Most dishwashers drain into the garbage disposal or sink drain. If you leave a lot of food on the dishes, it could cause a backup in either the drain or the garbage disposal, depending on your setup. Try running the garbage disposal or using a product like liquid plumber or drano to clear it.

Hi, I cannot find a replacement for the side hose of the sink. Also my sink is leaking from its base. I would really appreciate your feedback.


Suffolk Appliances of Bay Shore usually has such parts. The sink drain sometimes can be tightened from underneath by turning the big collar nut.

Water is coming from the bottom


Take off the panel at the bottem of dishwasher and find leak. If leaking from water supply connection try to tighten it first. If that does not work turn off water under sink and replace warter supply line. You can get a easy to handle braded line at you local hardware store. Replace other leaking parts at www.repairclinic.com.

My dishwasher air flow leak why


I will guess you are talking about the air gap that is mounted on the sink top. A simple fix is to attach an extra piece of hose/pipe/tube between the sink mount and the 'upside-down y' shaped connection. This will give you an additional buffer between your sink and the splashing water flowing from 1 side of the 'y' to the other. Any number of tubes will do the trick. Just make sure that your connections are secure. Good luck

WATER LEAKS UNDER THE SINK WHEN DISHWASHER IS IN


Check the connection to the drain tailpiece from the dishwasher under the sink and make sure the clamp hasn't slipped off and is tight. Check the drain hose from the dishwasher and be sure it's not split or damaged. Check the drain spur on the drain tailpiece and see if it's corroded or leaking. Check the trap under the sink as well and make sure it's not leaking.

Your drain m ay be clear but it sounds as though the dishwasher line may now be clogged, remove the dishwasher drain line from the trap below the sink and check for leaks. You drain nthe dishwasher into a bucket.

Maytag Quiet Series 200 Dishwasher Leaking Internally


two possible sources of water
either
inlet valve leaking. turn water off after use and if no water accumulates, then cause is leaking valve
or
if drain is plumbed in to a spigot on the sink trap, then every time you empty water from the sink, some of it goes down to the washer
cure by taking the drain hose up as far as possible under the sink in a swan neck

I have a newly installed Kitchenaide dishwasher. The copper pipe is secure under the sink and appears connected properly to the dishwasher. When I turn the shut off valve on, water begans to run from...


You should be able to remove the panel below the door and see where water inlet hose is connected to the solenoid valve. I'd bet that's where it's leaking since you say it's newly installed.

I would put the dishwasher on its back so you can see underneath to check the fill and drain hose to make sure there not damaged in any way to cause it to leak. if it all looks good under there return it upright and remove the front lower kick panel grab a flashlight and start the dishwasher. you shoud be able to see a leak and where it is comming from. its possible it could be from the hose the inlet valve the pump and motor assembly or the plastic tub itself. good luck
