Thanks for using FixYa. If you
have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using
a detergent that is causing too much suds. Cut back on the amount of detergent
you use, and see if that makes a difference.
Water that spills through the door
vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself
may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment. you should
check the main tub seal, the door latch, the door gasket, the water-inlet valve,
and the fill and drain hoses.
Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet
up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).
Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose
connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses.
An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If
this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or
else revert for further assistance.
