I am replacing the heater element, part # 5301DD1001A, after replacing the part it leaked, checked for debris, nothing. I reseated it and it still leaks. Any advice, silicone maybe. Is high temperature an issue? Thanks for the help.
ANSWER Hello AP. It sounds like the center drive nut is not tight enought to cause a good seal on the sump assemnly of the unit. Try to tighten the nut and compress the rubber seal to stop the leak in the unit.
