Freddy K for Model Number mdb9600awb maytag quiet series

ANSWER Freddy, The first place to start, is the water level and water temperature in the bottom of the tub, on the first fill of a wash cycle. Remove the lower rack. Start the dishwasher in any cycle, allow the unit to fill and wash for 3 to 5 minutes. Unlatch the door and wait a few seconds to open it. The water level in the bottom should cover the lower portion of the heating element(at the least), and shouild have a temperature of 120 dgrs.F minimum. If either conditions are low, you will not recieve a proper wash action in the dishwasher, during the cycle. Also check for "foaming", in recent times some of the dishwasher chemicals have had a tendency to "foam up" due to a reaction between the rinse agent and certain types of liquid detergents, you may want to return to using a "plain" (no additives) powderred detergent.
