Hi karen_kinzer,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

The d/w was a recent purchase?

Then my advise to you is don't worry about it! The unit should be under warranty. It's time to make the call. Let the warranty repairman worry about it. If he can't fix it, he has the authority to condemn it and you'll get a new one. Anyway, this is one problem you should not have to worry about.

Feel free contact me again!

SOURCE: Brand new dishwasher installed and water leaks out bottom of door

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 thecenter bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probablyapply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn'tserviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

Themain tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water inthe dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get tothe seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

  • Lower rack


  • Spray arm


  • Spray arm support


  • Wash/drain impellers


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

Door gasket or seal Overtime, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to sealproperly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them ifthey've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve Thewater-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply linefrom the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the insideof the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these asnecessary.

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 thedishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses Behindthe lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastichoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If thatdoesn't work, replace the hose.

SOURCE: water leak at door of dishwasher. LDS 8511 WW

Because this is an LG 8511, it has a Hybrid Drying System that is completely in the door panel. Normaly, when the (dry) air exits this dishwasher, it leaves via a port at the bottom of the door. That system is clearly broken on your unit.
Water is almost certainly entering the internal port in the door that normally only allows moist air. Due to the wiring and other stuff in the door panel that is at risk, it is important to get this unit serviced soon.
Hope that helps. If you have more questions on this topic, please reply.

SOURCE: leaking water from front of door

I replaced the seal part # 154576501. The notch is on the right facing the dishwasher. Just pull it out and insert the new one.
I've fought this problem for over a year, thinking it was an adjustment. I am now running it through the third cycle and I am positive it fixed my leak. Also, while you have the cover off, check and trim the tie-wrap around the wire loom. Mine was interfereing with the seal, but the seal was also slightly distorted allowing the splash to come underneath.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Water Inlet Valve

If the dishwasher is leaking water the water inlet valve might be defective. If the water inlet valve sticks open, it will allow water to fill the dishwasher continuously. Some customers report that they see clean water filling the bottom of the dishwasher after it's been sitting all night or for a couple of days. If this happens, turn off the water that is supplying the dishwasher. This is normally a valve under the kitchen sink. Then, replace the water inlet valve, it cannot be repaired. The water valve needs at least 20 lbs pressure to shut off properly. If your water pressure is to low replacing the valve may not solve the problem.

Center Wash Arm Assembly

If the dishwasher is leaking water, the center wash arm assembly might be cracked or split. This can allow a jet of water to spray toward the door seal, causing a leak. If a crack or split in the center wash arm assembly is found, replace it. There isn't any glue that will hold the part together inside the dishwasher.





Lower Wash Arm Assembly

If the dishwasher is leaking water the lower wash arm assembly might be defective. If the lower wash arm has a crack or split on the end, it can force water to spray directly toward the lower part of the dishwasher door. Then, the water can be forced under the door and onto the floor. Check the lower wash arm for any cracks or splits and replace it if necessary. Also make sure the screws are tight in the wash arm support. If the screws are loose, water can spray out the side of the pump and cause a leak.





Upper Wash Arm Assembly

If the upper wash arm assembly is broken or cracked it can cause water to spray very forcefully toward the seams of the door, causing a leak.





Door Seal

Every dishwasher door has a door seal. If the dishwasher is leaking water, it might be that the door seal is defective or worn out. Try closing the dishwasher door on a dollar bill and see if the door seal is making good contact all the way around the door. If not, replace the door seal. If the door seal is good or has been replaced and there is still a leak check the door hinges. If the hinges are bent the door will not close properly and the hinges will need to be replaced.





Dishwasher Door Gasket

Every dishwasher door has a door seal. If the dishwasher is leaking water, it might be that the door seal is defective or worn out. Try closing the dishwasher door on a dollar bill and see if the door seal is making good contact all the way around the door. If not, replace the door seal.

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.

Have Kleenmaid "Super silent system"


Dishwasher Doesn't Fill

1) First make sure the water is turned on. Check the hot-water supply stop valve, normally located under the sink. Open it all the way by turning it counterclockwise. If there is no reason this would have been turned off since the last time the dishwasher worked, go on to the next step.

2) Turn off the power to the dishwasher.

3) When the dishwasher is cool, look for the float inside the dishwasher; this is usually a small plastic dome or cylinder mounted inside at the tub's base, near the front. When you move most types of floats up and down, you can hear them click because they trip a lever (they are spring-loaded).

Lift out the float mechanism, and clean around the float tube. Many floats must be disconnected from below; to do this you'll have to remove the lower access panel. Rinse off the float, replace it in the tube, and make sure it moves up and down freely.

4) If you're experienced with minor repair work, shut off the hot-water valve to the appliance. Locate the water intake valve, behind the dishwasher's bottom front panel; disassemble the valve to reveal the screen; clean debris from the screen; and reassemble. If the screen doesn't appear to be blocked, call a repairperson (he or she will probably need to replace the water intake valve).

5) If none of this helps, call a repairperson. Any of several parts-including the water inlet valve, pressure switch, and the timer or selector switch-may be faulty.

Dishwasher leaks after it fills up and starts to wash


Make sure the dishwasher is level. If the water is leaking from the door, you should replace the door gasket.
Water under the dishwasher could be from a leaking hose or loose hose connection. Check these by removing the bottom front panel.
The pump seal may need to be replaced. If you are not real handy, call a repairman for this replacement.

Bosch dishwasher is leaking fresh water from water inlet assembly


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If you have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using a detergent that is causing too much suds. Cut back on the amount of detergent you use, and see if that makes a difference.

Water that spills through the door vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment. you should check the main tub seal, the door latch, the door gasket, the water-inlet valve, and the fill and drain hoses.

Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).

Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses. The pump seal may be defective, too; replacing this is a job for an appliance repairperson.

An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.


Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee
