see this causes and use the common sense. God bless youDishwasher Not Leveled
This is a very common reason for a leaking dishwasher especially
if this was a new installation. The framing in a dishwasher is made up
of mostly thin sheet metal, so if it is not sitting flat and level
things can get distorted very easily. Watch the video on leveling your dishwasher
This is not very common in most dishwashers. To check this look
for rips and distortion of the seal. If it is ripped or distorted you
will need to replace.
This is a more common place for a leak to develop. This is easy
to check, remove the front panel and carefully inspect around the seal
for water dripping or stainage. If any is found replace the dispenser
Water Inlet Valve
Usually it is the connection to the water inlet valve that ends
up leaking. Check this connection ( there is usually some sort of
adaptor between the valve and supply hose) for leaks. Check the
connection on the back of the water inlet valve also. Ocassionaly a
water inlet valve will leak around the solenoid in this case replace the water inlet valve
Drain / Circulating Pump
Some dishwashers have separate drain and circulating pumps
Some use one pump to serve both purposes. In either case you will need
to check the housings for leaks along with all the connections. Some
dishwashers have a seal that leaks down into the pump . This is easy and
inexpensive to replace. Follow the tutorial on replacing the pump
The door latch
can become loose or misalinged. Check both the striker and the latch.
To adjust the latch you will need to remove the front panel and adjust switch
until properly aligned.
They can cause problems, but this usually only happens from
opening a heavy load of dishes on the door. Occassionaly a broken spring
or cable occurs. You will need to remove the toe kick
and maybe the front panel to inspect.
