My Repair & Advice
When I identified a leak coming from the Heating Coil, I saw that the Heating Element Nut on both sides were corroded and could not hold the heating element tight any more. I ordered replacement parts and the fix was very easy. As I was running the test afterwards, I discovered that there was a leak coming from under the door. I realized then that the reason the heating element nut corroded was because of a leak in the door. I ordered a new door gasket and door seal (that goes at the bottom of the door) to fix the problem. There is still some splash that happens during the heavy cycle and the Splash Guard that is sold separately is not compatible with my model. I took the old door seal and mounted it as a shield under the door. This stopped the splash and does not interfere with the door.
