Kitchenaid dishwasher w10193740a

My dishwasher has water spraying underneath (washer is not running). Assumed a busted supply line but it seems to be fine. Thought the supply fitting might need to be tightened but that didn't seem to help. Misty spray everywhere at bottom toward front of washer. Water dripping off hoses, wires etc. floor is soaked. Turned supply valve off to stop the water. Still can't determine source. Any thoughts? Washer is four or five years old, never had any problems before today.

Reset is probably a key combination, not sure which one though. Would have to refer to the manual. Unplugging it for a while should also reset it. With all the water cycling and overflowing some water may have gotten into an area of the dishwasher where it shouldn't have.

Here's a post
where the user had a problem that sounds a lot like yours. Read the last paragraph to see how they resolved it.

Here's another link for diagrams, manuals and how to guides for your unit.

Hope this helps. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

no it's not normal, you are probably having some cloge in the drain pipe, you could try with a pice of wire to pick it up or hose it down, or use some comercial unplaguners like mr. muscle or something like that, i think that this would do the trick

The fill valve has failed. You can get a rebuild kit for the valve.

Also clean the tiny straainer in the valve.

No water is getting to my dishwasher to wash


I had a dish washer where the solenoid valves busted. It was an easy replacement visible at the front of this machine. Worth a look.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Professional Series runs loud now and the dishes aren't clean when it finishes its cycle.


Check the water supply line for kinks, check bottom strainer/drain inside to remove particles/trash blocking water from exiting to pump washer motor, be sure no items block rotation of washer heads. Good luck.

Hello I have a Quiet Power 3 dishwasher that is leaving food residue on my dishes. The dishwasher is 2.5 years old and all of a sudden this problem is happening. I have not changed dishwasher soap. It...


If you live in a area with hard water, there may be a large buildup of hard water/soap scum in the bottom water reservoir where the pump, filter, and other working parts are. This is located inside the tub, not underneath. This scum/crystallized material can clog the water channels & filter so the water jets don't spray hard enough, as well as overwhelm the filter. Because phosphates were ordered removed from dishwasher detergents, hard water minerals can now react with the soap to create a heavy greasy-feeling scum. That scum can build up in the water lines, arms, bottom reservoir, and filter, providing an endless supply of goo to spray on your dishes. This can be fixed. You need to remove and clean out the spray arms, the filters, and especially the array of parts at the bottom of the tub. I've seen up to 1 cup of coagulated/crystallized scum in the bottom of dishwasher tubs (I know this may be beyond many homeowners, so if you aren't up to this first step, then just try the next/second step but do it 3 times with no dishes in the washer). Once you clean out the scum, then run the washer empty with a completely full detergent cup on the highest temperature setting, extra rinse. Before you start it add to the detergent cup 1 teaspoon of TSP(tri-sodium phosphate), a very powerful phosphate cleaner available at hardware stores. Your washer will now have all scum gone from the inner workings. From now on you must always fill both your detergent and pre-wash cups to the max and use a high temperature water setting, extra rinse. Chemically what you're trying to do is adding so much detergent that the scum-forming reaction is overwhelmed by the dispersant action of the detergent, and the extra heat helps this to be more effective. I am not a fan of vinegar in the wash cycle. Why? In some washers the vinegar fumes can reach the exposed contacts of the printed circuit board or touch pad, corrode them, and then your washer won't work at all, along with being very expensive to fix.

Water left in bottom dishwasher and after resetting to wash will not start unless the water is drained out manually


GE Dishwashers are equipped with an anti-syphon ball that generally dislodges itself and goes into the drain line. To remove it, you'll have to pull it out of it's hole. Turn the supply off and open the kick plate. Remove the supply line from the dishwasher and the drain line free from the air gap. Remove the two screws that hold it to the counter top and pull it out. Remove the lower rack and spray arm. To remove the spary arm you have a 1/4 inch head screw to undo, and on the back of the spary arm is a plastic clip. Use a small screwdriver to depress from the spray arm and pull the spray arm off. There are then two 1/4 inch screws that hold the food screen on and remove the basket. Now, underneath the dishwasher is a large manilla-colored hose with a large hose clamp that must be loosened. Pull this loose and a bit of water as well as the ball will come out. Reattach and drop the ball into the left hole under the basket. Reconnect everything and slide the dishwasher back in. Reinstall drain hose and supply line. Turn on supply. Run and look for leaks.

Dishwasher not cleaning/water sprayers not spraying it appears


I had the same thing recently. Everything appeared fine mechanically, but no water would spray. I inspected the bottom arm as closely as possible and actually found a half melted clear plastic straw inside of it. 30 minutes, tweezers and a small pick eventually got it out and all is fine.
