If your dishwasher leaks, check these:Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses

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:

1. Lower rack
2. Spray arm
3. Spray arm support
4. 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.

How to fix leak in miele dish washer g1202 svi has F70 fault and small leak into catch pan


The reason the pump keeps running when F70 fualt appears is that the water leak circuit has tripped which causes the dishwasher controller to empty the dishwasher to avoid flooding of the motor and pump area.

The sources of leaks could be many, to start with hoses and water inlet valve. If you feel you can handle such repairs then go ahead otherwise call a technician.

Make sure the mains power is turned off when you are working with the dishwasher internals.

Water leaks from handle and door


You will need to find out where the water is coming in from before you can fix the problem. Water will find the path of least resistance when flowing, you could start out by running a bead of clear silicon chaulk along the edge of the sill on the outside between the sill and concrete. If that does not stop the leak it may be coming in around the trim and running in behind the door jamb the running out inside. Once you chaulk and let it dry us a hose and wet it down real good and see if it leaks.

Hi

The issue is with the water not draining as something might be blocking the drain pump assembly thus the water is leaking. To solve this issue you'll have to take the front lower access panel out and then clean the drain pump assembly completely, also clean the impeller and chopper assembly located at the bottom of the unit. After this is done the issue should be resolved, if not then check the float switch mechanism and make sure that is fine. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Water is coming from the bottom


Take off the panel at the bottem of dishwasher and find leak. If leaking from water supply connection try to tighten it first. If that does not work turn off water under sink and replace warter supply line. You can get a easy to handle braded line at you local hardware store. Replace other leaking parts at www.repairclinic.com.

I have ge monogram dishwasher (zb6400) that leaks at the handle


I've had problems with leaking dishwashers before and it has usually turned out to be the gasket around the door. You might try replacing it - it's usually easy enough to do yourself - and see if that fixes your leak.

Plumbing connection to dishwasher leaking


Remove bottom panel and run dishwasher while monitoring it. A large leak may be from a hose off at pump underneath. Mice can chew holes in hoses too.
