The drain line is clean. Have you checked to make sure the the rest of the drain is clear all the way down to the main drain?. Also check the pump to make sure that it is working properly, it might be pumping water in, but it may not be wanting to pump the water out

    No, you can do it yourself, there are 2 bolts holding down the pump one on each side, pull it out then put the new one in place, pretty straight forward. Just make sure that the power is disconnected

Dishwasher not emptying, and leaking water every where

A very frustrating issue to be sure and these questions are not meant to be flippant but I do want to find out if there is actually more than one problem. Does your machine have water leaking even when it is not turned on? You mention that the dishwasher is not emptying - do you simply mean is it not emptying properly?

If water is coming out when the machine is not on, it means you have a leak at the water supply connection that only stops when you turn the water valve off. If the machine fills and immediately starts leaking water during the wash cycle, it means there is a gravity leak usually near the pump. If the water only leaks when the machine should be draining it, it means you have a leak somewhere in the drain line - a not uncommon problem. I've seen several instances where mice have chewed a small hole in the plastic drain line to get the water.

Can you give more specifics about when the water is coming out? Also, your make and model number would be helpful.

Hi, I have a Maytag Mdb8959sas dishwasher that was leaking during a normal wash cycle. I pulled the dishwasher out from under the counter and saw that it appears to be leaking directly below the point...

I will assume that you have cleaned gasket around door and at washer. Quite often a build up of scale at lower gasket surfaces is all that is causing leak.

Leak from maytag top load coin machine during spin drain cycle only

Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim
