Door leaked from lower right corner

First I replaced the soap door grommet -- door still leaked. Then I went for the really expensive part ($40) -- the door gasket. The old one came right out and the new one went right in -- 15 minutes tops -- and the door no longer leaked.

Thanks to all the previous posters for their hints.

Leaking at door

I tried tightening the latch (this had worked once before), but it was already tightened as far as it would go, and door still leaked. So I suspected the gasket, because the old one looked like it had lost its elasticity and was caked with crud. I tried cleaning it in place, but it still leaked. So I ordered a new gasket. However, it was back-ordered, so I tried removing the old gasket and cleaning it. It came out very easliy ( I had expected it to fall apart). Then I cleaned it good under running water, kneading the crud out of it. I also cleaned ou the groove, then I replaced it and that fixed the leak. So I didn't need the new gasket.

My dishwasher was leaking from the bottom right hand corner.

I removed the original gasket, wiped down the area, and installed the new gasket the same way the old one was installed. It was very easy.

Leaking door

After reading repair stories on this website, I decided to order the grommet as well as the seal for my dishwasher door. The seal was easy, just pull the old one out and push the new one in. Make sure the ends were even and that was done. Next came the grommet. 7 screws and I had the plastic off of the door. Then you just flip the plastic panel over and be careful of the wires.(I didn't remove them) Remove two more screws and the latch came out. Just tug the old grommet off and push the new one into place. Line it back up and replace the bolts. Flip the plastic back over and put the other 7 screws back in and you are ready to clean again. While I was in there I took a little extra time to clean some of the buildup out of the sealing surfaces. No more leaks!

Leak at right bottom of door

Thought it was the door gasket. Replaced the gasket, still leaked. Thought it might be the soap dispensor O-ring and/or the tablet dispensor door latch grommet. It turns out that the grommet was bad and the leak was coming from it. Just had to take the door apart, remove two nut screws and take the latch assembly out to replace the grommet. Very simple and only took 10 - 15 minutes to do the job.

Leaky dishwasher door

In front of the dishwasher, my wife and I noticed pooling water when the cycle was running. I was fearing the worst, that the tub was leaking from underneath, or that the supply system was leaking and I was going to have to take the whole sucker out. Not so.

I saw that the door gasket was very hard and corroded from our local hard water. I got to this site and saw that others replaced the dispenser door latch grommet, too, and four bucks was a reasonable add-on to make sure the whole thing was dry later.

The door gasket itself was about a five minute repair. No real tools required, except that a blunt pushing tool is helpful. The only trick was making sure that both sides were relatively equal on the bottom.

The dispenser door latch thingy was a bit more complicated. The driver set I was using fortunately had a Torx bit that fit the plastic door panel screws. I then tried dissembling the door solenoid/release mechanism, but I should have just undone the nuts and taken the whole thing off without taking the small pieces apart. Anyway, I replaced the grommet easily and then got all the small stuff put back together OK.

This was an easy repair without pictures or instructions.

Noticed water leaking from bottom of door.

Assumed that the door gasket needed replacing so I went to Partselect.com. Ordereed the gasket and was about to check out when I noticed the comments from others. Decided to look and was glad I did! Almost everyone said that the gasket on the soap dipenser latch on their door gasket repair was bad also so I ordered the latch gasket too. Parts arrived in only two days. I was amazed.
I started by turning the power off at the panel box, then removing the door gasket and cleaning the gasket groove. Then it was a simple matter of pushing the gasket into place, avoiding stretching or compressing it. Removing the gasket and putting in the new one was only about 3 minutes work - however cleaning the groove took somewhat longer. Then unscrewed the 7 torex screws on the interior door plastic panel. Carefully work the panel free, study the solenoid to see how it pops out and it attached, remove the solenoid and the panel is free of the door.
Examine the interior workings of the soap dispenser to see how it all fits. The remove the two hex head screws with a nut driver and carefully remove the assembly. Notice how the latch gasket fits with its boot in the notch on the latch base. The old boot was completely torn from the gasket base on mine. I cleaned accumulation of soad and crud from the mechanism and from the interior side of the door panel. Put it all back together in reverse order. The cleaning took longer thna the actual repairs.
Thank goodness for the comments - saved me a ton of aggravation!!! Partselect.com rules!

Water leak

From other comments on this site, I learned that 2 people fixed the problem with a new door gasket; 3 fixed the problem by replacing the dispenser latch. I tried the gasket and it helped some (obviously needed replacement anyway) but then learned that the rubber boot around the soap dispenser latch was torn into two pieces. Replaced it and good-to-go.

Leak from bottom right front of dishwasher every time we used it.

Used a pair of needle nose pliers to grab the old gasket and then pulled it out of its channel all the way around (noted the orientation of the old gasket). Discarded the old gasket. With a damp paper tower cleaned the channel to make sure there was nothing to interfere with a good seal. Found the middle of the new gasket and starting in the middle of the door opening and using the same orientation (the back part of the gasket has a couple of ribs on each side - the ribbed part of the gasket goes into the channel first) as the old gasket, used my fingers to push the new gasket into the channel around the door opening making sure there are no kinks, crimps, or bulges. Closed and locked the door overnight. This is an EASY fix, and there has been no leak since.

Leak under front lower right side of dishwasher

Did search for how to fix leak, found PartSelect.com. Many stories about problems with gasket and grommet. Ordered gasket and installed it easily just like the video on PartSelect.com showed. Ran dishwasher - it still leaked. Ordered grommet and installed it following guidance from others on this site (thank you). Ran dishwasher - it still leaked. Searched for other causes. Made sure dishwasher was level and not overfilling. Ran dishwasher - it still leaked. Did another google search. One site said to check for a split in the lower spray arm. Sure enough, that's what I had! Ordered new spray arm and easily removed and replaced the old arm by unscrewing the plastic cap that holds the arm assembly in place and then removing the arm from the plastic clips that hold it in place (it just snaps in and out). Reversed the procedure to put the new arm in. Ran dishwasher - no leaks!

Replaced control panel to change color / fix leak

The tub seal was worn and leaking, this took 5 minutes to replace. I also changed the color of the dishwasher from almond to black by painting the metal panels and replacing the control panel and knob with black ones. Looks like new!
