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.

After reading other repair stories, I ordered the big 3, door gasket, grommet and inner door foam insulation strip. For $80 I wasn't going to do the trial and error method. Parts were here in 1 day, and after doing a trial run prior to receiving the parts, new parts were installed in 20 minutes. Don't know which one was the problem, but no more leak. Happy wife, happy life.

I watched the " How to video " that was supplied on your web-site. It was very easy to do and simple to understand. My wife say's I'm her hero because I saved us a $150.00 service call, + the cost of the gasket, which would have cost more if they furnished it. Thanks----

Removed the old strip - cleaned the channel and installed the new gasket. Soooo easy. Unfortunately it's still leaking so now I'm ordering the gasket kit. Should have done it to begin with - like everyone else does!!!

Changed float switch to no avail! Ladeled out the water. Disassembled the entire pump unit inside down to the motor shaft and checked all pieces for trouble. Could find nothing wrong. Now trying to determine if the problem is in the timer or motor.

Watched video, very helpful. Pulled dishwasher out a foot from counter, which was the most difficult part due to tight fit, carpet, and copper tube water connection. Once the washer was out it was easy to replace the linkage and while it was out did both sides.
