Question about Bosch Dishwashers
My Bosch dishwasher is leaking a small amount of clean water which I have to wipe off the floor a couple of times a day.
I tipped it up to look underneath and more water leaked out. It seems to be gathering under the metal bottom of the appliance and overflowing in the front left hand corner. Any suggestions would be helpful. The dishwasher is 15 years old, so unless there is a really simple fix, I will consider replacing it.

difficult to weld stainloess steel. another way is to drill out the hole slightly and fit a small nut and bolt with fibre washers

Are you washing cereal bowls or mixing bowls on the bottom rack? If so, are you placing them in front? Sudden leaks that form huge puddles can often be attributed to improper loading of the dishwasher. Most dishwashers don't have a seal across the tub front. The door closes over it and does a pretty good job of deflecting water back inside the wash cavity. However, if you place bowls in the front on the bottom rack rack they can divert the water right over the tub lip and onto the floor. This is usually the culprit that causes most leaks in dishwashers. Now, if you don't think you have a loading problem, remove the kick panel on the bottom of the dishwasher and check the drain line and pump housing for leaks. Check the door gasket for tears or cracks. Lastly, feel inside the bottom of the door with your hand. You should be able to feel the door insulation. If it is wet, then the problem could be a leak around your soap or rinse-aid dispenser. Depending on the model, some dispensers are mounted to the door with a gasket behind it. Sometimes this gasket can form leaks. I hope this helps.

Sorry about the delay in time in getting back to your problem if not already resolved heres what you can try. Remove the bottom panel and run through a load, to see exactly where leak is coming from, most common place for leak is through the heater hold down brass nuts. They crack and need to be replaced

I thought I would fix this myself - but hubby took a look, wiggled a few wires and said 'there's your problem'. The water valve would not open because a connecting wire was loose. It was the kitten after all - I'd better pop that panel back on.
