Leaky detergent dispenser : GE dishwasher GSD980T

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.

SOURCE: Water Leak at vent area in 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.

SOURCE: Dishwasher tub leaks underneath

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!

SOURCE: dishwasher detergent left in dispenser

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.

SOURCE: smart dispense detergent dispenser

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.

The problem I have with my LG dishwasher is that a green thick liquid leaks out onto the kick board. I noticed this when the door is half open, I wiped it off but it returns all the time.


Is this ooze perhaps similar to the same color as your liquid detergent or wetting agent (Jet Dri) ? A leaky dispenser would allow these fluids to leak down inside the door where they would continue down and out along the lower door edge. The only other option involves removing the outer door panel to investigate inside the door assembly. There should be no other sources of this sort of material.

Leaking clear water from behind the faceplate


Most likely the lid seal and/ or the detergent dispenser seal is leaky. Do not operate the dishwasher in this condition as the water can cause electrocution because the mains voltage comes up to the drawer front panel. Most likely it is the detergent dispenser seal.

see this diagram.

Ge potscrubber 700 dishwasher - the soap dispenser cover is locked and will not open. I have run the dishwasher several times and tried to force it but it will not budge. any suggestions?


Soap dispenser cover will not open until front knob is at 4:30 or 5 o'clock. Turn knob to 5 o'clock and jiggle dispenser cover. If cover still does not open, is detergent caked such that door won't open? If yes, remove caked detergent. If no, disconnect power at breaker. GE repair manual says to remove screws for inner door panel and inspect detergent dispenser mechanism with lever and trip lever for broken or binding parts.

Dishwasher suds up and leaks during wash


Suds in a dishwasher usually come from using too much soap or the wrong kind. Soap can build up over times causing problems. First start a cycle.Do not add detergent or any dishes.When it starts washing, pour a cup of vegetable oil directly into the tub. This will cut the existing soap suds. You may need to try this a couple time before the dishwasher will drain. After all suds have been removed, load you dishwasher and start a cycle filling the detergent cup up half way. If it goes through the cycle with no problems, you should be all set. Still have the problem? A rinse aid dispenser that dispenses too much rinse aid will also cause the dishwasher to suds up. You can remove the dispenser from the door, flush it out and reinstall. Make sure you turn the circuit breaker off before taking the door apart. After rinsing it out, do not add rinse aid. Try the dishwasher and see if the problem goes away. I've seen people accidentally put liquid dish detergent in dispensers too. A dishwasher that has suds is apt to leak. Fix your suds issue and you most likely will fix you leak

Leaking at the bottom in the middle of the door


you need to determine if it's coming from inside the door or under the front of the dishwasher, if the door latch needs adjusting it can get water through the latch slot, the dispenser can work it's way loose and water can leak through it, or the seal on the bottom of the door can get dirt stuck on it which can cause water to leak out.
Otherwise it could be in the bottom of the dishwasher, it is a matter of closer investigation.

My ge potscrubber 650 is leaking onto the floor in front of the dishwasher. What is the likely problem?


Check you filter and screen .Check whether you need an replacement for them.


If you dishwasher has foam coming out from under the door, then the problem is that dish soap somehow ended up in the dishwasher or excessive rinse aid . It is not recommended to prewash the dishes before loading them into the dishwasher as only a small amount of dish soap can cause the sudsing that you experienced. Only detergent specifically designed for automatic dishwashers such as Electrasol®, Cascade® or Cascade Complete® should be used. Spilling rinse aid while filling the dispenser will cause sudsing also.

To clear the suds from the dishwasher sprinkle several tablespoons of non-dairy coffee creamer over the suds. The fat in the creamer will help break down the bubbles. Wait five minutes for the suds to lessen.

Many pump leaks happen around the seal on the pulley. Some pumps have a weep hole that lets water drip out when this seal begins to go bad. The solution is to rebuild or replace the pump.

You'll want to confirm that the fill hoses are connected and properly tightened. Always use new rubber washers when re-installing the hoses. Take care not to over-tighten the connection. Other leaks may be caused by the drain hose being cracked, or by a leaky connection at the water-inlet valve. Too many suds may cause the appearance of a leak when actually it's just a sudsy overflow. Sometimes a drain hose leak occurs at the end of the hose where it attaches to the washer. If the hose is long enough you can cut the leaky end off and re-clamp the hose back on. Usually though, when a hose begins to leak, it is best to just replace the hose.

The smart soap dispenser on my GE profile dishwasher is not dispensing soap. I filled the smart dispenser several months ago and it does not appear that any of the soap was dispensed. how do i resolve?...


We mistakenly switched liquid detergents and mixed enzyme based and bleach based. They gelled in the dispenser. I took the outer door cover off and could not figure out how to take the white plastic despenser off of the main door without breaking it. I disconected the electrical harness and took the main door off the hinges so I could take it outside, turn it upside down and use the garden hose pressure nozzle to blast the gellout of the white plastic dispenser. I use a piece of plastic coat hanger to poke around inside to break up the gell several times. It all came out in marble size pieces.

Kitchenaid dishwasher leaking from door


Check the screws on the pump cover under the lower spray arm (the spray arm is easy to remove, the screws are torx - maybe a torx 10 or 15, so a regular screwdriver wont work). They come loose on ours every 6-12 months and spray water at the door, causing it to leak all over our wood floor. I routinely tighten those screws now before they come loose enough to cause the problem.

Door leak


Br, couple of things you can look for here. Check the vent, you can just pop this out. Sometimes there is a buildup of gunk which will hold water during wash and leak down between the door. There is a seal there, part number 974782. Another thing is to check the upper spray arm for cracks or splitting. This can send a direct flow of water into the vent. There is also a seal at the bottom of the upper spray arm, part number 3376846. I was fooled by a leak like this once, it turned out to be a clogged vent...Catriver..post back.
