Question about Danby 22 in. DDW396 Free-standing Dishwasher
Okay, first off the rinse fluid seams to drip out of the door of the dishwasher. It appears at the bottom lip directly under the door. Large quantities of it come out in a day (needless to say, I've stopped putting in rinse fluid). I thought about taking the door apart and seeing if there is a seal missing or broken and trying to fix it that way, but I'm a bit worried about taking the door apart. I cant find the source of the drip/leak. I'm not sure if it matters if the door is open and closed, I haven't tried that yet and does it matter? My other problem is that the spray arm seams to rotate slow unless I turn off the dishwasher, then turn it back on. When I do that, it rotates rather quickly and cleans the dishes more properly. I was thinking that my counter might be on an angle so air is being trapped inside of the pump causing it to work slowly, though I haven't moved it or changed its angle yet to find out. Thank you for your time.
Leaking out the door: If you have one of the danbys with the little window on the door the seal there is probably not working - the interior window piece has probably come unhooked/glued from the door a little so their is no longer pressure holding the rubber seal in place. At least that is what happened to mine. You can fix it with 3M Scotch-Seal Industrial Sealant 800, that is what is recommended by danby. Worked great on mine.
As for cleaning the gunk in the bottom, see my answer to someones question about the unit not draining.

From the description it seems like the unit isnt getting enough water,the arm wont spin as quickly if the dishwasher doesnt have enough water in it.before you run a cycle pour a quart of water in the tank,if the unit runs fine then you have a float problem.let me know.
