    Dishwasher not Closing correct, bottom tighter than top, causing small leak

    Model Number: gdt580smf2es
    Brand: GE
    Age: 1-5 years

    When I first was given this dishwasher from my sister, the door lock needed to be replaced, and the door would not shut, I replaced the door lock, and tub seal, this helped the door close due to the tub seal being warped, when the new seal came in, I was at last able to close the door and start a cycle. Now there is a small leak, maybe 1 drip a minute, due to the door not closing uniform from top to bottom. It seems like when you close the door the bottom seals first, causing a small bit of pressure, and top of the door have a small gap going up the sides.

    My Question is, with this model, is there any adjustments I can make anywhere to help the door close the way it should.

    It may help to mention my sister said over time when my nephew would help unload it, he would let the door fall and bounce when it opened all the way, possible hardware bent?

    Any knowledge would be greatly appreciated.

    I can Post Pictures if it helps, I am new to Forums.

    A range of causes can be responsible for the issues detected in the dishwasher, However, you can contact Five Star for any home appliance service.
