Question and Answers

Q:

Leaking from lower right corner MDB8959AWW2 Maytag Undercounter dishwasher

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
Sorry to hear of the dishwasher bottom-right corner leak, I know how frustrating that is to have occur.
Some dishwashers specifically have bottom corner gaskets that prevent the unit from leaking at the bottom corners, but this dishwasher doesn't use them. The door seal should be the same length on each of the bottom corners, so if the bottom-right corner is an inch shorter than the left, I would suspect you need a new door seal. Those corners are important to be in tact as they will leak if damaged. Does it appear to be torn at all? If so, I would order and replace the door seal, that should solve the issue.
For convenience, I have provided a blue link below that you may click on to be directed to the SearsParts site to view and purchase the replacement door seal if needed.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I'm not completely sure what you mean when you say it shuts off when it reaches the dry cycle. Once the dishwasher reaches the dry cycle, it is not going to make any noises. If the dry light indicator is not coming on, does it still dry the dishes and does the clean light come on? If they do come on, there is nothing likely wrong with the dishwasher.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

The light blinks when it gets to the dry cycle. I actually do not know when it stops, but when I open the dishwasher the dishes are not dry and that light is blinking./

A:

Delorian: Which lights are flashing? If it's the "Clean" light flashing; it would indicate the control did not detect a water temperature rise in the main wash cycle. This could be caused by a faulty heating element, control board or a faulty high limit thermostat. The heating element and high limit thermostat will need to be disconnected and tested for continuity/resistance. If the heater and high limit measure continuity; I suspect a faulty control or loose wire connection.
