LG dishwasher is dripping water from vent onto floor

The vent for steam is on the front bottom of the dishwasher and sometimes it drips a lot of water on to the floor.

    Thanks for your inquiry but we fixed the problem by cleaning the gasket (hard water build up). I also saw on another website that our type of LG dishwasher doesn't work as well WITHOUT jetdry. So I refilled the reservoir and it's working great and not leaking anymore.

    -I understand that the model number of this dishwasher is LDF6810ST. Correct?
    -Also, please provide the serial number because with the symptom you are describing, it is important to know which manufacturer version you own.

Good that it is working. Recommend you keep a lose eye on the vent on the bottom of the door panel. This model will probably begin leaking again if it has not been retrofit with a kit that LG developed.
Please open a new problem when it starts to leak and please provide the Model and serial number when you do. Good Luck!

Unit is leaking water from somewhere


Upper drip pan drains clogged, water overflowing onto the floor.

Remove the rear cover of the unit and clean it thoroughly wit a vacuum. Let the unit fully defrost. Use a can of Air duster (for pc's) with the little hose on to clear the drain holes in the upper drip tray. Clean dirty evaporator fins with windex and toothbrush, flush with water. Excess condensate should now drain into the bottom tank instead of overflowing ontot he ground. Be sure to drain the bottom tank thoroughly. With the unit cleaned it should now vent condensate out the warm air duct rather than letting it build up in the unit.

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Well, it seems like the drain pipe or the drain channel is clogged, and the defrost water from the evaporator coils is dripping through the quoted regions, down to the base. Try checking the drain hose/ channel and remove the clogging if any (Blow some moderate temperature air through the channel and check/ remove any permanent clogging If any). Feel free to ask the details, or any question relevant to the trouble..
Concerned.

Order new clips or the dishwasher could fall out onto the floor or even onto your foot.

Bosch SHU4302 DW has a leak in the bottom left. I cleaned the gasket etc. but no luck. Slow leak drip by drip in the wash cycle. This model does not seem to have the steam vent that other Bosch models...


I've got a 4306, and while it never leaked, the bottom door gasket did seem to chemically melt over the years.

I replaced it a few months ago. I don't know that a steam vent is needed as the gasketing system never allows any steam pressure to build. And, if anything, in general, the gaskets are in worse shape now than when the dishwasher was new, so leakage due to steam pressure would have been greater when new.

Steam coming out near bottom of door causing water to pool


Steam coming out is not normal and you should get it serviced soon. While not dangerous, it probably means that water is leaking inside the door panel from the "Hybrid Drying System" that is a feature which LG uses/touts. Other disheashers use a conventional condensing drying system.
The moist air enters through the internal drying system in the door panel, dry air is added from the outside air with the help of a fan and that air is routed though ducting down to the bottom of the door.
That system is clearly broken. If you have more questions on this, please reply. Good luck!

Water dripping outside the collector


I think that there is a 90 degree bend in the outlet on the bottom right front side of the collection tray that gets pluged with dirt, line etc. You can see this when you remove the collection container from the unit. I used a small piece of wire to clean out the hole and now the water goes into the tank and not onto the floor.
