If you have it hooked up to a garbage disposal you may have forgotten to remove the knockout plug in the disposal,It is made to use with or without a dishwasher so they plug the drain hole and you have to knock it out.

SOURCE: my whirlpool dishwasher is leaking water from the bottom of door

Water is being forced out under the bottom door seal. Is the lower spray arm melted on the bottom? Or is there something directing the water flow toward the bottom of the tub instead of up toward the dishes?

RESET DU1345XTVB


Try to turn the mains power off and on. If this makes no difference then try the hard reset by pressing POTS/ PANs and Heated Dry button consequitively for about 10 secs. All lights should turn on. Then cancel and see if there is any difference.

I just got a new whirlpool dishwasher and it is leaking water from under the cabinet when operating. When I took off the small panel on the bottom of the DW I could see a drip coming from above somewhere...


Hello

Too much detergent can cause over-sudsing, which causes detergent suds and water to leak out of the door. Whirlpool recommends that you use between 0 and 6 grains per gallon for soft to medium water and between 7 and 12 grains per gallon for medium to hard water. Only use fresh detergent, as old detergent can also cause suds. Keep large pots and pans away from the dishwasher door. Water can bounce off of these items and exit through the seal. Always place dishes in the lower rack to prevent the spray arm from ejecting water right onto the door.

The door gaskets create a seal around your door, preventing water from escaping. If the gaskets are brittle or torn, you must replace them. Clean the gaskets if detergent or food particles are stuck to them. Level the cabinet if the dishwasher is unlevel, which can cause water to squeeze through the door. You can raise or lower the dishwasher feet. Tighten the door latch, if loose. Water temperature above 120 degrees Fahrenheit can also cause leaks. Test the water temperature by running the hot water faucet in your kitchen. Insert a waterproof thermometer into the water. Lower the temperature setting on your hot water heater if too warm.

Your Whirlpool dishwasher can also leak if the tub is filling up with too much water. Check the water inlet valve and the float switch. If either one of these components is stuck, the tub overfills. Replace the component. Examine the water inlet valve if water is dripping from this part. The valve has a tube that goes from it to the dishwasher. Replace the tube if split or punctured.

Your dishwasher has a main tub seal. This seal must stay wet, or it becomes brittle and cracks. Unplug the dishwasher, and remove the spray arm, lower rack and impellers. Replace the seal. You have both inlet and drainage hoses on the rear of your machine. These hoses leak if they are split or not connected properly. Replace any damaged or crushed hoses, and tighten the connections if loose. Verify that the washers inside the hoses are installed properly.

Leaks at bottom of door, badly thru wash and rinse. cleaned everything I can think of. have dishes according to use and care guide


Hello there
Door seal
First make sure that the entire seal is clean and has no visable tears or rips in it if it does replace it.
also
If your dishwasher is new--or if you have just replaced a door seal--the door may be difficult to latch for a week or two. If the tightness persists, though, try adjusting the latch, if it's adjustable. If it's not adjustable, there's probably nothing you can do immediately. But try running the dishwasher on the highest heat cycle to help the seal conform to the door. Otherwise, the seal should compress over time.

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.

Washer is overfilling


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.

16 year old whirlpool dishwasher model no. DU8950XY-0


Sounds like it is a bad door seal. Recommend replacing the door seal and making sure the door is shutting square and not bent.
