Question about Maytag Dishwashers
You definitely have to have a clean......float clean from all debris...it is very typical for the float to cause leaking problems ..as it is an overflow switch....also drying agents...that are used...especially if any is spilled inside will foam up and cause an overflow as well as liquid detergents that are not specified by the maker of your DW....these foam also....(if to much is used)...but the float will not push down on the switch if it is completely free from gunk.
I hope this helps.....good luck...thanks for rating my effort....the Fang.

most common causes of this problem are a defective water inlet valve or
a stuck float switch. The float switch sits under the dish racks and
sends a shut-off signal to the dishwasher when the water level is high
enough. Make sure you only use a Maytag-compatible replacement if you
have to change out your dishwasher's float switch or water inlet valve.

Check the float to make sure it moves freely up and down, and it should click when it moves. Remove float and clean around the float tube-you may need to do this from below, through the access panel. Use white vinegar to scrub the float and shaft assembly. Turn on the dishwasher to see if this fixed the problem.
If not, it may be the float switch. If you are handy with electrical repairs, turn off the power to the dishwasher, pull the dishwasher from the wall and remove the back. Remove the wires from the terminals on the float switch-use masking tape to identify to identify terminals,noteing which belongs where.Remove old switch and replace with the new float switch. You will need the serial number, model number and make of your dishwasher to order the new float.
