leak @ bottom of door

First replaced the door seal, that slowed it down substantially, but not totally. Next replaced inner door foam insulation strip and that took care of it, no more leaks. There was some corrosion evident after I scraped off the old strip, sanded that smooth with emery sandpaper and then installed new strip. Job done!

AFTER REPLACING THE DOOR FOAM STRIP AND THE SOAP DISH GROMMET I STILL HAD THE WATER LEAKAGE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR, IN FACT A BIT MORE LEAKAGE. THEN I REPLACED THE FOAM INSULATOR STRIP ON THE INNER DOOR. STILL HAD THE LEAKAGE! I OPENED THE DOOR AFTER THE WATER FINISHED THE FILL CYCLE AND NOTICED THE WATER LEVEL WAS UNUSUALLY HIGH. APPARENTLY THE WATER FLOAT WAS PARTIALLY STUCK ALLOWING AN OVER FILL. I PUSHED ON THE FLOAT DOWNWARD A FEW TIMES AND REMOVED SOME OF THE WATER AND RE-RAN THE WASHER. THE LEAK WAS REDUCED TO A FEW DROPS. REMOVED THE FLOAT AND SOAKED IT IN VINEGAR TO CLEAN IT AND THIS CURED THE PROBLEM.

The repair for installing the switch would have been very simple except the mounting post on the door was broke off on one side and the mounting screw was too short. Had to cut a small piece of wood to make mounting post the same length as the good post and purchase a longer screw. Once I did this it was a simple to finish the job.

To replace the door latch I took off the inside cover of the door, disconnected the wires from the broken handle, took out the broken pieces and put in the new handle, reconnected the wires and screwed the cover back on! Easy, took 20 minutes tops.

Removed the 11 torx head screws from the inside door panel. Popped out the handle assembly and pulled very hard and wiggled back and forth on the two electrical connectors to remove them from the switch contacts. Reassembled in opposite order. By the way, the plastic holding the lower part of the handle assembly to the door was also chipped away, so after setting the handle assembly into the slot in the front of the door, I stuffed some styrofoam over the body of the handle assembly so that the inside door panel would hold it tight against the front door panel when screwed together. The new handle assembly has been working fine now for a couple of weeks.

It was a piece of cake..... It took me longer to clean the door panel and seal from the last 6 years than to do the handle. The handle took about 10 minutes. VERY EASY...

Using a drill driver I removed the 11 screws from the door liner. Lifted the liner, removed the switch assembly. Carefully pulled at the wire connections with pliers, the small pin locator broke which freed the switch and facilitated an easy removal of the wire connector. On the second switch/wire connection I used a small screwdriver to release the plastic latches and removed that switch with its wires. That allowed easy removal of the wires with the pliers. Inserted the wires in the new assembly, placed it in the door, aligning the screw holes, Using the drill driver, I replaced the eleven screws, being careful to use the longer screws across the top of the door liner. Done.
