Question about Kenmore Dishwashers

My dishwasher won't drain, and leaked out onto my hardwood floor!

Originally, my dishwasher had become clogged from the cascaid gel pacs. Once the buildup was removed, it drained fine for awhile...now it's again holding water and it leaked onto my hardwood floor! Could the hose be clogged preventing it from draining?

I ordered a new hose and the problem is fixed! I probably could have just simply taken the old hose off and flushed it out; but the powdered solution, that is supposed to dissolve, had solidified and clogged the hose in several places. Strangely, it had also made like a filmy flap at both openings. Gross!

Periodically (once daily?) leaks up to one quart water onto floor.


This is a very common problem when the condesate drain behind the rear of your freezer wall becomes clogged with ice or other matter. If this is happining only under ther refrigerator it would indicate a drain pipe missing the condensate tray or the tray itself is cracked or leaking.

My dishwasher is leaking onto my kitchen floor.


This is most likely either due to a clog in the drain line or the seal around the sump being at fault. It depends where your unit is leaking from. If you remove the bottom kick plate from the unit you should be able to see where the water is leaking from if it is in the middle of the unit most likely you would have to replace the sump and sump gasket if it is off to the side of the sump then it might be the drain pump being clogged or blocked with something that is makeing it leak. If you have any further questions message me back and Thanks again for using Fixya

Dishwasher not draining


Hi,

Thanks for writing to Fixya.com.

To fix a dishwasher that will not drain, remove any clogs that are blocking the drain line by pouring a paste of baking soda, vinegar and water down the drain, and then pouring boiling water to clear the clog. Repeat the process several times to remove a severely clogged dishwasher drain. Thanks for contacting Fixya and please accept the solution if it has helped you.

Water is leaking from the front of the refrigerator freezer side onto hardwood floors it looks like it is comming from the back what would be the cause


Either the drain line is clogged and the condensation cannot drain to the pan to evaporate, or the door seal is not sealing properly allowing to much air (with humidity) into the unit creating to much condensation and overflowing the pan.


First locate the drain hole and line and make sure they are clean and clear. If you poor an 8 oz glass of water through it, it should drain out to the pan if it is clear.

If you find no clog inspect the door seals for cuts tears or any place that is not sealing properly.

Samsung Fridge Freezer leaking water


hi August.
Cause: A blocked defrost drain is one of the most common causes of water leakage. This happens when food particles or other debris clogs up the drain hose, which can lead to ice buildup and, eventually, water leaking out of the freezer and refrigerator.
3 common refrigerator problems you can easily fix yourself

The freezer drain hose will drain the defrost water into a drip pan at the bottom of the freezer. When this pan becomes full, it will leak water onto the floor. This is a regular maintenance task whenever the freezer defrosts. Empty the drip pan during the defrost cycle.
How to Fix Water Leaking From the Bottom of Freezer

Why is my fridge leaking water on the floor? If the refrigerator is leaking water it's possible that the refrigerator has a clogged or freezing defrost drain. If the defrost drain freezes the defrost water will overflow the drain and drip down to the bottom of the compartment, If enough water accumulates in the bottom it can run out onto the floor.

GE dishwaher leaks with standing water in bottom


Check to make sure regular dish soap did not end up getting inside the dishwasher. This will create a lot of suds that will overflow onto the kitchen floor. Standing water from not draining can mean the drain hose is clogged somewhere or the check valve has something caught in it. If you remove the front kick plate, you will be able to check those.
