We have a dishwasher that is leaking water onto the floor. It is clear that
the rubber strip right under the door (door gasket?) is loose. One end is
attached while the opposite end is detached. Do I just glue it back on or
do I need to buy a new part? If I glue it back on, what kind of glue should
I use? Thanks for any advice.
I've glued on the 2 vertical portions of my Sears DW with clear silicone
rubber. Did that more than 2 years ago and it only came loose ONE time.
Another quick application and it'll stay stuck again for a long time.
Make sure the surfaces are dry and oil free. LET IT CURE THOROUGHLY
before using the DW. Wait AT LEAST a day.
What kind of d/w?....model#?
Some model# helps if needed.
If really needed a d/w safe ( and dish safe ) silicone should work well....
White silicone adhesive, specially formulated for use in the dishwashers.
