Having problems with your Maytag MDB6000 Dishwasher ?

Water leaking after cleaning filter

\015 I pulled the dishwasher apart to clean it. I cleaned the filter, etc, and then put it back together. I thought I put it back together properly, but when I started it up, water leaked on to the floor. I'm wondering if I put the washers in the wrong spot???? Would anybody have any suggestions besides letting my husband fix things from now on. LMAOThanks so much!\015

Answers :

Sounds like a washer problem. Either the wrong ones or did you forge to clean the washers before reinstalling them?

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

Smeg e2 error (water level tripped). Filter is clean and no rubbish below filter on inside of dishwasher. I have taken the front panel off but am not sure where the float device is located - I am wondering if it is just to the left of what looks like a solenoid. There is no water in the base of the unit in the front panel so would rule out any leaks. Reset program and turned off power at socket but still not using hot water. Possible PCB issue ? Any advice appreciated. Smeg DI612C Dishwasher.

Hello, I have a problem with our Miele G646SC Plus dishwasher. It starts its cycle OK, draining out any residual water, taking in fresh water and doing the initial rinse. After about 5 minutes it then stops with the "inlet/drain" red light flashing. The detergent is still in the holder and the water is still cold. The filter at the bottom of the compartment is clean, the drain pump spins freely. I've also checked for any leaks in the bottom of the machine that would trip the styrofoam/microsw

I dont believe that the filter problem is related to the leak, You need to check all the way around the bottom of the tub and everything that connects through it. Check for loose parts etc. Also you might want to make sure that it is not overfilling. ... Dishwashers

My Bosch dishwasher SGS46E26GB/90 makes a knocking noise when started. the timer does not advance and the check water light comes on.There is water in the bottom (up to the bottom of the door) . If I reset the DW the water drains ok. If I mess with the buttons E3 shows on the display the 'quick' light stays on and the eco light flashes. I've checked the filter where the water hose is fastens to the rear. I've cleaned the filters at the bottom of the DW and cleaned out the pump area under them.

Hi, I have a Miele dishwasher G2150 that after 7-10 minutes on any cycle the rinse, dry, and end lights flash amber.

Water seems to be leaking into the dishwasher at the end of the cycle the water appears to be clean, so I am wondering about a seal of some kind on the hot water line leaking or whatever. It is a Bosch Dishwasher SHU series 3200 My problem is the same. Water leaks in to bottom of dishwasher over about a 2-3 day period. The dishwasher runs fine. It does not ever run over.

Hi, I have a Fisher Paykel DD603I (integrated) dishdrawer unit.

Water problem Hi, I have a Jenn air DW 711 that does not get water. I checked the following: Water line: I unhooked the water line and it is clear & free flowing.

I have been negligent in not cleaning out the filters and after the unit more or less stopped, I pulled the two filters finding them full of what looked like soap scum.

I have a Miele G892 SC dishwasher. When I start the cycle, it drains (except for a bit of water left below the triple filter). After that, the intake valve opens and water enters.

Westinghouse Virtuoso 922 dishwasher. Wash cycle completes, but water does not drain out. If I let the cycle continue, after a delay the rinse cycle starts, but of course no clean water is pumped in so the dishes are "rinsed" in the dirty wash water. The wash cycle itself is successful with water pumping all around the washer if I open the door mid-cycle. I have removed and cleaned all filters which were correctly fitted so I am confident there is no foreign matter inside pump. When the water sh
