Having problems with your Maytag MDB7100AWB Dishwasher ?

Dishwasher is leaking out the left side of the door. I replaced the gasket, but leaking still occurs. What next?


Answers :

I also would have expected the seal,but since this was already rectified, you may want to try these solutions;
\015\012Door is out of alignment?
\015\012Is the water temperature above 160oF?
\015\012If the water temperature is higher than 160oF, lower the water heater thermostat setting to 120oF. If extremely high-temperature water is used, water tends to leak at the very beginning of the cycle in a cold dishwasher.
\015\012Is the dishwasher level?
\015\012Make sure the dishwasher is level. The dishwasher must be supported by the leveling legs and rear wheels and must be flat on the floor.
NOTE: Some models will have four leveling legs
The dishwasher must also be square in the cabinet. If the tub opening is not square, the door will not seal properly. This is the responsibility of the customer or installer.
\015\012Is water pooling at the base of the unit?
\015\012Check that the water supply line is properly connected.
\015\012Is water dripping from the front of the unit?
\015\012Check for oversudsing which may appear as a leak from the corners.
\015\012Was the lower rack empty?
\015\012If no dishes were in the lower rack, the dishwasher may leak because of the spray directly hitting the door.
\015\012Was something in the rack (such as a pan) facing the door seal?
\015\012Water could have deflected off the pan and through the seal.

Kenmore model#587(Frigidaire) leaks under door. New install. Had machine for a year plus before install. took off front panel- can see water squirting past lower door gasket as wash arms rotate. cause is water running down door during wash cycle piles up in the channels molded into the lower left & right side of the wash tub and pushes out the sides of the lower gasket. looks like a design issue- called SEARS, they just want to sell me a new gasket! go figure. any ideas on a fix?

Door leak The dishwasher is 2 and half year old and is randomly leaking for at least one year or even more. The leak originally occurred at both lower ends of the door, close to the hinges. The leak was about one liter and the door panel sound insulation soaked with water. After door panel was removed, the leak location was identified at both ends of the lower door gasket.

Water leak have the Ge triton dishwasher (Model # GSD5320D02BB, bought it n 2001) and currently have very small amount of water leaking out of the door during a run cycle. I did check levels when running and that seems to be fine......meaning the dishwasher is level and not an over-flow problem. My next thought is maybe it is a faulty door gasket. So my question is, where is the door gasket located and how do I replace it? (and where do I order this part from?). Looked for diagrams to follow and

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

Dishwasher leaking We bought our dishwasher in Sep/07, it was fine for a year, then started leaking out the bottom of the door on the left. We had the seal on the door replaced (didn't work) and then the door gasket replaced. That worked for less than a year, now it is leaking again in the same place. What could be going on? Have already put $400.00 repairs into this machine and am reluctant to put more money in to have it break again the same way. What do you suggest?
