Question about Dishwashers

Maytag dishwasher quiet series 400. Dishes have hard stuck on grit and food particles after rinsed and dried.

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.

There is food and grit stuck to my glasses. Where is this coming from? I am rinsing all the dishes before I put them in , so it must be in the dishwasher somewhere,


We used to have this problem with a Kenmore that had a built-in "garbage disposal"--it was a little blade that ground up larger food particles. Occasionally a cherry or olive pit would get inside and dull, chip or break the blade, and the symptom was food particles on the dishes. The solution was to replace the grinder.

Dishwasher deposits dirt on dishes. Grit, small particles.


I have the same problem. We cleaned the dishwasher out because the grit was coming from the dishwasher...however, we still have dirt/grit in our dishes, but a lot less. How do we get rid of this all together?

I have a Maytag Quiet Series 400 and I can't get it to run on Normal,lite or other. I get a code 82 that appears. What does this mean?


My Maytag quiet 400 series is doing the same thing-buttons aren't responding or working. And now a second problem...it has become very loud and sounds like it is chewing up all the dishes.

Food particles and spots on dishes


Are the holes in the spray arms clogged? That will cause it and they're not too hard to clean out.
