Would the tank deflector cause my dishwasher to leak when running if it is worn out.
Answer Hello Veronica. Yes if the tank deflectors are bad they can cause the dishwasher to leak. Another thing can cause a leak is a bad tub gasket, or a faulty spray arm. Hope this helps.

My dishwasher is leaking from bottom door . I replaced the door gasket , still leaks ? I am thinking maybe the float ? Thanks for any info you can give !
You will want to check the spray arms to make sure that they are not cracked or clogged. A cracked or clogged spray arm could cause the unit to have a ripple effect that causes water to splash out from the unit.
Leak around bottom of door.Door gasket has never been replaced,it does not go all the way down to bottom of groove( 1") on left side
How to know if tank deflector (33781400) defective?
Answer Hello Bill,
If there is wear on the deflector then it is bad. You may also want to check spray arms to make sure that they are not clogged or broken and causing rippling effect.
