LG dishwasher leak, AGAIN
« on: September 21, 2009, 09:47:30 PM »
I recently went out to a customers house and resealed the blower assembly with plumbing sealant. (The original problem was a 1/8 cup of water leak per load in the FL corner.) Now, i just got a call from the customer and when they ran it again its back to its old game. Any other recommendations? I'm gonna go back Thursday and reseal it again and also put sealant where the cond. assembly butt's up to the dw stainless door. Please let me know what you guys think. I'm new to the LG scene and any help would be appreciated!

In the manual they recommend teflon tape for the water valve connection but that is pretty standard. not sure if this one is yours: A LG Manual

For anyone who may have this same problem, the first place to start is where the cond. fan assembly female connection goes onto the male vent assembly connection. But, dont stop there. In this case that connection was leaking, AND the wax motor that holds the cond. fan seal closed tight against the inner door was weak and could not make a completely tight seal, causing a small drip until towards the end of the cycle it starts to drip out of the front left corner.
