I had the same problem last night. I had the Outer Door Panel off trying to solve why our machine does not operate all the time.
There is a seal under the air Vent Cover that is inside of the door on the left hand side. This Vent Cover attaches to the air fan ducting. The Vent Cover unscrews (counterclock wise). I put plumber's putty between the seal and Door Panel. Tighten the Vent with the large opening down for draining. Seems to work for me.

I later found a bent lower door seal - next thing to try and fix.

This dishwasher has a vent at the bottom left of the door that blows out hot moist air during the drying cycle. Are you sure that you are not getting condensation build up from this vented air that is dripping on your floor?

Kenmore model #16761691 leaking at the bottom of the door. Where is the gasket located? Or is it another problem?


does it leak all the time or did it just start?try running it with nothing in it and see if it leaks,if the dishes were racked wrong the water can get deflected and leak out through the door,also,remove the bottom rack,look at the screws going around the bottom part under the wash arm,if any of those are loose it causes a wave in the dish washer and the water leaks from under the door.if it's leaking from one of the corners the gasket could be bad

Dishwasher leaks from the bottome of the door


if it leaked everytime then it would be your door gasket.but not everytime it's your door latch not engaging completely everytime.open the door and look and see if you can access the tightening screw for the door latch.probably not but look anyway.if you can then tighten the latch.

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.

I have a Kitchenaid KUDS25SHBL1 dishwasher that is leaking from the bottom of the door. I replaced the main gasket around the body that the door seals against, and it is still leaking.


Have you removed the outer door to check if the leak is coming from inside the door . also check the bottom door seal ? also check the around the soap dispenser as I have had to silicone around them to keep them from leaking before..let me know if this helps at all.
