My dishwasher is leaking from the bottom of the front door. I can't seem to get to the drain filter. Can that be removed? I think there may be a clog in it.


If the leak is from the bottom of the front door than it is most likely the door seal. If the leak is from beneath the unit and appearing to leak out from the front there are many sources for the water.

Check the seal around the door. It may have some residue that has collected prohibiting the seal. The water in the machine actually sits in a tub. The seal on the door prohibits the water leaking as the spray arm rotates.

To test the door seal start the cycle and stop the unit as soon as the machine begins the spray cycle. Open the door and observe that the tub is full but still below the edge. Dry the seal around the door. Place colored paper towels or cloth beneath the door as close to the door seal as possible, Continue with the cycle and observe for water leaks. Stop allow the unit to sit a few seconds open door and observe the seal. You are looking for the location that it is leaking.

If you can confirm that the seal is leaking you can purchase replacement seals, On some models they can be easily replaced.

In my experience I have not seen a filter in the return line. If there is a blocked return hose the unit would not leak. The tub would remain filled after the cycle. There is an overflow switch that prohibits the tub from overfilling if the tub has not emptied between cycles.

I have a kitchenaid dishwasher model KUDMOITJBLO installed as new unit in Oct. 2002 in a new home. Current problem is water coming from front door, bottom as unit starts wash cycle after filling. Leak is...


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.I would start by removing the outer door panel remove the screws around the inner door to do this.Then close the door and start a cycle. Sometimes you can see obvious signs of leaks just by removing the panel too. But if not let it run and see if you see water leaking anywhere. You will see water in the bottom corners its normal. If water is splashing over those corners the check the lower spray arm gor damage or cracks it can cause this problem also make sure the screws under the spray arm are tight. also check the upper arm.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

I have a Hotpoint Super Plus dishwasher 7820. It worked well for a long time. Towards the end of the cycle it leaks a lot of water from the underside of the door, so it seems. I have fitted a new door...


The door seal has to be in a proper position completely around the door (including the bottom area of the door). If not, it will leak. Also, there are two black corner baffles/seals (located in each front corner inside the tub area) that may also be the culprit. Additionally, there may be an issue with the float switch assembly that shuts off the water supply prior to the wash cycle. If the float switch assembly is allowing an extra amount of water in the tub, it will cause a leak.

Door leak on built in LG dishwasher.


Check and make sure the unit is level front to back and side to side.
Check all 3 spray arms for plugged or restricted holes that may be diverting water in the wrong direction..

The water pipes rattle violently in the beginning of the cycle.


My Kenmore 16464 dishwasher caused a buzz in the water pipes at the start of the cycle that I thought was just water hammer. It turned out to be a bad water inlet valve on the dishwasher that has water hoses (inlet and outlet) attached plus has an electrical connector. It is located near the front left underneath the tub. I pulled the dishwaher out and replaced it and all is quiet again. - Jim

Fishcer and Paykel Dishwaher is continually beeping but not starting the cycle. It has water in from previous part finished cycle when the beeping started


You have a leak. When the bottom sensor detects the wetness, it won't allow to start.
Pull out the tube put some small tower unser the tube to dry out water.
Unplag power cord for 24 hrs to let the sensor dry out.
Then you will be able to start.
However if you don't replace the lid seal the leak will happen everytime a cycle starts and you will have the same problem over and over again. Good luck to fix the lid seal.

Asko D3122 dishwasher will not fill with water and will not turn off


you may have water under the dishwaher ... have any plumbing work done lately?

if the dishwaher overflows or leaks it will trip a float switch under the dishwasher... as long as it is triped it will run the drain pump.. and not let any water into the tub...

the water will have to be removed and the leak stopped before it will run a cycle....

Hope this helps if not let me know more about your problem..

Dishwater odor


Lots of ideas,,, Try cycling the dishwasher without dishes on the hottest setting and about 10 miutes into that cycle..stop it and add 2 ups of white vinegar to the water.. let it complete the cycle..

The problem is that standing water with food byproducts will begin to smell as they break down. Like all dishwahers, there is always a small amount of water that remains in the drain system at all times so it is important to clean the filter trap and to periodically air it out or use the white vinegar method..
Hope this helps you...
