Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB1050REC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
Hi I have a dishwasher that leaks water from the bottom front of the door.as well. I have removed the front panel and can see that the water pushes through the front tub seal and splashes out above the front of the tub. If you don;t mind sharing how you corrected your issue I would appreciate it.
I replaced the seal part # 154576501. The notch is on the right facing the dishwasher. Just pull it out and insert the new one.
I've fought this problem for over a year, thinking it was an adjustment. I am now running it through the third cycle and I am positive it fixed my leak. Also, while you have the cover off, check and trim the tie-wrap around the wire loom. Mine was interfereing with the seal, but the seal was also slightly distorted allowing the splash to come underneath.

If your dishwasher leaks, check these:Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
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.
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.
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.
thanks for using FixYa
