LG LD12AW2 leaking

I have an LG LD-12AW2 Which is leaking from the left hand bottom corner of the door. It seems to me that the dishwasher is filling up with far too much water. It starts to leak quite bad after only a minute or two.

Re: LG LD12AW2 leaking

The fill switch may be contaminated with soap or debris that makes it heavier and makes it float lower in the water which means more water is required to trip it. Try moving it manually and see if it is hard to move at the top of its travel.

LG LD12AW2 Dishwasher overflowing

On the LG LD-12AW2 model, there is a float assembly just behind the wall where the water inlet port is located inside the unit.
When that float (or the micro-switch inside it) fails, water will continue to flow in without stopping . That causes the overflowing.
Post back here if you are looking for more specific guidance.
Good Luck!

Water leaking out of bottom of door

There is a rubber seal that runs along the bottom of the door. If you carefully run your hand along there just to see if it is all even. Sometimes they get out of place and you can push it back and then closing the door it realigns itself and all is good. If the seal is damaged, you have to replace the door liner as the seal is attached.
