GE Profile GSD series built-in leaks from bottom of door

Checked underneath and it is dry. Leaks from bottom of door, usually on the right side. Machine is level side-to-side and front-to-back. Began leaking occasionally about 1.5 years ago. Now leaks every time it is run. Leaks a small amount -- no big puddles. If a dish or pot is placed in the front of the dishwasher, parallel to the door, it leaks more. All cycles seem to work and dishes are cleaning properly. Dishwasher is about 5 years old. Thanks for your help.

    Looks like a comprehensive answer to most leaks. Thanks. I think it's the door seal. If the tub was leaking, it would be wet underneath the dishwashern, not just below the door.

Hi,

To my understanding, this is a known issue and GE has addressed this by replacing the door gasket. Please reference this page for more related information on the recall. Should you prefer to perform a DIY (do-it-yourself), the gaskets are readily available from most kitchen appliance parts center but have the exact model number ready. Pls start here or here. The gasket would look something like below.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

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:

  • Lower rack


  • Spray arm


  • Spray arm support


  • 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 Profile Dishwasher leaking from the bottom


If your dishwasher is Leaking check the following

Dishwasher Not Leveled

This is a very common reason for a leaking dishwasher especially if this was a new installation. The framing in a dishwasher is made up of mostly thin sheet metal, so if it is not sitting flat and level things can get distorted very easily.

Door Seal

This is not very common in most dishwashers. To check this look for rips and distortion of the seal. If it is ripped or distorted you will need to replace.

Dispenser Seal

This is a more common place for a leak to develop. This is easy to check, remove the front panel and carefully inspect around the seal for water dripping or stainage. If any is found replace the dispensergasket.

Water Inlet Valve

Usually it is the connection to the water inlet valve that ends up leaking. Check this connection ( there is usually some sort of adaptor between the valve and supply hose) for leaks. Check the connection on the back of the water inlet valve also. Ocassionaly a water inlet valve will leak around the solenoid in this case reokace inlet valve

Drain / Circulating Pump

Some dishwashers have separate drain and circulating pump. Some use one pump to serve both purposes. In either case you will need to check the housings for leaks along with all the connections. Some dishwashers have a seal that leaks down into the pump . This is easy and inexpensive to replace.

Door Latch

The door latch can become loose or misalinged. Check both the striker and the latch. To adjust the latch you will need to remove the front panel and adjust switch until properly aligned.

Door Hinges

They can cause problems, but this usually only happens from opening a heavy load of dishes on the door. Occassionaly a broken spring or cable occurs. You will need to remove the toe kick and maybe the front panel to inspect.
Use the VOM. God bless you

GE Profile GSD4010202AA Built in Dishwasher acts as if no power


1. turn breaker off to diswasher. 2. remove bottom access cover. 3. remove cover over electrical connection box on right side. 4. hold each wire nut connector and firmly tug on one wire at at time to make sure none of the wires pull out of the wire connecor nuts. A loose connection here is more common than you might think.
If those are all OK, turn breaker back on and make sure you have power there. (120 volts black to white) If that was OK, then check door latch switch inside door at the top center and wires passing through door at the bottom of the door.

Does not drain properly . It leaks through the door.


The leaks through the door problem is caused by an overfilled tub. Remember, these dishwashers aren't bath tubs. Those seals are only designed to keep water from splashing out, not for completely filling the dishwasher with water. These problems are both caused by the slow drain, and can usually be fixed quite easily by removing and cleaning the strainer screen and using a wet/dry shop vacuum to **** out the debris underneath. If your shopvac is powerful enough it will also clean out the water pump.
Replace the screen and try again.

Door leaks on the floor in front of my dishwasher


1. make sure dishwasher is level front to back and side to side.
2. check the main washer arm (WD22X154) on the bottom side for leaks. If you use heated dry, the heating elements can cause the part of the spray arm directly over it to soften and eventually leak. When water comes out that leak it can spray at the bottom of the door, splashing water inside it and resulting in your leak.
3. if 1 and 2 OK, watch how you load the lower rack. If dishes or a bowl direct water from the lower wash arm to spray against the bottom of the door, especially at the center of the door bottom, the resulting splash inside the door allows water to hit the outer door panel and drip out a one or both corners of the door.

Leaks while running


The water at the bottom is normal if you open it during the cycle. Leak means you need to replace the L-shaped black, molded gasket that is in the lower left or right of your door opening. Replacement is easy - requires no tools. Part can be purchased for about $10 each at Sears parts department.
