Maytag Quiet Series 300 smells broken door latch and lower rack

\015 The door latch and lower rack broke and often a terrible smell is emitted when the dishwasher runs. I've discovered this is the black rubber piece which surrounds the inside of the dishwasher. It is literally deterioarting and the dishwasher is not that old! Poor design and makes me think twice about ever buying a Maytag again!\015

Answers :

I have had the same problem and there is a simple fix.
\015\012
\015\012The problem in my case was the floating water sensor was stuck and gummed up with grease.
\015\012
\015\012On the bottom of the dishwasher, in the front right corner there is a round doughnut-looking thing. This is the water level sensor. It is open on the bottom, and grease collects there.
\015\012
\015\012When this happens, the air pocket is too small, and the float won't float. then the dishwasher overflows. To clean it: just reach under with your finger, and scoop out the grease.
\015\012
\015\012Sometimes, after doing this, the float then gets stuck in the "up" position. When this happens, the dishwasher completely drains, and the heater element for the dishwasher is exposed, and food cooks onto it, and that is where the smell is coming from.

The latch won't engage, so the door won't close. Obviously, this means the machine won't operate. We have removed the racks, checked the hinges to see if anything is lodged there and looked to see if anything is in the unit preventing the door from closing. Could the latch be broken? If so, what is involved in the repair?

My maytag quiet series fills with water and then starts for 5 seconds then stops. This happens 4 times and then the entire system just stops. To help troubleshoot I used a screw driver to trigger the closed door so that I could leave the door open when the cycle starts and the pumps seems to be working and water sprays all over the place. I also took apart the impellar blade to make sure there was nothing jammed and everything is clean. Maytag MDB7500AWW
