Leaking compartment doors

2016 cougar .any ideas how the water gets past the rubber gasket on the pass through compartment doors the top of the hinge has been silicone the water always shows up on the inside lip. No sign of water in the inside. I am thinking about crawling in and shutting the door and have wife hose it down.

Do you have a drip rail/cap at the top of the door? If not, there are several styles available in metal or plastic and one of those should keep water off the hinge (assuming the hinge is at the top of your compartment door). Here's an example of one mounted over a window.

Thatís a good way to find out whatís going on. I get water on the lip that is outside the seal but it doesnít make it past the seal.

Yep crawl inside with a flashlight and have someone special it down. That's how I figured out my leak. It was leaking in through the mounting screws holding the frame of the door in. They were on the outside of the gasket.

I think my wife would think it was funny to lock me in there for awhile. My teenagers would definitely lock me in there!

Leaking compartment doors

The frame joint is at the top of the door frame and allows water to seep into the compartment. The fix is to seal the top of the hinge portion with silicone like shown in this photo:

Is this where you applied silicone? If yes, then the top of the frame may need to be re-sealed.

BTW: I found the leak path by crawling in and having the DW spray the area.
