it may not be the door that is leaking if this is an older admiral or whirlpool dishwasher the lever that holds the soap door closed has a little rubber seal that after time will let water in during the wash cycle it the runs down the inside of the door and out the bottom if you rmove the in side of the door you will probably see the water trail from the wax motor down. this gasket is not expensive or hard to replace.

Dishwasher leaks from bottom


You must first determine exactly where the water is coming from. The water supply line may be loose or cross-threaded. The overflow float may be stuck in the down position. This will allow the machine to over-fill and leak. The door seal may be worn or off-position. The drain line may be loose or have a hole in it. The wash tub may have a crack in it that needs to be sealed. A gasket around the motor or the heating element may be loose or split.
Get a flashlight. Remove the bottom panel. Start the cycle. Get comfortable on the floor and watch closely. This may be a simple fix. Something like tightening a loose hose. Good luck

Dishwasher is leaking water. Water is puddling


There is a tube on the side of your dishwasher for over flow. It sounds to me like your washer was moved and it banged against that line. You can put some caulking around where it enters the washer and that should be fine. The bottom can be several things. If your washer was removed and reinstalled like say maybe floor installation the supply line, or waste line may not be tight. If your unit has not been moved recently it is most likely the motor housing. Take off the one or two covers on the front bottom of the washer. Place the washer through the cycles and with a flashlight see at what cycle and where the water is coming from. It it appears to be coming from the white housing it's the motor. It's cheaper to just replace the unit as these motor housings are around $150.00. Check out craigslist. Hope this helps.

Kenmore 17263 has a noisy motor and is leaking at the motor


I am not familiar with your particular model - so take my advice lightly.
Usually the motor and sump (not the bottom pan) come as one assembly that come as a unit. Replacing both is usually easiest and economical considering that a motor problem could be caused by something wrong with the sump, or the other away around.
Thiis is something you can fix yourself if you are mechanically inclined.

My admiral is leaking at the bottom of the door. I have checked & cleaned all around the seals that made it worse.


The most common reason for leaks is a failed/cracked gasket. Replacing it is actually not as hard as it appears.

The second reason for leaking is damaged/bent (sprung) hinges that, when the door is closed/latched do not tightly seal the door against the gasket.

Please report what you find, OK?

GE 24in GSD980X Dishwasher water leak in pump &motor area


I had the same problem. There is no way of replacing seal/joint between pump and motor. It can't be taken apart w/o destroying parts, it only comes as an assembly. Costs around 130$ for pump/motor assy, so it might not be worth it.

Leaking around seal in the center of dishwasher


the white hook peice is just that, a clip to hld down the motor. as you reinstalled you must have twisted or shifted housing to "pop" that clip. no worries easy fix. remove the lower rack and give alook at the motor assy from within ther tub make sure the black gasket is pushed completely down flush with the bottom of the d/w. applying pressure to top of motor assy will push it flush. the motor simply rests in the opening . the clip holds it in place from underneath, unable to find a pic but there a 3 in total under unit.

Dishwasher leak


With dishwasher empty and disconnected, find the screws around the area of the "vent",you may need to open it from the bottom. There will be a hose that has either ruptured or just needs the clamp tightened with a screw driver. I think that the hose is a drain or water return. Should be an easy fix.
