My dishwasher is leaking from the bottom of the front door. I can't seem to get to the drain filter. Can that be removed? I think there may be a clog in it.


If the leak is from the bottom of the front door than it is most likely the door seal. If the leak is from beneath the unit and appearing to leak out from the front there are many sources for the water.

Check the seal around the door. It may have some residue that has collected prohibiting the seal. The water in the machine actually sits in a tub. The seal on the door prohibits the water leaking as the spray arm rotates.

To test the door seal start the cycle and stop the unit as soon as the machine begins the spray cycle. Open the door and observe that the tub is full but still below the edge. Dry the seal around the door. Place colored paper towels or cloth beneath the door as close to the door seal as possible, Continue with the cycle and observe for water leaks. Stop allow the unit to sit a few seconds open door and observe the seal. You are looking for the location that it is leaking.

If you can confirm that the seal is leaking you can purchase replacement seals, On some models they can be easily replaced.

In my experience I have not seen a filter in the return line. If there is a blocked return hose the unit would not leak. The tub would remain filled after the cycle. There is an overflow switch that prohibits the tub from overfilling if the tub has not emptied between cycles.

Sounds like you have to have a leak in the water line somewhere. The water line goes to the top hinge in the door, so the water has to come from somewhere below that point or it would be collecting inside the door and leak out the front. A leak would prevent water from getting to the ice maker, or a leak at the valve could have this effect as well. Check the water valve that gets a call to send water to the ice maker.

GE side by side leaks water from underneath when you use the water from front door


you need to remove the toe kick panel grille below the front doors on the refrigerator behind this grille there is a connector and it can come loose,also possibly the water valve in the lower rear behind the back panel can leak,have a helper press the door paddle for water and check all these areas for leaks,if it leaks from the door stem where the water line goes up the door to the dispenser,then you will need to pull new hose up to the dispenser from the collar mentioned at first,some refrigerators can not have new hose installed due to the door has been foamed internally at the factory and cant be dis-assembled,then you would need a new door with the hose installed

We have water leaking out of the front of our washer not from the door but from just below the door. Is all over the floor??


most likely you have a hole in the boot seal,the rubber piece in between the door and the tub,also open the door and wipe the bottom part of the door on the plastic window,i've found pieces of hair there and the water travels down the hair and leaks through the door.if that's clean you have a hole in the boot seal,open the door,spread the rubber boot open and with you fingers feel all around the rubber boot

Hello,
Have a look at the bottom spray arm and check the ends of the arm for splitting as this will cause the water to be directed at the door lower section and leak.Try taking arm out and run for a short while and see if it stops the leak.If still no good check that door is closing fully.

LG Dishwasher LDS5811bb. Water is leaking out


The dishwasher may not be levle side to side and front to back.
Se the installation instructions or go www.lgusa.com
they may have the instructions on line.

This will cause leakage at the door.

If the leak is @ the bottom left it may be from the drying vent assembly.
The vent would need to be replaced with an updated vent assy.

Leaking water from the front of machine,


Hi

The water level in a front loader should always be below the door line so consequently it should not be possible for water to leak out the door unless there is a problem with the actual door seal itself.

However if you are using too much, or incorrect type of detergent, the washer may be producing too much suds. Too much suds can cause door to leak.
Other causes of a leak which appears to be coming from the front but is on fact coming from elsewhere: Check the water inlet hoses. Check the drain hose. Check the standpipe (upright drain pipe used instead of a sink), or the wash sink connections. These will often be the actual source of a leak. When they leak the water can roll under the washing machine and appear at the front.

Also check this link for a good description of how to troubleshoot leaks happening at various stages during the cycle.
