After running a complete wash cycle and after it turns itself off, the dishwasher leaks onto floor. Does'nt leak while running though!
I cleaned the water valve, checked the drain line for holes and cracks, and tightened the plastic drain connection.
Like I said, no leaks while running, just after it shuts down!

Re: Leaking on floor only after shuts down.
Griz, check the vent and see if you have bunch of gunk thats collecting water in it. Sometimes the spray arms are cracked and direct water into the vent. If this happens you will have leaking down the center of the door. Catriver...post back

Good picture! The LE message indicates a leak, but besides leaking on your floor, apparently some water has gotten into the base and triggered the water-leak sensor. Basically, that water must all be sopped out dried out, then the message will go away by itself. You will probably have to pull the dishwasher out to be able to get to the water in the base.
Just installed a CDW60W16 at my daughters house. worked ok empty but as soon as it was loaded the glass icon lit up and beebs. when I turned it over to take a look at the float switch I noticed that the levelling legs were all screwed in so the base of the machine was sitting on the floor. so when the machine was loaded the pressure switch operated as it was being pushed up by the floor. I unscrewed the legs a few turns to allow an air gap between the floor and base of the machine and all working fine now. on checking the installation instructions it only mentions loosening the legs to level it if required which is wasn't. maybe the manual should give instructions to unscrew the legs a few turns to prevent this
With or without a load in the dishwasher, start the wash cycle and watch the whole thing. Inspect around the door to see if water is seeping through the seal. If no water is leaking around the door, then there may be a cracked hose line somewhere else.
You will find that the flood switch will be operating due to the leak, it will most likely be from one of 2 places: 1. Around the door seal, Give it a clean and check for splits/damage, and make sure screws on door hinges are tight. 2. Check the rollers that screw onto the inside of the dishwasher cabinet, The screws on these can come loose and cause water to run down into the base, check they are tight. Hopefully this helps.
1. If the water is going onto the floor during the drain cycle there is either a hole in the hose or it is completely loose from the DW or a hole in the drain assembly under the sink but if that were the case you would have water under the sink also. 2. If it during the wash or rinse cycle then the seals are not sealing (door is not closed all the way or seals are bad) or the float at the right front of the DW is stuck allowing the DW to overfill with water.(you need to open the door and pull the float up and out as you do so push it up and down and listen for a clicking sound.(which indicates it is making contact with the fill solenoid)..if you here the clicking and the float is full of gunk (old soap and such) clean it out and replace it and run it through a cycle and monitor the DW to see if the fill cycle shuts off before the water reaches the overflow point. 3. the only other option is a possible rust through on the DW and or the drain and motor mount in the center of the DW where the food particles and water are drained...is loose and leaking or rusted through...(how old is the DW). 4. Also check to see there are no large particles around the door seal to prevent complete closure and sealing of the door seal. As well as the door latching properly (when closed can the door be moved or pulled open)?
I hope this helps and let me know if not Please relay model number, age and other specifics you feel are pertinent...thank you and please rate me if this helped...thanks again ...the Fang
On this model the vent is open and shut by a wax motor. The vent should be closed tight during the entire wash cycle and the first 6 minutes of the drying cycle. Check the operation, make sure there is not a bunch of gunk restricting it. If you are handy with a meter check the resistance of the motor. It should read approx. 2100ohms. Another reason for leaking at the base is oversudzing. Also check the upper spray arm for cracks or splits shooting water into the vent area. Catriver...post back.
