Water leaking under the dishwasher

  • Customer: Dennis from Tryon NC
  • Difficulty: Really easy

  • Tools Required: Wrench(Adjustable)

I looked under and found that 2 brass nuts that secured the heater element through the base housing of the dishwasher has split down each side of the nut and no longer was tight enough to keep water from leaking around either end of the heater element. I powered down the dishwasher at the circuit breaker and then reached under the dishwasher and pulled away the 2 wires that were attached to each side of the heater element. I removed the two nuts and replaced them with the parts I ordered from partselect.com. I then put the appropriate wires back at the end of the heater element and ran the dishwasher to check for leaks. No leaks... it was fixed.

First I noticed that the old gasket had disintergrated along the bottom. Next I removed the the gasket being careful to observe how it was installed. There are these notched areas of the gasket that belong in the lower corners. I think the notches are designed to help hold the gasket in place and make the gasket bend around the corner. The gasket made closing the door very hard at first but after one wash cycle the fit became much more comfortable. The heat probably made the gasket more pliable. Problem solved.

Bad door gasket-leaking, broken door spring

My door spring had broken and I was going to leave it until the door gasket failed and started leaking. After removing the parts, I got on-line and order what I needed. I found everything easier than I thought. I got the parts a few days later and put the gasket in first. Looking at it, you'll find theres slotted ribs at both ends. Those areas go in the bottom corners because of the "S" curve. Simply push in and voila, you're done. At first the door will be firm to shut, but gets better- NO LEAKS! As far as the door spring...you don't have to remove the whole dishwasher. Simply unscrew the bottom plate under the door and reach in, rehook. Piece of cake. This site is wonderful. All the parts and easy to use.

Unplugged dishwasher, removed the 2 wires clipped to the heating element, removed both cracked nuts, replaced with new nuts from PartSelect, clipped on wires, plugged in and did a test cycle. Based upon service quote from Best Buy, I saved myself $125.00 for just the call out, not including parts and labor.

One the door springs broke

We removed the bottom access panel, and were able to remove the broken spring. As others have suggested, we ordered two new springs, so we could replace them both at the same time. Unlike others, we didn't have to move the dishwasher out a few inches to access the springs. An easier repair than it might have been!

I ordered a new door gasket, wich is not very common for these type of dishwasher anymore, I installed it in less than 15 minutes. I turned the machine on fully loaded and the machine did not leak a single drop. It save me a bundle since I was considering buying a new dishwasher. THANK YOU!!

I removed the 2 screws that hold the dishwasher in so I could pull it out. I found out later I didnt need to do this. then I removed the bottom cover and saw the spring that was broken. I removed the spring, hooked the new one into place and I was done.
This was the easiest repair I ever had to do.

Very easy fix, it's the second time I ordered this perticulsr part and it once again prolonged the life of this dishwasher for just a few dollars. The door seal arrived in just a few very short days and was easily installed with no tools in less than 10 minutes. The web site made locating, ordering, and paying for the part needed extremely once again. Thanks

Unscrewed the dishwasher from counter, located in center front, pulled the dishwasher out, very easy, only about 12 inches, opened the door and saw where the springs went. The spring on the right was missing entirely. Hooked the new springs into place, closed the door, slid the dishwasher back into place. Took about 5 minutes. Thanks to this web site, and the fact that other people had reported how to do the repair. Only cost was that of the springs!

Dishwasher was leaking water on the floor.

I used the scissors to open the bag the gasket came in. From there it was just seeing how the old, worn gasket was seated in the track around the inside of the dishwasher. Pulling the old one out and snapping the new one in the same way. When I was finished, there was about an inch between the two ends at the bottom where the gasket wasn't quite long enough for them to meet. I was a bit concerned seeing the basin fills with water. So I cut an inch off the best part of the old gasket to fill the space. No leaks! It works great and was so easy to do.

pulled the old gasket out, and pushed the new one into the slot where the old one came out. Very simple repair, and I'm a girl!!

Dishwasher was leaking caused by a cracked brass nut attaching to the heating element.

  • Customer: zachary from Mayfield Heights OH
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 3 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
First I removed the two screws that hold the dishwasher in place, I pulled out the dishwasher and on the bottom right located the leak. The two brass nuts that hold the heating element in place. The wires had been rusted to the element so I cut the wires (and later spliced them back together) and unscrewed the brass nuts. I ordered the part after finding them very easily on partselect.com and 2 days later screwed them back on to the dishwasher. Spliced the wires back together and put the dishwasher back in place.

Easy Fix.

I turned the power off at the circuit breaker. I then took the access panel off the dishwasher at the bottom. I pulled the wire off the connector. I used a plied to remove the broken washer and replaced with new part. I put everything back in reverse order and ran the dishwasher. I than checked for leaks over two days while the machine was running and everything was fine. Thank you Parts Select for saving me $500!

Broken dishwasher door spring

  • Customer: Richard from Falls Church VA

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Removed the lower panel (two screws near the floor, two screws with the door open).

Remove screws holding the top of the dishwasher in place.

Remove two screws holding the incoming water switch.

Pull the dishwasher out to access the left side of the dishwasher.

With the door closed remove the spring (replaced both left and right).

Test the motion of the door.

Reverse the process
1. push dishwasher back in
2. Attach water switch bracket
3. Attach top screws that hold the dishwasher in place
4. Replace lower panel
5. Attach screws for lower panel

Test the door motion,

I replaced the gasket a couple of years ago for less than $50. The springs with shipping for less than $25. I wonder how much longer the dishwasher will last. The repairs are easier than putting in a new dishwasher and a whole lot cheaper.

Dishwasher leaking water on my hardwood floor

  • Customer: Gregory from Attleboro MA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set
  • 2 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
I recently bought a vacation home in New Hampshire, and had a very detailed home inspection performed. The dishwasher unit was checked out to be in fine shape. Before moving in, I had all the hardwood floors refinished, including the kitchen, and everything looked great. After moving in and using the dishwasher twice, it developed a major leak coming from the bottom of the unit. "Here goes more money that I don't have, to hire an appliance repairman to fix this leak!" I decided to take the bottom kick panel off the dishwasher to see where the leak was coming from. It was coming from the the connection of the heater element at the bottom of the dishwasher. I found a brass nut had been cracked and wouldn't stay tight any more. I ordered the replacement nut from Partselect, RECEIVED IT THE NEXT DAY!!!!! using regular ground shipping, and installed the new nut using a socket set, and tested the unit. No more leaks!! Partselect saved me at least $150.00 on a service call for a $3.50 part. I'm not the handiest guy around, but even this was easy!
I also scored big points with the wife on my handyman repair! Thanks Partselect!
