Having problems with your Maytag MDB7100AWB Dishwasher ?

I have a Magtag dishwaher that is leaking out of the bottom right hand corner somewhere. It is at least 10 years old, works great otherwise. What should I do ? Is it an easy fix? Is it worth it to fix it or toss it?


Answers :

I will assume the leak is at the front on one of the corners of the door. We had this problem and it appeared to be caused by someone mistakenly placing too much weigh on the door when it was open. Our solution was to bend the door back in the opposite direction to get it "re-aligned". Hope it works for you too.

Regretfully ours just died after 10 years of service. Hoping to find a repair manual online.

I have an old Bauknecht dishwasher GSF 3160 S that a friend gave us 10 years ago. It was stored for that time, and now if I try to use it, it leaks out through the bottom and floods the kitchen. I would like to know 1) is it worth fixing from the point of view of how energy/water efficient (or inefficient) an old dishwasher is - if you know the specs for this particular machine, and 2) what needs to be changed if it is worthwhile fixing. I don't know what else might not work, because I only pu

I have a Frigidaire Professional series less than five years old. It won't run and flashes the wash, clean, and sanitize lights simultaniously. Any thoughts on what the problem is and whether it is worth fixing? This is the second Frigidaire I have had in ten years. The model number is PLD2851RDC3. Any help would be greatly appreciated before I go out and get my third dishwasher in ten years!

Dishwasher just started leaving food residue on dishes after washing. We usually don't rinse beforehand but even when we do this it's still happening. Can I run something thru a cycle to give the washer a good clean out? I've cleaned the filter (nothing there), tried to clean the spinning arm as well as I could and looked for any other food that might be clogging things up. Dishwasher came house - think it's about 6-8 years old. Otherwise works great.

I have an 8 year-old Kenmore 665.16912 dishwasher. Worked fine until two days ago. Then it stopped working altogether: nothing lights up on the front panel. I have checked the 120 in the electrical box, the door switch is working, the thermal fuse is working and there is 120 volts at the white and black connections to the timer control board. I bought a new timer control board for $120 and that did not fix the problem. What else could be causing the unit to completely stop working?

My dishwasher is only 2 years old. My small coffee shop is in an area where we have large quantities of lime. At this point in time the repair people have been out two times and this is not fixed.

With no water entering, the small amount of water in there is rising in temperature quickly if the gauge is working. The technician that have be

I have a GE Triton XL dishwasher that all of the sudden stopped cleaning well. I now find food residue on the dishes, and the detergent cup does not empty completely. I use the gel detergent, and I just see the gel dripping down the door after the cycle is complete. This machine is about 5 years old, and I'm looking to see if it can be easily fix. I rather not have to call someone to tell me that I have to get a new one, or pay more to fix it that what it is worth. Thanks

I have a dishlex 750 eco. The control panel has not lights, but the internal dishwasher light still works. The repair guy said it needs a new circuit board, and not worth fixing. He could sell a reco one cheaper, although this machine is old it has hardly done any work. any thoughts? thanks dave..


The tech is quite correct, with this unit, the best thing to do is nothing. You need to put any prospective money that was going to be used for repair into NEW one with a full warranty, that way you can be sure of a reliable unit.\015\012\015\ ... Dishwashers
