Hi,

hat leak may not be in the machine. It may be one of the hoses going into it. Look to find out where the water is actually coming from. If it is a hose from the faucet behind the machine, the hose can easily be replaced at a low cost. If it is only leaking with hot water, check the water inlet valve at the rear of machine where the hoses connect, top left rear facing it. If it is leaking and running down the left side, it is the wrong side for the pump unless it running across the floor and out the left side. If it were the hose, it would leak all the time. It sounds like the hot side has gone bad on the inlet valve. You can save several dollars by fixing this yourself.

Tilt it back and look for two screws, near each corner on the bottom front. Remove these screws and pull the bottom toward you. It should lift off the clips on top. Run the machine carefully, moving parts and see if the leak is actually coming from the left rear and from somewhere up high. First try cold water, then hot. If it leaks on one and not the other, then it is the valve. Be sure to unplug the machine if you decide to change this part. Also you might want to mark where the wires go back to be sure you do not reverse the hot and cold water, as well as fittings and connections. The water leakage evidence should be visible. If not, wash a load and watch for where water leakage occurs. Just look. Do not touch since there will be electrical current supplied.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Float switch dripping water onto floor while dishwaser running


You will find that the flood switch will be operating due to the leak, it will most likely be from one of 2 places:
1. Around the door seal, Give it a clean and check for splits/damage, and make sure screws on door hinges are tight.
2. Check the rollers that screw onto the inside of the dishwasher cabinet, The screws on these can come loose and cause water to run down into the base, check they are tight.
Hopefully this helps.
