Question about Dishwashers

2 Answers

Leaking input to the top of the dishwasher. Pollypro pipe comes up the back and into the top centre of the machine.... This is squirting out water when on wash cycle. Have undone large plastic nut on iside.. that has rubber washer on it... but the input pipe does not seem to have a washer between this and the steel body of the machine... this seems to be causing the water to squirt out... please let me know whether the washer has disintergrated or whether I need to use some bedding compound to reset the polly pipe.... Thanks

    It is the Upper spray arm tube that comes through the top of the Dish washer.. There is a Nut with an O ring on the inside but nothing on the outside.... I think there should be a gasket on it to create a seal between the cabinet and the Spray arm Tube and the Nut with the O ring on ... PLease advise...

By reading Your problem most probably due to disintegration of washer only. Try with new Washer

1. First try to adhere some wax or gumming material where washer is distingrated...if it solves u r problem or there is low squirt of water. so problem is from disintigrates Washer Only. if not
2. Check the polly pipes use some bedding component.

    Ok - just to be clear - you state that the problem pipe you are referring to is at the top of the dishwasher this would not be an input pipe but rather a discharge pipe. The feed or input pipe to a dishwasher is always at the bottom. The reason the discharge pipe is situated higher up the machine is to prevent dirty water entering back into the machine itself. If it is the discharge pipe you are referring to this can be clearly identified by it being a much larger diameter than the input pipe.



    The problem therefore would seem to be related to the pump cycle when the machine is pumping waste water out as opposed to a problem with water coming in. This is important to realise as it puts an entirely different perspective on the issue. Please correct me if I have misunderstood your explanation on this 'input pipe'.



    I could suggest that you simply use some silicone sealant around the problem area (and it may well come to this) but what is confusing me somewhat in your description is how this pipe is connecting to the machine. The waste pipe normally connects directly to the pump outlet and therefore any leak in this area would occur where the pipe actually attaches to the pump outlet and not the machine itself. Silicone or sealant of any type would not be the most appropriate solution if this is what we are dealing with.



    This machine is quite old and I have been unable to turn up any manual in my catalogue that relates to it so I can get a view of the exact system. However I have a list of replacement parts i.e discharge pipe, internal pump and these all seem quite standard issue.



    Perhaps you can help clarify a bit more on these issues before we proceed as I wonder if I am missing something in your initial question.

Anti flood system triggered Favorit 40660 dishwasher


The problem was solved by opening the machine and finding that the bottom "Y" pipe that has 3 inputs is of extremely poor quality and perforates with pin holes allowing a small amount of water to squirt out. This triggers the anti flood and error status lights flash. The outlet pump is activated and machine does not do anything. You need to replace this hose or like I modified it to work from a 32mm Y plastic junction available from most hardware shops. The wire clamps for this was replaced by "jubilee" screw tight clamps.
I worked on a table and also removed the "Brick" placed at the bottom for balance purposes by cutting the back plastic down with a saw. This made the job very easy...

Water leaking from bottom ofoasis top loading machine


you may not be leaking out the bottom. Your stand pipe may be clogged. If the stand pipe has a slight clog in it, the stand pipe will over flow, and the water "looks" as if its leaking from the bottom... These pump faster than your old machine, so the pipe will back up faster... hope that helps

Indesit 18 in. D41 slim line dishwasher


Pull the unit out and tip it carefully to one side. (put some rag down first to mop up the water) then stand the unit back up.
Make sure you can see the back of the unit. put some tissue paper behind the plastic pipe that runs up the back centre of the machine. Turn the unit on and put into cycle. after a few minutes carefully remove the paper if its wet (even a little) the chances are the star shaped lock nut inside is loose or the pipe is damaged. A replacement is readily available and should cost less than a tenner to buy. just make sure you order a new seal as well and get a 20-25mm jubilee clip to replace the one installed.
