Question about GE Dishwashers
My dishwasher leaks inside the door. Popping the inside cover off, I found that the leak comes through the hole for the detergent dispenser shaft.There's no seal around the shaft, but it looks like there should be.I can find the shaft on line, but no seal. Is there supposed to be one? Something needs to keep the water from going from the detergent dispenser to inside the door.

On this model the vent is open and shut by a wax motor. The vent should be closed tight during the entire wash cycle and the first 6 minutes of the drying cycle. Check the operation, make sure there is not a bunch of gunk restricting it. If you are handy with a meter check the resistance of the motor. It should read approx. 2100ohms. Another reason for leaking at the base is oversudzing. Also check the upper spray arm for cracks or splits shooting water into the vent area. Catriver...post back.

Hello. Anything is worth trying! But I would recommend epoxy. It works alot better with plastic and rubber items. Most of the leaks I have found in Kenmore machines are at the water pump. You may want to take a peek while it's running, just stay away from the wires!! Thanks!

there is no solution for it because of its design. i have same GE and same problem. It is happening because top rack is right front of the detergent cup and it is not opening 180 degree while it is washing. it opens only 15 or 20 degree and water just doesnt get in there as much as suppose to be because only water can get in there from the bottom sprayer arm because detergent cup lid is not allowing water to get in the cup from middle and top sprayer like any other dishwasher! i called them so many times and they are just jerks! they blame anyting about my house but their dishwasher. their tec. showed up 4 times and they just keep blaming hot water temrature etc. water temprature doesnt matter if water cant get in the detergent cup, right? but they dont want to admit that because they are like programed robots to give you same answers and just blame you but GE dishwasher. please fill out complain form with Consumer Complaint Department. you should be able to find their address and web site on the internet. Please do so, maybe we can get refund or replacement or something. Never ever buy GE again. Just get a Bosch.

There are two different types of dishwasher detergent types, bleach based and enzyme based. The owner's manual states that if the two are ever mixed that the mixture will congeal, clogging the dispenser.
I don't know exactly how to safely remove the detergent that is in there, perhaps a wet/dry vaccuum. There is likely a service mode for the dishwasher if it has electronic buttons, in the service mode you could activate the pump that dispenses the detergent. Use caution, the thicker the clog, the harder the pump has to work and it may fail. Hope this helps.
