Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have a GE dishwasher Model GSD1100G00WW, Serial # RF782293B. some of the detergent leaks from under the door on the right side. No water is leaking. Could this be from the spotting agent reserve tank or is this a common problem?

Hi,

If there is no water with the leak it is most likely from the rinse agent dispenser. The image below is a cut away diagram of the inner door, the dispenser is part number WD12x398 and is called out as 811. It is shown in the bottom picture.

Let me know if you have questions.

    Do you have any idea of what the part will cost?

    Is this something that a DIYer can replace? Are there any special tools required?



    Thanks

    The dispenser would run about $15.00, it is something that can be done if you are fairly mechanical.

    You would want to open the door, take all the screws out from the rim around the inner door.

    The inner door will separate from the door frame.

    You will see the dispenser on the back of the inner door.

I just got a new whirlpool dishwasher and it is leaking water from under the cabinet when operating. When I took off the small panel on the bottom of the DW I could see a drip coming from above somewhere...


Hello

Too much detergent can cause over-sudsing, which causes detergent suds and water to leak out of the door. Whirlpool recommends that you use between 0 and 6 grains per gallon for soft to medium water and between 7 and 12 grains per gallon for medium to hard water. Only use fresh detergent, as old detergent can also cause suds. Keep large pots and pans away from the dishwasher door. Water can bounce off of these items and exit through the seal. Always place dishes in the lower rack to prevent the spray arm from ejecting water right onto the door.

The door gaskets create a seal around your door, preventing water from escaping. If the gaskets are brittle or torn, you must replace them. Clean the gaskets if detergent or food particles are stuck to them. Level the cabinet if the dishwasher is unlevel, which can cause water to squeeze through the door. You can raise or lower the dishwasher feet. Tighten the door latch, if loose. Water temperature above 120 degrees Fahrenheit can also cause leaks. Test the water temperature by running the hot water faucet in your kitchen. Insert a waterproof thermometer into the water. Lower the temperature setting on your hot water heater if too warm.

Your Whirlpool dishwasher can also leak if the tub is filling up with too much water. Check the water inlet valve and the float switch. If either one of these components is stuck, the tub overfills. Replace the component. Examine the water inlet valve if water is dripping from this part. The valve has a tube that goes from it to the dishwasher. Replace the tube if split or punctured.

Your dishwasher has a main tub seal. This seal must stay wet, or it becomes brittle and cracks. Unplug the dishwasher, and remove the spray arm, lower rack and impellers. Replace the seal. You have both inlet and drainage hoses on the rear of your machine. These hoses leak if they are split or not connected properly. Replace any damaged or crushed hoses, and tighten the connections if loose. Verify that the washers inside the hoses are installed properly.

GE Dishwasher Quiet Power III Dishwasher leaking


The average life of dishwashers is 7-10 ten years so it might just be dying but try this. If the leak is a small one that seems to always be near the left side of the dishwasher put a cup of white vinager in the upper rack and run the unit on pots & pans or heavy duty. This is caused by a build up of detergent that make the unit oversuds, when the suds turn back into water it leaks out the left front corner. The amount of water is not huge, one towel to clean up. If the leak is larger it could be the pump is leaking and you can order a new one with your model # from marcone.com

My maytag quiet series is leaking from the door what do i need to do to stop this leak. The flow on the bottom right move freely.......


Not sure why your enquiry landed in the Kitchen Aid dishwasher category?

It is hard to provide suggestions without having the Dishwasher Model no. I have looked at the manual for MDB7600AWW which is one of the Maytag Quiet Series category. (they must be all similar I presume)

If the water leak is minor - it could be steam condensing from the top right corner vent that is used for drying the dishes.

Other sources of water leak could be -
  • foaming of detergent - use the recommended detergent
  • unclean door liner - clean the door liner
  • dishwasher is not level - refer to installations instructions
  • door liner is damaged - replace door liner

Maytag Jet Clean leaking through right side of door during rinse


It is important to examine the leak to see where it probably originates.

If the water is leaking from the right hand side of the door on your dishwasher, it is time to replace the gasket that seals the door when the door is latched.
