The water inlet valve will need to be replaced. The valve has a filter screen that may have become blocked.

Leaking water from front of door. Replaced boot seal but still leaking. It looks like door is kicked out at the bottom. Would replacing the hinges help?

Try turning the water pressure down. If you have high water pressure the water comes into the dispenser to hard and splashes over the front & side of the dispenser draw the trickles down the inside of the front panel out on to the floor. Very common front loader problem.

My lg dishwashers door will drop open suddenly

If it is sudden opening during cycle then it is due to pressure build up inside the dishwasher is forcing the door to open.

a) Most likely your door latch is not holding proper enough. Quite common on LG.

b) May be your vent in the dishwasher is blocked so the pressure inside cannot get out. If vent blocked you have plate drying problems too.

c) Is the dishwasher leveled properly. Is it leaning to the front. This will be that extra help for the door to open when pressure build up inside the dishwasher.

Dishwasher will not drain

If it runs normally, other than draining, then it could be the float switch or water pump. The water is removed under pressure since it must go up into the disposal or drain line. If you dont mind getting a little wet, try engaging the door latch safety and running while peaking inside. If the 'blades' arent spinning and the water is trickling, then you can try the next step at your own risk. Electricution risk: I have had to remove the floor panel and manually turn the impellor on the electric motor; noting that it should spin freely, if it does not spin. but builds tension when turned then continue turning until it suddenly 'pops free'. Then you should be good. Be careful!!

Dishes won't get clean. I opened the door, pushed the button and re-latched the door with the door open to see if the water was spraying out of the bottom properly... it is just trickling out of the...

Your lower spray arm is probably clogged. The clog may be caused by grease or scum OR it could be from bits of debris that has not been flushed from the machine.
Generally, the lower spray arm is easily removed by unscrewing a nut or thumb screw on the top of the arm. The arm will lift off easily and you can flush it at your kitchen sink. I sometimes have to take a toothpick, a brush, and/or tweezers to remove bits of paper, bone, or peelings. You can also soak it in ammonia to cut the grease that may have built up inside it.
Then put it in place and rescrew the nut or screw.This should restore the water pressure.
I hope this helps. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my solution

Bosch Exxcel Diswasher SGS43E08GB/43. Top spray bar won't spin. All arms, spray holes, ducts, filters, etc are clean and free from obstructions. Water comes out of the holes on the top bar but it won't...

try starting the washer, then opening to door and checking the water level in the bottom of the machine, as far as I know, there should be enough water there to disolve the tablet when it sits in the bottom. if not that much, bung in a few cupfulls and you should see the pressure dramatically increase!

I have a Frigidaire Gallaxy Series top loading washing machine, 4 years old that seems to be leaking from the bottom. Is this something I can fix myself? THANK YOU.

Before you buy a new $100 door gasket, pull out the soap dispenser tray and look inside the washer where it normally sits. If there is significant soap accumulation (even 3/8 inch), the water can become backed up and trickle down the washer front to the door bottom, making it look like a door leak. Fixed mine this way.

Dishwasher does not spray water just trickles out.

Ok this normally happens when there is a leak in the base
pull it out and remove both side panels
Do you see any water in the base
look on the left side there is a red bar which goes down to the botton lift this up and down you should hear the swich clicking make sure the rod is down then retry it

The micro screen maybe clogged but the main culprit may be the larger filter found inside the unit upon which the spray arm sits. It has sometimes significant calcium type deposits that I nearly completely cut off the water flow.
Link above is how to check, your spray arms, to test.

Water comes into the dishwasher not through the spray arm.
It comes through the water inlet valve out of the hole on the left side of the tub.
The lack of the pressure could be if it is not enough water came into the dishwasher during the fill up time.
Add a 1/2 of gallon of water manually and see how the spray arm spins. If it spins better then the next step is to check the water shut off valve under the sink. Is it open all the way or not?
If it's fine then the problem is the water inlet valve. It could be blocked with hard water deposits or it's not opening all the way. In both cases it has to be replaced.

Water was leaking out of the bottom of the door. the bottom gasket is just sitting on the bottom of the frame. is it supposed to be attached.

yes it should be round the door cabinet , this is what creates the seal in order to keep the water within the dishwasher.
