The dishwasher leaks under the door a couple inches right of center. I've
previously replaced the door gasket, which eliminated the problem for a few
months but it's started again.
When empty, I added Tang and ran a full cycle. It didn't leak. But when it's
loaded with dishes, it leaks (I added dishes and ran it with soap). This
doesn't make sense. Any ideas?
I had a GE that leaked similar to that. I could not find any reason
for the leak and it did it much worse when there were no dishes in the
machine. Because it was worse with no dishes I theorized that the
water was getting out thru the vent near the top of the door from "too
much splash and spray". Took the inside panel off and discovered that
the vent had some kind of diverter shield or something that was no
longer positioned correctly and was allowing water that got
squirted/splashed into the vent to leak down the inside of the door
and of course, out the bottom, looking for all the world like it was
leaking from the bottom seal. The diverter also looked like even when
properly positioned there was a good chance it would still let some
water pass. As I recall I put the diverter/shield back in position
and then also sealed it where it attached to the door itself to make
sure no water could escape to where it wasn't supposed to go.
Icky side note... This was in a rental house and when I took the panel
off I discovered that the inside of the door behind the panel was
chocked full of dead cockroaches.
