Bosch SHU4322 Dishwasher leaks in the door

Only once every few weeks we get a lot of water leaking from the door. Oddly, it is dripping down from the outside skin of the door from the soaked acoustic insulation.

I've taken the door apart and just do not see the problem. The fact that it only happens once every few weeks is also puzzling.

    Same problem, but has just happened once. A good bit of water was pooled in the base of the dishwasher (inside), and I believe the sheer level of the water may have defeated the gasket along the base of the door. The insulation along the bottom of the door is wet. The subflooring underneath the dishwasher base is also wet, but I suspect that this simply ran in from the door area. I'm currently letting the floor dry so I can run the diswasher and confirm the source(s) of the leak(s).



    At times we notice what we consider excessive water inside the dishwasher after a cycle, but this is the first leak. I can drain most of the water by using the cancel-and-drain option on the front panel. Is the real problem the gasket seal, or the presence of too much water during a wash or rinse-and-hold cycle which would overwhelm even a perfectly good lower door gasket?

Bosch Dishwasher drain mechanism starts itself a few hours after a completed cycle and won't stop. I reset the dishwasher, but it remains unusable for a few days. If I turn on the dishwasher, th


this could mean there is water leak and it collects at the base of the dishwasher leading to moisture detection circuit tripping. when you leave it for a few days the water dries up and trip is removed. check door seals for leak most likely at the base of the door. turn power off when working on dishwasher.

Dishwasher began leaking underneath when turned on. Humming as if trying to start, but nothing further exept water on floor


I don't know how old this dishwasher is but the symptom your describing sounds like the ceramic water seal on the bottom of the impeller assy but above the motor has failed. When the seal fails it allows water to run though the motor and then the bearings in the motor fail. Once water starts running though a dishwasher motor they are pretty much shot. The reason for this is that the leak starts out slow and it leaks for a long period before you ever see the water under the dishwasher. So by the time you see the leak water has been going through the pump / motor assy for weeks or months. By that time the service technicians only option is to replace the motor pump assy.

Bosch SHU4302 DW has a leak in the bottom left. I cleaned the gasket etc. but no luck. Slow leak drip by drip in the wash cycle. This model does not seem to have the steam vent that other Bosch models...


I've got a 4306, and while it never leaked, the bottom door gasket did seem to chemically melt over the years.

I replaced it a few months ago. I don't know that a steam vent is needed as the gasketing system never allows any steam pressure to build. And, if anything, in general, the gaskets are in worse shape now than when the dishwasher was new, so leakage due to steam pressure would have been greater when new.

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

Maytag Jet Clean leaking through right side of door during rinse


It is important to examine the leak to see where it probably originates.

If the water is leaking from the right hand side of the door on your dishwasher, it is time to replace the gasket that seals the door when the door is latched.

Bosch sgs5312gb leak


More than the door seal, check the water level is not stuck down or sinking. If the appliance is leaking from the door, this is often because of overfilling. If the machine is not overfilling, then replace the door seal.

Door leak


I had the same problem. On the right side of the tank in Bosch dishwashers there is a steam port. If you place a large object in the right hand edge of the tray, a pressure build up causes the leak. Put large stuff on the left and you should be good to go!

Good luck.

Leaking from the door


This has happened to us a few times. There is a gasket inside the door for a solenoid that operates the flap that opens to let dishwasher detergent out. The gasket went bad and water leaked through.

The only thing to do is replace the gasket. It's a $8 part. (A lot for a 1 inch square gasket!) They seem to last about 2-3 years.
