Maytag dishwasher jet Clean EQ Plus Leaks out the bottom of the front door on the right side!!!


First, examine the gasket around the door or dishwasher front for tears or holes. If the gasket looks good, the door may have been flexed during installation or while loading / unloading. Open the door half way and try to flex counter clockwise. This should straighten out the door and allow the seal to contact properly.

I have a Maytag MDB9100AWB. During wash and rinse it leaks on the right side (as I am facing it). Cannot figure out where it is coming from. The seal on the tub seems(?) okay. Did not find a seal...


The symptoms you describe, STILL sounds like it could be caused by a worn door seal. Over time, these seals compress to the point where they no longer seal correctly, or food particles and grime get caught between the door and seal and leave small air gaps. I personally own a Maytag such as yours and experienced the same problem. It turned out to be a tub seal that was too compressed to seal properly.

The following link explains some of the common causes of dishwasher leaks and what you can do to prevent them:

If the model number is correct, the part number for a replacement gasket is 902894.

Replacement part (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites are reputable and have great service. Prices vary between them, so shop and compare. The first three sites I have listed include helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you in locating and properly identifying any parts you may need.

This is a very simple repair. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please post back and let me know. hope this helps you.

NOTE: There is NO seal along the bottom on this model dishwasher. That is why proper loading is also important. Water can be diverted over the front edge of the tub basin and cause drips and leaks if loaded improperly.

Eurotech Dishwasher is leaking - How to get to the guts to fix it


When a dishwasher leaks, it is usually the door seal or the water level gone wrong. Assuming the door was never leaned-on and the hinges bent, then you look to the seal or in some cases a splashshield fin that goes along the bottom between door and frame. If the unit is more than 7 or 8 years, the seal or shield plate could have lost its shape enough to allow water to get by.
The other problem, is the water level is too hi and this can be because the float switch is filled with soap scum and is heavier than normal, so the float thinks there needs to be more water than usual. Clean the float, you may need to remove a guard shroud to access the float. Goodluck, macgivor

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.

Maytag jet clean


If the arm has a crack or is broke pressure will not turn it properly. Also check the rubber boot that seal the wash arm on the rear supply tube. If the rear supply tube holes are not sealing from inside with the rubber flap seal that will effect it also.

Leaking dishwasher


what sort of soap powder do you use
some soap powders foam a lot in machine causing dishwasher to leak through seals
also check that the machine is square that is the door is closing parallel with cabinet
do not use power balls in machine just standard dishwasher detergent and separate rinse aid

Frigidaire Dishwasher Leaking


I just found a service release number for my Frigidaire dishwasher that says it applies to Serial numbers TH632 through serial number TH737 made in 2007 for a replacement kit for the door seal at the bottom of the door. The bottom door seal has been changed, adding side seals that restrict the water surge from the center spray arm. The part number for the new seal is p/n 154588201. This seal can be replaced without removing the dishwasher or either of the door panels.
The seal is located on the bottom of the inner door panel and appears as a cream colored flexible
rubber blade bonded to a milky white colored plastic strip. To remove and properly install
replacement follow the instructions carefully.
1. Replacing this seal can be accomplished without disconnecting power from the unit.
Always use extra care when electrical power is present while serving an appliance.
2. Open door all the way down and remove lower rack. Set rack aside to a safe location.
3. Locate the seal on the bottom of inner door panel. Facing front of unit, the right side of the
seal can be pulled down slightly to facilitate removal.
4. Pull seal straight into the tub from right side.
5. With seal removed, and before installing replacement seal, locate the channel in inner door
panel that the seal mounts into. Locating this channel before installing the replacement can
make this procedure easier.

6. Place the new seal on a flat surface and measure from the bottom of the seal, (See Figure
1 to determine bottom of seal), up 3/8 "of an inch and place a mark with a pen or marker on
both ends (See Figure 2). If needed, scribe a straight line between these two marks this
will give you a guide when installing seal into the inner door panel.
7. The seal can only be installed one way. The end that holds this seal into the inner door
panel has a ½ inch notch cut in the right side. This notch allows the seal to be installed
around the end of the inner door channel that holds the seal.
8. Line up the seal along the bottom of the inner door panel and start from the right side, push
the seal into the door channel to the line marked in step #6.
9. With seal in place close the door, the tub will align the seal as needed.
10. Reinstall lower rack and operate unit to check for leaks.
If leaks continue to occur at the bottom corners, order Splash shield kit 154701001 for
dishwasher.

Before installing the kit remove and reinstall the lower door seal. To install the lower seal make
sure you measure up from the bottom of the seal 3/8 of an inch and mark the seal, do this on
both ends. This locates how far down the seal needs to be before closing the door. Do not
install this seal without measuring it first. After the lower door seal has been re-installed then
install the splash shields according to the instructions accompanying with the kit.
