I have replaced the vent, and the door seal and it is still leaking from the front, does the door seal need to be put in with a gasket glue?
Answer Hello Nancy,
You should look closely at the spray arms. They will sometimes separate where they are put together at the factory and cause a surge of water to come from the side of them. This will put a wave in the water as the spray arm circulates. Stopped up holes in the spray arms will also cause the same effect. The door seal does not glue in.
How do get the vent of off the inside panel of the door?
Answer Hello Rodney,
The vent grille on the inside of the door holds the assembly to the door panel. To remove it, turn the grille about 1/4 turn. The vent assembly will drop off on the other side.
How do you know if the vent house assembly is bad? My dishwasher is blowing steam past the door seal. It doesn't appear the vent is exhausting any steam. Can the switch be tested?
Answer Hello Brian. Press heated dry 5 times, then press the start key within 8 seconds. The normal light will flash 3 times. If you press cycles select/normal one time the heavy wash light will come on, and the vent should open. If it does not open, then the switch is bad. It takes this a little time to open, about 30 seconds it should be moving. Hope this helps.
