This is commonly caused by a worn door seal. This is a simple repair that requires no tools and can easily be accomplished in a matter of minutes. If you need assistance with parts, or installation instructions, please post back with a brand name and model number so that I may be able to provide you better assistance. I hope this helps you.

    I own a similar model to your dishwasher and had the same problem. I didn't think the door seal was bad, but replaced it anyway. The new seal corrected the problem. Over time, these seals compress to the point where they no longer seal correctly. As water splashes up against the inner door facing it rolls out the bottom of the door instead of staying in the tub. The only other items that can contribute to leaking are:

    1. A dishwasher that is not level, which causes the door not to seal properly.

    2. The inner door panel being warped causing the door facing not to be even for the gasket to seat properly.

    3, Dish placement. If you place large bowls in the front row of the bottom rack it can contribute to water being deflected over the front edge of the tub and out the bottom of the door.

    NOTE: Most dishwashers do not have a seal across the front lip of the tub. That's why it's important to have a good door seal and to load it properly.

    If you've loaded the dishwasher properly and confirmed it is level (front to back and side to side), then here are your options:

    1. Replace the inner door panel (part number 99003678) at a cost of about $115.

    2. Replace the door seal (part number 902894) at a cost of about $40.

    I think I would pursue the cheaper option, first. Let me know what you decide, and if you need further assistance.

Kenmore model #16761691 leaking at the bottom of the door. Where is the gasket located? Or is it another problem?


does it leak all the time or did it just start?try running it with nothing in it and see if it leaks,if the dishes were racked wrong the water can get deflected and leak out through the door,also,remove the bottom rack,look at the screws going around the bottom part under the wash arm,if any of those are loose it causes a wave in the dish washer and the water leaks from under the door.if it's leaking from one of the corners the gasket could be bad

I have a side by side Kenmore refrigerator model #363-9562510. Water leaks from the bottom right corner of the freezer door from a small round cut out hole. This is the door that has the ice and water...


couple of things to check if you have a dispenser on this model there is a hose that goes up into the bottom of the freezer door you need to remove bottom kick plate and take a look at this...also if no water from that hose and its actually coming from the door you could have a ruptured line in the door itself.... next make sure the water is not actually coming from the freezer compartment as the drain in the freezer could be clooged and leaking over on defrost mode and out door...
hope this helps good luck...

Water running out of tube from fridge into bottom of freezer door that leads up to water dispenser ?


Is the water leaking from the bottom of the freezer door ? ( new door ) line is not replaceable inside the door .
Is the water leaking from the tubing at the connector ( about 6" from the bottom of the freezer door ) ( remove both lines from the connector , cut off about 1" of each tube and reinstall into the connector )
To access , remove the kickplate by either removing 1 screw on each side or just pull off ( held on by clips ) .

Water leeks from the bottom of daewoo FRSU20FAI freezer door when dispensing water


There is a joint at the bottom of the door which can be loose and leaking. If it's not leaking there it would be hard to replace the water line in the door.

My whirlpool dishwasher is leaking water from the bottom of door


Water is being forced out under the bottom door seal. Is the lower spray arm melted on the bottom? Or is there something directing the water flow toward the bottom of the tub instead of up toward the dishes?

Water keeps filling up under passenger seat in rear of car


My 2001 passat did the same thing. my leak was coming from the door panel. Open your door and use a water hose to simulate rain water running against your window. Water should run into door and drain out of several drain holes at the very bottom of your door. Check for water leaking from the bottom of your plastic door panel. The water runs down into the door and leaks through your inner door panel seal causing water to leak inside from the bottom of your door panel and run into the floorboard instead of draining out the water hole in the bottom of your door.

Door leaks on the floor in front of my dishwasher


1. make sure dishwasher is level front to back and side to side.
2. check the main washer arm (WD22X154) on the bottom side for leaks. If you use heated dry, the heating elements can cause the part of the spray arm directly over it to soften and eventually leak. When water comes out that leak it can spray at the bottom of the door, splashing water inside it and resulting in your leak.
3. if 1 and 2 OK, watch how you load the lower rack. If dishes or a bowl direct water from the lower wash arm to spray against the bottom of the door, especially at the center of the door bottom, the resulting splash inside the door allows water to hit the outer door panel and drip out a one or both corners of the door.
