Customer Question

Hi there - I have a Maytag QuietSeries 300 dishwasher that's only 18 months old. The other day, it started making a grinding noise during the wash and rinse cycles. I pulled the lower panel out and it appears to be coming from the drive motor. Some of the dishes also have a lot of residue on them when it's done washing. Is this a common problem and what might be the fix, or where should I start looking?
