Hello.. I've been having chronic problems with Dishwashers the last 3 years... I'm on my 3rd dishwasher in about 3 1/2 years. This Maytag we have now just died 2 months after warranty expired. I thought if we pay $600+ for a dishwasher it will be one that will last for years.
The motor is making a loud grinding noise. I am able to get the dishes clean, but have to take apart the chopper and clean it after every load. Chopper seems to be working fine, just a lot of noise in the motor. I've ran several loads of CLR through it, and cleaned out everything that I could. Pump bringing in the water is fine.. Pump pushing out the water is fine.. When I first cleaned out the dishwasher.. I found a couple of pieces of broken glass, a garbage bag tie, and some other gunk in there. Any ideas what I can do? I'm in a financial pinch, I can't afford buying new dishwashers every 15 months.
