    stero dishwasher leaking

    hello, im working on a stero model SUH dishwasher thats about a year old. when the wash pump starts there is a surge of water that comes out the bottom of the dorr, just when it starts but its quite a bit. i have checked for split wash arms which ive learned from the past can spray so much water at the door it can leak but they look fine.
    any ideas ?

    See if the washer sits level and is not over filling.

    thanks for that. I see it says one of the causes of door leakage could be soft start failure. when it blows water out the bottom of the door it happens only when the pump first starts up so im wondering if this may have something to do with it. I see you c an make adjustments to the soft start in the service menu. would adjusting the values up or down make for a softer start? thanks

    to follow up, didnt find any problems in terms of overfilling or the unit out of level to any great degree. So i went into service menu and increased the value of the soft start. It did not leak water out of the bottom of the door at pump start up after this. Did i just get lucky or is this something that happens normally ? thanks again
