WE installed a new door gasket. However the machine still had a leak only on the left side. Called a tech and he came and said the gasket was installed backwards. Apparently the original one was also because we installed the new gasket exactly the way the old one was. We are all set now.

I grabbed a hold of the old gasket and removed it. I then took the new gasket and set it in place on one corner. I inserted it around the groove and with just one adjustment for length, I took the round bottom of a spoon to set and smooth the gasket into place. No more leaks. 5 minute fix.

It was very easy. Simply remove old seal with a pair of needle nose pliers. Clean or scrap any build-up from old seal location and then push-in the new door seal. Close door and let the new seal form to the door.

Pulled the old gasket. Cleaned gasket channel very well. Centered middle of new gasket with the door latch. Then worked gasket in both directions to both ends. Closed the door and left with door tight for several hours to allow it to seat with the new gasket. When use was resumed the leak, at least to this point, has stopped.

This was as simple a repair as you will ever get, at least on a 16 year old Maytag like we have. Literally just take the old gasket out and put the new one in -- just make sure to look at the old gasket to ensure you are inserting the proper end of the new one into the channel, I almost put it in wrong, but then again I'm brain damaged where home repairs are concerned. The door is more difficult to close after I put the gasket in, so I may have to adjust the door closing mechanism just a tad.

Installing the door gasket is relatively easy, it just pushes in place without any adhesive. Just make sure it is even on both sides
You can to pull it out and reinstall to even it all way around the door if needed.
You may also find a new gasket will make to door a little harder to close. I presume it will be easier to close over time.
I also installed a new float at the same time but that repair is very difficult, takes specialized tools and lots of patience.

It took less then 10 minutes to rplace the new gasket. I think that Maytag is way ahead of the competion on this. The Dishwasher is now back to working and no more leaks.
