Hello,

I have GDT655SSJ0SS GE dishwasher. Initially it was not starting. I followed some reset options and started the unit just fine. Somehow the dishwasher spray arm came off and the edges of the arm got burnt and water started leaking from below.
I replaced the spray arm with a new one and cleaned little bit of water left under the filter area.

When started back with new spray arm, the unit is still leaking under the sump pump. I pulled out the dishwasher and checked if it is a hole or leak from the diverter assembly as noted in the thread below. But that doesn't seem to be the issue.

The leak seems to be coming from under the sump pump but not from the diverter assembly. I tried pouring in a glass of water into the unit and I can see water leaking from the white part shown in the picture below. You can see water dripping in one of the pics.
Can someone guide on what could be causing this issue? Is there a seal issue? could it still be diverter assembly?

Hi,

You'll need to pull the dishwasher out and remove the diverter assembly to see if its cracked and leaking.

Here's the diverter assembly for your model:
WD19X25278 Diverter Asm Kit


Here's two members that had that same leak:

Hi Jake, Thanks for your response. I actually got a new diverter assembly part and did pull out dishwasher to replace it based on other posts. But I could not find any crack or even moisture or wetness on that part. The other user post showed the water was leaking for them from under diverter..but in my case, water seems to be directly dripping even before reaching diverter. In my original post, i attached a pic showing where water is dripping from.. I am no expert on these. Do you still think it is diverter assembly?

The only other place it can leak is from the main sump seal. Video included in the main sump seal part link.

Here's the main sump seal for your model:
WD08X22758 Gasket-Sump Manifold

Thanks Jake. I will go ahead and try replacing the diverter assembly this weekend and see if that fixes it. If not, I will order the Gasket and try that. Will keep the post updated.
