    Default Dishwasher leaks at front door

    Maytag DWU7400ABX sometimes, not always leaks from the bottom of the front door. Ive read some other posts and checked the spray arm for cracks, and the rubber seal around the door seem OK [I removed it cleaned it and the surface it sits on the dishwasher front ]. The grommet & latch look ok. We use the dishwasher twice a week and I say every 5th wash, it starts to leak and we see a puddle of water and then its time to get the mop out. I don't understand why it does'nt leak for every wash ?

    Hi,

    Sounds like it could be that rubber grommet on the inside of the dispenser door latch. If you could remove the inner door liner you may see it leak.

    Here is a link that should help:

    Why would it not leak for every wash ? Does water build up over several washs and then come out the bottom of the front door ?

    What part am I looking for ?

    model DWU7400ABX

    I made my own rubber grommet for the inside of the dispenser door latch, until I bought the new one, and now that I bought it, I dont know what side of the grommet faces away from the door ?

    The sleeve side faces away from the door onto that latch piece.
