first replaced the black gasket around the door. I don't think it needed it after looking farther down the list that others had, but, too late. It didn't fix the problem, still leaked, so like others, took apart the door with a screwdriver and found gooey soap along the bottom that had been leaking from the soapcup. Ordered the doorlatch gromet which looked stretched out, and just for good measures, replaced the resevoir o-ring. Really simple. Took about 15 mins. Cleaned up the soap residue, put it back and Voila.....has not leaked. Got our parts in record time too. Cudos to Part-Select. Good site. Thanks to all the replies, they REALLY helped.
First I read the reviews on this problem. I thought it was the door gasket, but after reading what the others had described it seemed to point to the detergent door latch grommet/boot. Because we had wood veneer on the front dishwasher panel and toe kick to match our cabinets when the water leaked it made the wood wet and stained. I installed the original black aluminum panels to the front and kick that I saw where the water was coming from. So it made sense that it wasn't the door gasket. That saved me an extra $41. 00+ . To replace the grommet you remove the 6 screws on the inner door panel. Remove 2 screws that hold the rinse container and door latch assemby. Remove the old latch grommet. Making sure that the new grommet boot or protruded end points to the door latch hook, toward the interior of the dishwasher. I n retrospect I should have purchased the gasket for the rinse container where it protrudes through the panel. It leaked and I had to disassemble everything again to reposition the gasket-a new one that may have had more body to it. Make sure you turn off the power at the circuit breaker and double check as mine was incorrectly marked as the garbage disposal circuit.
Open door and remove the screws holding the interior door to the front frame panel. Than removed the plastic interior from the door. Disconnected the two wires to the dispenser solenoid. Turned it over on the counter and removed the two screws holding the dispenser assembly. Took it out removed the old grommet and installed a new one. Reverse the procedure for reinstall. Took about 20 minutes with the help of my 8yr old curious son.
Thankfully I checked out similar problems that others had experienced with this type of dish washer, which saved quite a bit of time and money. What I thought was a leaking door seal was actually a tiny gommet around the latch for the soap dispenser door. I was able to order the right part and save the extra $$ a door seal would have cost. A cordless drill which acted both as screwdriver and socket driver made the job very easy.
I removed 7 Torx screws from the door and then 2 screws that held the detergent dispenser latch in place and the replaced the grommet, no more leak. I thought about buying a new dishwasher because of the age of mine but decided to at least try this fix even though the shipping cost for the part was more than the cost of the part. So for about $12 dollars I saved the cost of a new machine.
Replaced wax motor. Since the latch grommet seal was nearby I replaced that also. That seal can cause significant door leaks and I had replaced it 5 years ago. It is easier to take the entire assembly off of the door and clean it. Be careful not to break the plastic linkages. To test the repair, you must let the dishwasher go through the entire wash cycle. Simply advancing the timer won't test it as the motor takes 1-2 minutes to fully extend and open the door. The door opens on fill number 3 of 4.
Removed parts as required. Cleaned parts of scale and salt. Installed dispenser door latch grommet. Reversed procedure for installation.Removed old gasket. Note orientation of cross section. Cleaned groove. Installed new gasket. Carfull not to stretch or cut. Use a blunt push "tool".Total time 10-15 minutes.
Read the Partselect.com installation reports for the Door Gasket and the Dispenser Door Latch Grommet both of which caused leaking when they failed. Decided it was the Dispenser Door Latch Grommet. Removed the 7 screws from the inner door, easy. Removed the inner door and turned off Dishwasher circuit breaker and removed wire terminals from soap dispenser motor. removed soap door latch mechanisim 2 screws. pulled off old grommet and replaced with new grommet. Reversed the disassembly and ran the dishwasher. Still leaks, but I knew it was a gamble. I just ordered the Dishwasher Door Gasket. Thanks to Part Select for their website --- Great Find!!
We replaced the gasket first, but it continued to leak. After reading other repair stories, I ordered the dispenser door latch grommet. It was not easy. But be careful. Our first try we did not get the grommet in far enough, so tour it apart again and now there is no leak!
went online read anothers story about what was probably the problem, bought the grommet they said they needed instead of the door seal I thought I needed. $4 versus $46. followed how they did it. saved the price of repairman $50 the price of seal $46 and learned a little about dishwashers. all and all a good day. got part real fast from part select.
I initially thought the leakage problem was due to the black gasket that surrounds the entire tub area, but in reading the testimonials from your customers, I then thought it might be the dispenser door latch. So, I took the door apart as described. The most difficult part was detaching the actual dispenser because the screws were very rusted. On inspection I could see the grommet was very flatened and flimsey. There was also white residue all over the insulation near the dispenser. I ordered the grommet which came within 3 days and put it in. No more leaking!!! I saved a bundle not calling the repair man. I am not even all that mechanically inclined and I had the dishwasher fixed, a load of dishes run and put away before my husband even came home from work. His comment was "Humph," he is not all that happy when I skillfully accomplish manly tasks without his expert assistance :)
Removed old door gasket with screwdrive , installed new gasket. Made sure that gasket receiver was free of material first. Easy fix. Save door latch grommet for later. Thanks.
removed door panel screws (8), and two latch bolts, removed old grommet. Replaced new grommet and reinstalled latch and door panel.
Removed the 7 screws on inside door panel. Then the 2 soap dispenser screws. Replaced seal. Reassemble
