My dishwasher is leaking on the bottom. We replaced the gasket and gasket insert, however it is still leaking. The gasket insert is a little bigger on both sides so we aren't sure how it is supposed to fit. Should the excess go under the gasket or does it just sit out on top of the gasket? Please help!

Jenny for Model Number GDS5124DO2BB

ANSWER Hello Jenny, The issue may not be the gasket at all. You see, the door gasket goes around three sides of the door. The bottom has no gasket because it is an air gap used as an air intake for the dry cycle. In the case that the leak is from sloshing over the air gap, the issue could be either debris in the spray arm causing a "wave" in the water with each rotation of the spray arm, or an over soap situation where the suds are building higher than the air gap. Either way, water will drip from the corner of the door. The excess length of the door gasket just goes straight down, evened out from side to side. It kind of folds toward the front of the unit, but goes under nothing.
