Question about Maytag MDB9600A Jetclean II Built-in Dishwasher
I get a few ounces of water every cycle right above the float switch that shuts off the fill valve when the float rises to indicate correct water level. There is a riser molded in the case floor about 2" high that the float sits on. The only two things I can figure is the water is washing/surging up under the float and out, or there's a minute crack in the case near the riser. There's soap buildup on the limit switch, but not near the wire connections, so everything functions properly. Any ideas to repair? This is 10 years old and we use Electrosol dishwasher tablets, so over sudsing shouldn't be an issue. Not sure how to remove the float.. whether it just pulls up or something underneath has to be taken apart.
Thanks very much.
Agree 100 pct. After close inspection of the float assembly I passed on its removal and opted for the very high tech solution of using the top of a spray paint can as the overflow drippage receptor. It does evaporate within 24 hours.
We may try another soap when we run out of the Electrosol tabs we have.

I have the same problems. I've noticed that the Electrasol tablets do create a fair amount of suds, so I switched back to powder.
I determined that the suds were rising up under the float and leaking around the shaft. Do not remove the float! I tried and broke the float trying to unscrew the nut. Fortunately, the new float was only a few dollars, but replacing the float did not change anything.
I solved the issue by placing a shallow plastic box under the float. I think it was the top of a box that candy came in. The amount of water that leaks is small enough that it evaporates before leaking out onto the floor.
