Hello abknarr

If the unit is only 13 months old, then you may still have it under warranty especially if you bought an extended warranty. If you did, please give them a call, Otherwise you may have a crack in the door or seal which only lets out a little water at a time and depending on where the crack is, will depend on what needs to be replaced. Let me know if you need help getting replacement parts.

If water is coming from underneath you need to check first if there is any loose hose, in that case fix the hose back.
When it is a hose you usually get water in large amounts.

If instead water is dripping from the door , you need to replace the door gasket.

Here is the part.
Dishwasher Door Gasket (GASKET)

Sometimes also the latch is faulty and you need to replace both, see SE 154434101 (LATCH & GASKET KIT)


It is part three on the diagram below:

    If the leak is big but intermittent, and cohincides with drain cycle, you should check the drain pump assembly.

    If the leak is shortly after starts filling, check for leaks in the lines to the inlet valve.

    If leak is massive on start check power supply lines.

    If leak is from the door, check door gasket and door latch.

Put some dishwashing liquid on a rag and clean the rubber gasket on the door.

Hi,

If your dishwasher leaks, check these:

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.

Water dripping from the bottom of the door


Hi Iyle Sponheim - From where the leakage is occurring, the washer door needs adjusting done as soon as possible. Either the door gasket is not securely sealing or the door itself is possibly damaged. Connect with a professional to move forward accurately to properly assist with the repairs.

Trickling water noise coming from the bottom of the fridge.


It may be nothing to be concerned about. The water produced during the defrost cycle drains into a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. This water is then evaporated by heat from the refrigerant coils.

You may be hearing this water dripping into the pan from the tubing that carries it from the inside of the refrigerator.

Water coming out of the front door of the dishwasher


Read the installation instructions and make SURE that you have removed all of the packing material from inside and around the door. If you had the bottom apron off to hook it up, some insulation may have poked up into where the bottom of the door seals. Inspect the area that the door seals really carefully - you often can't see the bottom of the bachine side, due to how the door bottom catches drips, but if there's something that is sticking up into the lip when the door closes, that can give you problems. If you can take the bottom skirt off and run the machine, you may be able to see where the problem is coming from. Good Luck! Jim

Dripping water dispencer


Dripping problem is from 2 sources.  Faulty water valve or faulty water connector behind refrigerator.  If the dripping is constant and doesn't seem to end, then it's a faulty water valve.  If the dripping stops after awhile, then the water connector is allowing air into the water line causing the dripping.  Have that connection checked to make sure that it's securely in place.
