The day before we noticed the recall notice, our dishwashed stopped
working. A few tests on the cycles showed that water entered the
machine but wasn't being pumped/thrown around. A little work later -
after uninstalling the trim I noticed a lot of water under the
I became evident that water was leaking out of the motor casing -
directly over the motor coil.
Is this behaviour consistent with the recall? Can someone describe
the behaviour beyond the brief explanation Maytag gives?
Their explanation says the rinse-aid can cause fire & property
damage. Is the property damage related to the water leaking - or the
fire - or both?
I phoned their frustrating-helpline & never got an answer - then found
their web-site http://repair.maytag.com - which says my model JDB11
isn't involved in the recall.
But it seems too coincidental. Also, when I was soaking up the water
under the dishwasher I noticed a clump of what looked like solder
would have come off one of the manufactured joints (as the joints used
in installation were all compression joints).
