Water leakage may be caused by the following:


  • Incorrect detergent may have been used. Use automatic dishwasher detergents, not dish detergents.
  • Door seal could have pulled away. The door seal may have been caught on dishes that extend beyond the sides of the dishwasher rack. Push the seal back into place (located on the inside edge of the dishwasher).
  • Condensation vent may be blocked. This can occur if flexible cutting boards or cookie sheets block the condensation vent (gray circular vent, on the side center of the dishwasher), thus causing the dishwasher to leak from the door instead of venting properly via the condensation vent. Remove anything that is blocking the condensation vent and load flexible boards or sheets on the top rack.
  • Dishwasher may have been improperly installed. The dishwasher "feet" must be leveled properly. If not, gaps at the top of the dishwasher door may occur. In this case, adjust the "feet" accordingly.


Have the installation verified by qualified personnel. They should check the water supply, drainage, leveling and plumbing.
