Kitchenaid dishwasher lower door seal

I purchased a new lower door seal and snapped it onto the bottom of the door. It keeps falling off when I shut the door. When I removed the old seal it was stuck on really tight as if it had been glued on. Is there something I need to apply to the door or the seal to attach it to the bottom of the door?The part did not include any instructions for installation.
The seal came with 2 clips - which I did not replace since the old ones looked fine.
Hope you can help.
Thank you

Door falls down


Sandra,

You need a door link balance kit for your dishwasher door. It is part number 8194001. Google it and you will see what it is. You can get it at Sears brand central or ebay or any online appliance parts supply store. You will have to slide your dishwasher out a little to replace them. Look along the bottom edges of the right and left side of the dishwasher and you will find that one of the balance link "strings" has snapped. Yes......they use nylon string and not wire cable. Remove the bottom front black toekick panel as well. Very simple job once you gain access to the lower sides of the dishwasher. Suggest replacing both at the same time as if one broke, the other isn't far behind. Hope this helps.

Leaking from motor


Water Inlet Valve

If the dishwasher is leaking water the water inlet valve might be defective. If the water inlet valve sticks open, it will allow water to fill the dishwasher continuously. Some customers report that they see clean water filling the bottom of the dishwasher after it's been sitting all night or for a couple of days. If this happens, turn off the water that is supplying the dishwasher. This is normally a valve under the kitchen sink. Then, replace the water inlet valve, it cannot be repaired. The water valve needs at least 20 lbs pressure to shut off properly. If your water pressure is to low replacing the valve may not solve the problem.

Center Wash Arm Assembly

If the dishwasher is leaking water, the center wash arm assembly might be cracked or split. This can allow a jet of water to spray toward the door seal, causing a leak. If a crack or split in the center wash arm assembly is found, replace it. There isn't any glue that will hold the part together inside the dishwasher.

Lower Wash Arm Assembly

If the dishwasher is leaking water the lower wash arm assembly might be defective. If the lower wash arm has a crack or split on the end, it can force water to spray directly toward the lower part of the dishwasher door. Then, the water can be forced under the door and onto the floor. Check the lower wash arm for any cracks or splits and replace it if necessary. Also make sure the screws are tight in the wash arm support. If the screws are loose, water can spray out the side of the pump and cause a leak.

Upper Wash Arm Assembly

If the upper wash arm assembly is broken or cracked it can cause water to spray very forcefully toward the seams of the door, causing a leak.

Door Seal

Every dishwasher door has a door seal. If the dishwasher is leaking water, it might be that the door seal is defective or worn out. Try closing the dishwasher door on a dollar bill and see if the door seal is making good contact all the way around the door. If not, replace the door seal. If the door seal is good or has been replaced and there is still a leak check the door hinges. If the hinges are bent the door will not close properly and the hinges will need to be replaced.

I have a Kitchen Aid model#KUDS25SHBL1 and it leaks through the bottom of the door. What is the cause and how do I fix it?


Hi,

There are two things that could cause this issue. The first and most common is a cracked feed tube. The feed tube is the plastic pipe that sits under the upper rack and feeds water to the middle spray arm. If this tube breaks or cracks it shoots water directly down toward the front of the door and leaks occur. The part number for a new tube is 3378144

The second thing it could be is the lower door seal, it clips onto the inner door liner at the bottom. It is part number4172127

The dishwasher door keeps popping open


I have the same problem and it appears that everyone else who has replaced the door seal runs in top this issue. This is a new seal design that is different from the original. This new seal is obviously poorly designed is placing too much pressure on the door causing it to either not close, or open mid cycle. I am presently duck taping the door closed when running the machine in the hope that the heat cycling the new seal will eventually cause it to deform and relieve the pressure. I see that other have attempted to help the process by increasing the release pressure on the latch. This will be the last Kitchenaid large appliance I purchase.

My Kitchenaid dishwasher not cleaning dishes on top shelf


You need to clean the jets on the machine arm with an old toothbrush etc... then clean out the debris filter on the bottom of the tub near the dryer bar. The calcification in the little jet areas causes this problem. This should help.

Door still leaks after replacing bottom seal


the bottom seal isn't actually a seal, rather it serves as a splashguard. I had the same problem with the same model and started by replacing what I thought was a seal located at the bottom of the door.
Check if the screws on the top half of the pump (located under the lower spray arm which needs removed first) have become loose. The screws were barely in the threads which caused a stream of water towards the door and leaked between the splashguard and bottom edge of the tub and onto the floor.0d084cc.jpg

I have a Kitchenaid KUDS25SHBL1 dishwasher that is leaking from the bottom of the door. I replaced the main gasket around the body that the door seals against, and it is still leaking.


Have you removed the outer door to check if the leak is coming from inside the door . also check the bottom door seal ? also check the around the soap dispenser as I have had to silicone around them to keep them from leaking before..let me know if this helps at all.

Kitchaide Dishwash Door


There is normally 2 heavy springs & cables that control the "falling" of the door located in the bottom of the machine or it the door itself. Sounds like one (or both) have snapped.
