Frigidaire Dishwasher leaking but not from door

My dishwasher came with my new home but is not old... We are the first to use it. It seems to be leaking from under the washer. Not from the door but seems to drip from the motor it looks like that is in the very middle of the machine. A loose screw ??? It seems like it leaks when not running though.

Hi there,
dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, 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 try 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.

Water leaking during cycle


Good Morning Susan Hanley, thank you for your post!

From what you are describing it could be a possible problem with the gaskets for your Frigidaire dishwasher. Where is the leak coming from? If it is coming from the door it could be one of the door seals not sealing properly. Check the seals to make sure that they are not out of place.

If the leak is from the bottom of the dishwasher it could be a loose hose or drain pump issue. You may need to have a technician come out to your home to properly diagnosis and repair your dishwasher. I hope this is helpfully. -Matt

Frigidaire GLD2445RFS0 dishwasher has developed a door leak


Make sure the lower spray arm ends (there are 3 arms) are snapped together all the way. One of ours had come apart and was spraying water out the end of the one arm. It was enough to "spurt" water past the plastic gasket at the bottom of the door. I snapped the arm back together and BINGO. Free fix.

Can't find the model number on Frigidaire dishwasher


The nomenclature should be located on the left side on the inside of the tub right by the front when you open the door. It is most likely an fdb series example fdb1050. however the drain hose pn 154606701 is the factory replacement for most frigidaire dishwashers ten years or less.

If your dishwasher leaks, check these:Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses

Main tub seal
