Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
I think I solved the door leaking problem by cleaning out the plastic filter screen on the inside (left) door panel. Didn't even know it was there, never knew it was suppose to be cleaned! It was so clogged and gross. I also discovered that my washer had shifted and was off balance. It has wood shims under the steel casing and one block was loose. No doubt from slamming and banging the door open and closed. Had to take the front skirt and kickplate off to see. I had my son use a lever and hoisted it up a little while I replaced the block shim now making the washer level again. Ran a light wash before fixing problems and it leaked. We ran a light wash after the fix's and so far so good. Haven't ran a regular longer wash yet. My water level was fine, no gasket problems, no washer wand cracks, etc... My husband was thrilled! When he came home, I informed him I have good news and not so good news. The not so good news was dinner was going to be late, the good news was I fixed the leaking (for months!)dishwasher and saved alot of money on repairs!
**Cleaned filter screen, made dishwasher level again.
