Is it overflowing or is it leaking?
If overflowing the water too high float switch may be sticking. It may
be gummed up but often easily lifted out and cleaned.
However both ours and neighbours leaked around the door gasket (they
did not overflow). Ours merely needing cleaning of many years of
grunge etc. and has been leak free for last two or three years.
Neighbour cleaned theirs and also added some caulking and it has been
leak free for several months. Even if a new gasket is needed should
not be expensive and can be self installed with normal tools. After
all this is a do it yourself group; right?
Is it? I thought it included "pay someone", but those conversations
are generally shorter, because it's a simpler process. And almost
independent of the repair being done.
That said, I certainly prefer to do it myself. I don't like people
touching my things, and when I screw up, I'm not nearly as mad at
myself as I am at myself for hiring the wrong guy.
