My kenmore dishwasher is leaking in the bottom right hand corner of the door. It was leaking profusely, but I cleaned out a lot of gunk and it has greatly reduced. Any other thoughts?

Works fine, cleans properly, last couple of times has big puddle of water over floor, seems to be coming from underneath machine. checked filters, hoses etc and all ok. machine is approx. 8 yrs old..


one some models such as kenmore or hotpoint, the door seals go bad (the black rubber things in the corner at the base of the door)
On others such as tappan and frigidaire
the little corner diverters come away from the base (they are semi clear plastic and
attach to the bottom of the dishwasher in each corner near the door).

Also if you have done a lot of dishes by hand the soap may accumulate in the sump of the dishwasher and cause it to oversuds causing soapy water to leak out the front.
If you use regular dish detergent instead of dishwasher detergent, this will occur as well.

Last thing to look at, especially on hotpoint, ge or kenmore is the shaft that enters the
side of the pump which is attached to a triangle shaped piece of plastic. The seal often
fails there and will require pump replacement as it is molded into the case of the unit.

My dishwasher is leaking out the front. It drips from the lower left hand corner. Any suggestions to what is causing the leak?


Either the tub gasket needs replacement (item 3) in this diagram. or the door base gasket needs replacement. Alternatively, the door vent seal could be leaking. Item 4 in this diagram.

Hope this helps.

probably the around the tank seal needs to be replaced. But first clean all of the build up of gunk from under the door seal. Use a tooth brish and be careful not to cut yourself on sharp stainless steel edges.

Brand new kenmore dishwasher leaking out the front


Check the door gasket for uniform seating. Align it. If this does not solve the problem, contact the service provider. He may change the gasket or do the corrective action.

Leaking door


Step one is to carefully inspect the gasket that is mounted on the dishwasher (not the door) and search for damage.

If the gasket has not failed, look carefully as the door is closed. If the door/hinges have been damaged (sprung) your dishwasher can not close completely.

Report back here what you found and if that does not solve the problem there are further steps to take,=. OK?

Happened on my dish washer too. Remove lower rack, remove lower spray arm by removing the center plastic nut, check screws (torx) on outside edge of pump. Tighten these as necessary, mine were loose causing water to spray forward against the tub causing leakage.

Whirlpool dishwasher leaks


Just about all dishwashers will leak a little around the door seal over time but should not leak to the point of wetting the floor. With the door open, check in the front of the tub, under the door. Lots of gunk? Clean this area out well plus take a soft damp rag and clean the door gasket while feeling for any damage. Then go along the mating surface of the door and look for any nicks. If it leaked all the time I would suspect the door hinges have been sprung. Hope this helps, Ken
