Leaking problem from the door

When the dishwasher is operating there are leaks on the left side of the door.
The door does not seem to close completely. On the upper right side the door is tight, but not on the upper left, here you can push the door another 1/2 inch to make a tight closure. But as you release the pressure on the upper left it slacks off by itself.

Hi there,
dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, check these:

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom
of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you.
But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the
entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from
leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher,
remove the:

* Lower rack
*Spray arm
* Spray arm support
* Wash/drain impellers

Then try the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly.
You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the
rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten
or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues
to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the
dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the
leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

Fisher/p nemo dishwasher door


it is sometimes linked to the dishwasher not level or the spring tension on one side getting weak. Refer installation manual http://kitchen.manualsonline.com/mdownloads/c11d2c17-cb0a-489c-99bf-a61513fbf876.pdf to make sure the level is adjusted. May need to replace the door seal in case leak is too excessive.

Water drips out of bottem of door and i change the door seal


I have the same problem with my dishwasher. I have replaced the door seal and it still leaks. It seems like the channel where the seal fits is just a little too deep for the seal. As a temporary fix, I pull the door seal out of the channel about 3/8 inch on the side that leaks before closing the door to run the dishwasher. When the door closes, it pushes against the seal and that seems to work for me. A more permanent solution would to be to add about a 1/8 inch filler gasket into the channel then put the door seal back. That way the seal will press on the the gasket instead of bottoming out into the channel. Hope this helps you.

MAYTAG MDBO880AWB LEAKS FROM LEFT SIDE DOOR ONLY SOMETIMES AND


If the door is sprung in a manner that one side is flush and not other then most likely the hinge has been bent outward by the weight placed on it.the best solution would be to replace hinge,the spring only adjusts the tension for door closing. There is a slight possibility that either the frame or the door has bent in this manner so before buying hinge check frame and door for damage,after doing repair would suggest adjusting front legs of unit to raise front up a bit to ensure leaking wont continue

Door leaks


This dishwasher has a vent at the bottom left of the door that blows out hot moist air during the drying cycle. Are you sure that you are not getting condensation build up from this vented air that is dripping on your floor?

Door leak


I had the same problem. On the right side of the tank in Bosch dishwashers there is a steam port. If you place a large object in the right hand edge of the tray, a pressure build up causes the leak. Put large stuff on the left and you should be good to go!

Good luck.
