Hi,

 

I just installed this dishwasher today and have a small leak.  It does not leak until the cycle is complete and the door is opened and then I get a small 2 or 3 inch puddle.  I took the front panel off and ran it again and the water is coming from the door vent duct assembly. 

 

Is there something I can do to fix this or should I call for warranty service? 

 

Thanks for your help.

Yes!

Tech came out today to check out my water leak.

 

Before he ran it thru a cycle he said that it is a good idea to wait an hour or two after it's finished before opening the door.  This would let the water disipate

 

After he saw the leak for himself he said there might be a fix for it and he would get back to me.

 

I hope there is a fix.

Tech came out today and replaced the door vent duct assembly and said that the problem may be that the vent fan is not working but that they always go with the cheapest fix first.

 

The dishwasher is still leaking so now I have to be inconvenienced for a third time.  Would it be reasonable to try to return the dishwasher to Lowes and get another brand or should I get the fan replaced?

 Better hurry, I believe their return policy is 30 days...
