    Default Whirlpool dishwasher mystery leak. Already replaced front seal. Confused

    Model Number: GU2275XTVY
    Brand: Whirlpool
    Age: 1-5 years

    First of all I would like to thank everyone on this site. I have been lurking for a long time but finally had a problem of my own develop.

    I have a whirlpool dishwasher that is 1 1/2 years old (out of warranty) and it developed a mystery leak from the front door. I can see water sitting in the bottom of the door and it sprays out the side a little bit. I already replaced the door seal and checked the front vent. Any other ideas?

    I know that these are prone to leaks. Thank you in advance.

    Check for a cracked spray arm

    I checked for a cracked spray arm and it looks good. There is also a spray arm under the top shelf and that looks good as well. Should I remove the plastic nut that holds the arm on to inspect it further? Would any other pictures help diagnose this issue?

    Ok sounds like your spray arms are correct, does your door catch have an adjustement screw? If you push in your door while your dishwasher is leaking(washing),, does it stop the leak?

    Did you find the problem? I have the same situation.

    - water splashing from under bottom left corner of door.
    - changed door seal.
    - inspected bottom door splash guard and cleaned.
    - water level is below heating element.
    - vent is clear.
    - ran without soap - no sudsing.
    - no visible signs of spray arm problem.
    - pump gasket seems in place.

    any suggestions?

    Default One more option

    I had this problem of leaking i my westinghouse/inglis after I had eliminated the gasket, spray arm, latch etc. The Inglis parts man suggested one more option to check. The problem was that under the spray arm ( need to take it off) were screws ( about 6 or so) that had come loose. Tighten them up and I was fine
