Question about Maytag MDB8551 Built-in Dishwasher
On our Maytag dishwasher I replaced a valve for the water supply that a local supply store told me was the problem. When it runs, it keeps coming out the seal and after it has stopped. When you open the door, the bottom is full of water. The model #MDBH970AWS and the ser. # 23039888EP. Thank you
Thanks for using FixYa. If the dishwasher is overfilling its water-inlet valve issue, dont know if that is the same valve that you have replaced. This valve is usually at the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. If that valve appears to be fine then it is the float/pressure switch that has gone bad and should be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
