Pin hole leak in metal under dishwasher

I have a Kitchen Aid KUDS230BWH0 dishwasher and recently noticed water leaking out onto the floor. I took the front lower panel off and discovered a small rusted out pin hole leak underneath. What is the best approach to repair the leak after it has completely dried out? J-Weld?

Re: Pin hole leak in metal under dishwasher

Difficult to weld stainloess steel. another way is to drill out the hole slightly and fit a small nut and bolt with fibre washers

Rinse aid appears to be leaking

Now, not knowing about the model you mention, I am going to tell you about the same problem I encountered with my dishwasher. We, too, started seeing water on our floor when we were running our "built-in" dishwasher. I checked the water level in the washer and it was not overflowing from being too full. So, I removed the panel at the front bottom of the washer so I could see the workings. First thing I did was to feel around for moisture on connections and other parts. When I got to the bottom of the pump, I did feel moisture. This told me that the pump was leaking. Unfortunately, most manufacturers nowadays use non-metallic metallic components and with mine it was made of plastic. When I removed the pump, I saw a crack in it along a seam (where it is molded together after the internal workings of the pump are in place). The pump turned out to be almost as expensive as a new machine but I was blessed. A friend of my son was remodeling his kitchen and that included a new dishwasher. He gave me his original one (which turned out to be a recently built one by the same manufacturer) and I installed it and haven't had a leak since.
Now, I hope that this does help but as I said, I am not familiar with your free-standing model.

My ge potscrubber 650 is leaking onto the floor in front of the dishwasher. What is the likely problem?

Check you filter and screen .Check whether you need an replacement for them.

If you dishwasher has foam coming out from under the door, then the problem is that dish soap somehow ended up in the dishwasher or excessive rinse aid . It is not recommended to prewash the dishes before loading them into the dishwasher as only a small amount of dish soap can cause the sudsing that you experienced. Only detergent specifically designed for automatic dishwashers such as Electrasol®, Cascade® or Cascade Complete® should be used. Spilling rinse aid while filling the dispenser will cause sudsing also.

To clear the suds from the dishwasher sprinkle several tablespoons of non-dairy coffee creamer over the suds. The fat in the creamer will help break down the bubbles. Wait five minutes for the suds to lessen.

Many pump leaks happen around the seal on the pulley. Some pumps have a weep hole that lets water drip out when this seal begins to go bad. The solution is to rebuild or replace the pump.

You'll want to confirm that the fill hoses are connected and properly tightened. Always use new rubber washers when re-installing the hoses. Take care not to over-tighten the connection. Other leaks may be caused by the drain hose being cracked, or by a leaky connection at the water-inlet valve. Too many suds may cause the appearance of a leak when actually it's just a sudsy overflow. Sometimes a drain hose leak occurs at the end of the hose where it attaches to the washer. If the hose is long enough you can cut the leaky end off and re-clamp the hose back on. Usually though, when a hose begins to leak, it is best to just replace the hose.

At some point the dishwasher leaks onto the floor. what could be the possible problem?

this are the possibilities for the leak :-----
Door gasket loose/torn
Corner gaskets or door baffle/vent gasket
Door lock/latch loose/broken
Split spray arm
Over filling with water...usually the level is just under the heating element is normal
Something leaking through the the soap or rinse agent dispenser gasket, silverware basket button.
Door hinge(s) bent
Wrong soap was sink soap instead of dishwasher soap
Rinse aid being used with mechanically softened water ( makes foam or suds inside the dishwasher )

Leaks from under the unit:
Look for whiting or calcium stain on the motor and pump assembly = motor and pump assembly seal leak...access panel removal help
Hose for upper spray arm split
Fill hose split or fill hose spout air inlet is calcium covered
Drain hose is split
Rusted liner...metal liners only
Fill valve leaking or allowing water to fill all the time
Heating element ends....where they come out through the dishwasher liner
Float or float gasket.

Leaks when being unloaded

I may not have the full solution here, but to avoid (expensive) sub-floor damage, I recommend you do the following.  Assuming that the water is not coming from some dripping between the opened door at the hinge....
-Remove the kick plate that is in the bottom, front of the dishwasher.
Use a flashlight to look for wet flooring.  Run the dishwasher with the kick plate removed, watching for leaks/dripping.  It is possible for a leak to seep under the floor.  If leaking is found, do not ignore it.  Pull the dishwasher, fix the leak or replace the dishwasher.  Remove the first layer of sub-floor under the dishwasher, looking for deeper damage.
You should probably do the same with the carpeted area.  Pull the carpet back and decide if the sub-floor needs to be replaced.  A flooring expert should probably inspect.
Sorry to be such an alarmist, but I have been around floor damage that was unnoticed and ignored.

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. back
