I saw on another forum that these may leak if the assembler forgot to use teflon tape or silicone sealant where the pump assembly attaches. The repair is apparently not very difficult.

MCV24 dishwasher is leaking from bottom front corner. Cleaned the air gap - still leaking.


Hi


The rubber connector above the pump is a common leak point. The rubber sump behind the pump will leak often as well. If it's leaking between the pump and the motor you can replace the seal.

However there are various reasons of a dishwasher to leak.Please check the bellow link to get the factors that are responsible causing a dishwasher to leak:-

Dishwasher began leaking underneath when turned on. Humming as if trying to start, but nothing further exept water on floor


I don't know how old this dishwasher is but the symptom your describing sounds like the ceramic water seal on the bottom of the impeller assy but above the motor has failed. When the seal fails it allows water to run though the motor and then the bearings in the motor fail. Once water starts running though a dishwasher motor they are pretty much shot. The reason for this is that the leak starts out slow and it leaks for a long period before you ever see the water under the dishwasher. So by the time you see the leak water has been going through the pump / motor assy for weeks or months. By that time the service technicians only option is to replace the motor pump assy.

Broken glass in tub and now dishwasher leaks from pump. It is hard to see exactly where the water is coming from but it appears to be above the pump.


Hello- By pump do you mean motor pump, or drain pump? Drain pump has a small seal that can leak but rarely does. Motor has a seal that can leak, causing motor to fail eventually. This is confirmed by a small amount of water/deposits on lowest point of motor. This leak is unrelated to glass pieces in tub. Motors with this leak get louder as bearing fails, and eventually lock up. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed- Thanks- Ed

No water enters the inside of the dishwasher and the motor makes a sound as if under strain. It was working perfectly and then sudenly started leaking from underneath. Could not locate the leak yet. Old...


it is leaking from the seal above the motor in the centre bottom of your machine also check the door seal they tend to leak on older machines as well

Leak from above drain hose


Without knowing the manufacturer and model number of your dishwasher, it is hard to be specific but ...
above the drain connector on most dishwashers seals of the seals the sump area and motor(s)

If this dishwasher is many years old, my guess is tat it has deteriorated to the point of not being repaired and the leak could be caused by a rusting hole in the cabinet. Replacing the dishwasher may be your only viable option.

Leak from a black module, where an arm connects


if your dishwasher leaks check out this: 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:

  • Lower rack


  • Spray arm


  • Spray arm support


  • 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.

Dishwasher leaking


You must remove all covers possible in order to watch the drip source using a flashlight. Once found, yes, the leak is fixable. All leaks are fixable...depends on cost of fix. A main pump seal repair/replace may be too expensive. Again, cost is the main factor. So find the leak, then get a repair estimate, if necessary...or get a screwdriver and tighten the hose clamp.
