SOURCE: Water leaking from bottom and hose not connected

The hose just pushes on. You will have to take the top cover off to rehook up the hoses. There are scres on the bottom, then where the dirty water tank sits, there tabs that you have to unhook, then the cover will come off. Note: the filter inside the ditry water tank, leave a gap at the top to the filter. If you push the filter all the way up, it won't spray or suck up.

SOURCE: Water leaks from tube at the bottom of fridge for water dispenser only

If it is a plastic compression fitting you can tighten each one a little(careful not to tighten them too much cause they can strip out) Use a small crescent wrench with a back up wrench.

SOURCE: Danby counter top dishwasher leaks

This might help with disassembly. Mine was leaking also, but my main problem was no spray. Use my disassembly instructions to remove the pump/motor. If you notice that the leakage is from the pump and not a loose connection, remove the pump cover and apply a thin bead of Blue RTV sealant to the rubber ring. This stopped the leak in my pump.
________________________________
My Danby dishwasher (DW) stopped working. The spray arm stopped spinning completely and very little water was coming out of the arm. When I removed the spray arm (CAUTION: reverse threaded, turn CW to loosen and CCW to tighten) and ran the DW, very little water was spraying out of the pump.

I thought maybe the pump was clogged. So, I followed the recommendations I had seen online about running a few cycles with Vinegar to clear the crud from the pump, but this did not help.

It seemed like the motor was operating, and there were no strange smells to indicate the motor was burned…just no water spraying. So I thought it must be the pump. Before disassembly, I tried to locate a replacement pump. I searched far and wide, both locally and online, and could not locate a replacement pump. So with nothing to lose, I decided to disassemble the DW, take a look and see what I could find. I am glad that I did.

The bottom line is that I disassembled the dishwasher and found that the plastic pump impeller had worked its way off the pump shaft and was not turning. I forced some Teflon plumbers tape over the shaft and forced the impeller back onto the shaft. The impeller has a flat spot to line up with the shaft and I pushed the impeller down on the shaft as far as it would go. I then used a small socket to fit over the shaft and GENTLY tapped the impeller for a final seating. I reassembled the dishwasher and it worked like a charm.

Since I could not find any service manual or instructions online for this DW, I thought I would share my disassembly/reassembly procedure.


Since my instructions are too long to post here, a complete repair document including a link to pictures can be found at:

SOURCE: DGB-600BC

I have had the Cuisinart DGB-600BC for a bit over a year. The coffee grinds, and then sometime during the brewing cycle, it will go, "beep beep, beep beep, beep beep..." on and on.

I think I have traced the problem to the latch on the top lid that you open to access the bean hopper. I believe the latch sticks and doesn't close the lid tightly enough. It will appear to be closed, but the latch isn't all the way in place.

So, there is a small screw on the inside of the latch in the lid. Carefully unscrew this, remove the screw, latch, and the small spring. Remember which way the latch faces.

With a warm damp paper towel, clean the latch and the slot in the lid that the latch goes into. Reassemble, and make sure the screw is not so tight that the latch doesn't move freely.

This should solve your problem.

Water leaks out between coffee brew basket and carafe.


If you are noticing the water that is leaking at the base, I was having the same problem. If you can specifically see that the leak is coming from between the basket and carafe - then you may have a different problem. My problem appears to be that the heating element is shot - it leaks when you start the brewing cycle. I found this out by taking off the bottom and raising up the coffee maker and puting it on a mirror to view what was going on. As soon as the brewing starts and the system is under pressure, water starts forming on the metal tubing part of the heating element. I suppose it's possible that water is leaking down from the tubes, but it looks like it is getting forced out of the metal, so there must be small holes, caused by corrosion. I will check further but I can't find a replacement heating element online so I may have to purchase a new coffee maker.

It leaks from the bottom of the coffee maker


The heating element in these is underneath the hot plate. The water gets to the heater through two short pieces of hose, and sometimes this hose leaks. Sometimes the connection between the hose and the heater leaks also.
If you are so inclined, you can take off the bottom plate and replace the hose pieces, or try to tighten the connections to the heater.

I need to disassemble cuisinart dgb600bc


Screws are Torqux Tamper-proof/Safety screws size T-10. It's a Torqux screw with a raised middle requiring a special Torqux wrench. After looking all over I found a T-Handle set at Sears for $35.

Coffee doesn't brew full pot


Run 2 cups distilled white vinegar and 2 cups water through the system - brew it like it was regular coffee. Then run plain water through the coffemaker to rinse the vinegar out and make sure the decalcification was successful. Repeat as needed. Don't forget to remove the charcoal water filters first.

Filter machine: I suggest that you check the hose connection between the water reservoir and the heating unit - it may not be connected or may have a hole in it or the clamp may have fallen off.
