MAYTAG MDBO880AWB LEAKS FROM LEFT SIDE DOOR ONLY SOMETIMES AND

I HAVE A MAYTAG MDBO880AWB DISHWASHER ABOUT 4 YEARS OLD. IT LEAKS FROM THE LEFT SIDE OF THE DOOR ONLY SOMETIMES . THE DOOR FROM THE LEFT SIDE LOOKS LIKE IT HAS A BIGGER GAP THEN THE RIGHT SIDE WHEN THE DOOR IS CLOSED. WHEN THE DOOR IS OPEN IT DOES NOT LAY FLAT AS THE SPRING IS VERY STRONG AND LIFTS THE DOOR UP HALF WAY. I NEED TO PULL OUT THE BOTTOM RACK TO KEEP THE DOOR OPEN. I SUSPECT ONE OF MY KIDS LEANED DOWN ON THE DOOR VERY HARD ( OR SAT ON IT) AND POSSIBLY CHANGED THE SPRING SET UP ON THE DOOR HING???? WHICH NOTCH DOES THE SPRING BELONG ON???? ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED. THANKS

If the door is sprung in a manner that one side is flush and not other then most likely the hinge has been bent outward by the weight placed on it.the best solution would be to replace hinge,the spring only adjusts the tension for door closing. There is a slight possibility that either the frame or the door has bent in this manner so before buying hinge check frame and door for damage,after doing repair would suggest adjusting front legs of unit to raise front up a bit to ensure leaking wont continue

    Best advice without visual on unit is compare to other side and set both same.

Our Maytag dishwasher model MDB4000 leaks from the door, but not every use. The leak started just on the left corner, but now sometimes leaks from the middle. The diswasher is 12 years old.


Usually this is caused by a bad door seal.
It can easily be removed and replaced.


If this helps you, please select YES to the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

Maytag Jet Clean leaking through right side of door during rinse


It is important to examine the leak to see where it probably originates.

If the water is leaking from the right hand side of the door on your dishwasher, it is time to replace the gasket that seals the door when the door is latched.

Maytag MDB7130AWB dishwasher blows circit breaker.


These have been known to leak water into the door panel. If so the water can cause a short. Your breaker is keeping the machine from lighting up. Check any seals that may have been braeched in the door. Start at the dispencer latch
rubber.

Dishwasher is leaking


Gasket probably became dislodged, replace door gaskets, at 4 years old I would replace the gaskets, they are not expensive.

Maytag Dishwasher 2 years old leaking


open the door of the dishwasher and check the seal. It may have just gotten worked out of place or it could be deteriorated enough that you will need to replace it.
