    need a solution for whirlpool built in dishwasher that leaks under the door during operation.What could be the problem. Hose coming in looks okay?

    abhisek33: Thanks for the info, but none of the things you suggested is the problem. I checked the bottom with it open during the wash cycle to see where it was leaking from..hose is good. Connections not leaking . No water on the floor below the dishwasher..It is only at the bottom of the door.in the front of the dishwasher...water level is correct in the tub. So it is possible the seal around the door is bad...it is around 15 years old..Guess it is time to call in a service tech? Thanks again for responding.

    My Kenmore dishwasher is leaking from a hose in the door. Nothing major just an annoying drip. What is this hose? I can't find a schematic anywhere to show me what it is for!!

Hi If the dishwasher leaks, and you know the problem is not related to tub overfilling, the pump, or inlet valve problems, the plumbing connections may be faulty. Most dishwashers are connected to the water supply with metal pipe fittings, and the leak could be at these fittings. If the fittings are threaded, tighten them with an adjustable wrench. If this doesn't work, chances are the threads are stripped or the fitting is cracked or otherwise damaged. In this case, replace the fitting.
Most dishwashers discharge used water through a pipe or a hose connected to the drain or garbage disposer under the kitchen sink. If the drain line is made of flexible hosing, it may have cracked from prolonged exposure to hot water. Examine the hose; if it's damaged, replace it. If the hose is leaking at its connections with the disposer or dishwasher, tighten the fittings or clamps at the connections, or replace the clamps. Also check for water leaks around inlet valves, drain valves, and anywhere you see flexible hoses and hose connections. Leaks at clamps can be stopped by tightening or replacing the clamps. Leaks in hoses can be eliminated by replacing the hoses.
thanks....................

My Dishlex Global 450 leaks, I have narrowed it down to the door seal and have replaced this. It appears to overfill during it's operation BUT not evry time? Sometimes it soaks the floor other times no...


Mine did the same thing. I cleaned the door seals, mostly the bottom one which collected a lot of grime & didn't provide a solid seal.

Hope this helps.

Door of dishwasher is leaking at bottom left corner.


HI. the door seal has been compromised. it could be simply farad or slightly propped open by some sort of debris as well. check the door seal for faults. replace if faults are found.

Also, make sure the door isn't mis-aligned. this will happen over time during heavy usage. re align the door if necessary.

Door leaks


This dishwasher has a vent at the bottom left of the door that blows out hot moist air during the drying cycle. Are you sure that you are not getting condensation build up from this vented air that is dripping on your floor?
