Hi. My dishmaid dw12 sometimes leakes water. ive checked the water inlet and draing and its not that. what could it be


If the water is appearing at the front of the dishwasher during use, it's most likely that one of the door seals needs replacing.

There is a white panel, about 4 inches high, below the door. Stand to the side of the washer, open the door about half-way, and have a feel about on top of that lower panel. If it's wet, it's almost certain one of the seals is perished - usually the bottom door seal. This seal isn't visible like the goal-post seal that runs around the sides and top.

Also, food waste can build up on or under the seals and cause leaks.

If the water is appearing from the back or under the washer, then further investigation is needed and you may need an enginner. It's hard to be definite as you haven't been very specific about where and when the leak occurs.

How do I adjust top drawer height? The seal around top drawer appears to be leaking and there is a lot of dried residue around the top edge of the drawer. Water appears to be leaking from the top.


Not sure if adjusting top drawer height will fix the leak. The only way to fix the drawer seal leak is to take the drawer out and check what is wrong with the seal which is located around the top edge of the cabinet from inside.

Hope this helps. Please rate this solution if helpful otherwise please post a comment

How can I fit a bottom door seal on a Brandt dishwasher please. My dishwasher is leaking but the door seal and gaskets are intact although the sealant which held the gaskets in place has disintegrated....


Hello,
If the bottom seal is definitely worn then it is quite a simple job.The seal is just pushed into a groove at the bottom of the door,as you pull the old one out be very careful as the edge of the groove is like a knife edge,the new seal will push in gently starting from one end and keep pushing into the groove try not to stretch the seal in length.Another thing to check first is check the bottom spray arm for splits on the edges as this could be directing the water onto the door,if there are splits then the arm will need replacing.

Hope this helps.

The top draw has a small leak in the back. Its about 5 years old. How do I pressure the lines to find the leak?


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.

Freezer frosting up all the time


Door seal isn't the problem. Freezer heater is. Start a new chat and make it a premium and I can tell you what to look for. By the way, you posted a refrigerator problem in dishwashers. Might want to change that too. If this is helpful, please post as such. TY
