Whirlpool "(vinyl case) Quick Wash Plus" leaks from door's left side during rinse

I bought a dozen of these (not the cheapest model, $250 ea.) from Sears last year for apartment renovations. A month ago tenant vacated and it has not been in use for a month. New tenant comes in and the dish washer is leaking suds during rinse from the lower left side of the door. I am wondering as to whether the door's positin can or should be adjusted or the rubber foam which makes the contact is the issue. If so, where do I get it and is there a certain direction I should follow or watch for in replacing it.

Many thanks,

Why does my whirlpool model WTW57ESVW1 starts to rinse toward the end of the spin cycle?


The rinse is supposed to start during the spin...it's what removes most of the soap from your clothing! The spin forces the water through the clothes, flushing all but a small amount of the detergent away. The rinse cycle itself is more to remove solid debris that may have become trapped in the folds of cloth. It does so by floating and agitating the clothes.

The quick wash cycle is only for things that aren't soiled much, that you need to be done fast. It's not for everyday washing, just for things that maybe need no more than a freshening up. It makes it faster by cutting corners.

I need to know what the buttons say on the dishwasher. Mine have no letters


Hi,

Some SHX46 washers have 4 wash cycle buttons and others have 5. The button on the left side on top of the door is the start/stop button regardless of how many wash cycle buttons you have.


If you have 5 cycle buttons, reading from left to right they will be as follows.

1. Top Rack Only / Sanitize
2. Power Scrub Plus - (Long wash for heavy soil)
3. Regular Wash - (Economy wash for light to medium soil)
4. Delicate Wash - (Shorter wash at a lower temperature for delicate items)
5. Rinse & Hold.

These buttons are also used for cancelling a wash cycle. Hold down buttons 2 and 4 (Power Scrub Plus and Delicate) at the same time to cancel a wash cycle and drain the water out.

If your washer does have 4 buttons, it means you don't have a Top Rack / Sanitize cycle, in which case the button configuration - from left to right - will be:

1. Power Scrub Plus - (Long wash for heavy soil)
2. Regular Wash - (Economy wash for light to medium soil)
3. Delicate Wash - (Shorter wash at a lower temperature for delicate items)
4. Rinse & Hold.

With this button configuration, the cancel cycle buttons are 1 and 3.


I hope this solves your problem. If you need any additional information, please post back.

Regards,
BElectric

you say water only leaks when it fills correct? am wondering if its the hose that feeds in to the washer

Maytag Jet Clean leaking through right side of door during rinse


It is important to examine the leak to see where it probably originates.

If the water is leaking from the right hand side of the door on your dishwasher, it is time to replace the gasket that seals the door when the door is latched.

Whirlpool duet washer leaking water


If the washer is leaking around the door area, more than likely the bellow (rubber seal) is ripped or torn. If you pull back the rubber folds in the bellow and inspect, you may find a rip or tear causing your leak.

Another cause can be the rear bellow clamp (clamp that is affixed to the front of the wash tub) can come loose causing a leak between the bellow and tub. All you may have to do is tighten the clamp if this is the case.

The dispenser tube on the left hand side of the door, if not seated through the rubber correctly, can also leak during the fill or rinse cycles. The tube should be inserted through the rubber in the bellow to the flange on the tube. If not, water can fill behind the rubber and drip into the bottom washer casing.

The following link explains how to access and/or replace the the door bellow on a Whirpool Duet:

Searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com and repairclinic.com carry the bellow. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all of them for the best deal.

If you have any questions, or require addtional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you. NOTE: The bellow can also become mishapened over time after frequent use. This can also cause leaks around the door. Look to make sure the bellow is sealing around the door glass. If not, it should also be repalced.

Lg DISHWASHER INTERMITTENT WATER LEAK


I have this same dishwasher,and have had the same problems that have been described in this forum..

LG model#LDS5811.I bought it from Home Depot as a scratch and dent with no warranty available for about $400.00.

The problems I have seen on my own and have read online have been Intermittent leaks on the left side door,as well as both sides.And in some cases,even wiring and motor problems.

In my case,the water was coming from a leaking O-ring behind the evaporator housing in the door,as well as a small hole in the drain hose in the part of the hose on the left side where the hose loops up the side of the machine behind the panel before it comes out of the back.

You will need to take the left side panel off to undo the wire holding the hose in place as well as remove the bottom plate over the motor to gain access to remove the hose from the pump to get the hose off of the machine.Simply replace the hose.You can order online or buy a replacement at an Appliance Repair store as I did.

To repair the door leak,you will need to remove the lower outside panel that is under the control panel.Inside the door,you will need to turn the vent cover at the top of the door counter clock-wise one-forth turn and remove the entire evaporator unit as a whole.You will see a 1.5 inch O-ring.

I repaired this by getting G.E 100% silicone that you can purchase at a Home Repair store like Lowes or Home Depot and sealing around both sides as well as putting a good bead on top of the O-ring itself,and wipe off the excess after re-installing.

I performed these repairs over a month ago,and have had very good success.No leaks to be seen.I am a A\C,Refrigeration Tech by trade,and have done alot of Appliance repair/installation as a side trade from being a maintenance technician at some very large Grocery chains the last 20+ years.

I completely dissassembled this machine and have found it to be a decent product,but some shoddy materials and questionable assembly practices have created these problems,but good sound engineering.

I hope this helps someone with the problems with this machine so it wont be a total loss.

Dishwasher just emptying


I am at the end of my tether. I have bought a new door latch for my Bosch SGS 43E02 GB45, so door now closes properly and have managed to stop the leak under the front left hand side of the machine. Howver it sounds as if it is constantly emptying. It does not go onto the new wash cycle just keeps pumping out the water. It did run a quick rinse yestreday but now is back to the constant emptying problem. Even when I open the door it still keeps running and staying on a emptying cycle despite there being no visible water left inside the machine. Please help!!
