Leaking from bottom of door when in use - Dishwashers
Take a flash light and check for cracks around the bottom close to the door...if none are found then...Depending on your brand there should be a black gasket around the inside of the dishwasher. Right where the door meets the unit. It should just pull right out. Turn it around and put it back in. Don't stretch it, but make sure the ends get to the bottom. If that doesn't help, The inner door (the part that has the soap dispenser) needs replaced. Hope this helps...

Dishwasher leak I have a General Electric Potscrubber Mobile Maid dishwasher (model GSC720?) that hasn't been used in some time, but appears to still work OK. It has a leak from the left hand vent opening in the bottom of the door when operating. The seal around the door appears intact and doesn't leak. Can you suggest a probable cause, and remedy? Thanks, Bob.
With dishwasher empty and disconnected, find the screws around the area of the "vent",you may need to open it from the bottom. There will be a hose that has either ruptured or just needs the clamp tightened with a screw driver. I think that the hose ... Dishwashers
Leaky Dishwasher I recently moved into a new house that has a brand new Magic Chef dishwasher. We haven't even had a chance to use it, but last night discovered water leaking from the bottom onto the floor. When I opened the door, there was about 3-4 inches of water inside. I baled as much of the (slimey) water out as I could, and that stopped the leak. Now afraid to run the dishwasher for fear that it might leak even worse. E71195 Type 777-0

Hey Everyone! Ok try this one! I have been working on a KUDS25 Kitchenaid Dishwasher. It was leaking like a siv from the bottom. I replaced both top and bottom plastic bearings and also tightend all the screws at the bottom. Leak Gone, I thought. It now has small leaks down both sides. I have since been told by the owner that he took the door apart himself. I pulled out the dishwasher from the cabinet and ran it. I could see the leaks at the top on both sides of the door latch.

Hello davidgalb. You can install a new gasket to seal the door again. That old seal is not flexible any more. That said, for my time and money I recommend a replacement dishwasher, this one has definitely seen better days. Joe ... Dishwashers

Door leak I have a small leak between the bottom of the dishwasher door the lower service panel on the dishwashere. I did replace the seal on the inside bottom of the door along with the other parts that come with the door seal.

I did not check the water lever as was mentioned in a previous question on water level, but the float does move up and down quite freely. Any suggestions as to w

I don't have a model number right now, but the front door on my Admiral dishwasher is leaking at the bottom. I have changed the gasket inside the door panel at the bottom but it still leaks. This is a rental property and the renters did a job on this dishwasher. I was wondering if they may have pulled another lower gasket off that I didn't know existed. Something like a windshield wiper. The seal I changed was a foam strip 3 x 22 approx. Thanks for your time, Joan

Dishwasher leaking We bought our dishwasher in Sep/07, it was fine for a year, then started leaking out the bottom of the door on the left. We had the seal on the door replaced (didn't work) and then the door gasket replaced. That worked for less than a year, now it is leaking again in the same place. What could be going on? Have already put $400.00 repairs into this machine and am reluctant to put more money in to have it break again the same way. What do you suggest?

Frigidaire dishwasher model GLD2250RDC0 leaks from the bottom of the door. Just replaced the bottom gasket. Not helping. Noticed that the foam insulation on the bottom of the door is soaked. So, if it's not coming through from the gasket, what's causing the leaking on the inside of the door and through the foam insulation? Thanks for any help you can provide.
