Question about LG 24 in. LDS 5811 Built-in Dishwasher
Repair guy put new vent tube in and soap dispenser, yet I still have a leak. What causes this? How do I fix it.
This is being caused by the vent tube design. The lower fitting is pushed up into the upper fitting so water leaks out from the top. The fittings are designed backwards. Remove front door panel and their will be a white tube running down the side. That tube is pushed up into its mate. Pull it down and silacone calk all around the out side of that pieces and the inside of the upper piece. put them back together and then tape it with some duck tape. DO NOT US FOR AT LEAST 24 hrs.

Tips for a great answer:
(1) Condensate drip pan under the refrigerator (catches & evaporates water from defrost cycles) may be out of place or leaking.
(2) Drip Tray under water/ice dispenser may be overflowing (drain may be clogged, if so equipped).
(3) Leaking water supply line (to ice maker/water dispenser): Check:
(a) at inlet-valve fitting(s) and along all tubing going to ice maker & water dispenser,
(b) at water filter connections (check inlet & outlet fittings and any gaskets where filter is inserted,
>>> Tubing can develop a pinhole leak or crack if bent too sharply, pinched when unit is pushed back against a wall, contacting hot or vibrating parts (e.g. compressor or fan),
>>> If connections are the "push-on" style they can leak if the tubing is not cut off squarely - with no burrs, pinched, cracked or distorted ends (use a sharp knife or tubing cutter)
>>> If compression fittings are used with polyethylene tubing a ferrule must be inserted into the tubing end to prevent the tubing from distorting as the nut is tightened; also over-tightening nuts or reusing old compression rings under the nuts may cause leaks.
* Remember to vacuum out the dust bunnies from the fan, condenser coils and all air vents while you're poking around under the fridge!
