Dishwasher is leaking water. Water is puddling


There is a tube on the side of your dishwasher for over flow. It sounds to me like your washer was moved and it banged against that line. You can put some caulking around where it enters the washer and that should be fine. The bottom can be several things. If your washer was removed and reinstalled like say maybe floor installation the supply line, or waste line may not be tight. If your unit has not been moved recently it is most likely the motor housing. Take off the one or two covers on the front bottom of the washer. Place the washer through the cycles and with a flashlight see at what cycle and where the water is coming from. It it appears to be coming from the white housing it's the motor. It's cheaper to just replace the unit as these motor housings are around $150.00. Check out craigslist. Hope this helps.

My Viking just stopped providing water - it goes through all the


You probably have a leak, in the pump housing area below the unit, which is causing the drain pump to run continuously.

Viking Dishwasher Timer Dial not advancing


The timer has given it up.  The motor has probably stopped working or the gears are jammed.  You'll need to obtain and change the timer.  Generally, there are face mounted screws that may or may not be behind some covers.  Remove them to get to the panel that holds the timer.

Leak from a black module, where an arm connects


if your dishwasher leaks check out this: 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.

Dirty dishes


You need to take the spray arm off of the bottom and get down to the filter: there's probably food trapped in the filter somewhere, not able to drain out and it keeps recycling onto the dishes at each cycle. Good luck!

Dishwasher was leaking; now gets "stuck" 3 minutes after starting


You're describing a number of issues related to old age and maintenance. First, you've likely got a mechanical timer that is getting stuck. If the price of replacement is outside your budget for an old warhorse....

Second, in come cases, the timer takes care of water level...in most, however, there is a float or aeneroid level sensor. If it is a float...it may be clogged/jammed with detergent or debris. Located in the wash tub near the front. Clean it up. If it is an aeneroid, it has a tube going from the tub to the lower part which hooks into a 3 inch or so flat sided round item with two wires coming out. With the power off, test it by blowing and sucking on the tube. Blowing into it should open the switched leads ...sucking should hold a 'vacuum'. The pressure of water opens and closes this switch to determine water level.

Eaton viking dishwasher


it may not be the pump.if it leaks when you run a wash cycle then the pump seal may be bad but if it only leaks when you drain it,it seems that its a drain hose/piping connection.
