Question about Maytag Dishwashers
Hello. We do not often use a dishwasher because it is just my wife and I. However, when we leave it idle for a couple of days, water starts to accumulate at the bottom, it rots and then starts to smell. Do you know where this leak could be coming from and how I can fix it? Is there a part that I need to replace?
Two possible sources of water
inlet valve leaking. turn water off after use and if no water accumulates, then cause is leaking valve
if drain is plumbed in to a spigot on the sink trap, then every time you empty water from the sink, some of it goes down to the washer
cure by taking the drain hose up as far as possible under the sink in a swan neck
