Question about LG 24 in. LDS 5811 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Water is leaking onto the floor from the front of the unit.

It seems that the front door seal is shot allthough the unit is just over a year old...the problem is that I can't seem to constrict my torso enough to fit in there to servey the damage and or pin point the problem. and Ideas?

    Thank you MNTECH for taking the time to answer my issue, I took the time to remove the outer door skin to survey the problem and whitness the leakage from the outside of the unit and saw where the seal was leaking I will now use the part number you listed and purchase that seal.

You might try a part number 3920DD3005A door gasket, which is a bit thicker than the old ones and should help with this issue for many LG dishwashers.

Maytag dishwasher leak


If it's leaking from the door, a new gasket may fix this. If it's leaking from the pump, the seal is worn out, and the repair may be too costly or difficult. If the unit is 5 years old, consider a replacement.

Hi,maybe the draw dispencer is damaged,I wouldnt think it is the drum seal,what I would do is tilt the washing machine so that the top of the machine is leaning against the wall so that the front of the machine is of the ground,then while you get underneath the front on the floor with a torch get someone to put water in the dispencer and see if you can see where the water is leaking from,I hope this was some help,all the best.

Hello,
Check the rubber seal in the bottom of the door has not perished or split,also check the bottom spray arm has not split on the ends as this will direct the spray directly onto the door,causing it to leak.

Hope this helps

Dishwasher is leaking in front onto floor. Water level during washing seems too high. Float is not obstructed by any object. What can I do next?


if it seems to be coming from the front it may be the rubber door seal they are not to expensive and not very hard to change if it is leaking under machine it may be the seal that sits on top of motor if water is leaking around motor the seal in the bottom of the washer is damaged

Peace BeeSuit,

Happy to be of assistance,


You asked:
Your, AEG 6200 Digitronic washing machine is leaking from the front door seal down the front and onto the floor.
Is this a common problem and can it be fixed?
- for example by replacing the opening rubber seal?

Yes I believe that replacing the rubber seal is usually the answer.

How old is the unit? And is the washer working well other wise?
Is it draining and not smelling like mold in side?
Some times in an old machine the pump does not completely dran out and it could smell like moldy water! Then if it's aged. I would consider not fixing both of these to problems in a washer 10 years or older not to put good money in to bad!
But if the leak is the only problem, go for the seal!
Happy to of assisted and made a different s in your life!
Bless you,
Huuum

Please give me a good rating for my sound advice before you sigan off.
Thank You
