    Dishwasher is leaking water through the vent on the inside of the door out through the bottom front panel of the door. Seals around the door are fine. Gasket around motor appears to be fine. Not using any new suds. All screws are tight. Float switch appears to be working. It slides up and down effortlessly and I can hear and feel it clicking something. Any ideas? Pics are available at the link below. My apologies for the large file sizes.

    Water drips out the bottom of the front on my dishwasher. i took the front face off and it appears that water is bubbling from the left hand corner into a small trough, but once the trough gets full it bubbles or spurts out onto the floor. Is this normal ? Is there some adjustment on the door or what?, I haven't done anything yet except put a towel down to protect my hardwood floor.

I believe this problem was indeed from using cheap dishwasher powder. After tearing the panels off and checking everything I could think of, I switched to cheap liquid detergent and no more problems. :)

I just got a new whirlpool dishwasher and it is leaking water from under the cabinet when operating. When I took off the small panel on the bottom of the DW I could see a drip coming from above somewhere...


Too much detergent can cause over-sudsing, which causes detergent suds and water to leak out of the door. Whirlpool recommends that you use between 0 and 6 grains per gallon for soft to medium water and between 7 and 12 grains per gallon for medium to hard water. Only use fresh detergent, as old detergent can also cause suds. Keep large pots and pans away from the dishwasher door. Water can bounce off of these items and exit through the seal. Always place dishes in the lower rack to prevent the spray arm from ejecting water right onto the door.

The door gaskets create a seal around your door, preventing water from escaping. If the gaskets are brittle or torn, you must replace them. Clean the gaskets if detergent or food particles are stuck to them. Level the cabinet if the dishwasher is unlevel, which can cause water to squeeze through the door. You can raise or lower the dishwasher feet. Tighten the door latch, if loose. Water temperature above 120 degrees Fahrenheit can also cause leaks. Test the water temperature by running the hot water faucet in your kitchen. Insert a waterproof thermometer into the water. Lower the temperature setting on your hot water heater if too warm.

Your Whirlpool dishwasher can also leak if the tub is filling up with too much water. Check the water inlet valve and the float switch. If either one of these components is stuck, the tub overfills. Replace the component. Examine the water inlet valve if water is dripping from this part. The valve has a tube that goes from it to the dishwasher. Replace the tube if split or punctured.

Your dishwasher has a main tub seal. This seal must stay wet, or it becomes brittle and cracks. Unplug the dishwasher, and remove the spray arm, lower rack and impellers. Replace the seal. You have both inlet and drainage hoses on the rear of your machine. These hoses leak if they are split or not connected properly. Replace any damaged or crushed hoses, and tighten the connections if loose. Verify that the washers inside the hoses are installed properly.

New whirlpool dishwasher when in use drips from right side.

Check if the dishwasher is level side to side and front to back. (you can generally tell if the edge of the tub has an even space between it and the cabinet at top and bottom, and the tub is not further in or out on top or bottom in relation to the edge of the cabinet. Also, make sure the door is not hitting the cabinet edge when you close the dishwasher door.

My whirlpool dishwasher is leaking water from the bottom of door

Water is being forced out under the bottom door seal. Is the lower spray arm melted on the bottom? Or is there something directing the water flow toward the bottom of the tub instead of up toward the dishes?

Door leaks on the floor in front of my dishwasher

1. make sure dishwasher is level front to back and side to side.
2. check the main washer arm (WD22X154) on the bottom side for leaks. If you use heated dry, the heating elements can cause the part of the spray arm directly over it to soften and eventually leak. When water comes out that leak it can spray at the bottom of the door, splashing water inside it and resulting in your leak.
3. if 1 and 2 OK, watch how you load the lower rack. If dishes or a bowl direct water from the lower wash arm to spray against the bottom of the door, especially at the center of the door bottom, the resulting splash inside the door allows water to hit the outer door panel and drip out a one or both corners of the door.
