Most dish washers do not seal at the bottom, the door lip just sits
in front of the tub lip and does not make a real tight seal like a refrigerator door, so unless water is spraying out the top and sides of the door,I would assume that it is either overflowing,or you are using the wrong detergent and it is just foaming to much inside the washer and going over the lip and dripping on the floor. Once the suds stop getting agitated then turn back to water and don't look like suds.
So if you watch the washer during the cycle and the water s only coming from the bottom it is the water level switch inside on right
in the front,looks like a mushroom, once the washer reaches a certain level of water this switch floats up and shuts off the water to stop it from filling anymore. If this seems to be the case just remove the front bottom kick panel and you should be able to see the switch, watch it when the washer is filling,you can also push up on the little arm and the water should shut off. Post back with any questions.

Crosley side by side freezer and fridge have ice in bottom


Hello - A dirty, cracked, worn or poorly fitted door gasket can allow warm air to enter the unit causing it to have to run longer to remove the warm air. Leaks in the door seal will cause freezer to run longer in order to maintain desired temperature. Cleaned the gasket, if it is too damage then it will need to be replace. You can check and see if the door seal is bad by, placing a dollar between the gasket and cabinet. Check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing properly. If nothing is stopping the door then replace gasket. Another possibility is an air leak and the cool air is causing the frost buildup. I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately and have them check the coolant system.

Check the door seal. To do this, make sure the door and the rubber gasket is complete dry. Apply a liberal amount of liquid detergent around the rubber gasket. Then close the door. Open the door and look for the liquid detergent to transfer onto the door. If there is a gap, then you will need to replace the door seal.

Sounds like an intake manifold leak. Once the manifold gets hot the gasket leaks. I would check that first and the head gasket second. Are you getting any smoke, hesitation at all?

Leaks under left hand side of door; I've installed 2 new gaskets in last 2 weeks & new float switch; doesn't leak underneath


Check for cracks in the inside liner of the door itself. Seal anything that looks like a potential leak with silicone sealer. I'm providing this advice because you have already eliminated the other possibilities I can think of. If it has a soap dispenser on the door check for leaks around that especially.

hi Replacing the Door Gasket

If water leaks through the dishwasher door, the gasket is probably faulty. Open the door and examine the gasket. It should be soft and resilient. If it's worn, cracked, or hard, it should be replaced. 

Once the gasket is in place, check it for fit against the door frame. It should fit tightly with no cracks or bulges between the gasket and the frame. If necessary, tighten or loosen the retaining screws, or refit the gasket in the clips or the door channel. Then run the machine through a washing sequence and check for leaks. 

If you spot a leak, and the gasket seems to be properly in place, try adjusting the door latch. The trick is to position the gasket against the frame of the door without flattening the gasket or squeezing it too flat when the door is latched properly. Adjust the latch or the gasket until it fits snugly against the door frame.

My ge quietpower 2 dishwasher leaks all over the floor


HI The door of the dryer is sealed with one or more gaskets to keep the hot air in the dryer from escaping and prevent the cool air in the laundry area from being sucked into the dryer. A deteriorated or damaged gasket greatly lowers the efficiency of the dryer. To check the gasket, hold a sheet of tissue paper near the rim of the door while the machine is running. If the door leaks, the paper will flutter. If the gasket or seal leaks, looks worn or warped, has chunks of material missing, or feels hard and nonresilient, it should be replaced with a new gasket of the same type.

Leaking dishwasher


Are you washing cereal bowls or mixing bowls on the bottom rack? If so, are you placing them in front? Sudden leaks that form huge puddles can often be attributed to improper loading of the dishwasher. Most dishwashers don't have a seal across the tub front. The door closes over it and does a pretty good job of deflecting water back inside the wash cavity. However, if you place bowls in the front on the bottom rack rack they can divert the water right over the tub lip and onto the floor. This is usually the culprit that causes most leaks in dishwashers. Now, if you don't think you have a loading problem, remove the kick panel on the bottom of the dishwasher and check the drain line and pump housing for leaks. Check the door gasket for tears or cracks. Lastly, feel inside the bottom of the door with your hand. You should be able to feel the door insulation. If it is wet, then the problem could be a leak around your soap or rinse-aid dispenser. Depending on the model, some dispensers are mounted to the door with a gasket behind it. Sometimes this gasket can form leaks. I hope this helps.
