Rusty water dripping on the inside of the door after rinse cycle

My KithenAid dishwasher is 2 years old. It has started to drip approx a tablesppon of rusty water down the inside of the door after the rinse cycle is done. It drips down the door and collects in the bottom, and because it is there when we go to empty, it has to be dripping out of the door somewhere after the rinse cycle. Any idea where it can be coming from and any suggested repairs?

Check the pump, make sure it is working properly and pumping water out. If it is then check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged.

SOURCE: Drips come from the bottom of the dishwasher

We had the same problem. It appears the door gets "tweaked" when you have a heavy load in the bottom rack or if someone mistakenly places pressure on it. Figure out which side is leaking then bend the door a little in the opposite direction. Worked for us.

I have a Model #DU960 Pwkq1 Whirpool dishwasher leaking


It is probally leaking from the vent assembly, rinse aid or soap dispenser. You will need to remove the door panel. Do this when the dishwasher is dry. Look closely for staining where the water is running down the inside of the door. Replace the gasket. Here is a couple links that should help with this.

Water dripping 1/2 thru wash cycle


I'm just guessing here, but if those spots you mentioned are heater supports and the heaters come on during cycle # 6, then the heat may be deforming the seals so that they leak. It would appear that the fix is to replace those seals, but I would try to build up the outer area with silicon glue (clean the area with rubbing alcohol or acetone first) to see if it would hold the water first. It could be a fairly extensive process to replace the seals (if you can still buy them!). Hope this helps some!

Water drips from under door. the water is


There is a ventilator mechanism on the top right corner, behind the control panel / front cover.

******TURN THE POWER OFF AT THE BREAKER BEFORE STARTING, BE SURE POWER IS OFF ******

Open the door; remove all of the screws that hold just the front panel (not the controls panel). These screws are located on the inside of the door, around the outer edges. The front door panel will be able to be removed. Close the door with the front panel removed.

***IMPORTANT be sure nobody will come in contact with the exposed wiring (especially little kids) *********

Turn back on the breaker, turn on the washer, and run a quick rinse cycle. See where the water is coming from.

On my washer (same model) i had to replace the entire vent kit (sears parts ~$40.00) Call them with your model and serial number, or search online. Removal and replacement was very easy, and it did fix my leaking problem. Checked with the front door panel off and a quick rinse before I TURNED POWER BACK OFF and put the front cover back on.

Root cause?? From what I can tell, the solenoid stopper hardens over time, which allows for water from the spray arms to leak past.

Get it fixed now before you smoke the motor or control card. My part number was ABT35083501 be sure to double check model before purchasing.

Good luck!
