Frigidaire GLD2445RFS0 dishwasher has developed a door leak

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.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid dishwasher leaking from door

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.

SOURCE: dishwasher leaking around the bottom of the door

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.

It is likely that the door seals on an 8 year old dishwasher could be ready for replacement.

The detergent door won't open while the dishwasher is running through the cycle.. frigidaire GLD2445RFS0


More than likely a faulty dispenser. The wax motor that is used to open the dispenser burns out regularly. Just order a dispenser, remove the 2 phillips screws that hold the front panel on, and you'll see the 6 screws that hold the dispenser in place.

Can't find the model number on Frigidaire dishwasher


The nomenclature should be located on the left side on the inside of the tub right by the front when you open the door. It is most likely an fdb series example fdb1050. however the drain hose pn 154606701 is the factory replacement for most frigidaire dishwashers ten years or less.

Hi linsley.

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: Is there a way to adjust the closure to close the door more?

First lets back up a little . You say it's leaking dishwasher detergent ( during the wash ). Before you do anything else take a look at the type and/or amount of soap you're useing. Have you recently made a change? I have found that the problem is in this somewhere. If you don't find a solution there then consider a local pro. Unless it's old the problem isn't the gasket and the door closure is factory set. If it's still under warranty then it might be time to make a call.

Feel free contact me again!

Leak


hi there,
dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, check these:

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom
of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you.
But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the
entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from
leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher,
remove the:

* Lower rack
*Spray arm
* Spray arm support
* Wash/drain impellers

Then try the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly.
You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the
rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten
or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues
to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the
dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the
leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.
