Question about LG LDF6920ST Stainless Steel 24 in. Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

I have an LGF6920ST dishwasher, puchased 18mos ago. since i've had it, it's gone from marginally ok to bad, now leaking puddles onto my floor from the lower left side (as i face it) of the door. besides occasional poor drainage, smelly water in the bottom to horrid cleaning (yes, it's attached to the hot water, i use rinse agent, etc) i rinse my dishes, in fact scrub them before putting them into this dishwasher, and honestly they come out nastier than when i put them in...primary concern right now is that i need to fix this leak. i have removed the front door panel, after unplugging and checking all hoses...now i'm stuck...looking for some kind of schematic for this thing before i haul it to the curb.

SOURCE: LG dishwasher wont clean top rack dishes

Recommend you remove the approximately 10 screws to pull the entire filter and manually clean. Remove all debris you find and thoroughly rinse out the filter if you can separate the top from the bottom. If the sump area is greasy, use a de-greasing spray to cut through it. Resemble, checking that there are no blockages in the holes on the spray arms.
Fill a bowl or cup with white vinegar and place it on the lower rack of the empty dishwasher. Do not add detergent. Run the quick cycle. The inside of the dishwasher should now be clean and not greasy. If still greasy, use the de-greasing spray (avaiable at all stores in the cleaning section.)
For 30 days, use only Electrosol or Cascade powder. Do NOT use gel or tablets, ever. Please report back your results. Good Luck!

SOURCE: door leak on built in LG dishwasher.

Check and make sure the unit is level front to back and side to side.
Check all 3 spray arms for plugged or restricted holes that may be diverting water in the wrong direction..

SOURCE: Water dripping out of door vent in lower left side

This is being caused by the vent tube design. The lower fitting is pushed up into the upper fitting so water leaks out from the top. The fittings are designed backwards. Remove front door panel and their will be a white tube running down the side. That tube is pushed up into its mate. Pull it down and silacone calk all around the out side of that pieces and the inside of the upper piece. put them back together and then tape it with some duck tape. DO NOT US FOR AT LEAST 24 hrs.

SOURCE: Lg DISHWASHER INTERMITTENT WATER LEAK

I had the same problem - intermittent leak at door, left side. The solution is to replace the level sensor and/or the inlet valve. This intermittent electrical malfunction allows to much water to enter the diswasher and spill out. I changed these parts once, it solved the problem and 8 months later the problem has returned.

SOURCE: Leaking water through the door bottom left about 6

The bottom of the door is NOT ACTUALLY SEALED. if you use the wrong or too much soap this can happen. Unit level is important.

My dishwasher leaks. a small puddle is in front


The symptoms you describe, sounds like it could be 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 following link explains some of the common causes of dishwasher leaks and what you can do to prevent them:

The part number for a replacement gasket for the model number you provided is 8268888.

This is a very simple repair. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please post back and let me know. hope this helps you.

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher that I have had for a year and a half - 8 months ago it broke and leaked into my kitchen ruining my wood floor which had to be replaced. Shortly after that the top sprayer...


I would check to make sure that the top spray arm wasn't over tightened when it was installed. That spray arm threads onto a plastic supply tube which is easy to strip, which will cause it not to tighten properly and leak down the side of the dishwasher and acros the floor.

Kitchenaid dishwasher is leaking


depends. take the lower panels off the dishwasher below the door right at the floor. Once this is done you will need a flashlight. If possible lay on the floor with the flashlight and activate the dishwasher. Look for the leak at that point. If it starts leaking in the drain cycle then the impeller is leaking and will need to be replaced. These can be a little pricey so take the model and serial numbers and call an appliance parts house for the cost and it is a little bit of a hassel to replace so only you will know if you want to tackle it yourself or buy a new dishwasher. If is leaking during the rinse cycle then the gasket at the base if the washer (where the motor connects to the dishwasher itself) has gone bad and this is a bugger bear to repair. So it's up to you if you want to repair or replace.

Good luck on repairs Hope I helped you some

HDB24EA is leaking from the bottom


If a dishwasher is leaking onto the floor you either have a loose connection--supply or drain, or the pump seal is bad. The connection leaks are easy to fix-just tighten. If you ahve a bad pump seal you're going to have to spend money. Usually about $60 for a seal kit if you do it yourself or a LOT of money if you have repairman do it. If this is an older machine and the seal is gone you might want to toss it.
