Whirlpool dishwasher Leaking water


Hello there:
Troubleshooting Leaks
If the dishwasher leaks, and you know the problem is not related to tub overfilling, the pump, or inlet valve problems, the plumbing connections may be faulty. Most dishwashers are connected to the water supply with metal pipe fittings, and the leak could be at these fittings. If the fittings are threaded, tighten them with an adjustable wrench. If this doesn't work, chances are the threads are stripped or the fitting is cracked or otherwise damaged. In this case, replace the fitting.
Most dishwashers discharge used water through a pipe or a hose connected to the drain or garbage disposer under the kitchen sink. If the drain line is made of flexible hosing, it may have cracked from prolonged exposure to hot water. Examine the hose; if it's damaged, replace it. If the hose is leaking at its connections with the disposer or dishwasher, tighten the fittings or clamps at the connections, or replace the clamps. Also check for water leaks around inlet valves, drain valves, and anywhere you see flexible hoses and hose connections. Leaks at clamps can be stopped by tightening or replacing the clamps. Leaks in hoses can be eliminated by replacing the hoses.
I HOPE THAT YOU FIND THIS INFORMATION VERY HELPFUL

Tank wont refill after flushing.


The ball **** controls the water flow into the tank when flushed. If the float is stuck in the up position, the water will not fill the tank or the valve could be defective. If after pushing down the float and observing little or no water you need to replace the ball **** or the water valve is turned off. Turn the water off at the shutoff valve. Put a towel under the water supply hose and unscrew the water supply hose at the bottom of the ball ****. Drain any excess water at the bottom of the tank using a shop towel or paper towels ringing them out when they become saturated with water. Remove the ball **** and replace the old one with a new one available from a hardware store. Make sure to follow instructions on washer placement to avoid leaks. Replace the water supply hose and tighten snugly and be careful not to over tighten to crack any plastic. Turn on the water shutoff valve and adjust the float so the water stops at the tank water line.

I have a ge washer wpsr3120w0aa that leaks water when rinsing


Servicing Water Inlet ValvesIf the washer won't fill or fills very slowly, if it overfills, or if the water is the wrong temperature, the water inlet valves could be faulty. These components are easy to locate and very easy to replace, at little cost. When you suspect an inlet valve is faulty, first check to make sure the water faucets are fully turned on and properly connected to the hot and cold inlets of the valves. Then check the screens in the valves; if they're clogged, clean or replace them. If water doesn't enter the tub, set the temperature control to the HOT setting. If there is no water, set the control to the WARM setting. If all that comes out is cold water, the hot-water inlet valve is faulty. Reverse the procedure to test the cold-water valve, setting the control first on COLD and then on WARM. If the tub overfills, unplug the washer. If water still flows into the tub, the valve is stuck open. In any of these cases, the valves should probably be replaced. To check the valve assembly:

If an inlet valve is faulty, check the water connection and the
valve screens. Try gently tapping the solenoids;
if this doesn't work, replace the inlet valve assembly.

Step 1: Remove the back service panel and disconnect the hot-water and cold-water hoses to the valves.

Step 2: Remove the hoses connected to the valves inside the cabinet. Also disconnect the wires from the terminals. Back out the screws holding the valves to the machine. The inlet valves have solenoids (a coil of wire that carries a current) inside the housing. These can be tested, but chances are the valves are simply worn out.

Step 3: Tap the solenoids with a screwdriver handle. If this doesn't work, replace the entire inlet valve assembly. Repairs usually cost more than a new part. Make sure the replacement valve assembly is exactly the same type as the old one. Install it in reverse order of the way you disconnected the old one.

Troubleshooting Water Leaks

Water leaks in a washer are often difficult to trace. There are many possibilities to look for. The problem could be a loose connection, a broken hose, a cracked component, or a defective seal. It could also be a hole in the tub. If a hole in the tub is the problem, it's usually best to replace the washer.

Most leaks can be eliminated by tightening water connections and replacing deteriorated components. To stop a leak:

Step 1: Check the lid seal. If faulty, replace with a new gasket.

Step 2: Check the hoses at faucet connections. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

Step 3: Check the hoses at water valve connections. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

Step 4: Check the drain hoses. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

Step 5: Check the inlet nozzles. Tighten connections or replace nozzles.

Step 6: Check the splash guard. Tighten connections or replace.

Step 7: Check any plastic valve. Tighten connections or replace.

Step 8: Check the outlet hose to drain. Tighten connections or replace hose.

Step 9: Check the water pump, using the procedures that follow.

Water is running out inside bottom of mechine


If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:
  1. Air gap device: It is a small device found on most washers to prevent the wash water from from being siphoned into the household water supply. It is located either midway along or at the the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water inlet valve It is usually made of a translucent plastic. If it is deformed or cracked, you need to replace it.
  2. The tube: It is a rubber tube that runs between the water inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it is broken, it can cause a leak.
  3. Inlet spout: Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If broken or loose, it can cause a leak.
During the drain and spin only:
  1. A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Check the entire hose and correct any problem you can find.
All the time:
  1. Hot and cold water fill hoses: Check the hot and cold hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten or replace it.
  2. Main tub seal: It is located between the transmission and the outer tub. Open the the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center.
  3. Pump: You can probably see the leak when the tub is full of water. If it leaks, replace it.
  4. Outer tub: Steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split or be punctured. Consult a qualified appliance technician if it is the culprit.

Leaking problem from the door


hi there,
dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, check these:

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom
of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you.
But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the
entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from
leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher,
remove the:

* Lower rack
*Spray arm
* Spray arm support
* Wash/drain impellers

Then try the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly.
You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the
rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten
or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues
to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the
dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the
leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.
