Well did you check to see if the door seal is ripped or not on tight??? The door seal is the rubber strip that is used to seal the door shut tight, if this is wrecked in any way that might the the answer to your solution?

SOURCE: dishwasher door leak

Hi

Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Also,The latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem.

If the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch.
A Fixya rating would be appreciated if you have found this solution Helpful.

The Diswashers Maytag Quiet Plus II only works when we push against the door


It sounds like the door switch or sensor needs to be adjusted or replaced.

The dishwasher only runs when pressure is applied to front door. As soon as pressure is released, washer stops running


The door switch/latch is out of adjustment or faulty.

Go to RepairClinic.com and enter your full model # to see/order a replacement latch/switch.

hi Replacing the Door Gasket

If water leaks through the dishwasher door, the gasket is probably faulty. Open the door and examine the gasket. It should be soft and resilient. If it's worn, cracked, or hard, it should be replaced. 

Once the gasket is in place, check it for fit against the door frame. It should fit tightly with no cracks or bulges between the gasket and the frame. If necessary, tighten or loosen the retaining screws, or refit the gasket in the clips or the door channel. Then run the machine through a washing sequence and check for leaks. 

If you spot a leak, and the gasket seems to be properly in place, try adjusting the door latch. The trick is to position the gasket against the frame of the door without flattening the gasket or squeezing it too flat when the door is latched properly. Adjust the latch or the gasket until it fits snugly against the door frame.
