Remove bottom panel and run dishwasher while monitoring it. A large leak may be from a hose off at pump underneath. Mice can chew holes in hoses too.

Water leaking from dishwasher into my basement. Help!!!


I see the water leaking out the bottom plastic cover through the two little holes. I do not see water leaking around the top seal. I assume it is coming from a seal on the bottom.
Is there a manual that shows how to take the dishwasher apart to get to the seals? I have the parts sheet which shows the exploded views where the parts are shown. Much appreciated!

Tip

How to Sanitize Your Dishwasher


Step 1 -
Get rid of any odor that may be coming from the plumbing pips your dishwasher shares with the sink. Pour a half of cup of baking soda down each sink drain. Pour cups of vinegar down each drain until all of the baking soda is washed away. After five minutes, run very, very hot water down each of the drains.

Step 2 -
Clean out your garbage disposal. Slice a lemon/lime and put the slices down your disposal drain. Run your disposal with cold water running.

Step 3 -
Pour two cups of vinegar into the dishwasher and let it sit for an hour and then let the dishwasher run through a cycle with the hottest water possible. Repeat the process is that does not clean up all of the build and film. You can use baking soda and bleach instead of vinegar - just sprinkle the baking soda in the bottom of the dishwasher tub, and pour bleach inside the tub as well.

Step 4 - Between washes, pour 1/4 cup of lemon juice into the dishwasher cup and run a short, but complete wash cycle. This will not only deodorize the dishwasher but will also help get rid of any metal build-up.

I purchased a used Miele G880 and it appeared to running good. After a week we noticed water coming through the basement ceiling with the machine not running. We have noticed that the machine is filling...


Hi - yes these units are fitted with what we refer to as waterproof hoses, any leaks from the inlets would leak into the machine.

Now you could check if the connection has been fitted correctly to the taps, secondly if there are any impediments causing the valve to stay slightly open hence the leak.

Unless your water pressure is exceptionally higher than norm which is doubtful. I cannot think of anything else otherwise you will need to replace the inlet unit which are not exactly cheap.

See how you go & will check back in a day or ....

I have a Kenmore quiet guard 3 model: 665.74364k2 and serie F55202295. It is not draining properly. It works fine and cleans the dishes but when it goes to drain it leaks in my basement ceiling and vents.


i thought I responded to this.

make sure the air gap in the kitchen plumbing (if installed is clear). Also check the kitchen drain is not blocked. If using garbage disposer in sink, then make sure it is run before you start the dishwasher.

if you have an air gap vent in the kitchen sink plumbing then make sure it is clear. Also looks like the kitchen drain end is blocked. Pour some caustic soda into the sink drain, wait 10 minutes and run water into the sink.

If you are using insinkerator (garbage disposer) in sink, make sure it is run before you start the dishwasher.

We are getting a strong odor from our two compartment dishwasher, would welcome any suggestions


Get rid of any odor that may be coming from the plumbing pipes your dishwasher shares with the sink. Pour a half a cup of baking soda down each sink drain. Pour cups of vinegar down each drain until all the baking soda is washed away. After 5 minutes, run very, very hot water down each of the drains.


Clean out your garbage disposal. Slice a lemon and put the slices down your disposal drain. Run your disposal with the cold water running. You can use just the lemon or an orange rind if you don't have a whole lemon.

Pour two cups of vinegar into the dishwasher and let it sit for an hour and then let the dishwasher run through a cycle with the hottest water possible. Repeat the process if that does not help. You can use baking soda instead of vinegar - just sprinkle it in the bottom of the dishwasher.


Between washes, pour ¼ cup lemon juice into the dishwasher cup, and run a short but complete wash cycle. Is will not only deodorize the dishwasher, but will also help get rid of any metal build-up

Heavy water leak in basement under fridge


Has this fridge got an ice maker???
Because ice makers require a water supply to make ice.
This could be where your water is coming from.

Water Coming in basement


check out side where the water is going into the basement, aside from the gutter down spout, you going to need pack some earth so that the water will running towards the yard. If it is where the gutter down spout is, then you need to get a gutter extension direct the water some where else.
DO not paint the basement wall, you will have mod. however, you can waterproof the wall when the weather gets to be above 55 degree.
