    Default LDS4821ST LG Dishwasher Leaking - Can you help identify this part?

    Model Number: LDS4821ST
    Brand: LG
    Age: More than 10 years

    This dishwasher is 10 years old - installed during a 2008 kitchen reno - it may have already been a year or two old model sitting in the store at the time, I'm not sure.
    In any event ... It is leaking. Would greatly appreciate if anyone is able to identify what part this is that is leaking. I made a video.

    I doubt it is worth paying to have repaired (vs. buying a new dishwasher) ... but, maybe, if I'm lucky it might be an easy to replace part?

    Thank you for any assistance.

    Hi,

    I can't see inside that bottom casing, your camera isn't getting a good shot of it, but its possibly the sump assembly. You'll need to pull the dishwasher out further to get a better view to pinpoint that leak.

    Here's the sump assembly for your model:

    Thank you so much for your reply. Indeed if it IS that part, then I can't imagine it is worth having a repairman come to replace it on a 10 year old dishwasher.

    I have attached another photo and video, trying to show the area better and maybe you would be able to confirm from the new images that it is the sump assembly? or a pump? It's also now making a not very good sound (grinding noise) so I left the audio in this video so you could hear it.

    Photo is attached.

    Yes, I know the water leaks from there, but I need to know what part is making it leak, what your pointing to is the dishwashers base assembly, that doesn't hold water, so the water leak has to be coming from a part above it, and that's most likely the sump assembly.

    Correct, it would be better to save your repair money for a new dishwasher on a 10 year old machine. BLACK FRIDAY sales have already started here in the USA, I don't know about Canada.
