Question about GE Profile PDW8480JSS Built-in Dishwasher
There is a slow drip that appears to be from just below where the drain is in the dishwaher chamber. The drip is behind the large off-white plastic part that is probably the water pump. I would assume a bad seal or possibly loosening of the attachments where the drain exits the dishwasher/enters the pump, but have not yet removed the dishwaher to fully inspect. The dishwasher is ~2years old. Is this a common complaint? Any ideas on the cause? Is this fixable by a non-specialist?
Creilly, there is a clamp that holds the boot to the sump. It might be where you are leaking. This is not too complicated of a deal. You can either pull the dishwasher out to inspect it or drop the motor and pump assy with the boot attached. I have removed the pump and motor assy. by removing the drain hoses, disconnecting the wire harness. On the inside tub you would have to remove the filter screen and sump filter. The boot that clamps to the pump will be exposed. Push it in, remove the motor hanger, fold the boot over and pull out. As long as you have a couple inches of clearance from the motor bottom to the floor you can do it that way. To answer the first question, this is not a common complaint. Catriver..post back.
