Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB4000 Built-in Dishwasher
When I run my dishwasher the water goes onto the floor. Not down the drain - can you help with what is wrong - it is a maytag.
1. If the water is going onto the floor during the drain cycle there is either a hole in the hose or it is completely loose from the DW or a hole in the drain assembly under the sink but if that were the case you would have water under the sink also.
2. If it during the wash or rinse cycle then the seals are not sealing (door is not closed all the way or seals are bad) or the float at the right front of the DW is stuck allowing the DW to overfill with water.(you need to open the door and pull the float up and out as you do so push it up and down and listen for a clicking sound.(which indicates it is making contact with the fill solenoid)..if you here the clicking and the float is full of gunk (old soap and such) clean it out and replace it and run it through a cycle and monitor the DW to see if the fill cycle shuts off before the water reaches the overflow point.
3. the only other option is a possible rust through on the DW and or the drain and motor mount in the center of the DW where the food particles and water are drained...is loose and leaking or rusted through...(how old is the DW).
4. Also check to see there are no large particles around the door seal to prevent complete closure and sealing of the door seal. As well as the door latching properly (when closed can the door be moved or pulled open)?
I hope this helps and let me know if not Please relay model number, age and other specifics you feel are pertinent...thank you and please rate me if this helped...thanks again ...the Fang

The issue is with the water not draining as something might
be blocking the drain pump assembly thus the water is leaking. To solve this
issue you'll have to take the front lower access panel out and then clean the
drain pump assembly completely, also clean the impeller and chopper assembly
located at the bottom of the unit. After this is done the issue should be
resolved, if not then check the float switch mechanism and make sure that is
fine. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
