If your dishwasher leaks, check these:
Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

1. Lower rack
2. Spray arm
3. Spray arm support
4. Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.


Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. 


Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

My dishwasher is leaking water from the front door


The water inlet level setting could be faulty and thus "overfills" the washer with water. The water level is senced via a plastic tube feeding an ajustable switch. Sometimes the plastic pressur sence pipe gets clogged and water level is then not correct. The switch can have burnt contacts and might need replacing.

I have ge dishwasher thats 3 years old and I'm having problems with it leaking from the bottom of the door. I replaced the seal once but I can't tell what else the problem could be. Any suggestions?


it could be overfilling. check the overflow float inside. if it is stuck down, the water level will get to high. the seal is not meant to be under water. it just stops splashing water. if it moves freely, it is okay.

KitchenAid Dishwasher Leaking from under Door


I had a similar problem with a KUDM25SHWH1 dishwasher. Rubber seal looked fine. I found an incredible tip on another fixi it site. One possible problem iss the pump cover screws may have worked loose and is squirting water directly on the door seal. Man that was it! I saw a couple of looses screws and a small portion of the pump cover gasket showing. I loosened the pump top, reset the gasket tightened it all down...no leaks! The pump I refer to is located directly below the spray arm inside the washer. Easy to get to. Another tip was to look for a split sspray arrm that may spray water directly into the door seal.
