Dishlex Global 300 Dishwasher - ECO Light flashing - Manual indicates incorrect fill level - Manual suggests hold ECO button for 10 Seconds. No success. Have tried pressing and holding buttons - no...


eco light sometimes indicates that water has got into the bottom panel of the machine. A float switch is underneath to protect the machine ( and your kitchen floor from being flooded. ( Either from overfilling or a leak) If you tilt the machine backwards see if any water runs out. If the machine restarts , then you will have sourced the problem. Should the flashing start again later, you may have a water leak underneath. Also check the lower door gasket to make sure its clean. If the gasket is dirty, sometimes water builds up behind the gasket and drips over the front of the tub into the bottom panel underneath causing this symptom. When cleaning the gasket, be very carefull!! The edges of the door at the bottom are razor sharp..

How can I fit a bottom door seal on a Brandt dishwasher please. My dishwasher is leaking but the door seal and gaskets are intact although the sealant which held the gaskets in place has disintegrated....


Hello,
If the bottom seal is definitely worn then it is quite a simple job.The seal is just pushed into a groove at the bottom of the door,as you pull the old one out be very careful as the edge of the groove is like a knife edge,the new seal will push in gently starting from one end and keep pushing into the groove try not to stretch the seal in length.Another thing to check first is check the bottom spray arm for splits on the edges as this could be directing the water onto the door,if there are splits then the arm will need replacing.

Hope this helps.

My kenmore dishwasher is leaking from bottom of door


Inspect the door seal for signs of cracks, breaks or deteriation. If so, replace the seal. But what is it leaking? Water or suds? If suds, you're using too much soap. water--either the seal or the water shut-off switch is letting in too much water, a sure sign of a defective switch.

Leaking at the bottom of the door. Should I replace the gasket. ModelLDS5811ST


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. You should check the main tub seal, the door latch, the door gasket, the water-inlet valve, and the fill and drain hoses.

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

Leaks badly


Most dish washers do not seal at the bottom, the door lip just sits
in front of the tub lip and does not make a real tight seal like a refrigerator door, so unless water is spraying out the top and sides of the door,I would assume that it is either overflowing,or you are using the wrong detergent and it is just foaming to much inside the washer and going over the lip and dripping on the floor. Once the suds stop getting agitated then turn back to water and don't look like suds.
So if you watch the washer during the cycle and the water s only coming from the bottom it is the water level switch inside on right
in the front,looks like a mushroom, once the washer reaches a certain level of water this switch floats up and shuts off the water to stop it from filling anymore. If this seems to be the case just remove the front bottom kick panel and you should be able to see the switch, watch it when the washer is filling,you can also push up on the little arm and the water should shut off. Post back with any questions.

Leaking Door LG WM2277HW


hi my name is joyce
have you tried using he detergent, if not this will make the suds back up in the door and push their way out the bottom of the door even if you have replaced the gasket. the front loaders are very sensitive when it comes to sudsing. if they get to many suds in pump they will give you problem, use about 1 tbs oil in wash ben and run cycle to get rid of suds that may be in pump, then see if this gets rid of problem, if not you may want to call a service tech. let me know if I can help find you someone.

KitchenAid Dishwasher Leaking from under Door


I had a similar problem with a KUDM25SHWH1 dishwasher. Rubber seal looked fine. I found an incredible tip on another fixi it site. One possible problem iss the pump cover screws may have worked loose and is squirting water directly on the door seal. Man that was it! I saw a couple of looses screws and a small portion of the pump cover gasket showing. I loosened the pump top, reset the gasket tightened it all down...no leaks! The pump I refer to is located directly below the spray arm inside the washer. Easy to get to. Another tip was to look for a split sspray arrm that may spray water directly into the door seal.
