Maytag Jetclean Not Draining
My Maytag Jetclean dishwasher (I don't know the model#, but it is a late 90s-early 00s model at best guess) has suddenly taken to pooling water at the bottom. The first time, it overflowed onto the kitchen floor. Now it just fills enough to cover the heating element. There is an interior opening that is dripping slowly, but regularly...what IS this? -- see photo --
I took the lower spray arm, filter/screen ring, and cover plate off -- it all looked clean enough. I took the lower-front plate off and looked around...I nodded to myself and replaced the cover...nothing smacked me in the face as looking wrong.
- Running a rise cycle drains the washer
- Running a regular load drains the washer
- If it can drain while operating, doesn't that indicate that it is able to drain correctly?
I've read some of the other posts on clogged washers... can running vinegar through with a few rise or wash cycles take care of a clog or should further pump/pipe/parts dissection occur?
