maytag dishwasher dwu9200aax doesn't washes dishes
« on: June 14, 2013, 03:28:00 PM »
I have dishwasher maytag DWI9200aax and it makes a noise as it really works but the dishes coming out in the way they were put it. "Garbage in - garbage out". We tried all king of dish detergent, we tried different modes and the result the same - the dishes coming out as they were put in - dirty. The soap dispenser is not completely emptied. There are traces of soup left in dispenser and on the door. I tried to take it apart but come to the bottom and bottom parts are not coming out. I thought that there must be some way to remove everything completely to clean everything. Is there a youtube to show how to take apart this dishwasher?

Pump and filter is probably plugged up with limescale and calcium. Take the 6 screws off the top of the pump area (#20 torq ?)and lift, then clean screen and back flush arms. Reinstall and run a bottle of Dishwasher Magic and you are done.

Does it fill with water?
Do wash arms rotate?
Place a glass upright in the top rack and run a wash cycle for 5 minutes.
Is the glass full of water?

I looked inside during operation and saw the following:
the upper arm is not rotating at all and water is not coming out.
the lower arm is not rotating either but the water is running out very well.
Before that we cleaned both arms and they don't have any blocks. All holes are cleaned. May be I put together wrong way or something like that.

I took apart again and found that there is one ring seal missing. I ordered one and will wait for delivery. When I'll put all together again, I'll try your suggestion.
Thank you.
