Maytag QuietSeries 300 Dishwasher Leaking

SavingmoneyApril 16, 2013

Hello, we have a Maytag QuietSeries 300. Recently, we noticed that the dishes had fine food particles on them especially the glasses. So, we cleaned out the dishwasher and noticed that the openings in the spray arms were clogged. We removed them from the dishwasher, and we poked the dirt back through the openings and sloshed them around in the bathtub to send the dirt out. Afterwards, we put them back in the dishwasher, we set the dishwasher with an empty load on heavy wash with tough scrub. It then began to leak on the left bottom corner. It starts out with a few drops and then becomes a steady stream. After that happens, we cancel the wash. Whether we use the tough scrub option or not it will still leak.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Check if the arm may be split or coming apart at a seam where it's heat-welded together. A split can cause water to spray out from the edge of the arm toward door bottom of the door, where it shouldn't go.
