Steps: 1)Shut off power to the dishwasher at the circuit breaker and turn off the water line to the dishwasher by locating the shut-off valve, which is typically inside the cabinet beneath the kitchen sink. 2)Remove the four screws that hold the dishwasher kick plate in place. 3)Locate the motor,which is typically centered beneath the bottom spray arm. 4)Lower the dishwasher door and take out the bottom dish rack. 5)Remove the spray tower and spray arm assembly by unscrewing the bolt through its center. 6)Take out the filter immediately beneath the spray tower. 7)Disconnect the motor wires from the wiring harness,making a note of which wire connects to which terminal. 8)Disconnect the pump assembly and drain hose from the motor. 9)Remove the motor from the base of the dishwasher by unscrewing the four bolts holding it in place. 10)Repair or replace the motor and reinstall,taking care to reconnect the wires the same was as they were attached to the old motor. 11)Attach the pump and drain hose to the motor. 12)Replace the filter,spray tower and lower spray arm assembly.Reattach the center bolt in the spray tower. 13)Restore electrical power and turn on the water supply valve. 14)Run a test cycle to check for leaks underneath the appliance. 15)Replace the kick panel in front of the dishwasher.
You most likly need a new bottom door seal. Usually 3 screws down each side of the door and then two screws hold the bottom door seal in place. The bottm door seal can look fine but if its leaking out the bottom front this is the problem 99 % of the time, Unless someone is using dish soap to preclean the dishes or using regular in the dishwasher.
Most dish washers do not seal at the bottom, the door lip just sits in front of the tub lip and does not make a real tight seal like a refrigerator door, so unless water is spraying out the top and sides of the door,I would assume that it is either overflowing,or you are using the wrong detergent and it is just foaming to much inside the washer and going over the lip and dripping on the floor. Once the suds stop getting agitated then turn back to water and don't look like suds. So if you watch the washer during the cycle and the water s only coming from the bottom it is the water level switch inside on right in the front,looks like a mushroom, once the washer reaches a certain level of water this switch floats up and shuts off the water to stop it from filling anymore. If this seems to be the case just remove the front bottom kick panel and you should be able to see the switch, watch it when the washer is filling,you can also push up on the little arm and the water should shut off. Post back with any questions.
This is very rare in any dishwasher. I use to repair most all dishwahers. First check your door seal for any cracks, cuts or splits. The water inside is under great pressure and can push out from the top of the door if that is is weak, flat, or has anykind of cut or crack. If the leak indeed is coming from the top then you will need to get someone to help you pull out unit and check top for cracks or splits. This entire housing is plastic and may have come with crack. If your washer has a hose at the top, then check it good. While its out from under the counter run it and watch to see if you can tell where leak is coming from. I may have missed something. Remember, always unplug this from wall outlet or turn off breaker if you are indeed moving it in or out. Good luck.
1. make sure dishwasher is level front to back and side to side.
2. check the main washer arm (WD22X154) on the bottom side for leaks. If you use heated dry, the heating elements can cause the part of the spray arm directly over it to soften and eventually leak. When water comes out that leak it can spray at the bottom of the door, splashing water inside it and resulting in your leak.
3. if 1 and 2 OK, watch how you load the lower rack. If dishes or a bowl direct water from the lower wash arm to spray against the bottom of the door, especially at the center of the door bottom, the resulting splash inside the door allows water to hit the outer door panel and drip out a one or both corners of the door.
When water accumulates in the bottom it triggers an error code and it keeps running. There is a water sensor in the bottom. I pull out the bottom drawer, mop up the water and use a hair dryer to dry the water (the more you mop up the less you need the hair dryer). Be careful to not get any of the plastic too hot. Kill the power before messing with the unit. The first time I did this it took 20 minutes to dry out. I have gotten more proficient and it take about 5 minutes now.
I had a water leak which was due to the rinse agent cap not being completely sealed. Water leaked out of a small hole in the front (I'm guessing an air vent but don't know for sure) and flooded the bottom.
I also had a leak due to having too tall a dish in the drawer and the top not sealing. I currently have a leak on the top drawer of unknown origin, but the bottom drawer still works. Hope this helps.
