Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Maytag My Maytag dishwasher is leaking from the bottom. It is a mdbh940aww. it was never used before. It was wrapped in the plastic wrap when I bought the house in 2005. Now the old one just went and I want to put this one in. It fit nicely, works great but leaks all over the floor. It is level and I check most of the parts. I put a mirror underneath and it looks like the rubber thing isnt looking too good. Do I replace this? If so how?


Answers :

I also had a mdbh940aww that leaked from underneath. You need to check out where the water is leaking from. Unscrew and remove the bottom front panel so you can view under the dishwasher. Start up the dishwasher and using a flashlight see where the water is dripping from.. Obviously don't touch any wires nor even the leaking water while it is live. If it is coming out of the motor then you probably have a bad WASH MOTOR SEAL and you will need to buy a WASH MOTOR SEAL KIT (Seal and Chopper Kit) ... I think I paid $25. I noticed that they re-engineered the replacement part out of metal to replace the original plastic part which strips. So I replaced the seal kit which solved the leak problem... but I still have some residue on glasses. It may be due to a small rip in the filter material on the FILTER/FLOWPLATE ASSEMBLY (Accumulator)... that I noticed... a $35 part... I am going to take mine back apart and see if I can glue the rip with some silicone sealant. You can view the schematic and get parts at partselect.com although I think I ordered from a cheaper store but I cannot remember what that was. Goodluck!

Leaking Dishwasher seems to be leaking. Otherwise it's performing fine. I have laminate floors, and there are water seeping out along the seams of the flooring area near the dishwasher. The dishwasher is captured by the floor (dishwasher was installed first then floor was put in at 1/2" higher level), so we can't pull it out to check where the leak is coming from. Can dishwasher be repaired from the inside w/out removing it from where it is? Only way to pull it out seem to be cutting a part of

Hi my L G dish washer is coming up with E1 . It comes on after about 2 min it takes water into the washer then it hummes for about 30 seconds then comes up with E1 and pumps water back out. I have checked the hoses which don't appear to be leaking -I read somewhere in your answers about this problem that it could be the Water Level in Drum lowering, this means there is a leak on one of the pipes. More likely it is the Circulation Pump, which is responsible for pushing the water to the Spray

Dishwasher Leak I found water on the floor in front of my dishwasher one morning so I removed the panel and ran the dishwasher to check for leaks and found none.

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

My Maytag model mdb9600aws motor shaft seal is leaking. How do I remove the seal and replace a new one. I am a novist, but I have taken the motor completely out and replaced the seal / gasket that the motor sits in, but there still is a leak. I am afraid the leak is going to destroy the motor as it has corrosion / salt like stuff about the motor. I have attempted to pry the shaft off with the use of 2 screw drivers. I was thinking since I am going to replace the whole motor shaft seal and chop

We have an LG dishwasher LD14AT1 P/No 3850ED3005R. It kept signalling an error to do with a leak- all hoses etc were checked, one relaced but no fault was found, so we had a repair man come out and he repalced the electronic board at a cost of $200.00. The error still kept signalling (by the dinging sound). It was then discovered that the appliance had rusted and there was in fact a leak in the base of the machine, not a fault in the electronics. The machine has just remained idle since. I belie
