I just installed the tub baffles in place by hand and ran the dishwasher and the leak is gone. No old baffles was in the place where they should have been. I had a servece man out and he didn't know why it leaked so I got on your web site and found out about the baffles could be the reason it was leaking. Thats when I look at the area for the baffles and found they were no baffles. Next time I see the service man I will tell him how I fixed the problem. He should pay me and not bill me ( ha ha ). Many thanks for you good service.
Door seal was brittle and flat.Not a hard job to do just having to keep making sure the seal did not pop out on the bottom corners of the door. The seal would tare easy so have to be careful. Before you remove the old seal on the bottom of door there is a 4 inch space between the ends of the seal. Mark the spot with marker so you know where to start placing the new seal.Baffles were orginaly put in place with plummer putty, do not use this. Get GE clear seal is the best will hold forever but will come loose with a good tug. easy to clean out when replacing baffles again. Do not use any sealent when inserting the door seal just push into opening. Make sure you support the door when pushing down on door to put the seal in the slots. The hardest part is the bottom corners the seal tends to slip out I found that if I streached the seal over the openings and continued on and come back to the corners it was easier to make the seal slip in.
Very simple job
I replaced the old baffles with the new left and right baffles. The website noted that 30% of the time the baffle would repair the leak. I replaced both and it did nothing, but I still have a heavy leak. i now have to look at more complex repairs or replacing.
The repair was much easier than I expected. Just remove the 7 screws holding the inside cover of the dishwasher. Pull off the old Door Gasket and fit the new one in. As to the baffles they just pull out and slide the new ones in. This part of the repair took 15-30 minutes. What took the longest was cleaning the various areas from the scum that built up over the years.
When I thought the dishwasher was leaking due to the drainage pipe, the repairman told me it was malformed door hinges instead.I quickly place an order through PartSelect online. With the picture of the parts on the webpage, I was confident that the correct parts were ordered.In less than 2 days, the parts arrived and the dishwasher leakage was resolved.
First I removed old baffles, they were filled with old, moldy, icky black stuff. I tried to clean them, but the ridges made it difficult to get everything out. I ordered new ones, ran the dishwasher without them just to clean out the unit, then installed the new ones, no tools required.
I am a helpless old lady living alone. My dishwasher leaked......not bad at first. I put a towel in front of it. It got worse. I was adding towels each time I ran it. I asked my son to look at it. He said to find out where it was leaking from. I noticed it was coming from the right side. I looked and saw this thing (the real name was corner baffle) that looked kinda used up. I told my son what it was and he said go online and order it. I did. It came I took the old one out. It just lifted out. I cleaned all the debris out from where it sat with a toothbrush and put The new one in. Easy peasy. Don't need a grown son. I can take care of myself.
Replaced the bottom baffles on both sides. Obviously needed replacing. Still leaked. Warmed up door gasket and squeezed with fingers to soften. Lessened the leak. Adjusted the door latch. Stopped the leak.
Removed both baffles and replaced within a couple of minutes. No problem whatsoever in replacing the baffles.
I read the reviews for replacing baffles, which were a little confusing. I then viewed a video on the GE web site on replacing the part. Each baffle took about 2 seconds.
lifted out the 2 old corner baffles, ordered the new parts, set the new ones in their corners. No more leak! SIMPLE!
I examined the door gasket and found it to be worn. So I ordered the new parts and installed. The replacement went easily. There were other persons comments which said center handle on re-installing door inner which was very helpful. After replacing parts I did a test run and no leak...thinjking the problem was solved I went downstairs to double check and saw water dripping. I removed the botton facet of the dishwasher and checked underneath and found a small hose leaking. I ordered and replaced trying to do without removing the dishwasher ..well don't try to cut corners remove it as replacing without doing so is a pain and wasted time so I learned a lot from this experience. I found the comments of others fixes VERY helpful.
Easy out and in repair with OEM parts.
