Question GE dishwasher leak - not the usual suspects!
Model Number: GSD5400G00WW   Brand: GE   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hello Pros!

I come to you regarding a front door leak on my GE Triton dishwasher model # GSD5400G00WW

About 1/3 way through the run water begins to drip out of the front door area. The total leakage is 2-3 tbsps. Just enough to ruin a hardwood floor if left uncorrected….

I’ve already replaced the main door gasket (gray, runs all the way around) and both the LH and RH corner gaskets (black, sit in the tub). The leak continues.

Any ideas????

Thanks in advance,

Mike

Check the spray arms for anything which may be clogging a hole or a cracked arm.
Sometimes this will cause the water to spray at a weird angle and you will get a leak.
Check that the filter on the bottom of the tub is laying flat.
Remove and clean the float mechanism, sometimes it will get dirty and wick up water causing a leak. Though usually it does not drip out the front.

Your door catch is adjustable on top on the frame under the top of the door!

ok, update time!

denman you were correct, there was something obstructing a hole in the top spray arm (a piece of crab shell?). It's been removed. I carefully examined both spray arms and did not find any cracks.

The "filter" (looks more like a grate in my dishwasher) appears to be normal. I also cleaned the float mechanism...what looked like grease or fat had accumulated in there.

Unfortunately, it's still leaking!

The next time I run it I plan on adjusting the feet a little bit to make it lean back a tad.

Any more ideas ??? (other than go out a buy a new dishwasher )

richappy - yes, now i see the door catch is adjustable.....the mechanism is a little tight now (tighter than before i changed the door gasket).
