Where does it appear to be coming from, side, or bottom or where?
from the bottom of door near the corners
do this, take some baby powder and put on the door seal and let it spray 10-15 seconds, then open it and see where the leak is occuring
ok...just a sec
i can't see any on the sides. when i just opened the door, it leaked from the bottom of the control panel. could it leak there and then down the sides to the bottom and appear to be leaking out the bottom?
It cannot leak just from the control panel area, but the latch could be getting wet and it running to the control panel
The door seal is still the cause there
the seal is not on the door.
I know, but it touches the door and prevents water from getting on the outside of the door, specifically where the latch is and is the only way water can get to the control board, BARRING a huge crack in the inner door panel
could the latch be not latching tight enough and causing the leak? or is it the seal?
not really, however some models have an adjustable latch pin, if there is a big screw in it and a oval cutout, you can loosen and slide it back then tighten, this would tighten up the door and prevent having to buy a seal
Based on what we're seeing right now you should replace the door seal
ok. do i just get one from sears, or is there somewhere else to check? also, do you have a cost guess?
if you have a model number I can look it up, but sears is where I would send you, www.searspartsdirect.com
So ..... if you need me to I can, if not just lookup and order from them
Definitly check on the adjustment though
It will save you the cost of a seal
they aren't a lot but 30-50 bucks is the norm.
ok i will give that a try. thanks
Usually they just press out and in
no problem, lemme know if you need anything else, have a great rest of your new years evening
could the vent in the door be leaking?
could the vent be leaking?
could be, but unless it's BAD out of level it would be leaking from the left side not from the control area
it would be literally CROOKED if it were doing that
when i open the door, that's where most of the water is coming from. in that area
I need a model number from you to see which type of vent you have, the leak should be from the bottom of the door not the side if your vent is the issue
and the rest?
665.xxxxxxxx is the model
well never mind
Sears's lookup is down till 6 am central time
We will have to continue this in the am
also, i just rubbed my fingers on the side of the door, and there is no moisture there
I can't lookup sears anywhere but sears unfortunately
ok. how do we do that?
just return to this question, you will get a lin
I will be on around 8:00 central or so
ok. thanks. talk to you then.
I took the vent off last night and found that it was TOTALLY clogged with gunk. I cleaned it out and ran a cycle and it didn't leak anymore. I guess the gunk clogged the draining feature. Any way, it works without leaking now. Thanks for your help.
