GE Dishwasher Leaks

GE Dishwasher (GSD650T-55WB) is leaking from the gate shaft seal (item 417 on parts list). Is it worth replacing this seal or the whole pump assy?
Thanks!

You can easily screw up the drain diverter arm trying to replace that seal. Repair is difficult. Pump assembly is rather expensive. (especially considering this was not a top of the line model) You would be much better off replacing the dishwasher. The new GE models are much quieter and have eliminated the center tower in almost all models.

Why does water leak out all over the floor from the dishwasher while in use. It seems to happen only in certain phases of the cycle. Please help. Thank you.


Normally, when a dishwasher leaks it is a result of two easily checked items. The seals around the door and the door latch. The the door seal has a tear in it or is worn or even folded over, it does not form a tight seal, so when the dishwasher goes into a spray mode, it leaks. Another item is the door latch, if it isn't tight enough, it will not be tight against the seal.

Magic Chef DU55CA-01 unit runs but when pump kicks on for discharge cyle water leaks on the floor from the what appears to be the solenoid part. The leaking stops as soon as the pump turns off. What part...


Leaking from drain valve shaft seal. If you just replace the seal it may still leak. Replacing the pump is a lot of work and not really worth it to cure a small leak.

We have a GE Dishwasher Model # GSD 2000 Z02AD - water leaks


If your dishwasher leaks, check these:Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

1. Lower rack
2. Spray arm
3. Spray arm support
4. Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.


Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. 


Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

GE 24in GSD980X Dishwasher water leak in pump &motor area


I had the same problem. There is no way of replacing seal/joint between pump and motor. It can't be taken apart w/o destroying parts, it only comes as an assembly. Costs around 130$ for pump/motor assy, so it might not be worth it.
