Question about Samsung 3.5 cu. ft. High Efficiency VRT Front Load Washer

Open Question

Is there a quick home-fix for a small crack in the door boot/gasket? The crack is at the bottom and it leaks water.

I have tried electrical tape, a piece of rubber weather stripping, foam weather stripping and vinyl tape. I have run out of ideas. At this time replacement is not an option I can choose.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

without being able to inspect the warp, I will have to say no. if it was cracked or torn, you could make a temp repair. but in the long run. the gasket has to be replaced, and it not a easy task.

You really should have a experienced service person, look at the warp to figure out why it happened.
The door gasket is not cheap. and you may another issue, for why it was warped.

How can I fix my Frigidaire PLD4375RFC Dishwasher that leaks from bottom door even after new door gaskets 154576501 and 154701001.


It sounds like you are fixing the wrong area. If water is coming down between the inner and outer door panel and following the wiring harness, the leak is inside the door. Either from the soap cup mounting or the rinse agent area which I think is the same unit on your model. There is a gasket behind that part. Also check the inner door if its plastic for any possible cracks.

Step 1:
Remove the service panel that runs along the front of the dishwasher just below the door. If it is screwed in place, remove the screws with a screwdriver. If the panel hangs on hooks, pull the panel out and swing it up to remove it from the hooks.
Step 2:
Check the end of the drain hose that connects to the dishwasher. If it's leaking, tighten the clamp with a screwdriver.
Step 3:
Check the drain hose connection to the kitchen sink drain. Again, if it's leaking, tighten the clamp with a screwdriver.
Step 4:
221_a1.jpg Check for leaks around the water-inlet valve. If necessary, use an adjustable wrench to tighten the compression fitting that connects the water-supply line to the valve. If the fill hose is leaking, replace the spring clamp that is on the hose with a worm-drive hose clamp. It produces more clamping pressure. Use adjustable pliers to compress the spring clamp so you can pull the clamp and hose off the valve. Remove the spring clamp from the hose. Buy a worm-drive clamp at your hardware store, then install it and tighten it with a screwdriver.

Leveling the machine Step 1:
Remove the front access panel (see step 1, "Tightening the fittings"). This will give you access to the dishwasher's adjustable feet.
Step 2:
Open the door completely and remove the bottom dish rack.
Step 3:
Unscrew the dishwasher from the kitchen countertop so the dishwasher can move freely as you adjust the feet.
Step 4:
Check to see if the dishwasher is level side to side. Place a small level inside the dishwasher so it's sitting on the bottom pan and facing parallel to the front lip of the dishwasher. If the dishwasher is not level, use adjustable pliers to turn one of the dishwasher's front feet up or down until you hit level.
Step 5:
Check to see if the dishwasher is level front to back. Turn the level perpendicular to the door, and place it on one of the bottom ledges that run along the side of the cabinet. Check the level again. If the dishwasher isn't level, use your adjustable pliers to turn the back feet up or down until you hit level.
Step 6:
Reattach the dishwasher to the countertop and reinstall the front access panel.

Fixing a leaking door Step 1:
Inspect the door gasket. As it ages, the gasket can crack or become hard, preventing it from sealing completely.
Step 2:
If the gasket appears solid, adjust the door latch so the door seals tightly. Loosen the screw that holds the door latch to the cabinet. Push the latch in slightly and retighten the screw. Test the door and readjust the latch if necessary.
Step 3:
Replace the gasket if water continues to leak after you've tightened the latch. Most gaskets are held by compression in a groove on the door or on the dishwasher cabinet.
Step 4:
Pull the old gasket out of its groove, using adjustable pliers (see illustration). Take the gasket to an appliance store to get a replacement.
Step 5:
Soak the new gasket in warm water to soften it, then press it into the groove. Start at the top, then work your way down the sides and across the bottom.

I have a LG GRL207QVJA Fridge Freezer and have a leak behind the water dispenser. How do I remove the control panel to get behind it so that I can replace the leaking tube?


Hello Adrian;



My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You must be in the UK. I can not pull up any information on your unit, but I will try and walk you through this.

Hopefully the water leak is directly behind the dispenser. If you have water leaking out the bottom of the door, then you are going to have to replace the whole door. It water is leaking out of the bottom of the door then the insulation in the door is saturated. Over time the water in the door will freeze and crack you door liner open. There is no way to dry the insulation out. So, lets say this is not the case.

You either have a contact pad or a paddle arm in your dispenser housing. You may have a plastic curved piece at the top of the dispenser housing. It is held in by plastic clips. Squeeze this on both sides to release.

Up plug the refrigerator. Their are electrical components behind this housing. On the bottom of the housing frame are 2 small slots. With a flat head screw driver, pop the bottom of the housing out. On the sides and top of the frame are plastic clips. Push in on the sides of the frame to release. If you have a control board on the top back of the frame - remove the connectors. They are idiot proof. Each connector is designed to only fit a special plug. Set the frame assembly aside. You may have to remove a control board fixed to the housing, A contact switch housing and the housing itself. There are screws that go around the housing frame for removal.

On the bottom of the door there is a spring and a tubing connector. Push in on the end of the connector to release the tubing. You may have to remove a black locking ring on the connector first.

The tubing assembly you are replacing is available as a part.

Here is the hard part. Using a good adhesive tape, tape the top end of the new tubing to the bottom of the old tubing. Feed the tubing up from the bottom.

If you do not have slots on the bottom of the frame, you must push inward on the frame to release the frame from it plastic retaining clips.

When I start the washer, it fills just fine with no problems but once it starts the cycle, it gushes water from the bottom of the door


Check the bottom of the plastic inner door. If there is a crack or a gouge, have it replaced. Also check the rubber door boot for holes above the water line

My culligan 30 good water system leaks--i have turned it off because of the mess--i would like to fix it and can i do this outside of the kitchen so i don't have to clean up so much water


Your question is difficult to answer until you determine where it is leaking. Some common places to check are inlet and outlet ports,are fittings going into these tight enough, are they to tight and have cracked the housing on filter . Is there rust or other debris lodged in pressure relief valve.Is it leaking on gasket.
I'm not trying to avoid your question I just need more info. If it's leaking around inlet or outlet ports then you can take these apart if they installed a union. If so then you can remove fittings and tape with several wraps of teflon tape and use pipe joint compound also if you like. If copper or brass fittings were used for installation they may have cracked the housing where they screw into. Sometime you can't see hairline cracks unless fittigs are installed.If it is leaking around base gasket you can remove filter housing and clean gasket and both sealing surfaces. Sometimes a small amount of faucet grease or petroleum jelly on the gasket will help it seal
If it's leaking out of pressure relief you will need to remove filter top and wash out with clean water to clear any rust or mineral particles.
Sorry I can't be more specific but I hope this helps some and if there is anything else I can do let me know. Thank you

Water at the bottom of frig inside under crisper draws.checked door gasket it is fine cant see where water is comming from . any ideas


1. Check that the doors shut correctly. Hold each door about halfway open, then let go. If the doors don't shut completely, adjust the screw legs on the front of the refrigerator so the unit tilts back a bit. With adjustable pliers, turn each leg one revolution clockwise. Recheck the doors and, if necessary, repeat the process until they shut securely.
2. Step 2 Inspect the door gaskets. Look for debris that may keep the doors from shutting. Also check for cracks or gaps in the gaskets that could allow the cold air to seep out. If you find debris, clean the gaskets with warm, soapy water. If you find cracks or gaps, you'll need to replace the gaskets
3. Step 3 If your refrigerator is equipped with a door-frame heater that evaporates condensation, make sure the heater is turned on. The switch should be located with your other refrigerator controls.

KitchenAid Dishwasher Leaking from under Door


I had a similar problem with a KUDM25SHWH1 dishwasher. Rubber seal looked fine. I found an incredible tip on another fixi it site. One possible problem iss the pump cover screws may have worked loose and is squirting water directly on the door seal. Man that was it! I saw a couple of looses screws and a small portion of the pump cover gasket showing. I loosened the pump top, reset the gasket tightened it all down...no leaks! The pump I refer to is located directly below the spray arm inside the washer. Easy to get to. Another tip was to look for a split sspray arrm that may spray water directly into the door seal.
