You may just need to clean the seals or order a new door seal kit which is not to bad to install. It will save you money if you can do this yourself. usally just takes a screw driver/1/4inch nut driver.

Frigidaire frost free upright freezer door corner dripping


Hello Yellow, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire freezer is dripping water out of the corner of the door. It is possible that with your power going out the heat may have caused the gasket to warp. Do you see any frost build-up? The water that is dripping could be coming from condensation within the freezer. I would recommend checking the gasket to see if it is allowing warm air to enter the freezer.

I recommend that you visually inspect the door gasket for defects such as gaps or tears. You can also use a dollar bill to test the door gasket. Place a dollar bill in between the door and the body of the freezer. If the dollar bill pulls out with no to little resistance, you may need to replace the door gasket. A faulty door gasket can allow warm air to enter the compartment and cause frost to condensation or a leak. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Works fine, cleans properly, last couple of times has big puddle of water over floor, seems to be coming from underneath machine. checked filters, hoses etc and all ok. machine is approx. 8 yrs old..


one some models such as kenmore or hotpoint, the door seals go bad (the black rubber things in the corner at the base of the door)
On others such as tappan and frigidaire
the little corner diverters come away from the base (they are semi clear plastic and
attach to the bottom of the dishwasher in each corner near the door).

Also if you have done a lot of dishes by hand the soap may accumulate in the sump of the dishwasher and cause it to oversuds causing soapy water to leak out the front.
If you use regular dish detergent instead of dishwasher detergent, this will occur as well.

Last thing to look at, especially on hotpoint, ge or kenmore is the shaft that enters the
side of the pump which is attached to a triangle shaped piece of plastic. The seal often
fails there and will require pump replacement as it is molded into the case of the unit.

My upright freezer has water coming down from top shelf and creating ice on the drawer fronts


Hello,

In a case like that most likely the door gasket isn't sealing on that corner , a dollor bill placed around door then close it should have some resistiance when pulling it out, if it comes out easily the door gasket needs replacing

I have a kitchenaid dishwasher model KUDMOITJBLO installed as new unit in Oct. 2002 in a new home. Current problem is water coming from front door, bottom as unit starts wash cycle after filling. Leak is...


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.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

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...

No water will come out of the door


At the bottom of the freezer door ( remove the kick plate ) , there will be a water line . Follow this line , about 6 " to a connector . Push in on the white ring and pull out the line , at the same time . Activate the water dispensor pad and see if water flows from the line under the refrig . If it does , then the line in the door is frozen . Either raise the freezer temp for several days , so the line in the door will thaw , or , I have heard using an air tank will blow the ice out of the line in the door . If no water comes from the line under the refrig , while activating the pad , then replace the water valve , behind the refrig , the piece the wall water line connects to on the refrig . GE has a dispensor heater pt. # WR41X10173 to stop this freezing and it comes with instructions .
