I have the Whirpool kuds24sebl1. My issue is there is steam going under my counter top even when on wash. I am not able to locate the leak. There is no water that leaks from the dishwasher. If I open a drawer during the wash cycle I can feel the humidly / steam. Any help would be appreciated!
Answer Derek, There are several checks to make, and the issue could be "normal" Check the water temperature on the first fill of the cycle, after you've run the hot water faucet for a minute or so. The water temp. should be a minimum of 120 dgrs and a Maximum of 130 dgrs.F. You'll need to slide the dishwasher out and check the air/water inlet on the side of the tub. and check the articulated vent operation.If all checks OK, then some moisture in the cabinet is normal.
Hi, my Kitchenaid dishwasher leaks a little bit. The door seal gasket may need replacement. Is this correct? What is the part?
Answer Hello Sean, you need to figure out where the leak is coming from. Replace the door seal W10112096 if the leak is around the door. If it's underneath the machine you may have a leak at one of the hoses or the sump assembly 8572618. Hope this helps!
On the bottom corner the gasket has rotted. The seal otherwise is in good condition. On the other corner the gasket is a continuous extension of the seal that goes all the way around. The bottom corner piece is not attached to the machine, but is loose. I think it has always been that way. There is no gasket that goes across the bottom except at the corners. What is the part number I need to make the repair? I assume it is a job for a pro but I would like to have the part here and ready to install when I call for service.
Answer Dr. The parts you should need are : W10112096 and the lower door seal 4172127. You would also want to check and make sure the door hinges, and hinge pins on the frame of the dishwasher are not damaged or distorted. Here are some basic instructions, should you decide to attempt the repair yourself. : First, remove power to the dishwasher. 1. Remove the access and toe panels from underneath the dishwasher door by removing the two (4) screws securing it to the dishwasher frame. Remove the eight (8) screws securing the outer door panel to the dishwasher door frame. Remove the outer door panel from the door frame. Thanks and Good Luck
Water leaking out bottom of door. Replaced gasket (W10112096) and lower door seal (4172127). Still leaks. Lower spray arm assembly turns freely - top and bottom bearing rings look good - all holes in arms are open and clean - no splits in the arms. Upper washer arms also turn freely and are in good shape.Water fill float moves freely. How deep should the water in the tub be? (does not cover heater element) Any suggestions on locating the cause of the leaking door?
Answer Jim, Did you also check the door hinges and mounting pins on the frame, to make sure, they weren't damaged or tweaked out of shape. Make sure the dishwasher is level in both directions, and the water level in the tub should be in contact with the heater element after a 5 minute wash and run cycle. Here's an easy diagnostic tool, Take a pair of pliers and insert the handle end through the tines on the lower rack and block the lower wash arm, so it cant turn/ rotate, and run the dishwasher, If leak subsides, the problem is definitely in the lower spray arm or bearing/seals, if leak persists, you'll need to check the water supply tube and pump assembly. Thanks and Good Luck
Is replacing the tub gasket as simple as pulling out the old and putting in the new? Gary
Answer Hello Gary. Yes, you will pull out the old gasket and press in the new one. Hope this helps.
