My GE Nautilus dishwasher leaks. Water comes out

My GE Nautilus dishwasher leaks. Water comes out under the door. There is a rubber seal around the door that has, perhaps, dried due to non regular usage. Can the seal be softened or does it need to be replaced.

Dishwasher leaks from the bottom of the door


Hi, if it is leaking around/under the door, it must be the seal around the door. Check to see if the seal needs to be pushed in somewhere or is damaged..
Try running the cycle with no dishes in the washer and see if it leaks, it sounds like a gasket in the door to me and you can also check hose by removing the front panel on floor and check there....


Inspect the door gasket. As it ages, the gasket can crack or become hard, preventing it from sealing completely.
If the gasket appears solid, adjust the door latch so the door seals tightly. Loosen the screw that holds the door latch to the cabinet. Push the latch in slightly and re tighten the screw. Test the door and readjust the latch if necessary.
Replace the gasket if water continues to leak after you've tightened the latch. Most gaskets are held by compression in a groove on the door or on the dishwasher cabinet.

GE DISHWASHER LEAKS AT LEFT CORNER


Have the same dishwasher and happens sometimes to mine when the door doesn't close properly because it is hitting the cabinet front. Try pulling up and forward from the bottom of the door when it is closed. if the bottom comes forward this could make the difference and stop the leak.

Dishwasher leaks when jet dry rinse is added everytime.


If your dishwasher leaks, check these:Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

1. Lower rack
2. Spray arm
3. Spray arm support
4. Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.


Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. 


Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

How to change a GE dishwasher door seal


I had the same exact problem TWICE....second time I'm replacing the dishwasher. There are two rubber boots at the bottom of the door that just sit and the door seal is supposed to seat into these rubber boots but if you take out the boot you will see that it is misshapen and therefore leaking. These boots cost about $10 dollars apiece from GE on line. I replaced them once and same problem. I was going to replace the gasket that runs around the door but it costs $50 and I'm not SURE it will fix the problem. I'm on my way right now to buy a new dishwasher....they're not that expensive compared to pumping money into something that you don't know if it will work. Good Luck.
