SOURCE: GE Dishwasher Leaks

You can easily screw up the drain diverter arm trying to replace that seal. Repair is difficult. Pump assembly is rather expensive. (especially considering this was not a top of the line model) You would be much better off replacing the dishwasher. The new GE models are much quieter and have eliminated the center tower in almost all models.

SOURCE: leaks water from under dishwasher

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. 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:
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.


Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Check the door gasket for uniform seating. Align it. If this does not solve the problem, contact the service provider. He may change the gasket or do the corrective action.

To whom it may concern, I have a kenmore Elite dish washer. I have a gree light ( Clean ) flaching and it do not work when programming for washing. Can you help? What shuold I do ? Regards ! Michel S.


On the Kenmore 1312 dishwasher, the Clean light will flash with the following problems: a problem with the Overfill Protection Float, no water coming into the dishwasher, or suds/foam in the unit.

First check the float and see if it will move up and down freely. Push it down to release it. This float is at the front right of the dishwasher.

Next make sure that the water valve to the dishwasher is open and you have incoming water pressure. (If the water is blocked at the valve, the inlet valve can be replaced, if needed.)

Finally look to see if there are suds at the bottom of the washer. Check that the rinse aid compartment cover is secure. The arrow should point to Lock. Use dishwasher detergent in the correct amounts (see the package label). Using the wrong type of detergent or too much can cause the problem.

Most Kenmore appliance manuals are available from Manage My Life. Searching for your model will also give you a link to the matching parts diagram and ordering information from Sears Parts Direct. See http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals?intcmpMMHxG_HomexServices_Menu to search for your model. The model number is usually on the frame inside the door of the dishwasher.

I hope this helps.

Dishwasher won't fill with water


Hi

When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

I have a QuietGuard3 that is leaking water onto the floor when it runs. I've resorted to hand washing. What is the problem and how do I fix it?


There are many things that can be wrong.

1. Can be the pump

2 Can be the drain line

3 can be the water inlet / supply line.

It is hard to tell with out you pulling the bottom cover of and running the dishwasher to see where the leak is at. A little more info would be helpful to determine the exact problem.

Also Make and model # would help

I can not get water to go into the Dish washer


You could have a bad timer or a bad water valve. You could also have a wire off the water valve...cut the water and power supply off and remove the inlet hose from the valve. Remove the valve from the unit and check for debris in the valve this also could contribute to you not having water.

Dishwasher doesn't drain fully


Some model 665 DW have a check valve that is attached between the sump and drain hose that may have a blockage..... Remove the drain hose from the long plastic valve then carefully unscrew the check valve from the sump. Inspect for debris.
