Works fine, cleans properly, last couple of times has big puddle of water over floor, seems to be coming from underneath machine. checked filters, hoses etc and all ok. machine is approx. 8 yrs old..


one some models such as kenmore or hotpoint, the door seals go bad (the black rubber things in the corner at the base of the door)
On others such as tappan and frigidaire
the little corner diverters come away from the base (they are semi clear plastic and
attach to the bottom of the dishwasher in each corner near the door).

Also if you have done a lot of dishes by hand the soap may accumulate in the sump of the dishwasher and cause it to oversuds causing soapy water to leak out the front.
If you use regular dish detergent instead of dishwasher detergent, this will occur as well.

Last thing to look at, especially on hotpoint, ge or kenmore is the shaft that enters the
side of the pump which is attached to a triangle shaped piece of plastic. The seal often
fails there and will require pump replacement as it is molded into the case of the unit.

How old is my Hotpoint dishwasher, model HDA3400G02WW Serial SG8047194 is??? My dishwasher humms, but doesn't runs at ALL. What could be the problem????


The motor is stuck. If you remove the lower cover and see a square aluminum motor it is less than 7 years old. Make sure power is off at breaker and rotate the motor shaft
by turning the fins inside the motor.
If the motor is black and round you have to turn
the fan blade which is located in a slot between the metal pump and the plastic
pump. Also once freed, a light shot of silicone or WD-40 (silicone works better) at the
bearing ends. Also check pump for leaks around the drain solenoid (shiny shaft attached
to a plastic triangle). If it's leaking during pumpout, the seal has failed. The pump runs
around 100 dollars typically. Hope this helps.

Water seems to be leaking around where pump shaft seems to meet plastic


Go to partselect.com and type in model number there should be a seal kit for the pump and have shaft seals in the kit.

Diswasher stop working, it fills with water but doesnt do anything else. you hear clicking and clunging as you turn the knob is there anything that can be done


Look very closely at the wash motor shaft extension on your dishwasher. You’ll need to disassemble from the spray arm downward to get to it. A plastic shaft extension was installed from the factory. If something too hard got caught in the cutter that mounts onto this extension, that plastic shaft extension strips out. When you remove the shaft extension from the motor shaft you will likely see stripped out threads from the extension left on the motor shaft. Replace the shaft extension, seal kit, and cutter with the new improved parts kit. Then you should hear that old familiar sound of your dishes being blasted clean.

Maytag Dishwasher-pdb2430awx-Leaking


I believe that you must buy the plastic pump housing.....And that vinyl type shaft seal comes with that..I think!!!!
I have the same problem.....I changed the regular seal kit at a cost of $30.00 CND....Which is like what? 100.00 American.
Anyways mine still leaks after all that. Turns out there is so much rust between the nylon seal that is attached to the motor shaft, that water works its way down there. Funny that seal does not come with the common seal replacement kit. Im going to check tomorrow to see If I can get that seal alone. My concern is that after I drive for another hour one way to get that seal. Am I only going to put it on just to find out that the shaft is pitted to much by the rust to seal again? I am so tired of buyin ****!!!!!!

Dishwasher leaking from bottom


The leak is coming from the main seal? The chopper thingy on these old machines will not come out without a fight. These impellers have been there a long time and has had lots of hard water and crud to hold them on. Get a screwdriver or a reasonable facsimile and carefully bust it off. Be careful not to damage the shaft. If you pull the whole motor assembly out, replace the rubber gasket too.

Bosch dishwasher is permanently draining even when the door is open. The draining usually does not stop, but on the occasions it does the wash cycle only last a few minutes before it draining again.


THERE IS A FLOAT WITH A RED SHAFT /LEFT SIDE AS YOU LOOK INTO THE BOTTOM OF MACHINE. AFTER TAKING OFF KICK PLATE. IT IS GOING TO DRAIN IF THERE IS A LEAK FROM PUMP OR HOSES FILLING UP THE PLASTIC BOTTOM OG MACHINE . KEEPS A LEAK FROM GOING ONTO YOUR FLOOR.. . MY GUESS IS YOU HAVE A LEAK DOWNTHERE AND NEED SERVICE.
