Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

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.


Answers :

You may want to check the door alignment itself. Many people open and close the door improperly and when they load it sometimes they put pressure on the door in one corner or the other. Check to make sure the door is completely shut and shut properly. It will be a pain, but let it dry out and tuck moisture revealing cream on the bottom seam. This will reveal where the moisture is coming from, but that is a pain. I think you will find a misaligned door is the culprit

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

Door leak I have a small leak between the bottom of the dishwasher door the lower service panel on the dishwashere.

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?


This sounds like a hinge problem to start with.\015\012\015\012Test the seal by dragging a strip of paper through it with door closed.

Kenmore model#587(Frigidaire) leaks under door. New install. Had machine for a year plus before install. took off front panel- can see water squirting past lower door gasket as wash arms rotate. cause is water running down door during wash cycle piles up in the channels molded into the lower left & right side of the wash tub and pushes out the sides of the lower gasket. looks like a design issue- called SEARS, they just want to sell me a new gasket! go figure. any ideas on a fix?


It does sound like an inner door seal ,however If you get upset at Sears and complain they may help you as they say the squeaky hinge gets the oil..And with Sears the more you squeak the better your chances of results ...Good Luck ... Dishwashers

I have a Maytag DWU8250BAX and the thing leaks like crazy. I just replaced the door gasket, but that is not the problem. When I took a closer look at the door it seems as though the water is getting up and into the door through a space in the bottom of the door. It seems to me like there should be another door seal to fill a gap that sits between the door hinges. If anyone knows if there should be a seal here and then what the part number might be that would be great. Thanks!
