Resolved Question:

Our Maytag dishwasher does not seem to be fully washing the dishes. The door where you put the soap is open after the entire cycle finishes, but a wet, soggy version of about half the soap is still in the door. What might be the cause?

Hi, Thank you for using justanswer for your appliance questions!

The first thing you need to do is clean your dishwasher. Dishwashers get a film inside and throughout the pump and filter system and will plug up orifices and check valves. There are a couple of products to use, you can find them locally at the better grocery chains. Look for them where the dishwasher detergents are stored. Look for a product called GLISTEN. Use 2 packages to clean your dishwasher. Follow the instructions on the pack but use 2 packages.Run the cycle on the pots and pans and on the hi temp wash. Buy some CASCADE ACTION PACKS, this is the strongest detergent on the market. Turn your rinse aid dispenser down to #1. The adjustment is under the cap. Try these first before you get into the pump or spray arms.

Hope this helps!
