If you are still having this problem, try moving the spring on the tub gasket clamp (right at the bottom of the door opening) about 90 degrees to the left (to right by the hinge). Let me know if this solves your problem. Thanks.

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.I would start by removing the outer door panel remove the screws around the inner door to do this.Then close the door and start a cycle. Sometimes you can see obvious signs of leaks just by removing the panel too. But if not let it run and see if you see water leaking anywhere. You will see water in the bottom corners its normal. If water is splashing over those corners the check the lower spray arm gor damage or cracks it can cause this problem also make sure the screws under the spray arm are tight. also check the upper arm.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Water is dripping from the ice maker into the ice tray


you may have a bad water valve. the valve could be not completely shutting off. when you hear the ice maker begin to cycle open the freezer door and watch it. look to see if the plastic tube coming thru the back of the refrigerator is not leaking after the ice maker has completed its cycle. if it is dripping and running over your water valve is bad.

you may also check the level of the ice maker. sometimes you can be out of level causing a slight leak.

Front loaders are known for building up mold and the smell.
It’s caused by using liquid detergent which is made from animal fat. Use powder. And use the minimum amount.
It’s caused by using fabric softener. Dilute it 50/50 with water.
It’s caused by the water remaining in the tub between washes. Leave the door open to allow it to dry. .
Pull the rubber door seal back and clean the mold off .
Affresh is recommended by some manufacturers. You run it through a wash cycle with it.

KitchenAid KUDM25SH sprays water from under door at start up


Make sure the area where the door and bottom of the dishwasher meet there is not a buildup of debris. Inspect the dishwasher's gasket and make sure it's intact. It is pretty common to need to replace these. Finally, unscrew the little service door on the bottom of the machine and stand back and watch it for an entire first cycle. It might be squirting out of a slightly cracked pump housing that only leaks when subjected to the stress of startup, the water valve could be leaking when it opens to fill machine, or something else could be leaking. Make sure the wash arms are not damaged, are rotating freely, and don't have anything stuck in the jet holes.

Water Everywhere


Look for loose, cracked, pinched, broken hoses to and from the water pump or leaks from the water pump itself. The outer drum could have a rust-through that leaks. This can be repaired with epoxy, but the inner drum must be removed to access it. The cabinet top is opened by using a putty knife or similar tool to push straight back under each front corner which releases a spring latch. Sometimes, the drain hose outlet is pushed from the house drain by high water flow. Tie the hose to the drain with tape or cord. Fill the tub with water, then stop the cycle and watch for leaks.

Slight water leak towards end of cycle


Did u notice the Quantity of detergent used? If the leaking water is soaping, it is an indication of excess detergent used that cause the leaks. Reduce the detergent n observed the DW running, or run the DW without detergent several times to remove all residual residing inside the washer.If not check the door gasket or change the door gasket.

Leak


It sounds like you have a leak somewhere around the door bellow. This is the rubber boot that seals the wash tub to the door frame. Pull the folds back and inspect around the entire perimeter of the rubber. You could have a small rip or tear somewhere. There are a series of small holes in the bottom of the bellow that are supposed to be there. This is the allow any standing water to drain back into the wash tub. If you cannot find any obvious signs of leaks, remove the lower panel under the door. This is accomplished by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then off. Start the washer on a normal wash and watch for any leaks. If the door bellow leaks, the front counterweight (usually a concrete block) will begin to get wet and drip. This could also be an indication of the bellow clamp around the wash tub being loose. If the leak starts to pool under the washer and run out the front, this is usually an indication of a drain pump leak or drain line leak. Please inspect the washer with the panel removed and the washer on a load and post back and let me know. Go to my profile and use the "Ask Me" feature for a quicker response. I hope this helps you.

PS One other item. On the left hand side of the door bellow is the a dispenser tube that penetrates through the bellow and allows water to enter the wash tub. Sometimes the dispenser tube is not seated all the way into the rubber (should be seated past the flange) and it will dispense water behind the rubber instead of into the wash tub. Just something else to consider...
