SOURCE: Replacing a drain hose
If you remove the steel left side panel you can see that the drain hose only extends a short way into the machine. Where the hose enters the pan is a white clip that has a small square hole this clip can either be removed by pushing on it from the inside or prying the small square hole with a screwdriver. the drain hose is held in place by a black triangular clip on the plastic drain loop simply pull the clip off and slide the drain hose down then pull it out from the back of the machine.

the element will be housed in a plastic manifold that is located at the centre rear of the d/w base. you may have a resetable thermostat on the top so give it a try first.

There is now a universal dishwasher bracket for just this problem called E-Z DISHWASHER BRACKET. It is available through Braxton-Bragg or ask for it at a local granite fabricator. It is very simple to use.

If your dishwasher leaks, 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:
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.
