I have a water leak at the bottom of the door. I am looking to replace the door gasket since it is hard and does not seat in the door properly. Does this model require the small gasket mentioned in the video?
Answer Hello Bill,
This unit does show that the gasket insert WD08X10015 is used. You should check the spray arms for clogs or separations. If anything can cause a "wave" in the water, it will slosh out since the bottom of the door is not completely sealed. It is used as an air inlet for the dry cycle so it cannot be perfectly sealed.
I have a small leak from the bottom of my GE nautilus portable dishwasher, I ordered the missing piece small gasket, but not sure that is the problem, the door gasket looks fine and is in good condition. Any suggestions? could it be the water pump or something else that is causing the leak?
Answer Hello Jason,
The seal you ordered could be the cause or there could be another leak. The best way to locate it is with a flashlight and a small inspection mirror. Run the unit and look for the leak. If you think you know where the leak is originating but are not sure, turn the power off and use a dry paper towel to see if water is coming from where you suspect.
I was deep cleaning my dishwasher, including the grime around the gasket. Well, long story short, I ended up just pulling out the gasket bc it seemed necessary to clean. After returning the gasket to where it goes, it seems that I have a small leak coming from the bottom of the door. I am wondering what the part is that you tuck the 2 ends of the gasket under is. I think that might me where my problem is. I can't afford a new gasket but I don't want all my cleaning efforts to go to waste by letting it sit there to collect mold again. What should I do?
Answer Hello Kristin,
Most of the time a leak at the door is not because of the door seal. You see, the bottom of the door has no seal. This is used as an air intake for the dry cycle. A leak is normally caused by an slight overfill from a failing water valve or a spray arm with debris inside it stopping up one or more holes in it. This puts a "wave" in the water making it slosh. To check the door seal make sure the door liner on the outside edge of the seal is dry and run the unit for a few minutes. Carefully open the door and, shining a flashlight down each side, look for water droplets on the side of the seal that should be dry. If the liner is wet on the outside side of the seal, the unit could be a bit out of level, causing the seal not to seat properly.
