I have a ge dishwasher model GSD5211 purchased in may 2006. Water appears to be dripping from under the front ss panel to the bottom of thepanel. I cannot open it to check the source of the leak. Alo found...


You may want to inspect the seal around the door to make sure it's not worn out or has some foreign material stuck to it causing it to not make a watertight seal during operation. If you don't see any problems there, then you should pull the machine out from under the counter to see if the drain hose has been damaged or dislocated. Most dishwashers are fastened to the bottom side of the counter by two brackets. Open the door to the machine and look at the top where it meets the underside of the counter to see how it is fastened. It's usually just two screws. Once you've removed the screws you should be able to gently slide it out and take a look at the drain hose. You may also want to take note of the condition of the floor below the machine to see if there is any long term water damage that either needs to be fixed or will give you an idea of the location of the source of the problem.

Hope this helps!

Water on floor; problem was occassional, but today was a ''flow''. Coming from left-side back corner and noticable on hot water wash cycle; swithced to warm cycle, went to drip. Suspect whatever the mixing...


Upon further investigation (opening up the front panel & top) could tell it was the injector valve (between the mixing valve and tub inlet). You would think after 21-years they would have designed a more robust solution!! Quick trip to the parts store, back together and working fine.

Thanks for letting me vent.

Is it normal to see steam coming out of the dishwasher in the drying cycle?


Yes, The colder the room its in the more steam you will see. It will look like more steam if sun light is shinning over it. Just like your clothes dryer blowing steam out side. Its just drying.

LG dishwasher is dripping water from vent onto floor


Good that it is working. Recommend you keep a lose eye on the vent on the bottom of the door panel. This model will probably begin leaking again if it has not been retrofit with a kit that LG developed.
Please open a new problem when it starts to leak and please provide the Model and serial number when you do. Good Luck!

Steam coming out near bottom of door causing water to pool


Steam coming out is not normal and you should get it serviced soon. While not dangerous, it probably means that water is leaking inside the door panel from the "Hybrid Drying System" that is a feature which LG uses/touts. Other disheashers use a conventional condensing drying system.
The moist air enters through the internal drying system in the door panel, dry air is added from the outside air with the help of a fan and that air is routed though ducting down to the bottom of the door.
That system is clearly broken. If you have more questions on this, please reply. Good luck!

In the spin cycle water leaks onto the floor,


If the hoses at the back are not leaking, you need to check the drain hose lines, aksi check that the machine is not dripping from the inlet valve hose, or because of a leak from the door gasket.

Door gasket or sealOver 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.
