SOURCE: kitchenaid dishwasher is leaking

depends. take the lower panels off the dishwasher below the door right at the floor. Once this is done you will need a flashlight. If possible lay on the floor with the flashlight and activate the dishwasher. Look for the leak at that point. If it starts leaking in the drain cycle then the impeller is leaking and will need to be replaced. These can be a little pricey so take the model and serial numbers and call an appliance parts house for the cost and it is a little bit of a hassel to replace so only you will know if you want to tackle it yourself or buy a new dishwasher. If is leaking during the rinse cycle then the gasket at the base if the washer (where the motor connects to the dishwasher itself) has gone bad and this is a bugger bear to repair. So it's up to you if you want to repair or replace.

Good luck on repairs Hope I helped you some

SOURCE: my dishwasher leaks. a small puddle is in front

The symptoms you describe, sounds like it could be caused by a worn door seal. Over time, these seals compress to the point where they no longer seal correctly, or food particles and grime get caught between the door and seal and leave small air gaps.

The following link explains some of the common causes of dishwasher leaks and what you can do to prevent them:

The part number for a replacement gasket for the model number you provided is 8268888.

This is a very simple repair. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please post back and let me know. hope this helps you.

My bottom mounted freezer continues to freeze up and leaks a small puddle on the floor


You have a drain hole behind the rear wall of the freezer compartment. You will need to remove the shelves, screws and clean the hole of ice and gunk. here is a video below.

My KitchenAid KBFA25ER Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator freezer is leaking water


just had mine repaired it is a duct bill grommet that is clogged. Found out it is common and easy to repair. My part was w10309238. Took the repair man less than 5 min. You need to pull the frig out, unplug take off the bottom pannel mine was bottom right. A small socket screwdriver is key, look for a funnel running top to bottom, in side there is the duct bill nipple that is clogged with debrie or stuck with stickly stuff like juice. Remove and replace then seal up and defrost for 24 hours by opening the freezer door.

Dehumidifier leaking onto floor.


You should clean off the condensor coils with a vaccum and soft brush. Also, check up inside the area where the condensate drips into the collection reservoir (or goes directly into a hose attachment discharge) to see if something is partially obstructing the water flow and is dripping onto the floor, etc.

You might find that you've got some buildup of dust, dirt, and some other gunk that is mis-directing the water (condesate) that the dehumidifier is drawing out of the air.

Lastly, check the unit to see if it's level, but frankly, I highly doubt that's the issue, based on the 5+ years of good working service for you.

So long as the unit is still running and keeping the humidity in check, (if the above steps don't resolve the issue), I'd continue using it until it finally quits running, but I'd put a plastic boot/shoe mat under it to catch the small puddles of water.

The dehumidifier should draw the small puddles, so it'd be less expensive to get a $4 boot mat than dropping another $240+ for a new unit, as your's seems to be working fine, aside from the occaissional puddle issue.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Leaking water in refrigerator


This is a common problem that happens when the defrost condensate line becomes blocked. Sometime it will leak and freeze inside the freezer and other times it will find a place inside the fresh food compartment. I'm going to add a couple of links below for you to read and review so you can get a better idea of what is happening. On the first link you will need to scroll down a little. Let me know if this is helpful, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Wall a/c is leaking water down log wall and puddling on floor.


When you sealed the holes outside, you trapped the water inside. The unit is designed to let the water run to the bottom of the pan and then go out the holes outside. Try unplugging one of them and see if that fixes the problem. Hope this helps.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care 2 leak after wash cycle


Hello, you may have a small drip from the pump or a small drip from the hose that goes from the pump to the rear of the cabinet. To make sure you will have to run the unit with the cabinet removed. A local service tech can remove the cabinet quicklyand isolate the leak.

Maytag LA212 Toploading Washer - leaks as soon as a load is started. Will continue to leak until washer is stopped. Not a small leak - there is a puddle two days later in the floor below it. Removed...


It appears that from that area the problem may be the water inlet valve or it's connections. See diagram https://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-number/LA212/3048/0153000.html?searchType=modelSearch&q=LA212&searchTerm=LA212
