Our dishwasher of 10 years has been a little cantankerous as of late.
It started leaking during one of the cycles a while ago, and I thought I had it fixed.
Apparently not. It started leaking again.
So, being the somewhat stubborn man I am, I started taking the dishwasher apart. With the little things. Like the interior vent screen.
And what I discovered was rather nasty.
That’s 10 years of who knows what. Buildup from our well water? Aerated food particles? Who knows.
I scraped out all the stuff.
The stuff had corroded one of the seals inside the door, which was allowing the water to leak into the door and out the machine.
I temporary replaced the seal with some seals I had laying around. Go figure. The hoarder in me.
I also ordered a replacement seal online for a more permanent solution.
I guess maybe I need to do a little more maintenance on the washer one of these days.
And figure out what we might have been drinking from the tap before we installed the house filters a few years ago.
At least the stuff didn’t smell.
Until next time...
