Question about Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers
HI. I have notice a leak in the right side of the dishwasher near the door. On further examination, I noticed the door was not sitting flush - dropped on the left side and thus not sealing- or closing properly. (nb A peice of tape had solved the closing for quite a while however the leak is new.) Is this an easy fix?
It is sometimes linked to the dishwasher not level or the spring tension on one side getting weak. Refer installation manual http://kitchen.manualsonline.com/mdownloads/c11d2c17-cb0a-489c-99bf-a61513fbf876.pdf to make sure the level is adjusted. May need to replace the door seal in case leak is too excessive.

Pull the seal that is on the tank 1/2 way out then close the door. This will make sure the door is tight to the seal. This happens sometimes that the seal becomes flattened. I have been using this trick on Bosch dishwashers since this series came out in 1997.

I have the same model F&P and just experienced similar problems. My top drawer was leaking due to that "not important" thin white tube. It really sounds like you called a general appliance guy and not a trained F&P repairman. The guy who fixed ours mentioned it provides strain relief for the drain tube & wiring loom when the draw is pulled in & out. So no, it is not crucial to the washer operating, however it may be causing all your problems. On mine, when the draw was pushed in, because this tube was broken it was poking straight in to the top drawer and stopping the lid from sealing causing a FLOOD. Also the flood sensor got wet and had started to corrode and was going to fail soon anyway so it really needed replacing. Additionally, my washer had always "groaned/ R-R-R-R-R-R'd" as it wound down the lids on each compartment. The Fisher & Paykel repairman recommended I get the "kit" for it to fix these issues on both drawers. The kit replaces several parts that have been found to cause common failures over the years. He ordered it and has just been back to install it. It cost nearly $300 all up but I reckon is good value. The machine now works like new, and all of the most likely problems that should eventuate have been addressed. It is now whisper quiet when closing/opening the lid too! The downside is that F&P took 2 weeks to arrive first off, then another 3 weeks before the part arrived. :-( If you decide to overhaul your dishdrawer - you won't recognise it! ( btw - I have no affiliation with F&P either, other than my missus loves her F&P DishDrawer and I love keeping her happy! )

Problem solved - it was not the gasket - it was the vent tube as defined in one of your on-line reported solutions. Thank you!!!

Contact LG @ 1800 243-0000 this is a known issue and they may help you out.
The drying vent needs to be updated if this is a couple years old amoung other items such as the wire harness and inner door liner..
