    dishwasher cleans dishes just fine. BUT, it leaks water onto the floor in front of the dishwasher. And now it leaks steam by the door handle and has totally ruined the countertop.

    MDB7100AWW dishwasher model number. Gasket was replaced by serviceman doing the wiring module service replacement program. It never leaked before this. Then leaked regularly after the repairman visited. Our model number is inside the dishwasher top left, and has the green sticker on it. Does that help?

I need a "better" model #! It is located under your front bottom panel and contains 6 digits. Gaskets, per se, are not difficult to replace nor expensive (do it yourself). If you give me that info I can give you all the info you need for replacement. Most DW's don't have a gasket! If it is a leak problem, it is more likely the "float level" (contolling how muchthe tank fills) or a clog in the drain, the machine is, perhaps, just over filling? Gaskets is/are my business.

Dish washer leaks suds from the bottom of the door. When it was run with no soap it did not leak. I am using the same soap pods I have used since it's purchase, 1 1/2 yrs ago.


do not call that repairman again. check to see if gasket/seal is cracked and if the door can be adjusted to close tighter

Well Kathy, you may be in luck. There has been a safety recall on your model of dishwasher and Maytag will give you a considerable allowance to replace with another Maytag. You may contact them at 1-800-544-5513 with your model and serial number and they will give you instructions on how to obtain your new dishwasher at a deeply discounted rate and all the details.

Maytag mdb 7100/7160 stopped working (control panel no responsive). i am planning to replace the electornic control panel. is that an easy "remove and replace" operation?


FYI: In case you didn't know there was a recall about 2 or 3 years back on the panel itself. If you didn't get yours replaced then I would try and see if you still have rights under the recall. If so, they will replace it for free.

I watched the repairman replace ours and it seemed quite simple as long as you connect the wires correctly. If I remember right he messed up the first time and had to go back in.

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.

6 to 7 years is about right without put out major repair costs. Unfortunately salesmanship is the biggest racket going. I'd scrap it or sell it for parts. Sorry

Maytag portable dishwasher, dish racks are very rusted in 2 years


This is Maytags solution


Do the dishwasher racks have chips or scratches showing exposed metal underneath?
If minor rack repairs are needed, a dishwasher rack repair kit just might work. To review this product or purchase the kit, click here.
Should you purchase the kit online, enter Promo Code F9A75Q4 in the Review Order screen when you check out to receive a 10% discount on your order.
For more severe rack damage, a replacement rack may need to be purchased; call the Maytag Customer eXperience Center toll-free at 1-866-616-2601, Monday-Friday, 8AM-6PM, Eastern Time.

I would call the toll free number and see if a free replacement is available. If not at least try to get a big discount on replacing them.

Good luck and thanks for using Fix Ya, please take the time to rate this solution (from Fix Ya, not Maytag, I didn't like their solution).

Water leaking from front


I had the same problem. Repairman replaced flat gasket on the sump cover. Also replaced lower arm and that helped too.

Leaking from the door


This has happened to us a few times. There is a gasket inside the door for a solenoid that operates the flap that opens to let dishwasher detergent out. The gasket went bad and water leaked through.

The only thing to do is replace the gasket. It's a $8 part. (A lot for a 1 inch square gasket!) They seem to last about 2-3 years.

Rusty dish rack


Clearly a design or manufacturing flaw. I have the same model and the rack is disintegrating after 6 years. I believe it is a manufacturing flaw. Our previous dishwasher rack lasted over 20 years in the same conditions. Same construction, vinyl covered steel. New upper and lower racks cost over 200.00 and there is no guarantee that this won't happen every six years. I recommend a new non-Maytag dishwasher as soon as you can. Meanwhile, limp along with the defective racks.
