Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB4000 Built-in Dishwasher
Water is leaking at seal area of vent between door liner and galvanized inner panel. After dishwasher starts wash cycle water comes out through bottom of door and onto floor. No water is coming out through vent to outside of door. No water is leaking around soap dispenser. Any help would be appreciated.
On this model the vent is open and shut by a wax motor. The vent should be closed tight during the entire wash cycle and the first 6 minutes of the drying cycle. Check the operation, make sure there is not a bunch of gunk restricting it. If you are handy with a meter check the resistance of the motor. It should read approx. 2100ohms. Another reason for leaking at the base is oversudzing. Also check the upper spray arm for cracks or splits shooting water into the vent area. Catriver...post back.
