Question about Dishwashers

Leaking under dishwasher

There is a spring under the dishwasher next to a float (I believe that is what it is). It leaks when draining during the cycle. I have seen where the water is running down onto the spring. I am not sure exactly where the water is comming from. When it leaks it leaves a puddle of water.

Hi, I have a Maytag Mdb8959sas dishwasher that was leaking during a normal wash cycle. I pulled the dishwasher out from under the counter and saw that it appears to be leaking directly below the point...


I will assume that you have cleaned gasket around door and at washer. Quite often a build up of scale at lower gasket surfaces is all that is causing leak.

Some water is leaking under the dishwasher and on the kitchen floor during the end of the wash cycle.


Does it leak during pump-out only?
If so , must be drain hose .To see everything,remove kick plate to isolate leak. Check hose connections. Fill and drain and observe.Or run a whole cycle with kick plate off to find leak.





Good luck

I have got DWN 38 L Bendix dishwasher, problem is that during the wash cycle water starts to come under the washer. To ,me it looks like it can't take the water out.


If water is collecting under the dishwasher then there could be a few reasons.
1. door gasket is leaking - check for defect and replace if required
2. the wash or drain pump could be leaking water. Seals are not sitting properly or drain hose is cracked.

Dishwasher is leaking in front onto floor. Water level during washing seems too high. Float is not obstructed by any object. What can I do next?


if it seems to be coming from the front it may be the rubber door seal they are not to expensive and not very hard to change if it is leaking under machine it may be the seal that sits on top of motor if water is leaking around motor the seal in the bottom of the washer is damaged

Stays in wash cycle, won't drain and is leaking from underneath the unit


check the float.

it is probably stuck in the down position. lift it up.

my float is an "air trap" type and occasionally needs to be cleaned out. grease and junk gets caught up in it. I just reach under with my finger and scoop it out.

if you are having no luck at all, your float may be cracked or something. If so, and you just want to drain your dishwasher, prop up the float and run the dishwasher for a few minutes until it's drained.

Leaking?


I had this problem, our kenmore dw would leak maybe 1 out of 5 runs. found that the overfill float was so full of crud and calcium that it was weighing it down, and alowing too much water in - thus leaking out the top of the shaft of the float.
You must unlatch the float below the dw, very difficult, try a mirror, you also must remove the micro switch attached to the bottom of the float first. This fixed the problem!

Leaking water on floor during drain cycle


First the source of the leak needs to be identified. pull the machine out from under the counter and remove the left side panel exposing the blue float assembly. Turn the machine on and observe the fill cycle. if water comes out anywhere on the fill mechanism then the inlet valve needs to be replaced. once the machine has filled and begun to cycle cancel the program and drain the unit. observe closly where the leak is happening. a leak during drain usually indicated a leaking drain hose.
