Door gasket leaking


My GE washer model wcvh6400j0ww was leaking too. The repair person thought the same thing the gasket. It turned out to be the water in-let pipe (WH41X10118 and you will need seal WH41X10119) and not the gasket. He ordered the gasket and took machine apart to replace and found cracked pipe. Take your machines front off and make sure it is the gasket leaking. Good Luck,

Leaking at the bottom of a GE dishwasher


If it's under a year old, it's under warranty, just call 1-800-GECARES and they'll send someone out to replace the door gasket. If it is over a year old, you need to replace the door gasket. There are small black lines that extend beneath the door into the body of the dishwasher that will be replaced when you install the new gasket. This will seal the door so that you no longer have anymore leaks.
