SOURCE: water inlet leaking

Take the hose off the valve and look inside it. There should be a flat rubber seal inside the hose coupling that seals to the valve. It sounds like you have lost this washer out of the end of the hose. You can pick them up at any hardware store. If they are over 5 years old, I suggest replacing the hoses completely anyway.
If this is not the problem, you may have cross threaded the hose on the valve. If this is the case you may have to change the valve.
Post back if you have any questions.

SOURCE: water-inlet valve cracked

Replace the valve, and as long as you have let the unit sit for 24-36 hours since the water leaked, all should be OK. Make sure you look the unit all over for accumulated water and wipe up with a towel. If water sprayed on the timer, then use a hair dryer on it for 30-45 minutes until it no longer drips any water. Then again, allow 24-36 hours for it to dry out completely before reapplying power.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Water Inlet Valve

If the dishwasher is leaking water the water inlet valve might be defective. If the water inlet valve sticks open, it will allow water to fill the dishwasher continuously. Some customers report that they see clean water filling the bottom of the dishwasher after it's been sitting all night or for a couple of days. If this happens, turn off the water that is supplying the dishwasher. This is normally a valve under the kitchen sink. Then, replace the water inlet valve, it cannot be repaired. The water valve needs at least 20 lbs pressure to shut off properly. If your water pressure is to low replacing the valve may not solve the problem.

Center Wash Arm Assembly

If the dishwasher is leaking water, the center wash arm assembly might be cracked or split. This can allow a jet of water to spray toward the door seal, causing a leak. If a crack or split in the center wash arm assembly is found, replace it. There isn't any glue that will hold the part together inside the dishwasher.





Lower Wash Arm Assembly

If the dishwasher is leaking water the lower wash arm assembly might be defective. If the lower wash arm has a crack or split on the end, it can force water to spray directly toward the lower part of the dishwasher door. Then, the water can be forced under the door and onto the floor. Check the lower wash arm for any cracks or splits and replace it if necessary. Also make sure the screws are tight in the wash arm support. If the screws are loose, water can spray out the side of the pump and cause a leak.





Upper Wash Arm Assembly

If the upper wash arm assembly is broken or cracked it can cause water to spray very forcefully toward the seams of the door, causing a leak.





Door Seal

Every dishwasher door has a door seal. If the dishwasher is leaking water, it might be that the door seal is defective or worn out. Try closing the dishwasher door on a dollar bill and see if the door seal is making good contact all the way around the door. If not, replace the door seal. If the door seal is good or has been replaced and there is still a leak check the door hinges. If the hinges are bent the door will not close properly and the hinges will need to be replaced.





Dishwasher Door Gasket

Every dishwasher door has a door seal. If the dishwasher is leaking water, it might be that the door seal is defective or worn out. Try closing the dishwasher door on a dollar bill and see if the door seal is making good contact all the way around the door. If not, replace the door seal.

My whirlpool model AWM 293/3 is leaking. whenever the water from the water faucet is on, the water leaking everywhere. what can i do about it? thank you


Check your inlet pipe connection to see that it is not loose or leaking, next check the inlet valve solenoid that it is not cracked. If there is nothing wrong with the inlet solenoid the water should not be able to get any further into the machine.

There is a slow drip in the back left corner that looks like its coming from the inlet valve.


HELLO THERE:
water inlet valves do indeed over time begin to fail and leak this is very common
what you will have to do is to turn off the water going to the machine and remove the hoses then remove the back panel of the machine to inspect the water inlet valve
now replace the hoses back on the machine and turn on as you normally would check the hoses from the valve to see if they are cracked or have become loose and are leaking if so replace them and make sure they are tight if the inlet valve itself is leaking this will have to be relplaced ok if you provide me with the make and model number i can get you a price quote for this if needed ok
Best regards MIke

Water leaks under machine when filling


Hello, if your washer leaks only when filling then you have to check these:
Air-gap device- The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.
THE TUBE - There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak
inlet spout- Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tube. If the spout cracks or breaks free of it's mounting, it can cause a leak.
Thanks

Leaks water when filling up.


If the washer is leaking only during the fill and not all the time, the problem is most likely caused by a faulty air gap device, a leaking water inlet valve, or the tube. The air gap is a small device that keeps the washwater from being siphoned into the household water supply. It is usually located mid-way or at the end of the black hose that comes from the water inlet valve. Usually it is made of transluscent plastic. Look for leaks or cracks.

The tube is a rubber tube that runs between either the water inlet valve and either the air gap or the inlet spout. Check for leaks.

The water inlet spout - most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the flow of water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free from it's mounting, it can cause leaks.

These are the things to look for if the washer is only leaking during fill. Hope this helps and best wishes.

Leaking from behind?


If the leak is coming from the back of the washer, the problem may be attributed to either a leaking water inlet valve, or the associated internal hoses that run from the valve to the dispenser. The following link explains how to access the inside of the washer and/or replace the valve (if required):

http://www.fixya.com/support/r600647-replacing_water_inlet_valve_kenmore

If the leak is coming from under the front of the washer, the problem may be the drain pump. These pumps can develop cracks and start leaking. they are non-serviceable and will require replacing is defective. The following link explains how: http://www.fixya.com/support/r397092-replacing_water_pump Inspect all internal hoses and hose connections as well. There are two drain hoses on the water pump, and several small hoses near the water inlet valve. These hoses can develop leaks over time. If the leak appears to be coming from the bottom of the wash tub, you may have a leaking tub seal, or cracked wash tub (worst case scenario). You will see tell-tale signs of water marks on the gearcase (transmission) if this were the case. On the lower right hand side of the wash tub is an air dome with a small rubber air hoses attached. Make sure this hose is still attached and has no leaks. The air hose can slip off the nipple it is attached to and water will begin to pour out of the washer when it starts to fill. This will be an "attention-getting" leak as water will gush everywhere. Double check the air hose just in case. If parts are required, you can purchase from any of the following websites:

    Water tube extension


    it sounds like the water inlet valve is bad. if it slowly leaks it will cause the water to freeze inside the inlet tube extension blocking water from entering the icemaker and it could leak around the extension tube. after freezing solid the tube may have a crack in it as well. so replace the water valve and take out the inlet tube and extension tube and inspect it for cracks and make sure they mate properly (you can glue them if you want but it might make it harder to clean out if you have the same problem again). a clamp or tie strap may help.

    Whirlpool dishwasher leaks everywhere


    CHECK YOUR HOSES FOR CRACKS. BE SURE THEY ARE ATTACHED SECURELY TO THE PUMP OULET.
    THERE IS ALSO A BLACK HOSE FROM THE VALVE THAT GOES UP THE LEFT SIDE TO A VACUUM BREAK ON THE SIDE OF THE TUB. BE SURE THE HOSE HASN'T BEEN DAMAGED OR DISCONNECTED. IF THERE IS SUFFICIENT SUPPLY HOSE, PULL THE DISHWASHER OUT OF IT'S INSTALLATION AND TURN IT ON. WATCH FOR WATER DRIPPING ON THE FLOOR AND TRACE IT BACK TO FIND THE PROBLEM.
