My diswasher started pouring water at the bottom of the door. The amount of detergent has always been the same, I use the premeasured packs so that cannot be the problem. I have not done anything differently that may be causing the problem. The only thing is that the leaking was during the "Heavy" cycle. Please help as I have hardwood floors in the kitchen.
Answer Hi. Open the door all the way and see if the BOTTOM gasket part # 154759101 is deformed and needing replaced. You do not have to remove the whole door for this. The splash guard fits onto the bottom edge of the door liner. It has a lip made on it that "clips" onto the bottom edge. Make sure the spray arms are not clogged or have not spit (literally on the side plastic welded edge). It will spray too much water against the door and create a leak. Thank You.
I have a small leak on the bottom right corner of the door. It seems that I need a new gasket. Is item# AP4421139 the one that goes across the bottom or does it go all the way around? Do you have one that just goes across the bottom?
Answer Hello Mary,
A dishwasher has a seal around three sides of the door. The two sides and across the top. The bottom is an air gap used for air intake during the dry cycle.If you have a leak at the bottom of the door, there is another underlying cause. Either you have a split or partially clogged spray arm, a leak at or around the detergent dispenser, or an oversoap condition. You can normally tell if one of the spray arms are clogged as you can see the food particles in the holes. The detergent dispenser would have to be inspected by disassembling the door panel. The oversoap condition can be checked for by filling the unit and letting it circulate the water for at least 90 seconds. If you at that point, open the door and suds are accumulated on top of the water, you are oversoaped.
