LG Dishwasher Leaking


I think I've bought my last LG appliance. We have one of their upper-end dishwashers (LDF6920ST) that is barely 2 years old. It is leaking from the bottom of the door. I called them about purchasing a replacement for the rubber gasket on the door. They told me it is not sold separately; I have to buy a complete door assembly for over $200! What a crock.

So I'm finding out. I only hope I don't have more problems - every appliance in my kitchen is an LG. I'm going to try some reverse engineering (do it all the time at work) to try to identify the gasket.

Yes. There is nothing else that could be the problem. I went to Home Depot and looked at the same dishwasher they still sell. The gasket on the floor model was much stiffer and did not move when pressed on. Mine is soft and moves.
