Question about Dishwashers
I have the above dishwasher purchased in 2002. The rubber gasket on the inter panel comes loose occasionaly and then leaks water, I had it replaced twice, but the heat and suction of the door openning pulls it away unexpectingly. We are in the process of replacing a wood floor now cause by the leaking. Before we put down the new floor, I would like to solved this issue and would not prefer to purchase a new dishwasher just because I can't fix a gasket. Any suggestions?
I have the same model dishwasher with same problem. The gasket first came loose just after my warranty expired. The stainless steel and heat don't make for a good combination with the glue that holds the gasket in. My husband works with caulk and the like. He found a clear gel of some sort to get everything to adhere. It's had to be reapplied. I just make a habit of making sure the gasket is seated in its track and watching if dishes on top rack catch the gasket when I pull rack out.
See www.repairclinic.com, item #1065754, White silicone adhesive, specially formulated for use in the dishwasher to adhere tine tips & door gaskets. It's an accessory for this dishwasher. I don't know if Sears Parts Direct offers it. Sometimes their price is lower.
From above website it costs $14.55
