I have a 14 year old Whirlpool dishwasher that leaks randomly.
For reasons I have yet to determine, the machine randomly leaks water from the
bottom corners of the door. I can not figure out why it happens sometimes, and
other times not.
To the extent that I can tell, the seals look OK. The vertical seals look good
and the "knife edge" of the door that engages on them is good. I can not see
the horizontal seal under the door, but I assume there is one.
Also, there are two plastic tabs that point towards the door, just inside the
vertical seals. These tabs pull out and there is considerable crap built up
underneath. What purpose do they serve?
One note is that it drains into a waster disposal (garberator) under the sink.
I thought the leaks might be occurring when there is unprocessed waster in the
sink drain, but that doesn't seem to be it.
If anyone has any suggestions I would be happy to investigate. It works
perfectly well otherwise, and I don't want to replace it if I don;t need to.
