Hello, welcome to FixYa.
I understand you have a Maytag dishwasher based on your post, correct ? If so could you post a reply with the model number of this machine and I'll see what I can find for you. There were some recalls on Maytag units a while back, but I don't want to speculate...it's better to wait for the model number, in fact a serial number as well would be even more beneficial.
I look forward to your reply and assisting you going forward. I hope you can appreciate there are many scenarios even within the "Maytag" brand. Thank you. Regards, Macmarkus :)
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..
if the dishwasher is leaking water there is no recall on that. the recall i believe you are talking about would be for the rinse aide leaking in the door. you should contact maytag to see about getting the new kit installed on your dishwasher and you may get your leak fixed for free since the kit comes with the door seal. You can contact maytag at (800) 675-0535 do not wait and do not use the dishwasher. you will need the model number and serial number off your machine when you call. it is located near the door seal on the tub.
when in the wash phase, listen for a low hum near the wash pump. if you hear this it indicates the wash pump capacitor is faulty or something jammed in the pump.after that you will have to access the wash pump and check if there is any supply to it
