being in the uk i dont know this appliance, but the fault is probably that it is overfilling caused by crap in the airchamber or the hose leading to the pressure stat blocked or a split in this hose

SOURCE: Leaking at the bottom of a GE dishwasher

If it's under a year old, it's under warranty, just call 1-800-GECARES and they'll send someone out to replace the door gasket. If it is over a year old, you need to replace the door gasket. There are small black lines that extend beneath the door into the body of the dishwasher that will be replaced when you install the new gasket. This will seal the door so that you no longer have anymore leaks.

Does not drain properly . It leaks through the door.


The leaks through the door problem is caused by an overfilled tub. Remember, these dishwashers aren't bath tubs. Those seals are only designed to keep water from splashing out, not for completely filling the dishwasher with water. These problems are both caused by the slow drain, and can usually be fixed quite easily by removing and cleaning the strainer screen and using a wet/dry shop vacuum to **** out the debris underneath. If your shopvac is powerful enough it will also clean out the water pump.
Replace the screen and try again.

My dishwasher is leaking water from the front door


The water inlet level setting could be faulty and thus "overfills" the washer with water. The water level is senced via a plastic tube feeding an ajustable switch. Sometimes the plastic pressur sence pipe gets clogged and water level is then not correct. The switch can have burnt contacts and might need replacing.

I have ge dishwasher thats 3 years old and I'm having problems with it leaking from the bottom of the door. I replaced the seal once but I can't tell what else the problem could be. Any suggestions?


it could be overfilling. check the overflow float inside. if it is stuck down, the water level will get to high. the seal is not meant to be under water. it just stops splashing water. if it moves freely, it is okay.

Rust ruining door at lower corners of ice/water dispenser.


when you dispense ice or water, you are allowing the drip tray to overfill and the water builds underneath the tray until the water reaches the point were it will leak down the front of the door. the water will rust the panel beyond repair. you will have to replace the whole door at this point. hope this helps.

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.

Dishwasher leaking on florr


Hi.
It could be:
a dirty door seal
a clogged pipe on the pressure sensor causing it to overfill
a genuine leaking hose

Much depends on where it is leaking from. The door seals can be cleaned with a detergent laden cloth, hard grime removed with a plastic scouring pad or a blunt knife (with care)
A clogged sensor pipe needs to be removed and cleaned out - access will most likely be from beneath. While you are there you can check the hoses for leaks too!

As a starting point I would put a kettle or two of very hot water and a generous dose of detergent into the machine and try to let it clean itself. While it is doing that try to spot where the leak is. There may not be one if it was overfilling.

I hope this helps.

If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills. If they do not, please add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D
