Leak around bottom left corner of door in GE dishwasher GSM1800JWW & request for instructions for replacing door gasket

by Manage My Life Last activity date:
February 8th, 2011

I have a GSM1800JWW GE dishwasher that has been working correctly and all of a sudden began leaking (gushing) from the bottom left corner of the door during the regular cycle. There was nothing blocking the door to stop it from closing, nor was the machine overloaded when the leak appeared.
I don't think a latch problem is the issue, and believe the problem is likely with the gasket along the bottom of the door or with the actual tub of the machine. Since I have a stainless tub, I thought it was unlikely it was the problem since it can't crack like plastic. Is this correct? Am I correct in assuming that because the door gasket appears worn that this is the source of the problem?
I don't want me repairman to have to come back twice, so if this is likely the problem I will order a replacement gasket. Does the new gasket come with instructions for removing the old one and installing the new one? I did not see any information regarding the gasket on your owner's manual/installation guide for this model that is posted on your site.

Thank you for your help.

The image below may help you with changing the gasket.

Take a look at the spray arm holes. If one is clogged it might cause a spray or water into the corner that might leak.

You can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.
