Water dripping out of door vent in lower left side

\015 Repair guy put new vent tube in and soap dispenser, yet I still have a leak. What causes this? How do I fix it.\015

Answers :

This is being caused by the vent tube design. The lower fitting is pushed up into the upper fitting so water leaks out from the top. The fittings are designed backwards. Remove front door panel and their will be a white tube running down the side. That tube is pushed up into its mate. Pull it down and silacone calk all around the out side of that pieces and the inside of the upper piece. put them back together and then tape it with some duck tape. DO NOT US FOR AT LEAST 24 hrs.

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

When the dishwahser door is lowered to unload the bottom rack, I get a small puddle from the top, left side of the door. this is the area where there are vents for the steam that releases during the final stages of the dishwashwer. this puddle happens every single time regardless of how long or short of time after the dishwasher is complete. Is something not working correctly? Or is this just a bad design and condensation is buidling up and this puddle is the result? My wooden floor is taking a

I own a Miele G977 Plus dishwasher. There is what looks like a vent at the top left corner of the door. During the course of a wash a noise that sounds like a fan comes from this vent. Whwn the wash is complete and I open the door of the dishwasher water flows out of the vent onto my kitchen floor. What is the problem and how do I rectify it. Tom

Bosch SHU4302 DW has a leak in the bottom left. I cleaned the gasket etc. but no luck. Slow leak drip by drip in the wash cycle. This model does not seem to have the steam vent that other Bosch models have. I can clearly see the water past the gasket on the left, but not the right. But the gaskets on left and right seem to be located identically. Any help in resolving is appreciated. Best Regards

Quit working during wash cycle, about 6 liters of water left in bottom, looks like it quit during rinse cycle. There is power to the door switch and door switch works shutting off power when door is opened. However the control panel does not respond to any push button. I have had a problem in the past with moisture from the door vent getting into the control panel area causing the push buttons to become eratic.


The capacitors in the control panel could be bad or have burnt out. Do check all connnections and if necessary, check the continuity of the power to and from the control panel with an ohm/voltmeter. ... Dishwashers
