I have model EIDW6305GS0. It is a little over a year old. There are small puddles of water under the door after running it but not every time. When I run my hand along the bottom edge I can feel a wet sponge like material between the outside and inside of the door. I assume a gasket or insultation material are leaking. Is this something I can fix myself. Thanks, Mary Herman [email protected]

I have a Bosch SHU66C02. I opened the door to stop it from running temporarily, while it was sitting not running, it leaked all of the water out of the bottom right corner of the door, and when I went to start it later it just hummed but the timer didn't go down for over an hour. I tried to put more water in but as soon as I started I could hear the water added to drain. I turned the breaker in the fuze box off to it and let it sit for over an hour, but when I restarted, the timer was still at

My dishwasher is leaking on the sides of the door and then runs to the bottom, but I think it is leaking down from sides to the bottom, I can see water splashing out from the side, my gasket is not loose or hard, my Maytag is 13 years old

Hi, I have a small leak at the bottom right hand corner of the door. If you push in on the door while it's running it stops and the noise level goes down. Is there an adjustment for the door or would it just be the seal, it's 4 yr. old. My wife say's that the grand kids have leaned on the door in the down position , we try to keep it up when they are around , that's why I am asking about a door adjustment. Thanks


No adjustment. Try cleanig door gasket. If still leaks hinge probably got bent from leaning on door. Or door got bent. Needs to be taken apart to find cause for problem. ... Bosch 24 in. SHE44C05UC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

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

I have a 12 year old Kenmore Ultrwash Model #665.15951790. I recently replenished the rinse aid dispenser and am experiencing an oversuding problem. It was oversuding to the point that suds were coming out the bottom of the door. Did notice that the blue rinse aid seemed to have leaked into the dishwasher due to a puddle of blue rinse aid at the bottom of the dishwasher. Have run a "quick rinse" cycle 4 times with no dishwasher soap added and still have sudsing. Can the rinse aid cause oversudin

My frigidaire dishwasher leaks from the bottom right of the door. It forms a puddle while running a load of dishes. Looks like the seal is gone underneath the door on the right side. Any idea how to replace this seal? Thanks.


One possible solution to your problem could be as follows... Could have been little regular soap or something put in that made it suds up causing it to leak out of the front and sometimes not to drain all water out. Pouring vegetable oil into the dis ...

I have a Bosch SGS43A22 Dishwasher approx 8 years old. When I start a cycle it fills, runs for about 15 minutes, then drops out about a litre of water from the bottom of the door, then completes the cycle without any more leaking. I have run the machine with the front panel off and can see that water bypasses the top of the seal and fills the well of the seal then pours out. It only happens the once. The seal is fitted correctly. Any solutions?


After 8 years service the seal may have perished, so you should feel for a crack by stretching the rubber where you noticed the leak. ... Bosch 24 in. SGS43C12 Classixx Free-Standing Dishwasher

I have a bosch dishwasher SHE43C06UC22 (non-LED version). It's stuck in the drain cycle and continues to run even when opening the door (it should stop, but it doesn't). As a test, I poured a large glass of water in the bottom of the dishwasher and it drained it into the sink as it should, but it continues to run in the drain mode with no water in it. I've heard I either have a float stuck or an emergency drain switch or leak somewhere causing the dishwasher to continue in the drain mode. Ho

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

Model 587784100 My 18inch Kenmore apartment-sized portable dishwasher leaks when running and needs a new main rubber gasket (where the door seals the washer), and a new collar of some sort of white hard plastic collar at the very bottom of the spinning washer arm (which I believe helps make it spin more freely and not "chatter"?) My question is: Is it possible foe a handy person to replace these parts (looks fairly easy), or should I get a proper Kenmore/Sears repairman to fix it?


If you think you can do it then do it. it is normally not any harder than it looks. now because i work there i would say call them :) but you can change those parts fairly easily ... Kenmore Dishwashers
