Maytag dishwasher driping
on the bottom side of that float should be a keeper nut. That is not going to affect the amount of water coming in, that missing nut just keeps the float from coming out of there. That is not going to be the source of your leak. I have found that a lot of dishwashers will drip if the door is not closing tight, There should be an adjustment on the door latch that will allow you to tighten the door against the seal. loosen the bolt and move the latch in just a hair.
