I have found this unit to be leaking in the rear lower left corner where the bracket for the support member connects to the exterior of the tub. also its leaking on the front right lower corner. I had to replace the oem flex hose system that was found to have cracked and was leaking during the drain cycle. any suggestions on how to stop it from leaking? It looks like it is spot welded at the seam where the side meets the bottom of the tub

Re: maytag mdb8750aws seal failure
If im reading thiscorrectly you have a crack in the tub itseslf that scausing the leak??? this is a stainless stee ltank correct??? the only repair for such a problem is replacing the entire tank assy, and dependong on age this part may or may not be available, that being said, i would check to see if you can find you use and care manual, and look up your warr in the outer tub, usually its multi year if not lifetime against manu defects, in which case youll need to contact maytag for the reapir, ive seen them have to change out 10yrold d/w cause they didnt have repacemnet tubs and the warr state dtehy would replace free of charge if occourred, so def. lookl for your manual

f you have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using a detergent that is sudsing too much. Cut back on the amount of detergent you use, and see if that makes a difference. Water that spills through the door vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment.
Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).
Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses. The pump seal may be defective, too; replacing this is a job for an appliance repairperson.
An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.Rate the solution..
Check the drainage hose to see if its connected properly. it is located under the unit. it may be loose or, not connected correctly. if the drainage hose is connected properly, this will be a faulty water valve. replace if found to be faulty.
Try to touch the lower door seal, it sometimes jumps out of its place when you open the dishwasher door. You may consider replacing the seal with a new one, I have to push the seal on my dishwasher to its proper place before every cycle. It is quite annoying, but free :-)
I just fixed my washer!!! had power to control board. romoved lower panels openned connection box ( one screw) cut and cleaned wires and reconnected to power line that runs to the plug. Did it twice and finally got a good connection started right up. WAS just about to order a new circuit board. SAVED MYSELF $100.00 !!!!!
I just found a service release number for my Frigidaire dishwasher that says it applies to Serial numbers TH632 through serial number TH737 made in 2007 for a replacement kit for the door seal at the bottom of the door. The bottom door seal has been changed, adding side seals that restrict the water surge from the center spray arm. The part number for the new seal is p/n 154588201. This seal can be replaced without removing the dishwasher or either of the door panels. The seal is located on the bottom of the inner door panel and appears as a cream colored flexible rubber blade bonded to a milky white colored plastic strip. To remove and properly install replacement follow the instructions carefully. 1. Replacing this seal can be accomplished without disconnecting power from the unit. Always use extra care when electrical power is present while serving an appliance. 2. Open door all the way down and remove lower rack. Set rack aside to a safe location. 3. Locate the seal on the bottom of inner door panel. Facing front of unit, the right side of the seal can be pulled down slightly to facilitate removal. 4. Pull seal straight into the tub from right side. 5. With seal removed, and before installing replacement seal, locate the channel in inner door panel that the seal mounts into. Locating this channel before installing the replacement can make this procedure easier. SERVICE FLASH DW071 6. Place the new seal on a flat surface and measure from the bottom of the seal, (See Figure 1 to determine bottom of seal), up 3/8 "of an inch and place a mark with a pen or marker on both ends (See Figure 2). If needed, scribe a straight line between these two marks this will give you a guide when installing seal into the inner door panel. 7. The seal can only be installed one way. The end that holds this seal into the inner door panel has a ½ inch notch cut in the right side. This notch allows the seal to be installed around the end of the inner door channel that holds the seal. 8. Line up the seal along the bottom of the inner door panel and start from the right side, push the seal into the door channel to the line marked in step #6. 9. With seal in place close the door, the tub will align the seal as needed. 10. Reinstall lower rack and operate unit to check for leaks. If leaks continue to occur at the bottom corners, order Splash shield kit 154701001 for dishwasher.
Before installing the kit remove and reinstall the lower door seal. To install the lower seal make sure you measure up from the bottom of the seal 3/8 of an inch and mark the seal, do this on both ends. This locates how far down the seal needs to be before closing the door. Do not install this seal without measuring it first. After the lower door seal has been re-installed then install the splash shields according to the instructions accompanying with the kit.
