Water coming out of the front door of the dishwasher

I just installed a new dishwasher and all of the connectors are correct, I have power and the water supply is working and not leaking, the water drain hose is secure and is not leaking but when I start the dishwasher after the first cycle water starts to come out of the front door and I have had to shut it down. Do I need to call someone for service since I just received this dishwasher yesterday or is there something I could do.

Thank You For Your Help

    Same problem, no packing stuck in door. It only leaks when the spray bars are rotating and spraying. If you look along the bottom edge of the door there is a small rubber seal but it only runs part ways accross the door then there is a gap of about 4 inches, then it starts again and runs to the other side. What's up with that? Why the gap?

Read the installation instructions and make SURE that you have removed all of the packing material from inside and around the door. If you had the bottom apron off to hook it up, some insulation may have poked up into where the bottom of the door seals. Inspect the area that the door seals really carefully - you often can't see the bottom of the bachine side, due to how the door bottom catches drips, but if there's something that is sticking up into the lip when the door closes, that can give you problems. If you can take the bottom skirt off and run the machine, you may be able to see where the problem is coming from. Good Luck! Jim

Just installed a new dishwasher. It will not fill with water. Power on, water on, overfill valve moves free. Water does not go in unit @ all. I can hear pump run.


Hello Tony, I appreciate your inquiry!
I see that your Frigidaire dishwasher is not filling with water and it has just recently been installed. Is your door shut tightly? Also, are there error codes or lights being displayed on the control panel? I would suggest reading back through your installation guide to make sure all the steps were correct. If you continue to have issues with your dishwasher I would recommend reaching out to your manufacturer for proper warranty procedures. -Matt

Won't Fill and will attempt to run wash cycle when turned off and door is closed


Hello ddux97 - I understand your dishwasher has power but will not fill with water. Here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you resolve this issue:

• Make sure water supply is turned on. (First check for shut off valve under the kitchen sink).

• Check the house circuit breaker or fuse box, reset circuit breaker or replace fuse.

• Check inlet hose and make sure it's not twisted.

• Does float overfill protector (mushroom shaped object in tub) move freely? This is located in the bottom left front corner of the dishwasher.

• If this is a new install, then make sure the unit is not pressed up against the cabinet and the fill tube is not squeezed closed.

• Make sure the electrical wires going to the water inlet valve have not come off. It is best to turn off power to the dishwasher before reconnect wires, it doesn't matter which terminal is off both need to be connected.

• Make sure the drain hose is installed correctly. If the drain hose is routed under the floor as the dishwasher fills water can be drawn from the tub and appear to have never filled.

• Some models of Frigidaire dishwashers use a water pressure switch that will shut off the water valve if the tub over fills. These models do not have floats.

I hope these troubleshooting tips help you in some small way.

Don't understand the incomprehensible door and general installation instructions for the aqua star. Just uses pictures, anywhere available that uses WORDS?


Hello,
  • 1 what you'll need
    Electric drill and hole cutting bit
    Screwdrivers
    Pliers
    Adjustable wrench
    Level
    Teflon pipe tape
    Drain pipe for dishwasher
    Dishwasher connection kit - available at your home store (should contain water supply line for dishwasher as well as necessary connectors and compression couplers).
    New dishwasher

  • 2Determine that you have access to the hot water supply line, the drainpipe and an electrical connection under the sink. Installing the dishwasher will require extending the hot water supply line to the dishwasher, connecting the dishwasher drain to the drainpipe under the sink, and plugging the dishwasher in. If your home was not plumbed in anticipation of a dishwasher, you will need to change some fittings under the sink to make these connections possible. (See below)
  • 3Read the instruction manual that comes with your new dishwasher. Installing a dishwasher is straightforward but you want to be sure you understand and are comfortable with the necessary steps.

    Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.I would start by removing the outer door panel remove the screws around the inner door to do this.Then close the door and start a cycle. Sometimes you can see obvious signs of leaks just by removing the panel too. But if not let it run and see if you see water leaking anywhere. You will see water in the bottom corners its normal. If water is splashing over those corners the check the lower spray arm gor damage or cracks it can cause this problem also make sure the screws under the spray arm are tight. also check the upper arm.

    Problem with the air flow water cime out


    There is a ventilator mechanism on the top right corner, behind the control panel / front cover.

    ******TURN THE POWER OFF AT THE BREAKER BEFORE STARTING, BE SURE POWER IS OFF ******

    Open the door; remove all of the screws that hold just the front panel (not the controls panel). These screws are located on the inside of the door, around the outer edges. The front door panel will be able to be removed. Close the door with the front panel removed.

    ***IMPORTANT be sure nobody will come in contact with the exposed wiring (especially little kids) *********

    Turn back on the breaker, turn on the washer, and run a quick rinse cycle. See where the water is coming from.

    On my washer (same model) i had to replace the entire vent kit (sears parts ~$40.00) Call them with your model and serial number, or search online. Removal and replacement was very easy, and it did fix my leaking problem. Checked with the front door panel off and a quick rinse before I TURNED POWER BACK OFF and put the front cover back on.

    Root cause?? From what I can tell, the solenoid stopper hardens over time, which allows for water from the spray arms to leak past.

    Get it fixed now before you smoke the motor or control card. My part number was ABT35083501 be sure to double check model before purchasing.

    Good luck!

    Hi


    Thanks for using FixYa. If you have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using a detergent that is causing too much suds. Cut back on the amount of detergent you use, and see if that makes a difference.

    Water that spills through the door vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment. you should check the main tub seal, the door latch, the door gasket, the water-inlet valve, and the fill and drain hoses.

    Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).

    Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses. The pump seal may be defective, too; replacing this is a job for an appliance repairperson.

    An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.


    Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

The pump seal may be defective, too; replacing this is a job for an appliance repair person. The door seals on this Kitchenaid dishwasher are pressure fit into a metal channel that runs along the inside of the wash tub.


    To install, simply remove the old seal paying close attention to which way it was installed, apply a bead of adhesive inside the channel, then install the new seal in the correct direction. A test fit prior to applying the adhesive is a good idea and if you are having trouble with one side being to long, try folding the seal in half, take hold of the looped end, and insert it under the door latch. The reset should go in properly. The new seal will be a tight fit which is the way we want it so it may take some force to get it fully seated. If the door is hard to close, then the door seal needs some more work.

    An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.

    you must prime all new installs on dishwashers. this means you must put about a gallon of water in the unit on the first wash.pour a gallon of water inside the dishwasher on the bottom ,close the door and run as normal.water will start to come into unit.good luck with your project.

    LG Dishwasher redepositing debris back onto dishes


    Have had a problem with our LG 5811 Dishwasher not operating.
    I have found the Vent Hole Cover located inside the Door was not installed correctly. I used plumber putty between the plastic fitting and the inside face of the Door and turned the Cover fully to lock in place (vent hole is toward Door bottom). Water was leaking previously from this opening over the wires in the door.

    Another problem was the lower Door Seal (under the Door) it was not installed correctly either. It was actually too long and would not seal against the bottom of the inclosure. Water was coming out and spraying the wires in the door. I had to remove the metal stiffener over the front of the Dishwasher to get to the Door Seal. I removed one end and reinstalled the seal. The Seal laid flat but was approximately 3/16" to long. I cut off the end with a sharp knife - seems to be the correct length now.
