Hello. I have a brand new Danby DDW496W. I checked all of the hoses and it seems when this washer drains, it is leaking from the bottom. The water appears to drip slowly from the screws at the bottom. Everything seems to be level. It is not dripping as much as it was ever since I hooked it up again however there is still some noticable dripping sounds coming from it.

Re: Danby DDW496W Leaking Brand new
Check your hose connections in the back for tightness and sealing (there should be some rubber seals inside the screw-in connections) and if tight and not leaking, you might have a loose clamp inside the unit, or a leaking/damaged hose, or even a defective/leaking pump. If it is brand new and returnable I'd return it for a new one rather than try to fix it...

Ditto- same issue, hoses are tight, just leaks through the bottom while draining. Anyone with advice? I just bought mine used, and the previous owner is willing to buy a replacement part, we just have to figure out what we need...
It sounds as if the d/washer is pressurising due to a blocked outlet drain hose.
Make sure that the drain for the dishwasher is actually clear take hose out of the drain outlet.On some of the Beko dishwashers they put a plug up inside the drain hose which has to be removed before use or if it is a new installation and it is draining into a "U" bend on a sink check that the little spigot that the hose is onto is actually open.They come from the plumbers merchants blanked if blanked then you have to cut the end off to suit size of hose.I hope this has helped.
If your dishwasher does you need to check all this parts:
1. Check sink drain and drain hose for restrictions The drain hose and recirculation
hoses can be responsible for leaks. The drain hose can cause the dishwasher to fail to drain properly. The recirculation hose can
be responsible for problems with poor rinsing of dishes. 2. Unjam the motor 3. Unjam the pump 4. Check the drain valve 5. Check the drive belt 6. Test the timer motor If you have a brand new dishwasher or garbage disposer, check the knock out plug on the garbage disposer.
