Common Causes of a Dishwasher Leak
What is the most common cause of a dishwasher leaking?
One of the most common reasons a dishwasher might leak is due to a damaged or deteriorated door seal. Also known as a tub gasket, water usually leaks from the lower sides of the door if there is a breach in the seal.
Wrong Dishwasher Detergent
Even if you're rinsing your dishes with soap prior to running them through the dishwasher, the solution on the dishes can bubble up and put pressure against the door seal, causing it to eventually leak. Avoid using dish soap when rinsing dishes to avoid this problem.
This are some of the materials that could be affected by a dishwasher leak:
- Carpet pad
