Dishwasher Seals

  Dragon_Heart 02:44 23 Feb 2011

Is it just this household or are the seals on dishwasher doors prone to fall off.

We've had our newest dishwasher just over 18 months and the door seal has fallen off. This is the second machine this has happened.

It appears to be the fault of how the bottom dish tray slides out past ( rubs against ) the seal.

Is it a common problem ?

Not so far in this household.

Last dishwasher was well over five years with no problems and the current one a couple of ears.

My dishwasher said that her seals are OK at the moment.

I would get in touch with the manufacturer or their trade association, perhaps even Consumer Direct for information. Even your local repair or spare part station might help.

I had a problem with a washing machine a couple of years back (clothes getting powder stains), and contacting the washing machine and powder manufacturer, brought some great information from both, that was not in any instruction books. Even ended up with vouchers for free supplies of regular washing liquids and powder.

Used them myself for washer parts but ...

... the problem is it's the thin metal strip that the seal fits into that's come away. It looks like it's only tack welded in place.

Do you wash them @ 3 am when it's cheap rate electric ?

PS 'polish', have contacted them to see if they do replacement trim.

just a thought do you have the salt set on a high setting

  Dragon_Heart 21:32 25 Feb 2011

...... it's not set on a high setting. Also no signs of 'rust' on ss iner or trim.
