There is a tube on the side of your dishwasher for over flow. It sounds to me like your washer was moved and it banged against that line. You can put some caulking around where it enters the washer and that should be fine. The bottom can be several things. If your washer was removed and reinstalled like say maybe floor installation the supply line, or waste line may not be tight. If your unit has not been moved recently it is most likely the motor housing. Take off the one or two covers on the front bottom of the washer. Place the washer through the cycles and with a flashlight see at what cycle and where the water is coming from. It it appears to be coming from the white housing it's the motor. It's cheaper to just replace the unit as these motor housings are around $150.00. Check out craigslist. Hope this helps.

Dishwasher Leaking Water Front left side (when facing)


Had a similar situation with my dishwasher. Turned out there was some hard water build up on the rubber gasket. I would start there first. I would not use any harsh chemicals on it, (it may jeopardize the gasket) it usually flakes off. Hope this helps.

Yes it is possible, and depends on your water hardness. An easy was to check is to use a silicone caulking product and caulk around the dispenser. Let it cure fully before using the diswasher. Check for leaks.

Leaking from the lower right hand side during rinse cycle.


I had the problem with dribbles of water from the right side lower edge of the door, causing puddles across the floor.
Found there was a RECALL on MDB6000AWW models. The door inside panel was replaced by the dealer for free. No more puddles.

Water is leaking from my downstairs air conditioning vent


I seriously doubt it's the AC. It may be the draing in the upstairs shower, If it's a water line it is a very small leak and is probably puddling in you ceiling. if not nbeing absorbed. Best thing is contact your homeowners insurance because you are going to not only have a plumber to deal with , but a mols issue as well. Sorry, good luck.

Leaking water on floor in front of dishwasher


If your dishwasher leaks, check these:Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

1. Lower rack
2. Spray arm
3. Spray arm support
4. Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.


Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. 


Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.
