For replacement parts - head over to www.searspartsdirect.com and enter your full model number. That will bring up an expanded parts diagram and parts ordering.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Thanks!!

Door Gasket keeps coming loose on Frigidaire FGHD2433KF. How Do I keep it in? Glue?


Good Morning friend, thanks for your post!

From the information you have provided the door gasket on your Frigidaire dishwasher continues to come loose. Typically, when your gasket starts coming out you may need to have a replacement gasket installed. I would recommend operating the gasket you need from your manufacturer and replacing it. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Leaks from door gasket.Should I change the gasket or the whole door? Thanks


Replace the door seals/gasket.

You also have adjustment on the door hinge springs. You need to remove side panels to get to the hinge adjustment on the sides and tighten them. Sometimes the chasis of the machine gets bent from the weight of the door.
If you need instructions on removing the side panels let me know.

Dishwasher leaks from the bottom of the door


Hi, if it is leaking around/under the door, it must be the seal around the door. Check to see if the seal needs to be pushed in somewhere or is damaged..
Try running the cycle with no dishes in the washer and see if it leaks, it sounds like a gasket in the door to me and you can also check hose by removing the front panel on floor and check there....


Inspect the door gasket. As it ages, the gasket can crack or become hard, preventing it from sealing completely.
If the gasket appears solid, adjust the door latch so the door seals tightly. Loosen the screw that holds the door latch to the cabinet. Push the latch in slightly and re tighten the screw. Test the door and readjust the latch if necessary.
Replace the gasket if water continues to leak after you've tightened the latch. Most gaskets are held by compression in a groove on the door or on the dishwasher cabinet.

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.

Black spots on plastic items


I have the same problem on my Bosch dishwasher Model # SHX33A05UC. It is about 6 years old. I have replaced three gaskets and it did not solve the problem. I am a 25 year mechanical engineer. I do not recommend anyone changing these gaskets on their own except for the long dishwasher door gasket (which goes along the top, left and right door edges) which is quite easy to replace. The other two gaskets, which were quite difficult to replace, were the gasket at the bottom of the dishwasher door and the sump pump gasket. I am still having the tar like black tiny dots depositing on my plastic tupper wear on the second shelf. I will likely not buy a Bosch dishwasher ever again. I will make my decision after hearing what Bosch tech support has to say about what I need to replace next. Could it be the rubber drain check valve not operating correctly? I need to find out. I have spent so much time trying to solve this black tar dot problem!!!
