My dishwasher is leaking from the bottom. I've checked the seal and it seems to be good. I did not take it out. It does it with plan water. What do you suggest?
Answer Hello Debra,
The door seal is not designed to go across the bottom since the bottom of the door is designed to be the air inlet for the dry cycle so the issue could well be there. If water is jumping the air gap you need to check the spray arms for debris. You see, if the spray arm is partially clogged on one end, there will be more pressure escaping from the other end. As the spray arm spins, this inconstant pressure will put a "wave" in the water in the bottom of the tub. This will "slosh" the water over the air gap. If the spray arms are not clogging, there is also the possibility of the spray arms separating in the center, where the manufacturer assembled the upper and lower halves of them. This also will put a wave in the water.
