If it's under a year old, it's under warranty, just call 1-800-GECARES and they'll send someone out to replace the door gasket. If it is over a year old, you need to replace the door gasket. There are small black lines that extend beneath the door into the body of the dishwasher that will be replaced when you install the new gasket. This will seal the door so that you no longer have anymore leaks.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

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.

My GE dishwasher is leaking out the bottom of the front door. Everything seems to be sealed properly. I took the inside of the door off and couldn't find anything obvious. Is it possible to be overflowing...


You most likly need a new bottom door seal. Usually 3 screws down each side of the door and then two screws hold the bottom door seal in place. The bottm door seal can look fine but if its leaking out the bottom front this is the problem 99 % of the time, Unless someone is using dish soap to preclean the dishes or using regular in the dishwasher.

Leaking on LXIH dishwasher that is level


No. The water level is controlled by two probes inside the back RH corner of the tank. Level the unit with the smallest tilt backwards.

I would closely look at the wash (and rinse arms if equipped). Make sure there is no missing plugs (depends on how old unit is if plugs are used), and that there is no debris inside the wash arm. Debris will cause the water to spray off-line and hit the door seam directly.
