kitchen aid model KUDg25SHBL1

 

So this was leaking from the front corners and I replace the door seal and the door seal kit for the bottom of the door and it is still leaking.  I really dont think I did anything wrong.  I was wondering if anyone has run into this or if anyone has any advice for me on what I can do to correct the leak.

 

part numbers 4172127 and 9743590

 

 

Thanks

Michael

Hey Mike - I see this is not a new model.  Was it removed and recently re-installed (kitchen remodel, purchased used,  etc?)  Wondering if the DW is mounted level, square, and plumb in the cabinets.  Pictures would help.

There are a couple of Service Pointers on this model, but I have rarely seen them apply to a model that has been in use for years, I would check the stuff mentioned above first:

 

If a pressure surge occurs during initial start up, the air inlet assembly has been redesigned part# 675828.

 

If water supply temps exceed 150F, install wax motor resister kit part# 675833, but only after above part has been replaced.

Also check the main spray arm for rotation during wash.  If the spray arm gets stuck or has collected debris inside the ports it can constantly spray water at the door corners causing leakage.  This is a great dishwasher.  Pump/motor originally had a five year part warranty.  Uses plenty of water and electricity.  Energy Star runs away screaming.

Water could be leaking in from around the seals on the vent or the dispenser..........Remove the outer door panel and run a 'normal wash'....Get a beer and sit and watch for water leaking, if it does not leak in the first beer , grab another and keep watching ........... :gulp: ..........You didn't have anything to do this Saturday anyway.....

Excuse my brain-fart, but check the torx screws around the pump housing. These tend to work loose and blow water past the seal and out the door:
