Question and Answers

Q:

How to remove and clean the accumulator in my dishwasher?

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I must assume you want to remove the filter/flowplate assembly. In order to remove the filter/flowplate assembly you will need to remove the screw in the center of the wash impeller and then remove the impeller. Once the impeller has been removed then you can lift the filter/flow plate assembly out. I hope this is helpful. You may also need to remove and clean the over-pressure filter located on the main manifold located at the back wall inside the tub as too.

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

Q:

What would be causing a loud rumbling type noise in my Maytag dishwasher?

A:

The noise could be caused by various objects or a failure in the motor shaft or wash impeller shaft. The motor shaft and the wash impeller shaft should be examined for any failures. Most likely you will find a broken wash impeller drive shaft or stripped motor shaft.

Hard Object Noise:

If the noise is a popping, rattling, grinding, or a low pitch screeching sound, then the pump should be disassembled and the object removed. The hard object is typically located in the sump area of the tub or sitting on the motor mounting plate. For a low pitch screeching sound, the object is typically found lodged in the holes of the chopper plate or stuck to the end of the chopper blade. The size of the hard object could range from a small piece of pecan shell to larger objects like screws, bread ties, broken pieces of plastic, or Saranâ„¢ wrap.

High Pitch Squeal:

If the noise sounds like feedback from a speaker or a high pitch squeal, disassemble the pump and look for objects lodged in the chopper plate. Objects lodged in the chopper plate, or thin plastic Saranâ„¢ wrap pieces stuck to the chopper blade can emit a squeal. Replace the wash motor if there are NO objects found in the pump, and the source of the high pitch squeal has been determined to be in the wash motor itself.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dishwasher.
