Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My dishwasher is leaking... I have a seal but dont know how to replace it its a maytag dishwasher


Answers :

If you are talking about the seal that goes around the door, it simply inserts into a groove around the perimeter of the tub facing. Just follow these steps:
\015\012
\015\0121. Remove old seal by pulling it from the groove around the perimeter of the tub facing and clean the area to ensure it is free of food debris and/or sopa deposits. This will ensure the new seal seats properly. Also clean the facing of the door interior where it meets the door seal.
\015\0122. Take the new tub seal and locate the center mark. This is usually a small paint spot or small groove. If there is no center mark on the seal, fold it in half and mark this spot with your fingers.
\015\0123. Insert the seal at the top center portion of the tub facing at the center mark of the seal.
\015\0124. Push seal into the groove and work your way around the tub facing all the way to the bottom along each side. You can remove the seal and readjust as necessary.
\015\012
\015\012Once the seal is in place, close the door and compress. The door will shut tight for a while until the new seal breaks in.
\015\012
\015\012If you have questions, or if this isn't the seal you are talking about, please post back and elaborate more on what you need assistance with. Please include your full model number so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance. I hope you find this information helpful.

My LG dishwasher -LDF7810st has been a huge problem from the beginning. However I will just focus on the current issue. Previously it was leaking and I kept towels under the dishwasher.

No one seems to know and I dont want to spend $250 to find out. I remember a previous post that said their was a design flaw with a part of this but cannot f

My Maytag Quiet Series 300 (Model #MDBTT79AWW) leaks about cup of water a minute. I've removed everything from inside the dishwasher.

I have a Maytag DWU8250BAX and the thing leaks like crazy. I just replaced the door gasket, but that is not the problem. When I took a closer look at the door it seems as though the water is getting up and into the door through a space in the bottom of the door. It seems to me like there should be another door seal to fill a gap that sits between the door hinges. If anyone knows if there should be a seal here and then what the part number might be that would be great. Thanks!

Dishwasher leaking We bought our dishwasher in Sep/07, it was fine for a year, then started leaking out the bottom of the door on the left. We had the seal on the door replaced (didn't work) and then the door gasket replaced. That worked for less than a year, now it is leaking again in the same place. What could be going on? Have already put $400.00 repairs into this machine and am reluctant to put more money in to have it break again the same way. What do you suggest?
