Remove dishwasher from under the cabinet. Turn dishwasher on it's side. Loosen the clamp holding the motor/pump from the pump connect. Loosen the clamp holding the motor to the sump. Carefully remove the motor from the sump and pump connect. Turn the rubber connect counterclockwise several turns till it is disconnected from the bottom of the tub. Mine had a small crack right along the top. You needed to bend the connect to see it.

Check the drainage hose to see if its connected properly. it is located under the unit. it may be loose or, not connected correctly. if the drainage hose is connected properly, this will be a faulty water valve. replace if found to be faulty.

My GE Profile dishwasher is leaking under the tub. Its not a small leak, the water comes out as soon as it starts to fill. What may be the problem?


You have one of two problems here. First of all remove the lower front panel on the dishwasher and get down there with a flash light and check it all over. The water leak is either where the water line is connected to the machine, or around the motor/pump seal. Close the door and turn on the machine. Now you will see exactly where the leak is. IF if is the motor/pump seal you may want to call a technician. If it is where the hot water feeds the dishwasher you may be able to tighten up the connection.

We have a GE Dishwasher Model # GSD 2000 Z02AD - water leaks


If your dishwasher leaks, check these:Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses

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:

1. Lower rack
2. Spray arm
3. Spray arm support
4. 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.
