Water into dishwasher tub wont shut off resulting in overflows

I have a ten yr. old kitchenaid superba dishwasher.  I've looked everyone for serial number, etc. but dont see it.  Tell me where to look further and I'll get you a serial number.
Can you guess at why the water wont shut off going into the tub.  If I don't turn supply line off my kitchen floor is flooded.
Many thanks, Susan

your better off just replacing the pump. you probably have broken glass or something else stuck inside the pump. to get to it you're going to have to remove the kick panel from the bottom of the machine. just follow the drain hose and you will see the pump.

There may be a small leak in the pipe at the place of joint which lets small amount of water out and it may be this water that freezes. Have a check of that tube and if necessary get it replaced.

My KitchenAid Superba (whisper quiet ultima) started to leak out the front when it is running. Is this an easy repair or should we think of replacing the dishwasher? BTW - we love this dishwasher!


Hello. If the unit is over ten years old, I advise against repair. But if you do wish to consider repair, here are the things to look at

Main tub seal Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly. The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the: Lower rack Spray arm Spray arm support Wash/drain impellers Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it. Door gasket or seal Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary. The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve. Hoses Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

My kitchenaid dishwasher is not cleaning the dishes on the top rack well. It is nine years old.


If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

Also, There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

**Water temperature Note***

To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

Kitchenaid Superba Dishwasher


gagaweaver, couple of things you want to check here. Check the upper spray arm for any clogged holes or cracks along the edges. Position it in the 12:00 position and run the dishwasher for a little, open the door and verify that it has rotated. Make sure the water entering the dishwasher is min. 120 degrees, use a thermometer. Makes sure that there is no large pans or dishes blocking the upper spray arm from spraying onto the inner door. If all that checks out. You will have to remove the lower spray arm, filter cover and chopper cover to make sure the chopper screen is not coated or plugged up. If it is, it will prevent a good flow of water to the upper spray arm. Catriver..post back.
