Some older Maytag dishwashers have a drive belt that can break, slip, or make a terrible noise when it is ready to let go. This belt can stretch as well and then it may "fly" off, especially in the drain mode. The motor and pump pulleys are off-set so that not only does the belt go around and around it turns using the whole surface of the belt, that is why they use a belt dressing on the belt. The dressing lubricates the belt so it can roll between the pulleys. You will need to remove the access panels to get at the belt area.
A belt replacement tip from Fyxxer....
One easy way I have found to replace the belt on an older Maytag D/W. Put the new belt over the pump pulley and above it, around the pump housing. Then put the belt around the motor pulley, now you have the belt around the pump, carefully roll it down around the pump pulley. I've found this makes it much easier, taught to me by an old Maytag man who watched me fight it for 10 minutes years ago before saying "Son, here's the easy way"
Maytag dishwasher leak - On the plastic liner Maytag dishwashers a common problem area has been the small gasket on the soap door latch. This gasket wears out and leaks water between the inner and outer panels and onto the floor. A grommet and latch kit can be purchased to correct this type of leak.
