Question about Frigidaire Dishwashers
My 22 moth old Frigidaire GLD2445RFS0 dishwasher has recently developed a leak at the bottom of the front door. Is there some kind of gasket that requires replacement? Why is this leaking now?
Make sure the lower spray arm ends (there are 3 arms) are snapped together all the way. One of ours had come apart and was spraying water out the end of the one arm. It was enough to "spurt" water past the plastic gasket at the bottom of the door. I snapped the arm back together and BINGO. Free fix.

Check the screws on the pump cover under the lower spray arm (the spray arm is easy to remove, the screws are torx - maybe a torx 10 or 15, so a regular screwdriver wont work). They come loose on ours every 6-12 months and spray water at the door, causing it to leak all over our wood floor. I routinely tighten those screws now before they come loose enough to cause the problem.

I had the same problem in 2004, lots of Bosch trained repair techs, calls to Bosch, and the appliance dealer we purchased it from with no answers. Our kitchen cabinet bases were ruined by the flooding that occured. After months of trying to get help I insisted on speaking to a supervisor that told me it was my fault for putting a flexible cutting board on the right side a blocking the vent. I told her that no where in the manual did it mention this issue and none of their trained techs were aware of this flaw in their design. When I asked about getting my cabinets repaired she said that was not an option. When I mentioned possible legal action her response was "good luck with that". Here it is 2009 and they recently called about a possible fire hazard recall for the control panel. The Bosch trained tech that came out to complete the repair knew nothing about the vent/flooding issue.

Problem solved - it was not the gasket - it was the vent tube as defined in one of your on-line reported solutions. Thank you!!!
