I cannot get my dishes washed as the soap pod dispenser keeps spitt5ing the pod out into the bottom of the washer with/out use?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your washing machine? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

It is a Maytag approximately two years old, purchased 12/2015, mod- MDB4949SDH2, Ser-F54919268. I am very frustrated!

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I not too technically involved.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Let's get the fix going.
