If it is leaking @ the door and not from under the washer then I would inspect the seal for damage. If it is coming from under it can be the water supply or the discharge line.

My black LG 24 builtin dishwasher has suddenly started leaking about 1/3 cup of water around the bottom vent on the door (LH side). How do I make adjustments to the door to stop this? I have already...


Check the door seal. To do this, make sure the door and the rubber gasket is complete dry. Apply a liberal amount of liquid detergent around the rubber gasket. Then close the door. Open the door and look for the liquid detergent to transfer onto the door. If there is a gap, then you will need to replace the door seal.

Leaking water on the right hand side


Does it seem to be coming from the door it self or from underneath the unit?

If it's coming from the door, check the seal or maybe replace it. It's easy enough and cheap.


(disconnect power before proceeding to the next step)
If it's coming from underneath the unit, first start a cycle to drain it then stop it. Pull the unit out and flip it to its side(have a couple towels ready), then remove the bottom cover and check hoses connects or any signs of leakage.

Leaking water under drum area seems to leak more with larger load


Check the gray rubber seal by the door. Look all around, inside the folds, for a hole. (usually found on the right or left side) Replace door seal if hole found.

the wire ring just keeps the seal in place,, make sure the bottom of the door glass is clean,, if so look at the seal and see if it is pushed in alittle around the bottom,,you can take a hair dryer and heat it up while pulling it back out ,, ( just the lip part) if that doesnt work you will need to replace the whole gasket

LG WM2688HM front loader is leaking water around the door seal


this may be coming from the soap dispenser and running down round the door way and to the bottom- investigate that first. otherwise the seal may be worn/ damaged and needs replacing.

Door leaks


This dishwasher has a vent at the bottom left of the door that blows out hot moist air during the drying cycle. Are you sure that you are not getting condensation build up from this vented air that is dripping on your floor?

Lg DISHWASHER INTERMITTENT WATER LEAK


I have this same dishwasher,and have had the same problems that have been described in this forum..

LG model#LDS5811.I bought it from Home Depot as a scratch and dent with no warranty available for about $400.00.

The problems I have seen on my own and have read online have been Intermittent leaks on the left side door,as well as both sides.And in some cases,even wiring and motor problems.

In my case,the water was coming from a leaking O-ring behind the evaporator housing in the door,as well as a small hole in the drain hose in the part of the hose on the left side where the hose loops up the side of the machine behind the panel before it comes out of the back.

You will need to take the left side panel off to undo the wire holding the hose in place as well as remove the bottom plate over the motor to gain access to remove the hose from the pump to get the hose off of the machine.Simply replace the hose.You can order online or buy a replacement at an Appliance Repair store as I did.

To repair the door leak,you will need to remove the lower outside panel that is under the control panel.Inside the door,you will need to turn the vent cover at the top of the door counter clock-wise one-forth turn and remove the entire evaporator unit as a whole.You will see a 1.5 inch O-ring.

I repaired this by getting G.E 100% silicone that you can purchase at a Home Repair store like Lowes or Home Depot and sealing around both sides as well as putting a good bead on top of the O-ring itself,and wipe off the excess after re-installing.

I performed these repairs over a month ago,and have had very good success.No leaks to be seen.I am a A\C,Refrigeration Tech by trade,and have done alot of Appliance repair/installation as a side trade from being a maintenance technician at some very large Grocery chains the last 20+ years.

I completely dissassembled this machine and have found it to be a decent product,but some shoddy materials and questionable assembly practices have created these problems,but good sound engineering.

I hope this helps someone with the problems with this machine so it wont be a total loss.

Leaks from front door 2 loads AFTER too much suds


No. It is not a costly affair. Order a new door boot seal from your local agent and fit it yourself. If you lift the outer lip of the seal on the front of the machine you will see a wire that runs all the way around the seal and attatches to a spring. Remove this wire and pull the seal free. On the other side you will find a strap holding the back of the seal in place. Loosen the strap and the seal comes away. Fit the new seal in reverse order ensuring that the drain hole/s are at the bottom of the seal.
