DISHWASHER IS LEAKING A LOT OF WATER

I have had my Hotpoint dishwasher for 18 months and only use a couple of times a week. Yesterday, in mid cycle water started pouring out of the bottom of the dishwasher (front, right side). I pulled out the dishwasher thinking that a hose may be disconnected but was mystified to discover that the back of the machine was bone dry!! When the cycle is stopped the water also stops leaving the machine although the actual machine is still full of water. Any help will be much appreciated

    Have exactly the same problem with my Hotpoint of about the same age. Seems to be all along the front and actually started just minutes into the cycle. Definitely not a door seal problem, have raised the legs (before reading all this) and only temporarily helped. Now have a dishwasher full of water that I cannot move!! HELP!!

Draing Problems:
To fix your draining problem you need to check the air gap(if you have one) , check if there is voltage going to your drain pump during the draining cycle. If there is voltage coming to your water pump and the dishwasher is still not draining then the problem could be a clogged drain hose, a clogged air gap or a bad drain pump. if there is no voltage detedcted on the drain pump during the drain cycle, then it could be a water level-switch/solonioed , wiring, or a control board problem.
Good luck.

I had the same problem with my machine - ie lots of water coming out front about two thirds of the way through the cycle - engineer (local and very reliable) knew as soon as he came in that I had started bying Powerball 5 dishwasher tablets - they produce too much foam (try opening the door during the cycle and see the amount of foam) and it therefore comes out of the overflow parts on the door. I tried Magnum 5 and got the same problem. Now I stick to either Asda's own basic (not the 5) or I buy the Magnum ones and cut them in half. Has never leaked since!

Hi mine was doing the same thing. When we called hotpoint the engineer came out and told us to raise the front legs so the water flows down the drains.

It's seems that the water come out through door's gasket. Your problem is with a blockage drain line (probably filter) or with a defective pump that doesn't drain the water out the machine. Good luck !!

Washer makes grinding noise but isn't doing anything else


Remove the cap off the agitator, flip back the top of the console, remove any nuts keeping the tub in the console. There will be a clutch ring that needs to be replaced. I have an older top load washing machine. I agitates, fills, and drains, but it won't spin. It sounds like it is spinning, but it doesn't. It might be the coupling. That is a 3 piece kit that goes between the transmission and the motor. I found the directions how to do it over the internet, got the part and fixed it myself.

18 month old kitchen aid kudc10fxss leaks water at bottom of door


Someone may've accidentally put liquid dishsoap rather than dishwasher soap into the fill cup. The bubbling will cause lots of foam to rise up above the float-switch without actually raising the switch (shutting off the water supply). Lots of helpers on the web recommended draining, wiping out the foam, pouring in a cup of vinegar and a handful of salt and running the rinse cycle a couple of times. It worked for me!

Hotpoint LFT 228 A dishwasher intermittent draining problems. Sometimes so much water that it leaks, will drain sometimes but then water appears in the filter again, items in dishwasher sometimes come out...


First perform a vinegar cycle wash in the dishwasher. Pour a cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher. Keep the temperature at the highest setting possible and perform a wash cycle.Then start using a dishwasher most probably that would solve the problem. If this does not solve the problem then there must be some parts worn out or faulty creating the problem.

There are many probable causes of failure .

To clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water temperature.

Also check the filter in your dishwasher.Clean the filter if there is accumulation of debris in the filter

Let the suds die down then pour in about 1/4 cup of vegetable oil. Start the machine and let it run a few minutes then open the door and see if it is still sudsing. This will usually kill the suds. Some times I have to repeat again but not usually. Drain the water out and run through a short cycle with regular detergent and you should be good to go again.
