Question about Dishwashers
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
