LG Dishwasher Leaking


I installed a very expensive LG dishwasher a couple of years ago. Recently, water has started to leak from the bottom left corner of the door. Not a lot, and not the same amount every time, but seriously annoying.

The gasket around the door opening looks fine. There is a bulb-type seal across the bottom of the door itself which also looks OK, but in any case, LG does not sell that item separately (great customer support huh?). Is it possible there's something wrong that causes the machine to occasionally overfill and that's why it leaks? Is the door supposed to be truly watertight?

good luck getting anything from LG. LG dishwashers are known for door leaks. I refuse to work on them any more, haven't worked on for a couple years. Usually what I've found was the motorized vent in the door as the problem. Water would leak around that area and run between the inner and outer door making it look like a door leak.

Thanks for the info. What you suggest is certainly something I can check out. It really sucks that after having several houses with builder-grade dishwashers that never leaked, the upscale LG does.

yeah, pricey is not always better. All the dishwahers built today are crap as far as I'm concerned.
