Question about Dishwashers
Maytag dishwasher quiet series 400 Model MDB7601AWW. Dishes have hard, stuck on grit and food particles, after rinsed and dried. This came up all of a sudden after running fine for two years. I have done all of the troubleshooting solutions like checking water temperatures, etc. The top rack seems to be the worst. Please give me some ideas of what else to try. I'm having to soak and wash dishes twice, help! We have the exact same issue with our Maytag Quiet Series 400 dishwasher. After a wash there's white grit and food particles that we mostly get on the inside of glasses on the top rack, but I've also tried putting the glasses on the bottom rack with the same problem again. Not sure what the problem is but we're getting tired of re-washing many dishes!
Very common problem is soap build up in these machines. Try putting it into a wash cycle with no dishes, and no soap. Let it wash for about 5 minutes, and then open the door. If you see alot of soap suds, then soap build up is the problem. Try doing a couple loads with no soap, and no dishes, and throw a cup of vinegar into the machine halfway through the wash. Repeat as necessary. This should solve your problem.

The problem is two-fold. I have had this issue a couple of times, but the fix is simple. Fill the soap dispenser with white vinegar, then run the dishwasher (empty) on normal, with hi-temp wash selected and heated dry turned off. After this cycle has run, open the dishwasher and check for hair and food on all the sprayer arms. Once removed, it should run like a champ again. However, I have also found that the detergent affects this issue, too. I have to cascade with orange to get the best results. Cheap detergents leave white grit and residue on the dishes. Hope this helps.
