep the garbage disposal smelling better.

If you are going to be away for a long time, or you are having friends over and want your garbage disposal to smell good, you can use a lemon or lemons rinds. Cut up the lemon and grinds it up before you shut down the disposal. This will have your garbage disposal smelling great!!

There are also commercially produced garbage disposal cleaners, deodorizers, and degreasers, that you and buy at most grocery or hardware stores that are made specifically for this purpose.

Maytag gold dishwasher model GU2400XTP03 Ser# Fs0606107 Will NOT DRAIN


Hello

Do not open the dishwasher until the cycle completes. A green indicator light on the front of a Maytag dishwasher will let you know the cycle has completed. If you open the dishwasher before the cycle is over, close the door and press "Start/Resume."

Remove the knockout plug from the disposer inlet if the dishwasher is connected to a food disposer. Place the tip of a screwdriver along the edge of the knockout plug, which is on the side of the disposer. Tap against the head of the screwdriver with a hammer until the plug comes loose.

Inspect the drain hose for kinks. Make sure it is not bent or pinched in a way that would impede the flow of water through it.

Use your hands to clean food from the drain in the dishwasher. A buildup of food can block the drain and not allow water to freely flow from the inside of the dishwasher.

Open your breaker box and check to see that the switch that controls your kitchen appliances is flipped to the "on" position. A switch flipped to "off" means your appliance has no electricity. The dishwasher will not drain without power.

Myag dishwasher is not draining


Even though Maytag dishwashers range from simple to advanced, any type of Maytag dishwasher can potentially have a problem draining. In many cases, the failure to drain is directly related to a blockage and not caused by electrical or other operational problems. There is a high probability that you can repair a Maytag dishwasher that is not draining without the help of a professional.

1.
Press the "Start/Resume" button on the front of the dishwasher if the dish-washing cycle was cut off before it was able to complete. Close the appliance door within three seconds of pressing the button.

2.
Remove the screw that connects the drain hose to the disposal inlet. Place the tip of a flat head screwdriver in the inlet and along the top edge of the knockout plug, which is located just inside the inlet. Tap the end of the screwdriver with a hammer as many times as needed until the knockout plug gets moved out of its place. The knockout plug does not allow water to flow and causes the water in the dishwasher to backup.

3. Pull out the dishwasher and look for kinks or pinches in the drain hose. The hose must be free of defects to work properly.
4. Flip the switch to run the food disposal to ensure there are not food items inside that would prohibit the free flow of water between the disposal and the dishwasher.
5. Open your fuse box and flip the switch for the breaker associated with the dishwasher to the "On" position if it happens to be set to "Off" because of a power surge.
I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks for using fixya

My dishwasher has a smell, like rotting food, even when it is empty. How to I get rid of this smell?


Hi- It is probably rotting food. No matter what anyone tells you you have to rinse your dishes, dishwashers are not garbage disposals even though some manufacturers say otherwise. Try cleaning the filter, if you can't get to it you'll need to have a Tech out to do it. You can also try running a short cycle with a few tablespoons of bleach. As well, don't use "natural" soaps, they tend not to break-down grease well. Good luck.

Maytag dishwasher has a grinding sound during the


Hi

Many times a complaint of noises ( grinding or scraping ) can be traced to a cracked impeller in many of the common motor and pump assemblies used today. Sometimes a poor washing complaint is common after this wash impeller has cracked. Remove power first before investigating.

bc03dd0.jpg
The motor shaft has started to rust and swells out and this swelling cracks the upper impeller. Most times a new seal and impeller kit can cure this complaint but sanding and cleaning of motor shaft is required before replacing the new seals and impellers.

Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

New Garbage disposal, washing machine and dishwasher won't work.


Does not sound like these problems are directly related to the disposer. Grinding sound is most likely the impeller on the washer's pump. The washer gets to the first pump out and is unable to pump due to bad impeller or an obstruction. Bad impeller means replace pump motor. (not very hard) Check water supply to dishwasher. Valve turned off or line kinked? Filter screen at solonoid valve plugged?

Diswasher motor making noise during wash cycle


It could be the impeller on the motor. The impeller fits over the shaft of the motor and might have split/broken up. That funny noise is probably the shaft spinning inside the damage impeller. Fortunately the impeler is fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe there are one or two parts/covers to remove that are held in by a roughly half dozen torx screws.
