Question and Answers

Q:

DETERGENT CUP FULL DOOR OPEN MDBD850AWW Maytag Dishwasher

A:

Thank You for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com

I understand your frustration when your dishwasher doesn't empty the detergent cup. After researching your model there are a couple reasons for this issue. First, if you have hard water or calcium build on inside your dishwasher this will decrease you water pressure dramatically. We recommend using a cleaner to remove the mineral and calcium deposits from your dishwasher once a month. This will also prolong the life of the internal parts like the pump and spray arms. I have included a link to our PartsDirect page where you can a purchase Affresh-Dishwasher Cleaner. Just click the blue link below to be taken to the page.

The other reason could be the water is not hot enough to dissolve the detergent. Are your dishes hot when you take them out of the dishwasher? If there are not hot, then you may have a problem with the heating element.

If you need further assistance, please let me know. Thanks for visiting SearsPartsDirect.com
