Amana Dishwasher is leaking down the outside front panel under the latch Assy/controls. What can cause this? Do I need to replace the door seal?
Answer Steve, No replacing the door seal will not solve the leakage from the control/door panel area. You do want to check and make sure the water in the bottom of the tub does not exceed 140 dgrs. F. when it fills. You will need to remove the control panel and the outer door panel. Check the vent system for a proper mount to the door liner, a proper tight fit to the control panel and foam seal 6-919801 and
