Question about Dishwashers
My dishwasher is leaking water from the right hand side (viewed from the front). I have removed the side panel and can see water leaking from a slim plastic container with 3 oulets (or inlets) and what looks like 3 washers or seals at the bottom.
Can I get replacement washers for this model and, if so, do you know the part numbers please.

To clear the drain in a few easy steps; find where the outlet hose connects into your house drain system, disconnect it and then see if the machine will drain into a bucket/tray. Try it both by gravity (if you can get the hose below the water level)and with the machine on if not. This will tell you if the blockage is in the house drain not the machine. If the house drain is clear, see if you can disconnect the drain hose from the machine end and check it isn't blocked.if this is not removable, try poking a bit of wire or similar down it, being careful not to go past where it enters the machine (measure your bit of wire against the outside of the hose first). As Joe says, if you are sure the accessible filters and everything you can get to easily are clear, a garden hose in the hole will possibly clear the blockage if you can get a bit of pressure - often the easiest way is to hold a rag tightly around the end of the hose and the hole you are trying to get water through. (Note you will get wet - be very careful of electical sockets etc). If this doesn't seem to clear the blockage then the pump is either faulty, or not recieving instructions from the control board to work (more likely, although you would expect an error message). Hope this helps, if you wish to change Joe's rating you can just by rating the advice again. Good luck :)

if you are very careful you can reseal it with a soldering iron as it should be a sealed cabinet. i have seen one seald with a cheap sealr and the cabinet turned orange.
