Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.

Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Water leak on floor under refrigerator

The line going into the dispenser is a 5/16 line. You'll have to remove the front of the dispenser on the door to get access to the line to unclip it. Once you have that done you can pull the line out from the bottom. At this point there are a variety of different unions, compression fittings, etc. to splice the line. After that you just feed the line back through the bottom of the door, clip it back in place, put the dispenser back together and your done.

check the door gasket. check that it is draining. disconnect drain line from under sink ad put into a bucket. most likely it isn't draining ad is overflowing.

Cant get the machine to balance service guy comes out with my dad at my house who is 70 years old and service guy tells him nothing is wrong . i leveled it out and it shakes the house and says uneven load...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW FRance @ 16:49 Sat afternoon- nothing on TV!

As the service guy says there is nothing wrong with the machine it must be that it is STILL not absolutely balanced.
Really rock it from each corner. If it rocks, even a little, from the right hand front corner then it is the foot underneath that corner which need to be adjusted downwards until it is TIGHT onto the floor then locked by the locking nut so that it cannot vibrate loose. If not this corner then the left hand side need adjusting.
The feet DO need to be very firmly on the floor- honest!

Best of luck,

Maytag mdb6000awb built-in leaking problem

it can be 3 problems. Most likely one is the seal from the acces apnel is leaking.
Or hinge of door is too lose or door seal.
My bet is on the seal for the acces panel.
HERE is drawing. However seal (#12E) is not drawn in.
You can also order the parts here and have them within about 3 days

Water leaks onto the floor during every load. The water appears to be comeing from the front right hand side.

Please check the water tap connected to the washing machine. Sometimes it may be leaking.
