In response to Re: Dishwasher leak!
: My seven-year-young ever-so-nice dishwasher has sprung a leak.
: The leak seems to come out of the bottom of the door. I dissected
: it, to the best of my limited ability, and found that the funny little
: squishy gasket (seems to be some sort of soft plastic shield on top of
: a sponge sort of gasket), along the very bottom of the door,
: is absolutely soaked with water. The water
: leaks from the length of this soaking thing. I think it looks as though
: this thing shouldn't really be getting wet at all--it is below the level of
: the tub and the internal door opening.
: The machine has a twenty year warratny on the tub and door liners.
: Could this be a problem with the door liner? It seems to be intact.
: This is our first-ever dishwasher, so I'm not familiar with failure modes.
: I also don't know if it's crazy to consider repairing a seven-year-old
: machine? It is a Maytag "Jetclean"
: Any ideas most thankfully received.
