Will need a model number, but the pump assy of your unit will be full of thick yucky slimy stuff, will need to take the d/w apart and clean all of this stuff out of there.

Try running it empty with cascade detergent (fill the dispenser) and a cup of bleach. Run it on pots and pans cycle, and use the heat options if you have them.

Do this a few times, and leave the door open after the cycle is done.

This might do the job with tearing it apart.

I was afraid no one was going to have any ideas....Nice to hear from you!

The model number isMDB5000AWW....Maytag purchased in fall of 1998...Is this a really hard job?

I haven't had a maytag apart for a while. I would try the cleaning method a few times, before you take anything apart.

When you do dishes, I would use cascade detergent, and completely fill the cups. Also, use the jet dry.
