Leaking door


Open the door and look inside at the lower left corner where the door gasket ends. See if there is any type of obstruction or foreign object in that corner. It doesn't take much to cause a door leak. Some door latches can be adjusted tighter. Look at the top door latch system and see if has 2 screws in it. You can sometimes loosen the screws and push the latch inward slightly and re-tighten the screws. That will make the door tighter when latched. Not all dishwashers have adjustable latch systems.

The new dishwasher kitchen aid we bought is leaking


If it is leaking from the front, then there is a problem with the seal that runs around the front of the dishwasher. It is usually located behind the main door on the edges of the unit itself, it will look similar to weather stripping. A cheap way of fixing this is to get real good weather stripping from Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Lowes, etc. It will have a sticky surface on one side, you peel off the paper, then apply the weather stripping to the actaul door, first try to mark where the old one sits against it.If its leaking from underneath, than it can be a number of things, but most are easy to repair, you just have to pull the dishwasher completely out to get a better look. Sometimes one of the components will be leaking, but for the most part, it might just need a new hose clamp or tightened up. Hope this helps.

Door leaks on the floor in front of my dishwasher


1. make sure dishwasher is level front to back and side to side.
2. check the main washer arm (WD22X154) on the bottom side for leaks. If you use heated dry, the heating elements can cause the part of the spray arm directly over it to soften and eventually leak. When water comes out that leak it can spray at the bottom of the door, splashing water inside it and resulting in your leak.
3. if 1 and 2 OK, watch how you load the lower rack. If dishes or a bowl direct water from the lower wash arm to spray against the bottom of the door, especially at the center of the door bottom, the resulting splash inside the door allows water to hit the outer door panel and drip out a one or both corners of the door.

Ge nautilus leak left side


If your dishwasher leaks, 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 pry 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.
