Question about Frigidaire PLD4375RFC Dishwasher

1 Answer

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

Our 6 year old Frigidaire aka Electrolux (Model #: PLD4375RFC) dishwasher was leaking from the bottom of the door all over the place. I searched the net, and most of the answers recommend replacing the bottom door seal. The float does click when I pull up on it, and I don't see any cracks or obvious holes in either of the upper or lower spray arms. So I removed the door gasket, and it was a little worn at the edges, and corroded with deposits. I also removed the splash guards at the bottom of the door corners, and noticed they were split in half. I've already replaced the bottom door seal gasket (OEM Part: 154576501) AND the side flaps splash shields / guards (OEM Part #: 154701001), however it's STILL leaking. I think replacing the three gaskets helped a little, but now it's leaking mostly at the center intermittently depending on what it's doing. So I ran it again, and took off the kick plate and looked under it. It appears to be leaking from the hole where the electrical connector goes up the middle of the door in between some white Styrofoam. I took some videos. See below. You'll notice it's leaking a lot from that hole in the time-code 0:00-0:55, but right about 0:56 the machine changes it's tune and goes through another cycle of some sort and it stops ... https://youtu.be/ZKEkBN7I1SE In this clip a little later on, it changes it's tune again and goes through some other cycle or thing and the leak starts back up again at 0:12... https://youtu.be/ZPdBqa8iRMQ I have not replaced the tub gasket yet, but I don't want to throw unnecessary time and money at this thing if someone can identify this for sure, and send me a link to the correct part?

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.

I have a Frigidaire Gallaxy Series top loading washing machine, 4 years old that seems to be leaking from the bottom. Is this something I can fix myself? THANK YOU.


Before you buy a new $100 door gasket, pull out the soap dispenser tray and look inside the washer where it normally sits. If there is significant soap accumulation (even 3/8 inch), the water can become backed up and trickle down the washer front to the door bottom, making it look like a door leak. Fixed mine this way.

Frigidaire GLD2445RFS0 dishwasher has developed a door leak


Make sure the lower spray arm ends (there are 3 arms) are snapped together all the way. One of ours had come apart and was spraying water out the end of the one arm. It was enough to "spurt" water past the plastic gasket at the bottom of the door. I snapped the arm back together and BINGO. Free fix.

The dishwasher leaks through the front door. A gasket problem?


yes, this is an issue with this manufacturer.
you must remove the inner & outer door assembly.
the lower front tub has a front lip, the lip must be reformmed towards the rear,
then a seal that attatches to the inner door panel at the bottom must be replaced as its also
malformmed.
this fix works all the time.
*also remember dont use more than a teaspoon of gel or a tablespoon of powder
as this will cause too much suds and will spill over & out thue the front bottom of door.
