Having problems with your Admiral Dishwashers ?

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


Answers :

It may not be the door that is leaking if this is an older admiral or whirlpool dishwasher the lever that holds the soap door closed has a little rubber seal that after time will let water in during the wash cycle it the runs down the inside of the door and out the bottom if you rmove the in side of the door you will probably see the water trail from the wax motor down. this gasket is not expensive or hard to replace.

Hello, I have a Kitchen Aid dishwasher, model KUDS30IVWH3. The dishes have not been getting as clean lately, the bottom is decent but the top rack is not getting very clean. Also, when I open the door after the cycle is done, there's a bunch of detergent at the bottom of the door and on the floor of the dishwasher, like it isn't getting sprayed all over or something. Don't know if I have to check the water intake valve or if maybe the sprayers could be partially clogged.

Hi, We have a Frigidaire dishwasher machine 1500 series with fully electronic control. It is a new unit, has been installed nearly 4 months ago. The other day, when I went to take the dishes out of it, I notice that the rubber gasket that seals the door had come off somehow. Along with it I saw, sitting on the bottom, two pieces that looked like part of the seal, but I didn't know where they came from. I put the rubber gasket back on, but now the pieces and now the dishwasher will leak when runn

The detergent dispenser [Main Wash] door doesn't stay closed. It seems like there is something wrong with the latch, but we can't what. We've cleaned it, but don't know what else to try. There don't seem to be pieces missing or broken. But no matter what, when we put in the detergent [we use the cubes] the door always just pops open and the detergent ends up falling to the bottom on the dishwasher. The dishes are still getting relatively clean, but we want to solve the problem with the door

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.


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 proper ... Dishwashers

I have a Kenmore Model 665.15955792 dishwasher. Water is leaking out the bottom of the door. I changed the door seal and the defusers but it continued. I took off the front of the door and I see the water filling into the base of the machine. When the dishwasher starts the cleam cycle, water is pushed up into the small square holes in the bottom of the door and then splashes up over the lip of the door and out onto the floor. It has never done this before, just started recently. I have had the d

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

Hello! I have a Kenmore Dishwasher Model # 665.15805890. The dishwasher came with the house and I'm guessing it is around 10 years old. My toddler was having a great time flipping the door to the soap dispenser back and forth until he pulled the door off of the pin. Now, I can't seem to position the spring in a way so that the door will spring back. I never looked closely at the hinge before, so I don't know if that is the only reason the door will not release the detergent, or if something

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.

I have an old Bauknecht dishwasher GSF 3160 S that a friend gave us 10 years ago. It was stored for that time, and now if I try to use it, it leaks out through the bottom and floods the kitchen. I would like to know 1) is it worth fixing from the point of view of how energy/water efficient (or inefficient) an old dishwasher is - if you know the specs for this particular machine, and 2) what needs to be changed if it is worthwhile fixing. I don't know what else might not work, because I only pu

I have cleaned both door gaskets and tried to reseat the inside door panel, to no avail.

The insultation on the bottom of the door is wet. My repairman said water is getting behind the soap dispenser and the rubber gasket around the dispenser is hard. The dishwasher is only 4 years old. Is this possible. The insulation at the bottom of the door is wet. Oddly, this is an intermittant problem. The past two days, with a small load of dishes, there was no leak. Help!!
