Question about Dishwashers
Maytag dishwasher steams out on wood floor and I have to replace wood floor
The door seals (Gaskets) surrounding the door are not tight. The door adjustment, is dependent on the tilt backward and height adjustment (adjusting levelers) on the corners. If the upper locking tab screwed to the counter tops underside is loose or misaligned, bent, or broken, the door won't close fully and cause the same problems.

I would check to make sure that the top spray arm wasn't over tightened when it was installed. That spray arm threads onto a plastic supply tube which is easy to strip, which will cause it not to tighten properly and leak down the side of the dishwasher and acros the floor.

This is NOT normal and should NEVER happen, there must be some sort of leak or the like from under the unit. Steam coming out, is very unusual, as steam is usually NOT generated by the unit, I suspect, that it is more condensation from under the unit that's more likely that any steam damage, as if it was steaming that would suggest that the water is Boiling or at least being heated to a steaming temperature, and water inside the unit, simply isn't heated up to this temperature, the water may be steaming, but it is not steam. well hopefully.. That's of course unless we had a fault that would overheat the water?
One does indeed require an out for all the fumes etc, however mostly all vapors are contained inside, and if there is any evident on the outside then we must suspect a hole or some way for the water to get out the bottom. Sometimes the Overflow tanks, can over fill, and then you can have water coming out indeed, usually though this is fairly evident, but it may have just been a drip drip drip... as they all soon add up...
If the floor has rotted out, then i would also wonder at the inside condition of the machine, and the bottom panel too.. it may have rusted almost right through? it needs to be checked too..
You need to perform a thorough check of the machine to assist i give you a link so you can download your service and repair manual. below.

It is best to try a few different ones... different detergents work differently with the different dishwasher/water combo's... ya can never tell what the best soap will be till ya try them in your DW with your water...
Also get some TSP and add that it will help the soap work better...

Has steam of this nature been emitted when the unit was first in use ?
It might be that the thermostat is failing/faulty causing the unit to overheat the water. Most dishwashers do not heat the water to a level that would cause excessive steam.
