Replace lower door seal

Before I attempt this job I am aware that there is tension on the door and I know I will have trouble putting it back on. Any hints or tips on this procedure or a repair manual would be appreciated.
Thanks

Well, job done. I tried using cable ties to hold the hinges down without success, string would have broken immediately. The only way to do it without a specially made tool is to insert screwdrivers in the narrow gaps between the hinge and the frame with the handle held in place by the bottom of the door and the seal that is being replaced. The problem with this is that when the door is fully removed the screwdrivers are likely to slip and the hinges slam shut, disastrous if any body part is in the way. What is needed is another pair of hands to hold both screwdrivers in place. Apart from having to work around your helper( get a thin one if possible) the rest is easy. Fit the seal to the frame first, then position the fixing plates and hod in place with a paper clip in the lower screw hole. Re-attach the door to the hinge fixing the top screws first, remove the paper clips and fit the lower screws. Your helper can now make the tea whilst you re-fit the rest of the door.

How to replace bottom door seal


Difficult job. It may be possible to take the door halves apart and get to the screws that hold that bottom door seal to the door, but in some cases, it is necessary to remove the door completely and take it apart to be able to replace that bottom door seal. In any event, it's probably best to call a professional dishwasher repairman and let him do the job.

It's always best to remove a door to replace a seal. Lay the door on a hard flat surface so there isn't any twist in it. Remove the old seal and install the new one.

it may not be the door that is leaking if this is an older admiral or whirlpool dishwasher the lever that holds the soap door closed has a little rubber seal that after time will let water in during the wash cycle it the runs down the inside of the door and out the bottom if you rmove the in side of the door you will probably see the water trail from the wax motor down. this gasket is not expensive or hard to replace.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If you have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using a detergent that is causing too much suds. Cut back on the amount of detergent you use, and see if that makes a difference.

Water that spills through the door vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment. you should check the main tub seal, the door latch, the door gasket, the water-inlet valve, and the fill and drain hoses.

Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).

Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses. The pump seal may be defective, too; replacing this is a job for an appliance repairperson.

An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

The door seals on this Kitchenaid dishwasher are pressure fit into a metal channel that runs along the inside of the wash tub.


To install, simply remove the old seal paying close attention to which way it was installed, apply a bead of adhesive inside the channel, then install the new seal in the correct direction. A test fit prior to applying the adhesive is a good idea and if you are having trouble with one side being to long, try folding the seal in half, take hold of the looped end, and insert it under the door latch. The reset should go in properly. The new seal will be a tight fit which is the way we want it so it may take some force to get it fully seated. If the door is hard to close, then the door seal needs some more work.

Door Tension


just about the most difficult job to do on a dishwasher, not normally a job for the home mechanic, i am an appliance engineer of 20 years and often shy away from jobs like this,

there is often no adjustment, the hinges are sprained, more often that not by people either putting weight on the door to stand back up, or children climbing on to get higher

the only thing i think you can do is to check the springs are in place and nothing is broken or just come off that can be put back?? sorry
