SOURCE: Drain hose leak

Hi Krazytech here, You will have to remove the cabinet to get to the pump end of the drain hose. First you must remove the top insert a putty knife to open the top lift up then remove screws that hold on the top then remove the screws that hold on the bottom. then you can get to the pump I alway replace the factory spring clamps with a screw hose clamp they are much better.. let me know

There are 2 bolts on the underside of the machine top at the front. Removing them will free the top from the body.

SOURCE: Tricity Bendix AW1400W front load. Water leaks

Ether the washer is over filling or has warn out the seals. If it has been abused (overloaded) it needs serious work. other wise the sensor may be stuck. Try 1/2 cup of vinegar with a load and see if that cleans the sensor travel area past the drum but inside the tub. This is a common problem for an old machine. Best leak is on the door and you may be able to tighten the screws but be careful it could mis aligne it so tighten a small amount and test by closeing the door. Do this at least twice before turning the screws hard.

The drawers should not leak unless there is a problem with the vacuum seal. Try cleaning the edges of the doors and operate. You should feel the vacuum is holding the doors. The seals could be faulty or vacuum system may be faulty.

About not draining completely - a possibility is the common drain hose after the U adapter being clogged. Remove the clamp and pass a flexible wire coat hanger towards the main drain pipe. If both drawers are not draining then it is unlikely the drain hose between the U clamp and the dishwasher is clogged. Also make sure the height of inlet water pipe and drain outlet is as specified in the installation manual

Fisher paykel dishdrawer bottom drawer washes fine leaves water in top drawer


At some point the two drawers individual drain hoses are joined using a "Y' type connector. Check this, and everything beyond this point for restrictions or blockage. It sounds like the bottom drawer is pumping its drain water out normally, but some of that water is backing up to the upper drawer. This is an installation or plumbing problem that is external of the dishdrawers.

LG WM2075CW seems to leak AFTER a load is finished. Wtare found front left under washer and also in the drawers of the pedestal. Anyones best guess?


(1) If the washer is leaking water the drain pump might have a hole or crack. Or, the bearings might be worn out. Replace the drain pump if it is leaking water, they're not repairable.
(2) Check the tub seal for tears or cracks.
(3) Check the door boot seal for condition.
(4) Also check the tub-to-pump drain hose for cracks or tears.
(5) Lastly, check the drain hose for condition.
Replace whichever offending part that is found to be defective.

If you hear the motor sound during drain cycle then it is likely the drain hose is cracked and pump cannot generate enough pressure to empty the drawer. You will have to find the cracked portion of the hose and replace it. It appears the bottom drawer is operating properly.

How to remove powder drawer indesit w1a101


see this causes and fix it. God bless you

Try to identify roughly the area the leak is coming from. This will eleminate some of the following

Hose Connections
Check the rubber washers or replace if the hoses are leaking at the water inlet valve.

Door Seal
This is a common place for leaks. Carefully check by partially pulling seal inside out and check for punctures, pens, pencils... Additionaly if the door is not closing properly it may need a door adjustment. This can easily be done by loosening the hinge bolts on the front panel, adjusting and retighten. The seal is also known to get lightly snagged by zippers or rub by heavy items when close are being removed. This tends to cause the seal to get damaged at the six o'clock position. This is sometimes hardly noticeable but if it is leaking from the bottom of the door replace the door seal.

Water Inlet Valve
If the hose connections are good to the water inlet valve check that water is not leaking from the valve itself it is replace the water inlet valve.

Drain Pump
Check the drain pump housing and all hose connections. The drain pump is behind the lower panel, behind the back panel, and sometimes removal of the front panel. Hoses can be tightened. If hoses or pump housing is leaking replace the pump assembly.

Outer Drum
The outer drum is 2 halves bolted together some washers have a seal between others do not. If the washer is leaking between the seems disassembly of the washer will be necessary. The top panel, console, front panel, door seal, struts. Follow the video for the strut replacement and remove the top springs and the inner and outer drum will pull out the front

Washer leaks from the front - not a major leak but noticeable none the less. Have checked hoses but no problem there. Can you help?


1. Remove the lid of the washing machine by removing 2 screws from behind.(Power and water off etc.) You will probably see rust on the steel above the drawer unit.
2. Remove the drawer.
3. Label all hoses leading to the drawer unit (for re-assembly) and remove the hoses.
4. Remove the drawer unit - a bit fiddly. (2 screws at front of washer at either side of drawer unit need to be removed.)
5. Remove the lid from the drawer unit. Thoroughly wash out the drawer unit. Also wash out the drawer. (I forgot whether the lid can be removed before removing the whole unit from the machine.)
6. There is a thin hose leading from the drawer unit to the drain in the back of the washer - make sure this hose is not blocked. Remove hose and run water through it.
7. Re-assemble everything into the washer.
8. This is the controversial bit: (The drawer unit should be fully installed but the drawer is still removed)
- Silicone seal the gap between the drawer unit and the plastic at the front of the washer, (Seal all round, but especially at the top. It should be possible to do this neatly, Try to get silicone fully into the gap, not just between the two pieces of plastic. (I flexed down the plastic at the top of the drawer unit to get silicone into the gap.
9. Replace the drawer and wait a day before using the machine.

U3 error code


I believe U3 error on your model of dishwasher could also mean a couple of other things like either the drain hose has an obstruction (kink) or the inlet water pressure is not correct.

Hope this helps in finding out what could be the actual reason. T

o find the kink if any, pull the drawer out as much as possible and feel the hose. Might be better if you took the bottom drawer out from the casing and inspect the hose completely. As the problem is limited to upper drawer you do not have to worry about what is under the bottom drawer. Check the water pressure setting is same for both drawers. If so then that is not an issue as bottom drawer is working ok according to your description. See your manual for instruction on how to check the water supply pressure setting on your dishwasher.

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.
