We have the leaky dishwasher, a Maytag perhaps from the late 70s, perhaps
more recent as we have only been here for 12 years. It does not happen all
of the time, only maybe one out of 3 or 4 times we use the unit. What we
find is on the floor there is a river of water, not a flood, and the amount
varies. There is no water underneath or behind. It happens not early in
the cycling, but later on, either in the rinsing or the drying phases. We
use the granular Cascade detergent.
I replaced the main gasket around the door to no avail. While doing this I
really cleaned the dirt both under the gasket and where the gasket meets up
with the frame.
The water must be coming from somewhere else, but where? Is there another
gasket somewhere on that door? I seek clues or better from this post.
Questions for clarification are welcome.
