Question about Dishwashers

Leaking door Hi The last couple of cycles my dishwasher has been leaking from the left hand side at the front - not sure if it's just under the door but it doesn't seem to be coming from the back as have checked. I am thinking it is the door seals but should I check anything else before ordering them? Thanks

Make sure the unit has been levelled correctly to the floor it's on.

Open the door and look inside at the lower left corner where the door gasket ends. See if there is any type of obstruction or foreign object in that corner. It doesn't take much to cause a door leak. Some door latches can be adjusted tighter. Look at the top door latch system and see if has 2 screws in it. You can sometimes loosen the screws and push the latch inward slightly and re-tighten the screws. That will make the door tighter when latched. Not all dishwashers have adjustable latch systems.

Hi, I have a Maytag Mdb8959sas dishwasher that was leaking during a normal wash cycle. I pulled the dishwasher out from under the counter and saw that it appears to be leaking directly below the point...


I will assume that you have cleaned gasket around door and at washer. Quite often a build up of scale at lower gasket surfaces is all that is causing leak.

I have had water leaking from underneath my dishwasher and have found that on filling, water overflows top of the water inlet unit


My Miele 828 dishwasher started to leak at the front left corner. The leak became worse. I tipped the machine on its side and removed the rubber moulding connecting the base of the drum to the pump. I cleaned it out and refitted it finding two small coins inside. The leak persisted. I took off the top of the machine by unscrewing the two screws on either side and pushing the lid backwards. I switched the machine on and, with a torch could see that the detergent dispenser had detached from the delivery pipe under it. Using advice elsewhere on Fixya I undid the three bolts around the door and the three screws around the detergent dispenser; one is deeply recessed and easily missed. Than I unclipped the drain pipe behind the little door at the bottom left hand corner at the front. The front then hinges out from the left with hinges at the right side making the leaking connection easily accessible. Make sure you get the rubber flange well up the plastic tube as there is no flange on the tube to secure it. A possible design fault but the unit has functioned for ten years before the connection failed.
