First I replaced the soap door grommet -- door still leaked. Then I went for the really expensive part ($40) -- the door gasket. The old one came right out and the new one went right in -- 15 minutes tops -- and the door no longer leaked.Thanks to all the previous posters for their hints.

I pulled out the old gasket and put in the new one. You need to stretch it a bit as you guide it in the track.It was very easy but did not solve the problem.Apparently, Maytag dishwashers are known for a leaky soap dish which I figured out after the door gasket was replaced. The problem is usually with the soap dish latch. You need to take the inner door off, disassemble the soap diehs, out a new gasket and latch on, reassemble, and you should be all set.
I removed the gasket from the packaging & soaked it in hot water for approx 5 minutes to enhance the pliability of the rubber. I them opened the dishwasher door and removed the existing gasket, making sure I observed any specifics of the gasket, (ie...shape of gasket). I then cleaned any debris from the gasket channel. I took the new gasket from the water and folded it in half to determine where the middle was, and I started inserting the gasket beginning at the middle area of the channel, (just under the door latching mechanism). I finished inserting both sides and then closed the door for approximately 30 minutes to complete the gasket seating process. No leaks!!!
Used your web site was able to identify correct part very quickly. Received the replacement part in 2 days. Removed broken part with screw gun only took 20 minutes. Was very please with ease of site and quick delivery. Thank you
The problem would rarely happen if the dishwasher was fully loaded vs. lightly loaded; which would produce a lot of water rapidly during the spray cycles. (or empty during the house inspection!). Removing and replacing the door gasket is super-easy.
I first replaced the seal/grommet around the soap dispenser latch, which was leaking, but did not totally stop the leak. I ended up ordering the door gasket too. Both were very easy to replace. My wife wanted a new dishwasher, but let me take a crack at fixing the leak first. Woo Hoo - big $$$ saved.
I tried tightening the latch (this had worked once before), but it was already tightened as far as it would go, and door still leaked. So I suspected the gasket, because the old one looked like it had lost its elasticity and was caked with crud. I tried cleaning it in place, but it still leaked. So I ordered a new gasket. However, it was back-ordered, so I tried removing the old gasket and cleaning it. It came out very easliy ( I had expected it to fall apart). Then I cleaned it good under running water, kneading the crud out of it. I also cleaned ou the groove, then I replaced it and that fixed the leak. So I didn't need the new gasket.
just pulled out old gasketpushed in new one
After reading repair stories on this website, I decided to order the grommet as well as the seal for my dishwasher door. The seal was easy, just pull the old one out and push the new one in. Make sure the ends were even and that was done. Next came the grommet. 7 screws and I had the plastic off of the door. Then you just flip the plastic panel over and be careful of the wires.(I didn't remove them) Remove two more screws and the latch came out. Just tug the old grommet off and push the new one into place. Line it back up and replace the bolts. Flip the plastic back over and put the other 7 screws back in and you are ready to clean again. While I was in there I took a little extra time to clean some of the buildup out of the sealing surfaces. No more leaks!
Thought it was the door gasket. Replaced the gasket, still leaked. Thought it might be the soap dispensor O-ring and/or the tablet dispensor door latch grommet. It turns out that the grommet was bad and the leak was coming from it. Just had to take the door apart, remove two nut screws and take the latch assembly out to replace the grommet. Very simple and only took 10 - 15 minutes to do the job.
pulled out old door gasket and on the third try it fit perfectly.took out 8 screws on the door, seperated the plaster inner door from the outer. undid 2 screws to replace the dispenser door latch gasket.dropped the new silverware basket into the dishwasher and put the 8 screws back in.it closes a bit tigher now, but it does not drip...Thank you...
In front of the dishwasher, my wife and I noticed pooling water when the cycle was running. I was fearing the worst, that the tub was leaking from underneath, or that the supply system was leaking and I was going to have to take the whole sucker out. Not so.I saw that the door gasket was very hard and corroded from our local hard water. I got to this site and saw that others replaced the dispenser door latch grommet, too, and four bucks was a reasonable add-on to make sure the whole thing was dry later.The door gasket itself was about a five minute repair. No real tools required, except that a blunt pushing tool is helpful. The only trick was making sure that both sides were relatively equal on the bottom.The dispenser door latch thingy was a bit more complicated. The driver set I was using fortunately had a Torx bit that fit the plastic door panel screws. I then tried dissembling the door solenoid/release mechanism, but I should have just undone the nuts and taken the whole thing off without taking the small pieces apart. Anyway, I replaced the grommet easily and then got all the small stuff put back together OK.This was an easy repair without pictures or instructions.
Assumed that the door gasket needed replacing so I went to Partselect.com. Ordereed the gasket and was about to check out when I noticed the comments from others. Decided to look and was glad I did! Almost everyone said that the gasket on the soap dipenser latch on their door gasket repair was bad also so I ordered the latch gasket too. Parts arrived in only two days. I was amazed. I started by turning the power off at the panel box, then removing the door gasket and cleaning the gasket groove. Then it was a simple matter of pushing the gasket into place, avoiding stretching or compressing it. Removing the gasket and putting in the new one was only about 3 minutes work - however cleaning the groove took somewhat longer. Then unscrewed the 7 torex screws on the interior door plastic panel. Carefully work the panel free, study the solenoid to see how it pops out and it attached, remove the solenoid and the panel is free of the door. Examine the interior workings of the soap dispenser to see how it all fits. The remove the two hex head screws with a nut driver and carefully remove the assembly. Notice how the latch gasket fits with its boot in the notch on the latch base. The old boot was completely torn from the gasket base on mine. I cleaned accumulation of soad and crud from the mechanism and from the interior side of the door panel. Put it all back together in reverse order. The cleaning took longer thna the actual repairs. Thank goodness for the comments - saved me a ton of aggravation!!! Partselect.com rules!
The repair went great. Very simple process to remove the old gasket and just press the new one in by hand. Total time to repair was 3 minutes. This was a very easy process, only needed to use a screw driver and my fingers to do it. The water leak was over. Anyone can do this repair. Don't think about getting a new dishwasher, or a plumber, as this is a verysimple repair that will easily do the fix!
From other comments on this site, I learned that 2 people fixed the problem with a new door gasket; 3 fixed the problem by replacing the dispenser latch. I tried the gasket and it helped some (obviously needed replacement anyway) but then learned that the rubber boot around the soap dispenser latch was torn into two pieces. Replaced it and good-to-go.
