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 cou


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

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

16 year old GE built-in dishwasher, model GSD900. Springs that prevent front door from falling disconnected. ALL parts APPEAR to be in good condition. I say appear in good condition because I don't know what they are supposed to look like. But I see nothing obviously broken. The 2 springs appear intact. The connecting cable is good. However one of the 2 springs is shorter than the other. It may be shorter because one is supposed to stretch to the other side of the dw? So number 1

I have a Kitchenaid dishwasher model KUDS01FLSS2. I finished replacing the door balancer cord and started the dw up and it started leaking underneath from the bottom somewhere around the middle of the unit. This is when it first enters the cycle, so there is no water inside. I pulled the DW out and look at the hoses and components under the DW and all looks in good shape and could not detect any cracks. However noticed that one of the hoses (not sure what the hose is called) that connects to the

A built in whirlpool dishwasher is leaking around the door seal, right side to be more specific. cleaned the seal, and along the bottom and it still leaks.

Door won't stay up or stay closed. The door used to be pulled in so it would stay closed and remain latched. Now it slams downward when you open it and won't remain latched when you want it to run. Some kind of counterweight seems to have disconnected.

Our Phillips SL2000 dishwasher (~20 years old?) has a leak from the door right hand bottom end when its splashing.

Our Hotpoint Aquarius Dishwasher BF11, built into the kitchen units is leaking steam from the door ( and starting to cause the wooden floor to bend ). Can I get a door seal for this model ?

My Zanussi DS17 slimline dishwasher is leaking from below the door at the front. The inside seals all seem to be fine, but the catchment moulding below the door (which is revealed at the front when the door is opened) is filling up with water, and then overflowing. I can't see where the water is comming from, but it is definitely the water from the washing cycle as it's hot. Any ideas? I haven't dragged the maching out from the wall yet, but I may have to.

Door dropped Opened door on my FDB421RFR and a loud cracking noise occurred - now the door drops quickly. I guess the spring(s) have broken - does anyone know if the spring is on the rhs looking at the front? I sure hope so, I can probably access that side without pulling the unit out! Is it good to spray these with WD-40 or do they just age anyway?
