Customer Question
Hello. I have a maytag...
Hello. I have a maytag dishwasher (about 5 years old) and its seems to no longer want to drain properly. Essentially what is happening is that water just pools down at the bottom of the dishwasher and becomes very stagnate, however, there seems to be no leaking or overflow (so Im guessing that means it is draining something). The water at the bottom of the washer is pretty substantial. Also, the washer no longer cleans properly and it leaves a terrible residue on all the dishes. Thx!
