The gasket will have to be replaced. I've had customers with this problem and the only way to correct it is to replace the gasket

HI. this is a inlet assembly issue. The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it. One hose will lead from the valve to the pump/motor assembly in the center of the dishwasher. Check that the hoses are securely connected to the valve and that there are no kinks in the hoses which could restrict water flow. There are two wires (four, if it has two solenoids) connected to the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire itself). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.

Use a continuity tester or multimeter to test for continuity. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. A reading of infinity indicates a bad solenoid that must be replaced. Different brands and models will have various measurements, but the valve should show some resistance if it is functioning properly. If your valve has two solenoids, test the second one in the same way as the first.

If the solenoid is working properly, but water leaks through the valve even when the dishwasher is off, then the valve itself is the problem. Debris may be preventing the valve from closing. If the valve cannot be cleaned, it will have to be replaced. The valve can also fail mechanically. So even if it passes the electrical test, it may still require replacement. If you have ruled out all other possibilities, go ahead and replace the valve.

***(((NOTE-- It i possible that the valve housing has cracked as well. make sure that the hoses are connected properly during your testing. If there are no hose issues, this will be a defective valve assembly)))

That would have to be purchased from the manufacturer or one of the appliance parts suppliers. Most should be able to get one for you or contact the store where you purchased the unit.
Good luck,

No, don't run Coca-Cola in it! I would call a repairman immediately - you may have a rubber hose that is disintegrating, and you dishwasher could start leaking seriously!

Gasket in bottom of Maytag dishwater is disintegrating.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. I think what your seeing is that the gasket is swelling up.. It may very well be disentigrating of there is corrosoin of the tub metal. Most of the time I see the gasket swell up and bulge. However... when the parent metal of the tub is corroded it will sestroy the gasket. If the tub is corroding there is not much you can do other than try and arrest the corrosion process. When the metal is swelling up in lumps the corrosion process is called exfoliation. If there is exfoliation corrosion it rapidly disintgrates the parent metal and the tub will eventually start leaking into the pump and motor.
Should I be tasked with this type of repair I look underneath the unit for metal damage or leaks. If the metal is too far gone it would take some very creative and time consuming repairs. My experience is that if the metal it too far gone I tell the customer to keep using it until it fails or leaks but be ready to replace it.
If the parent metal is fine and the gasket is just bulging.... I would not get too concerned. If the parent metal is fine and the gasket really has disintegrated it can be replaced. Something caused the gasket to fail... food particulate / oils, corrosion or cleaning habits. Since you did not provide a model number I can only recomment a couple of sites that you will have to enter your model number in a search panel.
Parts sources:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com

http://www.appliancepartspros.com

http://www.repairclinic.com

Once you do a MODEL search on any of the above sites your parts diagrams will appear.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I need a wiring diagram to troubleshoot a non-working Dishwasher (Maytag DWU9200) The cycle doesn't advance, and none of the loads function when the timer is advanced manually


I had the problem years ago on a Maytag DWU9200. The problem was that a tiny wire was broken on the motor that is running the timer and the timer was not working. I had to replace the complete timer assembly. I got an electrical schematic with the new timer.
This has now worked for 5 years...
Today the float for the float switch was stocked, preventing the water to fill the dishwasher during the cycle. I moved the float up and down several times and it works now.

Brand new dishwasher installed and water leaks out bottom of door


If your dishwasher leaks, check these:

Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses
Main tub seal Note…If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath thecenter bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probablyapply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn'tserviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

Themain tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water inthe dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get tothe seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

  • Lower rack


  • Spray arm


  • Spray arm support


  • Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal Overtime, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to sealproperly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them ifthey've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve Thewater-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply linefrom the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the insideof the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these asnecessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open.When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher,which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to thedishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses Behindthe lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastichoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If thatdoesn't work, replace the hose.

Leaking dishwasher


hi there,
dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, check these:

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom
of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you.
But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the
entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from
leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher,
remove the:

* Lower rack
*Spray arm
* Spray arm support
* Wash/drain impellers

Then try the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly.
You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the
rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten
or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues
to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the
dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the
leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

Black soot on plastic in dishwasher


You can get a product called dishwasher majic. It is used to clean the tub of a dishwasher. Big box stores (LOWES, HOME DEPOT) should have it. There is not charcoal in the unit. I suspect is grease from the rubber seal around sump assembly.
