I had the same problem and replaced the door seal. You need to remove the front door to do this. Requires some 'handyman' experience.

SOURCE: kenmore dishwasher leaking from bottom of door

This is commonly caused by a worn door seal. Over time, these seals compress to the point where they no longer seal correctly, or food particles and grime get caught between the door and seal and leave small air gaps. The silverware tray (if located along the left or right side) can also cause damage to the door seal as utensils get caught on the seal surface as you roll the lower rack in and out of the tub. As water splashes up against the inner door facing it rolls out the bottom of the door, or down along the sides instead of staying in the tub. The only other items that can contribute to leaking are:

1. A dishwasher that is not level, which causes the door not to seal properly.

2. The inner door panel being warped causing the door facing not to be even for the gasket to seat properly.

3, Dish placement. If you place bowls, serving trays and large tumblers in the front row of the bottom rack on some dishwashers it can contribute to water being deflected over the front edge of the tub and out the bottom of the door (Believe it or not, I've seen it happen).

NOTE: Most dishwashers do not have a seal across the front lip of the tub. That's why it's important to have a good door seal and to load it properly.

If you've loaded the dishwasher properly and confirmed it is level (front to back and side to side), then here are your options:

1. Replace the inner door panel at a cost of about $115.

2. Replace the door seal at a cost of about $35-$40.

Parts can be purchased from any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

Use whatever parts source you like, but I have found these to be the cheapest and most reliable sites to order parts from. Shop all of them for the best price.

NOTE: The inner door panel is listed under the Door Parts section. The tub gasket will be listed under the Tub Parts section.

I think I would pursue the cheaper option, first. Its also the much simpler option. To replace the door seal, follow these steps:

1. Pull the old door seal from the groove around the wash tub facing. Take note of which surface area of the gasket is inserted in the groove and which surface is facing the door. It may not seal properly if you install the gasket the wrong way.

2. Clean the area really well to ensure there are no food debris or soap deposits. Also clean the inner door area where the door meets the gasket. You need a clean surface for the best results.

3. Locate the center mark of the new gasket. This will be a small paint spot or small groove on the gasket (this surface is the side of the gasket that will be inserted in the groove around the tub facing). If there is no center mark, fold the gasket in half and mark the location with some chalk, or hold with your fingers.

4. Locate the top center part of the wash tub facing and align the center mark of the door gasket at that point. Begin pushing the gasket into the groove with your hands and work your way around and down along each side.

5. Make sure the gasket is inserted all the way around the tub facing to the point where it meets the wash tub bottom. You can pull the gasket out and readjust as necessary.

This repair should take you about 30 minutes or less to complete. Its simple and requires no tools. The door will be tough the shut for a while until the gasket compresses and takes the door shape. Do not slam the door if it becomes difficult to shut. Simply close the door and the push firmly at the point just above the door latch until the latch clicks. Slamming the door can damage the control panel components, the door latch and/or the hinges. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: DIshwasher doesn't drain. 3-4 inches of water sits in the bottom.

A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.

Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.

Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.

SOURCE: KitchenAid Dishwasher Door Pops open during cycle

I found the problem, there are two grey plastic caps/ plugs on the inside of the tub about an inch in size.They meet the door as it closes to help secure while on. These caps can wear down over time from opening and closing the door.The ones on my dishwasher had flat spots on them.They should be completely round.I replaced them and have not had a problem since, 2 months going strong.You can find the parts online at any of the KitchenAid replacement parts sites.The part# is W10082838.Oh yeah it took me last then a minute to replce them

Good luck,
Anthony

My Dishwasher door keeps springing open - how do I fix this?

While the washer is on and the water starts the door opens how to fix this? thanks


Hello Shirin;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Push in the top and bottom trays. Close the door. Now, open the door. Are either the top or bottom trays pushed out?

In the bottom center is your water distribution vanes. Are they stuck up in the operating mode? Push the center water distribution vane down, push the top and bottom trays in, close the door and reopen. Are the upper or bottom tray sticking out? inspect the guide rails. Is there something blocking them?

So, your problem is:
1.) The trays are pushing against the door because they will not go in all of the way.
2.) You have a broken latch assembly.

You did not provide a model number. This is on a tag either on the top of the door or on the face of your dishwasher after you open the door

Remove filter moffat dishwasher


Moffat dishwashers are most probably a rebranded GE appliance.
As you have not provided a model number it is a bit hard to be specific.
This video on a GE Profile dishwasher might help you with the removal of filter.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZvrd9_Kmt8

I can't reatach top( glasses) rack I can't figure out where the clips go into.


The clips attach to the upper tray assembly...you clip the little roller assemblies (all one piece) onto the bottom of the tray...along the lowest part of the tray...when clipped in place...(I'm not sure but there will be an even # on both sides) you then put the tray back into place and it will roll inside or along a silver track...which may have a slot cut out where the rollers drop down into and then the tray is pushed back...into place and the last roller drops into the slot and the tray will extend along with the arm that the rack is sitting in/on.
I hope this helps...any more ??...just ask....good luck...thanks for rating my effort...The Fang.

Can't say for certain, as you don't list a brand or model number, but most have the springs on each side of the outer tub. (you will have to pull dishwasher at least partway out of the cabinet to access them) Some have a set of springs behind the access / toe kick panel. (DW removal unnecessary for these)
