Question about Frigidaire 24 in. PLD3465REC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

2-yr old unit is leaking

The unit is leaking from under the bottom of the front door. It appears to happen during later stages of the normal wash cycle (the only cycle I use) not during initial operation. Gasket problem? Maybe the water discharge opening is clogged? Any ideas?

I had this problem with similiar model, the extended warranty company was out several times, replaced gaskets and many other parts. Still had the problem. The last tech replaced the upper washing arm that hangs below the upper rack, He said there was a defect where water shoots out between the mfg welded seam and shoots water at the door in the right spot to make it leak. He replaced it and haven't had the problem for about 8 months.

Leaking water from the front of machine,


The water level in a front loader should always be below the door line so consequently it should not be possible for water to leak out the door unless there is a problem with the actual door seal itself.

However if you are using too much, or incorrect type of detergent, the washer may be producing too much suds. Too much suds can cause door to leak.
Other causes of a leak which appears to be coming from the front but is on fact coming from elsewhere: Check the water inlet hoses. Check the drain hose. Check the standpipe (upright drain pipe used instead of a sink), or the wash sink connections. These will often be the actual source of a leak. When they leak the water can roll under the washing machine and appear at the front.

Also check this link for a good description of how to troubleshoot leaks happening at various stages during the cycle.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

It sounds like you have a leak somewhere around the door bellow. This is the rubber boot that seals the wash tub to the door frame. Pull the folds back and inspect around the entire perimeter of the rubber. You could have a small rip or tear somewhere. There are a series of small holes in the bottom of the bellow that are supposed to be there. This is the allow any standing water to drain back into the wash tub. If you cannot find any obvious signs of leaks, remove the lower panel under the door. This is accomplished by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then off. Start the washer on a normal wash and watch for any leaks. If the door bellow leaks, the front counterweight (usually a concrete block) will begin to get wet and drip. This could also be an indication of the bellow clamp around the wash tub being loose. If the leak starts to pool under the washer and run out the front, this is usually an indication of a drain pump leak or drain line leak. Please inspect the washer with the panel removed and the washer on a load and post back and let me know. Go to my profile and use the "Ask Me" feature for a quicker response. I hope this helps you.

PS One other item. On the left hand side of the door bellow is the a dispenser tube that penetrates through the bellow and allows water to enter the wash tub. Sometimes the dispenser tube is not seated all the way into the rubber (should be seated past the flange) and it will dispense water behind the rubber instead of into the wash tub. Just something else to consider...

Washing machine wm1814cw

Check the wire ring that goes around the rubber seal located just inside the door - we had to call a repair person out one day because our door was leaking, and he told us it's important that the spring be at the top of the door opening to prevent leaks from happening. He had a hard time moving the spring to the top but that seemed to help.

A few months later we found a water leak from our soap tray, so we had the tray replaced under warranty, although I'm not sure that helped because the replacement looked identical to the old one. It only leaked when we used powdered Oxyclean and liquid soap in the tray at the same time; the leaking water ran behind the front cover and dripped out onto the floor all along the front of the machine, mostly near the left corner, but we stopped putting Oxyclean into the tray & the problem stopped. Hope that helps.

This can be caused by water collecting in the door to tub seal. Best repair would be to replace the door seal.
