Question and Answers


My sprayer in my Maytag Diswasher MDB4000AWW is filling with junk how do I clean it so the water will come out


Hi Kathleen,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life. I know how frustrating it can be when appliances do not function properly.

The lower spray arm has a cap that you need to unscrew (see image below) in order to get the spray arm off and gain access to the sump and filter. This will allow you to clean out the trash. Once you have done this and put your dishwasher back together, start a cycle and allow the dishwasher to fill. When you hear the wash motor start to run, slowly open the door and make sure the unit has water in it to just below the heating element. If not your fill valve may be clogged.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
