    Default GE Quiet Power 3 problems

    Model Number: GHDA485N00CS
    Brand: GE
    Age: 1-5 years

    My GE dishwasher has issues a door latch issue with tthe interlock switch and handle actuator (wont always come on have to repeatedly close the door) also I see it is on a recall for the heater element causing a fire and now it has started leaking out the bottom , I can pull panels to get to my washer and was looking at it from behind and it appears the leak is coming from the tub not by any fittings. Any ideas as to what could cause the leak ? and is it worth fixing ?

    Your model takes two door switches.

    Here's the door switch for your model:
    Interlock Switch WD21X10224 Order now for same day shipping. 365 day return policy.

    Here's the door handle actuator for your model:
    Handle Actuator WD13X10045 Order now for same day shipping. 365 day return policy.

    Access the inside of the door. Slide the spring onto the actuator hinge pin and hook the spring into the hole on the actuator. Snap the actuator into the bracket, making sure the spring arm rests in the channel of the actuator bracket. Install the handle and reassemble the door on the unit.

    For the leak issue I've used this product for washer and dishwasher tub leaks:
    Whirlpool 27615P Sealant (red 3M800) -

    Its expensive but it works because its resistant to washer and dishwasher detergent.
