ok, water level is well below maybe 2" below heater element, there was some crud on the float, it is moving up and down better, but I dont think it was overflowing that way. As soon as I close the door its a steady stream like peeing (pardon) coming from the bottom, about half that much coming from the top just under the handle area. Again I dont get why (unless it is the door seal) but when i drop the door (even if I just close it for 2 seconds to run) water pours out from the door. I dont mean like inside the door as if the water is above the bottom, I mean like the door has been filled with water. The seal seems to be good as far as tears, rips or hardness but what else could pour water out from everywhere?
Thanks again for any help
