Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If you have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using a detergent that is causing too much suds. Cut back on the amount of detergent you use, and see if that makes a difference.

Water that spills through the door vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment.

Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).

Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses. The pump seal may be defective, too; replacing this is a job for an appliance repairperson.

An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Frigidaire dishwasher (FDB1100RHC2) is leaking from bottom right corner and it appears there are small hairline cracks on the plastic tub. Is there a way to repair them?


Hello - Do you notice if the dishwasher have deflectors installed in the bottom left and right corners of the tub gasket channel? If so, confirmed that they are properly installed and present. In case that it is not, they may possibly need replacing. However, from what you have described it sounds like the springs or hinges may possibly be damaged, or gasket not sealing properly. I would strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

Dishwasher is beeping every 20 seconds, but not turning on.


There is most likely a problem with one of the door switches. Right where the door latches to the tub there is a small white plunger in the opening of the door which gets pushed down to trip two switches within the door. Disconnect power to the dishwasher and take out the phillips head screws holding the inner and outer door panels together. Check out the plastic cover over the door switches to make sure it has not warped due to heat. The cover is held on by four plastic tabs. The white plunger has a spring on the bottom of it, so watch out for it so you won't lose it. The flat side of the white plunger faces the dishwasher's tub.

Dishwasher leaking from the bottom some place .is it possible that the motor/oump assembly could leak if one of the plastic holders is not in place .


Hello, If you mean one of the plastic holders underneath for the motor & pump, absolutely it could leak there. What make is it by the way ? You didn't say in your post and there are several manufacturers which use such a method of securing and sealing the motor&pump. I'll watch for your reply. macmarkus :)

Two problems: soap cover and seal?


Door leaked because of a plastic bearing ($4.10 part) on the lower arm causing water inside to surge and splash out the vents on the bottom of the door. Soap cover problem was a corroded spring caught on a plastic part inside the door panel. The spring actually broke and now seems to work fine because there was another spring helping to do the same job that is now allowed to work.

Dishwasher tub leaks underneath


Hello. Anything is worth trying! But I would recommend epoxy. It works alot better with plastic and rubber items. Most of the leaks I have found in Kenmore machines are at the water pump. You may want to take a peek while it's running, just stay away from the wires!! Thanks!

Leaking around seal in the center of dishwasher


the white hook peice is just that, a clip to hld down the motor. as you reinstalled you must have twisted or shifted housing to "pop" that clip. no worries easy fix. remove the lower rack and give alook at the motor assy from within ther tub make sure the black gasket is pushed completely down flush with the bottom of the d/w. applying pressure to top of motor assy will push it flush. the motor simply rests in the opening . the clip holds it in place from underneath, unable to find a pic but there a 3 in total under unit.

sounds like the water outlet has a leak - probably a simple 'o'ring problem - these can wear.

Fisher & Paykel Dishwasher leaked


From what you describe, drain water from the top drawer is getting into the bottom drawer or waste water from the disposer is backing up into the bottom drawer.

1. Each drawer has its own drain hose. Each hose should terminate at the drain point with a 'Y' adapter.
2. Inspect the drain point (under the sink where the drain pipes are) to make sure this 'Y' adapter is present. (you should see two drain hoses from the DW). If not present, then the DW drain lines are not installed properly. (Someone took a shortcut and installed the 'Y' adapter behind the DW)
3. If terminated properly, make sure the drain hoses extend upward as they leave the drain point.

It is important the drain lines are connected properly to ensure proper drainage from the DW. Consult the installation manual for complete details.
