Slow Flow - Maytag Dishwaser MDC4100AWE

3 posts in this topic

The tub fills with water, but very little pushes through the jets.  I have tried my best to clean crusted soap and hard water build up out of the jets in both the upper and lower washing arms. I have also checked the "shower" tube to make sure that it is clear of debris.

When I start a rinse or wash cycle, I get a hard burst of water out of all of the jets top and bottom, but it immediately cuts off, pushing a slow pulsating stream of water only about an inch high through the bottom cleaning arm only.  I would appreciate any help someone might be able to offer!

Try putting a couple cups of white vinegar in the tub. Start a cycle and let it run a few minutes, then open the door to stop the cycle. Let it soak a few hours, then close the door and restart the cycle.

If it gets better, you may want to do this a few times to get it cleaned out good.

PS  the house will smell like a pickle factory

If that does not work then you may want to get into the dishwashers pump impeller area and look for a piece of plastic (or similar) that will block the port. Maybe twists after the water pressure is blasting up against it blocks the port. Just a thought. this is the wash impeller
