Hey Samurai,

I have fixed the leak on my dishwasher a few times now. Once, a new gasket/main seal seemed to do the trick, and another time someone stepped on the door of the unit while it was open and caused the unit it to twist which defeated the main seals along the sides of the unit.

Anyway, I did two loads yesterday and now the third is leaking very badly. I'm not sure what happened. I usually do one load a day. I'm afraid that I always have a leak and something got saturated and only started dripping to the floor after the second load. I think the main gasket looks good but I'd appreciate a nice picture of a correctly installed gasket for my unit.

I've done some basic leveling, and the latch seems pretty snug.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Grant

I don't have a purdy pitcher of a correclty installed gasket but if you post some pics of yours, we can probably tell you whether or not it's installed correctumly. Use a free online image hosting service to upload some pics, close n clear, then post the links here so we get some squinties on 'em.
