Maytag Dishwasher Care and Maintenance

We purchased our Maytag Jetclean EQ Plus dishwasher in about 2001. It is Model MDB7130AWW. Here are our notes about its care and maintenance, including the Maytag manual.

Here is a photo of our Maytag Jetclean EQ Plus dishwasher - we have the white version of it.

The dishwasher has a touch screen interface. We have never had any issues with the touch screen interface failing.

The liner, on the other hand, had numerous issues over the years. So I describe the liner issues in the below pages. Water would leak out through the lining on the dishwasher and create large puddles on the floor when the dishwasher was run. The image above has the kick plate removed on the dishwasher, so that we could get to the levelling feet and try levelling the dishwasher to see if that would help out. It did not. It was the actual black rubber lining which was at fault.

We tried contacting Maytag since the lining is covered by a warranty. However, even though the manual says in large letters that repairs to the lining will be FREE, they insisted we had to pay $125 to pay for a service man to come out and install that lining. The lining is just a plastic loop which costs maybe $10 I would imagine. We asked them to just ship us that lining. They refused, saying that the only way we could get our free lining was to pay $125 for their repairman to come to our house.

We cover that situation in these pages too.

Please let me know if you have any questions about the Maytag Jetclean EQ Plus dishwasher!
