Major Appliances/Dishwasher Drips in Right Corner

Advertisement


Question
QUESTION: I have a KitchenAid dishwasher (model KUDS30IXSS2). At the start of the first wash cycle, there is leakage in the front right hand corner (approx. 1-2 tablespoons of water).  After the initial leakage, there appears to be no more leakage as the dishwasher progresses through the remaining wash cycles.  I placed a paper towel on the floor - after the initial leak/drip, the towel remains dry.
The dishwasher is level and there is no soap/other buildup inside.  Also, the gasket is spotless.
Can you think of any reason why I would be getting this leakage?

Thanks in advance

ANSWER: Is it leaking from the door itself or coming from under the dishwasher.  If from underneath, remove the lower cover and locate source.  If from the door double check seal and detergent dispenser.....

QUESTION: The leak is not underneath the dishwasher.  The leak is coming from the door area.

Answer
Are you mechanically inclined?  If so, seperate the the inner door from the outer door.  Activate the door switcha nd run dishwasher with only inner panel in place.  Now you will be able to locate the leak and once known, I can offer a solution.
