Water leaking from botom of Door

I recently purchase a home that has a Kitchenaid Whisper Quiet dishwasher. Upon using it the first time I flooded the kitchen floor. I'm not certain of the cycle but I believe it is while in the drain cycle, water comes pouring out the bottom of the door.

I've check the driain hose and it is not clogged. Water drains from there also.

Thanks

See if float cup is free on bottom of machine so it is not overfilling. take old toothbrush and clear any accumulated soap buildup from bottom of door and gaskets.

I have a Kitchenaide Whisper Quiet Ultima dishwasher. It will come on, but no water comes in. Is there a reset button or something that may be clogged?


Are you able to provide the model no. of your dishwasher please.

NO water coming in could be either due to water inlet solenoid not working, the controller not working or the flood switch being triggered.

Need the actual model no. to confirm likely situation.

My KitchenAid Superba (whisper quiet ultima) started to leak out the front when it is running. Is this an easy repair or should we think of replacing the dishwasher? BTW - we love this dishwasher!


Hello. If the unit is over ten years old, I advise against repair. But if you do wish to consider repair, here are the things to look at

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.

Kitchenaid Whisper Quiet + dishwasher making loud humming noise


Very likely pump motor shaft seal leaks water into bearing casing buildup of rust and consequently noise. I just replaced $112 worth of pump assy and it's back to normal. I would also buy repair manual for $10 on-line to be sure how to disassemble the sump to get to the pump.

KitchenAid Dishwasher Leaking from under Door


I had a similar problem with a KUDM25SHWH1 dishwasher. Rubber seal looked fine. I found an incredible tip on another fixi it site. One possible problem iss the pump cover screws may have worked loose and is squirting water directly on the door seal. Man that was it! I saw a couple of looses screws and a small portion of the pump cover gasket showing. I loosened the pump top, reset the gasket tightened it all down...no leaks! The pump I refer to is located directly below the spray arm inside the washer. Easy to get to. Another tip was to look for a split sspray arrm that may spray water directly into the door seal.
