Dishwasher suddenly started leaking on floor?!

Our Dishwasher just started leaking all over the floor during a cycle and is getting progressively worse, which is when my wife decided to tell me (typical!!).
I don't even know where to begin looking when there is no clear view around the bottom to see where the water is coming from.

You guys have a 100% track record for me on here, please help try and keep that record in tact.

    one of the 4 bolts that connect on the bottom ouside and hold the round tube at the bottom inside is cracked and comes off easily causing a significant leak. How do I replace that?

    removed the unit from under the cabinet and found the drain hose from the upper rack was leeking at the clamp on the pump motor. the plastic hose and plastic pipe on the pump motor don't seem to meet up well. I need to know what I can put on the two diffrent types of plastic.

    I have a GE dishwasher and all of a sudden it started leaking at first it was a small amount that I could catch with a towel...now all of the water seems to come out on the floor. There is water collected at the bottom as well and I can't see where the problem may be

    We have a Jenn Air dishwasher which started leaking every three or four turns. Today we cleaned the gaskets, around the door, etc. It was just leaking a drop or two. Then I removed the bottom rack and added Jet Dry and started the washer. Water began gushing out the front right side-and started gathering under the unit-which it never did before. HELP The model is DW730B. any ideas?? John

You can replace the nuts. I went to fridgidaire.com and found the part number, then called around to a few appliance parts stores. Peice of cake, and only cost a few bucks. I don't trust those nuts because they crack, apparently, but the threading is super wierd so I don't see an alternative but to replace it with the same nut.

Kenmore uses the same wierd nuts and both of mine split. I ordered what I thought was a package of 2 but ended up only being one. Now waiting for the other. $3 for the part $7 for shipping and not available at Sears parts stores. Back to dishpan hands for now.

I have leaking from the screws holding the heating element of the same model dishwasher. The part is called heater nuts. I don't know if I need to replace the entire heating element assembly or just replace the nuts.

Any help is appreciated.

    Hey guys, I know this is too late to help the original poster, but just in case there's others out there who are looking:

    I also had a newer Frigidaire dishwasher with a leak at one of the heating element bolts that had corroded. After paying a plumber $120 to tell me the dishwasher was kaputz, I decided I'd try a little home repair before forking over another fortune for a technician or parts or worse a new dishwasher. I found this great epoxy (if interested it was Pow_R Stick Steel Hard 15 minute repair epoxy putty) which was heat resistant, drinking water safe and could cure even under water. I just used a small amount and sealed around the base of the hole by the heating element.

    I'm not a professional and a technician might scold me for my patch-work, but there's no leak so far! And it only cost me $4 Cdn. If I could have easily found a replacement nut I might have tried this first. Hope this helps!

Some water is leaking under the dishwasher and on the kitchen floor during the end of the wash cycle.


Does it leak during pump-out only?
If so , must be drain hose .To see everything,remove kick plate to isolate leak. Check hose connections. Fill and drain and observe.Or run a whole cycle with kick plate off to find leak.





Good luck

Kitchenaid dishwasher is leaking


depends. take the lower panels off the dishwasher below the door right at the floor. Once this is done you will need a flashlight. If possible lay on the floor with the flashlight and activate the dishwasher. Look for the leak at that point. If it starts leaking in the drain cycle then the impeller is leaking and will need to be replaced. These can be a little pricey so take the model and serial numbers and call an appliance parts house for the cost and it is a little bit of a hassel to replace so only you will know if you want to tackle it yourself or buy a new dishwasher. If is leaking during the rinse cycle then the gasket at the base if the washer (where the motor connects to the dishwasher itself) has gone bad and this is a bugger bear to repair. So it's up to you if you want to repair or replace.

Good luck on repairs Hope I helped you some

LG dishwasher is dripping water from vent onto floor


Good that it is working. Recommend you keep a lose eye on the vent on the bottom of the door panel. This model will probably begin leaking again if it has not been retrofit with a kit that LG developed.
Please open a new problem when it starts to leak and please provide the Model and serial number when you do. Good Luck!

Leaking water on floor during drain cycle


First the source of the leak needs to be identified. pull the machine out from under the counter and remove the left side panel exposing the blue float assembly. Turn the machine on and observe the fill cycle. if water comes out anywhere on the fill mechanism then the inlet valve needs to be replaced. once the machine has filled and begun to cycle cancel the program and drain the unit. observe closly where the leak is happening. a leak during drain usually indicated a leaking drain hose.
