I have had the same problem and finally stumbled upon the answer today!

If you are looking inside your dishwasher, look mid way up the right side wall and there is a valve/hole...if that hole is covered up (e.g. cutting board, ect) it will cause water leakage.

Weird huh? But that recommendation is coming straight from the Bosch headquarters in Canada. I would not have believed it otherwise, but I have read this solution twice, and now myself, have not had a leak since I stopped placing things over that hole! My model is SHU3326UC.

Bosch dishwasher is leaking fresh water from water inlet assembly


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If you have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using a detergent that is causing too much suds. Cut back on the amount of detergent you use, and see if that makes a difference.

Water that spills through the door vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment. you should check the main tub seal, the door latch, the door gasket, the water-inlet valve, and the fill and drain hoses.

Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).

Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses. The pump seal may be defective, too; replacing this is a job for an appliance repairperson.

An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.


Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Hello, my axxis washer gets mold build up on the rubber gasket at the door. i have ordered a new one but do not feel the need to pay $200.00 for the install. can i get instructions to install on my own. i...


Um...have fun. I have replaced two of them.

the way to keep the mold from growing in the future is to leave the door open so that you don't create that closed moist environment.

About the easist way to replace/change is to remove the front of the washer (I have completed w/o doing that but took a bit longer).

Make sure you keep an eye on how the old one comes off as some of them have drain pipes connected.

To remove:
There is a metal ring with a spring attached, simply streatch spring a bit at bottom of door and it should come right off. Do the same for the inside seal, that spring is at the top.

To install:

put the metal ring inside the grove of the gasket, then align gasket on the front. Pick an edge to start working around as you get closer to the top (I pick the lower right hand side to start working around. Make sure that your spring part of the metal ring is at the top where the one you replace was at.) once you get to a point you need to stretch the spring, this is where I use an 90 degree or more pick tool to get into the end of the spring. You need to make sure that you have the seal tight. Start pulling on the spring to stretching it so that can put the rest on. (You need to keep tension on the gasket so that the metal ring does not slide.)

Now to the front.

Just make sure that the spring part is at the bottom. When you took the otherone off, it was at the bottom. It has to go there as there is a groove. Once you get the metal part around the gasket push a bit on the spring and make sure it is in that goove.

To test, open and close your washer door a couple times. At first gently.

Hope this helps as they are a pain in the rear.

Also, here is a nice parts place for all your Bosch parts. www.repairclinic.com

The gasket was only about $75 to my door.

Leaking problem from the door


hi there,
dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, 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 try 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.

Door leak


I had the same problem. On the right side of the tank in Bosch dishwashers there is a steam port. If you place a large object in the right hand edge of the tray, a pressure build up causes the leak. Put large stuff on the left and you should be good to go!

Good luck.
