Q:Trying to open it and check something inside for a friend. Came with their house. Oddly it will not open. Doesn't appear to be a release up inside the carve out, obviously for a hand to fit. No spring loaded feel to anything that would appear to release this door. Thought I would ask instead of forcing it. In 2 years of their home ownership they have not used it so they don't know either. With water source on it appears to have a leak even not in use so I turned off the water source. But no luck on opening the door. Thank you

    Q:Have found dishwasher leaking at front door...it is at most 2 years old... could the inside door seal be bad already?
    by|Jan 20, 2019
    4 Answers
    Answer This Question

    A:  Yes, or something may have gotten caught/damaged the seal. Inspect the seal carefully to locate the problem

    by|Jan 22, 2019

      A:  make sure it is cleaned good and that the filter is cleaned as well. I have seen it where the seal gets crooked and a clogged filter will tend to deposit crud under the seal on bottom sides.

      by|Jan 22, 2019

        A:  Hello Donby! We are terribly sorry to hear of your concern. We would recommend contacting Maytag® at 800-344-1274. We are available weekdays, between 8 am to 8 pm EST. They will be better able to assist you.

        by|Jan 23, 2019

          A:  Shouldn't be - I would check that the seal is properly seated. also check for any residue / dirt build-up on seal.

          Answer This Question

          A:  Hello MD! Yes, the sticker can be removed. We recommend using mild soapy water.

          by|Jan 3, 2019

            A:  Of course, the sticker can be removed

            by|Jan 3, 2019

            A:  I've chosen not to remove it because I don't think it's worth the effort, thougb it is possible. You just have to work it off extremely carefully so as not to damage the finish on the front of the machine.

            by|Jan 3, 2019

            A:  Mine does not have that sticker. The 10 year warranty sticker does peel off.

                  Three months after we bought this dishwasher the water pump went out. It was under warranty and the service guy was GREAT. He replaced the pump, but we had issues of still not cleaning dishes. Maytag says their dishwashers will take off dried on egg yoke and peanut butter. Our's would not take butter off a knife. Glasses came out with a white film on them. Dishes still came out wet after drying. We called Maytag again. Once again the service guy came out. He said sorry "This is as good as it gets". Even tho we have three sprayers in the dishwasher the motors are not as strong as the old units. Which does not spray the water very hard on the dishes. The dryers do not heat like the old units and they do not have fans to blow hot air around the dishes. The reason dishes come out wet. He said we need to upgrade our detergent to Finish Quantum and also use Lemi Shine. booster. These are both HIGH price products. This improved the results of unit but still does not clean as good as our old 2009 Kenmore did. Some dishes still need to be hand washed. We paid over $500 for a unit and got the same results as a $300 unit. Don't believe Maytag/Whirl Pool hype.

                    We moved into a brand new home furnished with appliances. The dishwasher was crap; it smelled, it didn't dry the dishes and they still looked dirty after it ran. So we looked around and found this Maytag one. I am very pleased with our choice. It is pretty quite and I can run it and still hear the TV (we have an open concept floor plan - 2 story house). My dishes look clean and are dry after the cycle. I like the control panel and the fact it says "Clean" when it is done running. It also shows how long a cycle is going to run. We had Home Depot install it so I'm not sure how easy it is to do that. But they weren't here very long and we haven't had any issues.

                      Pros: all stainless, pretty quiet, good service if needed Cons: flimsy door construction (must be perfectly level for door to close properly), top rack is short and does not adjust (can’t fit tall glasses or water bottles) Only had it a couple of weeks, but disappointed so far in its average cleaning ability and flimsy assembly. The top rack needs to be another inch or so lower to fit our needs. Hopefully it will last a few years.

                      Great dishwasher that cleans really well. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is the front of it is a little flemsey. I could see if I had small children the front would be dented.

                      I just love my new dishwasher. It was easy to install and it looked great. I have done many loads of the dirtiest dishes and they came out spotless and very clean. I really made a good choice in buying this dishwasher. I took the big basket out for the silverware and swapped it out with one half the size only because I just didn't need a basket that large except during the holidays. I have bought four dishwashers before this one and I have to say this is the best one I ever had. You just can't go wrong buying this one.
