Dishwasher leaking - Candy CD474

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 :)

There are screws on the inside of the door on a lot of those try to tighten them down a little sometimes that can cause a leak.

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.

Yes you can add to the hose. Just make sure there are no leaks.

Sounds like the main pipe is clogged - or the food filter. Check that the filter is completely clear.

Smeg dishwasher leaking from front right hand side, cold leak

Coffee pot located on counter directly above dishwasher leaked coffee down front of dishwasher. Heavy light began flashing and will not stop. What can I do?

Actually, I think some coffee got down into the base and triggered the flood sensor. (Or it may coincedentally be that your dishwasher has a leak that triggered the flood sensor). You would have to pull the DW out, remove the panel on the left and right-hand sides, and dry all the water (or coffee) out.

Hi my dishwasher leaks water all over the floor when in use, its not the plumbing ive checked that, i empty the food filter inside before every wash and i have no instsructions.can you point me in the...

Take of the side panal right side facing the front as this exposes more of the bottom of the machine. Check for any leaks around the pipes and the sump. While side is of turn machine on and see if you can spot any water and make note where abouts in the wash it is as this will point you to where leak will be.

Kenwood dishwasher Comes up E3

I do not know the Kenwood dishwasher, hence I do not know what the E3 error is, but many dishwashers require a sustained pressure of at least 30 psi.
Can you please post the model number of your Kenwood dishwasher?

Not starting wash cycle

Typically this means that there has been a water leak of some sort and there is water in the lower base pan. This is the large white plastic base that the dishwasher sits on.

If you remove the toe kick and look back past the fill valve on the extreme left side of the dishwasher about 6 to 8 inches from the front you will see a red stick that goes straight up and down. This is a mechanical linkage that activates the drain feature. Be careful as there are live connections here.

This stick rests on a round piece of Styrofoam that acts as a float. If there is water present it will cause the stick to lift and the dishwasher will go into drain. The source of the leak will have to be isolated and corrected. Most likely it is the fill float assembly as referenced at the end of this post.

If the stick is not in the upright position then there is possibly an issue with the switch mechanism itself.

You will have to pull the dishwasher out from beneath the cabinet and remove the panel covering the left hand side. If it is a full panel then there are a couple of screws holding it on from the front through side trim as viewed when the door is open if it is a half panel then it can be removed by removing the large torx screw on the lower right as seen when facing the panel.

If there is a problem with the switch then the entire mechanism should be replaced.

Try the following link to a picture for reference. It is upside down as compared to the installed one:

My kenmore built in dishwasher is leaking out the front

change the door gasket. also check to see if the wall hasn't "sprung out" of position this will always cause leaks if the side walls aren't supported.
