    I had a similar problem and tried everything but finally found a solution that works for me.  I live in the country and my well guy has my house water pressure very high.  90psi.  I reduced the water pressure going to my dishwasher by turning the shutoff valve in the plumbing back a bit and it has stopped leaking completely.

Check along the bottom inside of the door if the edge is cut up or has nicks in it from silverware being pulled across it than that is the source of the leak try putting a couple of strips of tape along that edge and run another cycle if it stops leaking or leaks less you have to replace the inside door panel and it will work fine again cost between 20 and 40 dollars depending on where you order it from

What type of dishwasher do you have? Has your kitchen floor flooded? If it has. The tray under dish washer isn't water tight. Moisture creates some unusual problems. Some of newer dish washer the there control panel under the top of door this also create problem especially if the switches are on the top of the door. Another moisture problem. I have repaired a new Electrolux dish was three times in less than 6 months. The floor would flood from the Maytag side load washing machine. The Madam of the house didn't tell me that the washing machine flooded the kitchen floor. No window in the door and sometime fill water solenoid would stick and fill the tube. When they open washing machine door, 12 gallons of water would spill. So I fix both of them. GB...stewbison

Some water is leaking under the dishwasher and on the kitchen floor during the end of the wash cycle.


Does it leak during pump-out only?
If so , must be drain hose .To see everything,remove kick plate to isolate leak. Check hose connections. Fill and drain and observe.Or run a whole cycle with kick plate off to find leak.





Good luck

Too much sink water causes flooding from dishwasher.


If you let it sit with vinegar and it worked after for a while that tells me it may be plugged up with grease. Might be worth while trying to clean it out with Drain O a drain cleaner. Make sure its washed clean after. Grease and dirt builds up after a while in all machines. If vinegar works might be worth cleaning more often.

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.

Dishwasher fills with water when running faucet


The drain hose from the dishwasher should exit the dishwasher, then head up to the nderside of the counter top, before heading back down to connect to the disposal drain connection.

If the drain hose doesn't do this, the dishwasher is improperly installed, and clean dishes risk being contaminated, which can cause people to become ill.

Hotpoint HDA3230Z02WW Dishwasher leak


Hello ajs10172003
Welcome
You said, you have a leak under my dishwasher every time you run a load but can not tell where it is coming from. When you looked under the dishwasher it appeared to be leaking under a white cylinder shaped part. This is where the water was gathering at. Not sure what this is. Maybe someone can shed some light on this.


It is probably the SOLENOID that is leaking.
This opens and closes to control the water coming in and going out!
And it looks like cylinder as you described.
Time to replace that part if this is the case. An easy repair only a $40 part.
call service!
Let me know how it goes!
Huuum,
Please remember to leave a rating!
