GE Dishwasher Leaks while running but No water in the bottom when stopped

1 post in this topic

Hi everyone

I have a GE dishwasher model number GSD980X-68WW. It has started leaking lots of water while running. The door gasket looked old and wornout, and so I replaced it, but it still leaks.

I went through the checklist from the Samurai and couldn't find anything obviously wrong. However now I noticed that when the diskwasher is stopped, the bottom of the dishwasher is absolutely dry. There is no water there (as there was when the dishwasher was working fine), but according to what I read, there should be water there to keep the seals moist. Does this give anyone any clues as to what could be wrong?

So Help! What do I look for next? This washer is around 9 years old, and I am now debating whether it is worth the money to get it professionally fixed, or just pony up for a new one.
