My Maytag MDB9150AWS is no longer working due to what I believe is a electrical fire in the front control panel as there was smoke coming out of the top of the front panel. There were no flames but the smell took your breath away. We had to open the Kitchen windows and door for several hours to try to get rid of the smell, but you can still smell it by the dishwasher. This model is not part of the recall. Has anyone else had a similar problem with this model?


My dishwasher (same make and model) had a similar problem except I did see some sparks coming out from th front on the side of it (on Thanksgiving Day no less - a lot of manual diswahing followed). What the problem ultimatly was is what I believe to ... Dishwashers

I have a Kenmore Model 665.15955792 dishwasher. Water is leaking out the bottom of the door. I changed the door seal and the defusers but it continued. I took off the front of the door and I see the water filling into the base of the machine. When the dishwasher starts the cleam cycle, water is pushed up into the small square holes in the bottom of the door and then splashes up over the lip of the door and out onto the floor. It has never done this before, just started recently. I have had the d

Maytag Dishwasher Quiet Series 300 Door Leak: Model No. MDB8600AWG: The door leaks both from just beneath the touch pad at the top of the door, leaving a streak down the center face of the door (minor annoyance) as well as from the bottom left and right corners, more of a concern. I have cleaned both door gaskets and tried to reseat the inside door panel, to no avail. There appears to be a way to adjust the door travel (the door sags almost completely to the floor when opened), but I have yet to

I don't have a model number right now, but the front door on my Admiral dishwasher is leaking at the bottom. I have changed the gasket inside the door panel at the bottom but it still leaks. This is a rental property and the renters did a job on this dishwasher. I was wondering if they may have pulled another lower gasket off that I didn't know existed. Something like a windshield wiper. The seal I changed was a foam strip 3 x 22 approx. Thanks for your time, Joan

Water leaks from underneath the unit. Water only leaks when the pump cuts on (pressurizes). It leaks down on to the hose connecting to the water inlet valve on the right hand side of the unit when looking at the door of the unit. When the unit is full of water and the motor / pump is not running the unit does not leak. This unit is a Maytag jetclean dishwasher Model DWU9200BAB about 12 years old

Kenmore model#587(Frigidaire) leaks under door. New install.
