Having problems with your Maytag Dishwasher ?

Water backing up inside dishwasher even when dishwasher is not on.


Answers :

You might have an issue with the solenoid or the pump is backflowing water. If the seals are getting weak they can't hold back the water pressure. It is cheaper to install a ballcock valve on the water lines and turn them off when not in use. You could replace everything at some point, but this is the cheapest and easiest way.

We are having water leak from the bottom of our Roper Dishwasher door. THe model # is RUD5750DG3. I have taken the inside door frame off and found a small white rubber seal had dislodged inside. i placed it back in the only sopt it fits but water is still leaking. I have checked to make sure the water is not leaking from any where else on the dishasher. This occurs when the water inside is spraying and eventually fills up on the bottom. We no longer have our manual as the dishwasher cam

I have a Bosch dishwasher, model #SHU43C02UC/14, which has stopped working - no water enters the inside nor is there any drain cycle - just nothing. At the same time, I had to have the new control board put in as part of the Bosch recall. The tech comes out, puts in the new board - still nothing. He says something is wrong with the board even though the problem existed before the new board was installed. He takes everything back to his shop and tells me he's trying to contact Bosch tech support

Bosch logixx dishwasher sounds like its running continuously & will go through entire program but does not fill or wash. Filled it with hot water manually to try for air locks & it does drain out. Then continues to attempt to drain even while door is opened. My amateur guess is that its a float switch but can I get at it from the inside or from the back? If thats what it is. Hope you can help,thanks.John

Leaky Dishwasher I recently moved into a new house that has a brand new Magic Chef dishwasher. We haven't even had a chance to use it, but last night discovered water leaking from the bottom onto the floor. When I opened the door, there was about 3-4 inches of water inside. I baled as much of the (slimey) water out as I could, and that stopped the leak. Now afraid to run the dishwasher for fear that it might leak even worse. E71195 Type 777-0

I have a LG Dishwasher LD 14AW3 it fills and runs for about 30 min. It then appears that when it tries to rinse it cannot get water and flashes "1E". I disconnected the unit and when I moved it out of its position water was leaking from the bottom of the unit. after cleaning out the inside filter & the hard water filter I re-connected and found it worked. I ran a dishwasher cleaner through it at high temp. After a few loads the problem has come back. It is now located in MY garage waiting for me

My dishwasher came with styrofoam placed between the top and the inside , a foam sheet and cardboard screwed to the back. Is this the packaging and does it need to be removed before installation? The picture in the instruction manual does not advise you to unscrew the back packaging. Even though I attempted to remove the foam sheet it is stuck under the sides at the back of the dishwasher.

BF41 Dishwasher with a leak stuck in mid cycle Hi, I have a 'general domestic Appliance Ltd' BF41 (95+G709394) dishwasher which recently started leaking at the door.

A couple of day ago I couldn't stop it leaking and now it's stuck in mid cycle and even though the water is washing inside the machine it never gets hot inside or finishes the cycle.

There is always condensation on the inside of the door and some water on the floor of the machine after washing. The main thing is the foul odor that is inside the machine after a day of sitting with dishes in it. I have checked for obstructions and there are none visible and I have washed the little basket. Nothing advised in the manuel seems to help, although the odor problem is not mentioned in the manuel. I HATE THIS DISHWASHER! I wish I had my former, much less expensive Maytag back.

I have an Asko D3230 which has activated what is probably the overfilling protection and the pump continues to run. The overfill activated because we had to pull out the machine to get to something and when putting back in there was a kink in the hose. Then we ran a cycle and the water wouldn't drain out. There is now no kink and we have removed all the water we can find. It is now completely empty but the pump continues to run even when the dishwasher is switched off, e.g. the off switch an

GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher has power because pressing cancel causes dishwasher to start draining (even though there is no water). Door switch works because opening door prevents starting drain cycle. No other button on control panel will work except for the 'air dry' / 'lockout' button.
