It sounds like your water inlet valve is defective. The part is under $50.00 usually and is fairly easy to replace. It is located under your machine where the water hooks up. It has an electrical plug attached to it. It is usually blue with a metal bracket attached to it.

If you need more help, post another question with the model and serial number of your machine so we know exactly what unit you have.

Good Luck!

Water level too high overflowing the tray and comes out bottom of door


Drain the dishwasher. There's a box in towards the front of the door. It's shaped like an oval. Carefully remove and clean that. Lift it up and down after and listen for clicking. Try running it again.

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.

Please check your overflow float. It may be stuck in the down position. It looks like a little hat or cone in the bottom of the machine. It should move freely up and down. If it is stuck in the down position, your machine may over fill with water and cause your leak. Good luck

Bosch dishwasher fills with water after cycle is completed


Sounds like you need a new water inlet valve. It's not shutting off completely, so water slowly enters the machine even while it isn't running.

Leaks badly


Most dish washers do not seal at the bottom, the door lip just sits
in front of the tub lip and does not make a real tight seal like a refrigerator door, so unless water is spraying out the top and sides of the door,I would assume that it is either overflowing,or you are using the wrong detergent and it is just foaming to much inside the washer and going over the lip and dripping on the floor. Once the suds stop getting agitated then turn back to water and don't look like suds.
So if you watch the washer during the cycle and the water s only coming from the bottom it is the water level switch inside on right
in the front,looks like a mushroom, once the washer reaches a certain level of water this switch floats up and shuts off the water to stop it from filling anymore. If this seems to be the case just remove the front bottom kick panel and you should be able to see the switch, watch it when the washer is filling,you can also push up on the little arm and the water should shut off. Post back with any questions.

GE dishwaher leaks with standing water in bottom


Check to make sure regular dish soap did not end up getting inside the dishwasher. This will create a lot of suds that will overflow onto the kitchen floor. Standing water from not draining can mean the drain hose is clogged somewhere or the check valve has something caught in it. If you remove the front kick plate, you will be able to check those.
