Pull the dishwasher out from the hole slowly till you can get in to access the drain hose. It is probably a clamp that requires a pair of pliers to disengage. Get some towels ready or a shop vac. You may have some spillage at this point. Try partially loosening the clamp and seeing it can be placed more snugly onto the outflow drain pipe. If that doesnt do the job get a ring clamp. Its one of those that is a strap clamp that can be tightened down with a flat head screw driver.
While you're under there check the other input hoses. Did they use plumbers tape on the water supply line. If not remove it and use some and reattach it. The rule about these lines is be firm but dont force. Thats when things go from bad to worse. Make sure you remember to cut off the water source for the water supply line if you need to work on it.

    Keep in mind too that sometimes in older houses (mine is very old so have do deal with a host of problems) the drain pipes were not designed for newer appliances. Washers have to have a 4 inch line generally. Both of my dishwashers are hooked to drain into the disposal. This of course can over flow into the sink. If it does then that could mean your out of the house drain pipe is on the small side. Try sending down some drain cleaner to help the pipes clear out then follow with lemons rinds being ground up in the disposal then washed away. It makes it smell nicer too.

Why is our dishwasher leaking water


There are 4 places it could be leaking. 1) at the connection where the water line connects to the dishwasher. If the dishwasher has been in operation for a long time then this is not likely to be the problem. If this were the problem you would notice water even when the dishwasher was not running. 2) at the drain hose connection. You would notice the water during and shortly after a drain cycle. The drain outlet is usually a hard plastic over which the rubber drain tube is clamped. Either the plastic could crack or the hose could dry out and crack. 3) The seal around the pump could be leaking. 4) The door seal could be leaking, though this in not usually the problem. You can probably determine the problem by removing the bottom panel so that you can see underneath the unit, and then run a cycle. There are usually 2 screws between the door bottom and the lower panel (near the sides of the machine) and 2 more screws at the
bottom of the lower panel (the recessed part of the panel) near the sides. Don't stick your hand under there because you will have power to the unit and a wet floor. That is a bad combination which could be lethal. Just shine a flashlight under and see where the water is leaking from as it runs. Remove power at the circuit breaker before trying to do any service on the unit.

Kenwood dishwasher Comes up E3


I do not know the Kenwood dishwasher, hence I do not know what the E3 error is, but many dishwashers require a sustained pressure of at least 30 psi.
Can you please post the model number of your Kenwood dishwasher?

Fisher & Paykel Dishwasher leaked


From what you describe, drain water from the top drawer is getting into the bottom drawer or waste water from the disposer is backing up into the bottom drawer.

1. Each drawer has its own drain hose. Each hose should terminate at the drain point with a 'Y' adapter.
2. Inspect the drain point (under the sink where the drain pipes are) to make sure this 'Y' adapter is present. (you should see two drain hoses from the DW). If not present, then the DW drain lines are not installed properly. (Someone took a shortcut and installed the 'Y' adapter behind the DW)
3. If terminated properly, make sure the drain hoses extend upward as they leave the drain point.

It is important the drain lines are connected properly to ensure proper drainage from the DW. Consult the installation manual for complete details.

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.
