My dishwasher is leaking at the bottom corners of the door

I installed the unit myself and it has worked fine for many months but now it's starting to leak.  I ran it with no dishes in it and it is still leaking.  I can't find the owners manual but I recall it mentioning something about the unit must be level or the doors will leak. 


What advice can you give me to help solve this leaking problem?

    Mine leaks a few drops during the wash/rinse cycle. I adjusted the gaskets on each side, and now the left side doesn't leak. I plan to adjust the right side some more and see if that fixes the problem. If not, I'll be researching the referenced repair kit by the previous person.

    Leaking intermittently from bottom corners of door. It didn't leak all the time, so I assumed it was an adjustment. Wrong!

    It is a small wiper gasket, part # 154576501 at the bottom of the door that prevents splash from exiting the TUB extension underneath the door.

    It inserts into the bottom of the door, notch on the right side when facing the door.

    Check also for a small tie-wrap under the front door panel interfereing with the wiper gasket.

    Remmember to remove electric power before sevising.

Mine is doing the same thing and I just bought it three days ago.  I call the store's tech department and they tell me the unit I bought has a service bulletin on regarding leaking at the bottom of the door.  They apparently have a repair kit for the problem.

Samsung mold issues dishwasher DMT400

Unfortunatly there is nothing you can do except clean it out every couple days, the way it's designed the water sits there after a wash and has nowhere to go so it just festers and molds over time, I put myself on a regiment to clean it out once a week. It sucks but that's all you can do.

I have a kitchenaid dishwasher model KUDMOITJBLO installed as new unit in Oct. 2002 in a new home. Current problem is water coming from front door, bottom as unit starts wash cycle after filling. Leak is...

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.I would start by removing the outer door panel remove the screws around the inner door to do this.Then close the door and start a cycle. Sometimes you can see obvious signs of leaks just by removing the panel too. But if not let it run and see if you see water leaking anywhere. You will see water in the bottom corners its normal. If water is splashing over those corners the check the lower spray arm gor damage or cracks it can cause this problem also make sure the screws under the spray arm are tight. also check the upper arm.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Just installed the dishwasher and it is leaking from the the two front corners of the door

I dont know what brand your dishwasher is, but if it is leaking from the two bottom corners it is not level. If the back is higher than the front, the water will drip out of the bottom corners of the door. Raise the front feet up so that the edge of the door is flush with the cabinet doors from the top to the bottom.

The door bottom is actually NOT sealed. Look into the levelness of the unit, and that you are using the correct soap. Both can cause water to leak by the door.

Look closely at the door alignment and make sure is did not get damaged along the way..

Frigidaire Dishwasher Leaking

I just found a service release number for my Frigidaire dishwasher that says it applies to Serial numbers TH632 through serial number TH737 made in 2007 for a replacement kit for the door seal at the bottom of the door. The bottom door seal has been changed, adding side seals that restrict the water surge from the center spray arm. The part number for the new seal is p/n 154588201. This seal can be replaced without removing the dishwasher or either of the door panels.
The seal is located on the bottom of the inner door panel and appears as a cream colored flexible
rubber blade bonded to a milky white colored plastic strip. To remove and properly install
replacement follow the instructions carefully.
1. Replacing this seal can be accomplished without disconnecting power from the unit.
Always use extra care when electrical power is present while serving an appliance.
2. Open door all the way down and remove lower rack. Set rack aside to a safe location.
3. Locate the seal on the bottom of inner door panel. Facing front of unit, the right side of the
seal can be pulled down slightly to facilitate removal.
4. Pull seal straight into the tub from right side.
5. With seal removed, and before installing replacement seal, locate the channel in inner door
panel that the seal mounts into. Locating this channel before installing the replacement can
make this procedure easier.
6. Place the new seal on a flat surface and measure from the bottom of the seal, (See Figure
1 to determine bottom of seal), up 3/8 "of an inch and place a mark with a pen or marker on
both ends (See Figure 2). If needed, scribe a straight line between these two marks this
will give you a guide when installing seal into the inner door panel.
7. The seal can only be installed one way. The end that holds this seal into the inner door
panel has a ½ inch notch cut in the right side. This notch allows the seal to be installed
around the end of the inner door channel that holds the seal.
8. Line up the seal along the bottom of the inner door panel and start from the right side, push
the seal into the door channel to the line marked in step #6.
9. With seal in place close the door, the tub will align the seal as needed.
10. Reinstall lower rack and operate unit to check for leaks.
If leaks continue to occur at the bottom corners, order Splash shield kit 154701001 for

Before installing the kit remove and reinstall the lower door seal. To install the lower seal make
sure you measure up from the bottom of the seal 3/8 of an inch and mark the seal, do this on
both ends. This locates how far down the seal needs to be before closing the door. Do not
install this seal without measuring it first. After the lower door seal has been re-installed then
install the splash shields according to the instructions accompanying with the kit.
