Question about Blanco 157-075R-WH Elan II Kitchen Faucet White

1 Answer

Water is seeping from the base of the unit into the sink and into the cabinet below. It appears to be a washer problem since water comes out of the unit at the base where the faucet assembly and the sink meet.

That's correct, you have a bad rubber o-ring at the base. Take it to Home Depot or Lowe's and match it up

Bosch dishwasher stopped mid cycle E15 on screen


the flood switch has detected water leaking into the base of the machine, you will need to locate the source of the leak its usually from the sump seal on bosch units (which cant be ordered seperately it comes with the entire sump assembly and thats quite a bit of work to replace as bosch dont like giving you access to anything you will need to basically dismantle the entire base of the unit and most of the wiring and components within it to replace the sump seal

Water backs up from the drain in my dishwasher and smells. what is the problem?


Two things can cause this problem:
1. The check valve in your dishwasher may be defective, allowing water and food debris to seep (or run) back into your dishwasher.
2. Your drain hose may not be "mounted up" the way it should be. Look under your sink. Look at how your drain hose is connected to your garbage disposal. If the hose runs down to the floor of your cabinet and into your dishwasher, that is wrong. Instead, it should be mounted up so that water from the sink and garbage disposal would have to flow up first to get into the dishwasher. If you do this, then even if you have a bad check-valve in the dishwasher, it will prevent the problem (or greatly reduce the problem) of dirty water flowing back into your dishwasher.

E15 i want reset it ?


If this is a Bosch dishwasher, the E15 error indicates water in the base of the unit. You need to unplug the dishwasher and pull it out (if it is an under-counter unit) carefully. Empty the water from the base. Sometimes tipping the unit so that the base is tilted 45 degrees from the floor will help the water flow out. Make sure that the entire base is dry.

Replace the dishwasher under the cabinet (if needed) and plug it back in. If the error repeats at the next cycle, you need to determine where the dishwasher is leaking. It could be the outlet hose, the pump or the tub. Replace the bad part. If the dishwasher is under warranty, contact Bosch.

I hope this helps.

(if you recently had a flood either under the kitchen sink or an overflow at that sink, you just need to dry the dishwasher base.)

Water not heating


Dish washers only use water supplied from the hot water side of the pipes under the cabinet or sink, so if you installed the dishwasher yourself, be sure that you ran your inlet water line and connected it to the hot water side, and not the cold water side. The dish washer has heating elements inside the machine to dry the dishes, not heat the water. If this is hooked up correctly and you are still getting cold water to heat the dishes, the problem may be that the unit is too far from the hot water tank. In that case, you may need an auxiliary hot water tank installed near the dishwasher under the cabinet. They make small tanks for such purposes.

I have Moen 7825 and the instructions does not say anything about using plumbers putty on the base like I have seen in youtube videos. Should I use it anyway?


It's up to you. It helps to prevent water from seeping under the faucet and dripping into the cabinet below.

Miele G646SC Plus dishwasher Drainage / inlet warning light


Hi,

If the unit doesn't drain properly check for any kinked hoses and also check the drain spigot under the sink where the drain hose goes into the sink as these are not always opened up enough for the water to escape and a slight shoulder can then trap food particles and cause a blockage.
As for the base tray getting water inside the unit check inside the cabinet to make sure the top spray arm lock nut is tight and the ring on the side of the unit is not loose inside the cabinet where the water enters the unit. These two things can cause water to run down the side panels and into the base. The black hose i think is the overflow pipe. Also make sure you are not using too much detergent and the correct detergent as this can over sud and water can spill into the base. Hope this helps.

Water seeping out of dishwasher from bottom of dishwasher when washer is on. Washes and completes cycle ok, checked hoses and drains already for blockages but none


I assume you are seeing water coming out of the bottom of the door. If this is where it is coming from and the unit is draining okay then your door seal is bad.

If the leak is actually on the bottom of the dishwasher, then you have a crack or seal breach in the cabinet. It is important to find out exactly where the water is leaking from to determine where the problem is located in this circumstance.

If this helps you, please select YES to one of the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

Leaking kohler faucet


Where the spout pivots on the main body, there are a couple of washers, you can replace these washers pretty easily by removing the handle and then the "cover" from the unit. The water has to be shut off before you do this. I would take this oppurtunity to replace all the washers.

I need more info but I would check the drain connection under the sink to make sure that it goes up after leaving drain , to keep the sink from draining into the dishwasher.

Water slowly filling cabinet when dishwasher is off.


either
leaking valve - to check, turn water off and see if it still happens
or
if appliance is plumbed in to a spigot on the sink trap, then when you empty sink, some of the water finds its way into the dishwasher via the drain hose. to cure, take the drain hose as high as possible under the sink in a swan neck
