Lamona HJA 8630 dishwasher - Water seems to be dripping down from the hot air vent once the dishwasher has been turned off. Resulting in the dishwasher flooding. What could be causing this?

Water seems to be dripping down from the hot air vent once the cycle has finished and the dishwasher has been turned off. It then collects at the bottom and if the water to the dishwasher is not turned off it floods the dishwasher.

SOURCE: Dishwasher flooding

When you say that you tried other solutions.. it's hard to know which you've tried and which you haven't so I will suggest some basics first.. ( if you've tried them, then disregard)...
Have you checked or addressed the following:

  1. Cleaned the drain filter
  2. Checked the drain hose for crimps or restrictions
  3. Sure the drain system ( such as your feed thru the garbage disposal isn't clogged or restricting flow)
  4. Checked your water pump for an obstruction or you can determinbe if it is actually pumping
  5. The feed and returm hose ..to anf from the pump are not clogged, pinched or restricting flow.
These are the basics that you should have examined or confirmed aren't causing the problems you are seeing. One other as well.. are you sure your water inlet valve is completely shutting water from leaking in and over-filling the system? Check these items and you should be able to diagnose where the problem is.. Hope this helps you,

SOURCE: Water flooding onto floor when running.

The most common cause of this is a loose clamp on the pump discharge hose. It could also be a cracked hose, the hose came off (again, loose clamp). Check both ends - where the hose connects to the dishwasher AND where it connects to the sink drain.

Another possible cause is a bad pump seal, although this is less common, and usually open happens when the dishwasher is pretty old.

SOURCE: Water collects in door during drying cycle

The drain hose for the dryer fan is blocked. If you remove the outer door (six Screws three bottom screws down either side) you will see a hose that runs from the bottom of the fan to the top of the detergent dispenser, removed hose and clean this will resolve the problem

My Lamona dishwasher HJA 8650 lower spray arm wont rotate, water is spyaying out and nothing in place to stop it rotating, can you help?


Sounds like the pump that pushes the water up to the spray arm is going south on you.
Check to see if the pump or any of the piping, or sprayer arm jets are clogged.

Admiral upright freezer dripping water inside on top


Hello.
I can help. Once we notice anything different from before we start becoming more aware of small variations. Regarding things on the top shelf warmer than on the bottom, this is always true because, "warm air rises and cold air falls". If you want the top shelf colder turn the thermostat to the next colder setting, always a good idea in the Summer season anyway.

Even though your gasket looks good, a ten year old gasket is not as pliable as a new one resulting in the moisture problem you describe. I would begin by applying a thin coating of vaseline to the gasket once a week for a month. This little trick of the trade will often work. If it doesn't improve the situation do replace the gasket.

Door leaks


This dishwasher has a vent at the bottom left of the door that blows out hot moist air during the drying cycle. Are you sure that you are not getting condensation build up from this vented air that is dripping on your floor?
