I have a maytag MDBD850AWB dishwasher. Although water is running, I have a feeling both spinners are not spinning. I keep testing by putting them in a certain position & after opening find both arms in the same position. When I initially start the cycle, can hear water hitting the door, but this stops after awhile. Dishes not getting cleaned.
its sounds like you not getting enough water in this. how much is in the bottom of the tub after it fills? let me know thanks Bryan

The bottom of the tub is pretty full when I open it. I checked the bottom arm to see if the holes were blocked by debris but they are clear. The soap dispenser opens but about 1/2 of the soap is left in the cups.
more than likely you have a bad pump impeller in this, Part(NNN) NNN-NNNN width= this is the kit. you need to replace this if you dont hear the water splashing around inside the machine. you can purchase this here, it usually comes with instuctions. hope this helps, Bryan

Ive been pretty busy myself. I will try this! Thanks so much.

Do I accept now or when I put the part in? I think this was helpful & hopefully takes care of the problem.

you can accept now and still come back and ask more questions at no extra charge. just leave the question open. thanks Bryan
