Leaky door for Whirlpool Quiet Partner II dishwasher
« on: April 20, 2009, 09:58:17 PM »
The door of my dishwasher is leaky.  When I took off the front panel, the water was spurting from an air vent that goes from the inside of the washer to the inside of the door.  Water spurts up, splashes outside of the area that is supposed to catch it, and runs down the door to the floor.  A piece of plastic to act as a "splashguard would solve the problem, but something else must be up.  Any ideas?

Model Number: DUL200PKB1 icon

Check the obvious things that make water squirt funny: (a clogged set of holes in the spray arm or something preventing them from spinning)
For less than $10 you too can be a repairman :)

Vent Kit for this model-

The picture posted is for the air vent at the top.  The vents I am having the problem with are near the bottom of the door.  They are a molded part of the door, right under the rack that holds the silverware.

Check for a split lower spray arm or for the presence of suds in the tank during the wash.
