Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. To start with check the water inlet valve if it’s filling the dishwasher with water. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure. For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks. Also make sure that the water is draining and is not accumulated in the dishwasher, if it is in dishwasher then check for clogged drain hoses and drain pump. Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher. Don’t think water temp. can be an issue with your 2years old dishwasher, still if you want to check then check the Water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Dish washer leaks suds from the bottom of the door. When it was run with no soap it did not leak. I am using the same soap pods I have used since it's purchase, 1 1/2 yrs ago.


do not call that repairman again. check to see if gasket/seal is cracked and if the door can be adjusted to close tighter
