Whirlpool dishwasher Leaking water
If the dishwasher
leaks, and you know the problem is not related to tub overfilling, the
pump, or inlet valve problems, the plumbing connections may be faulty.
Most dishwashers are connected to the water supply with metal pipe
fittings, and the leak could be at these fittings. If the fittings are
threaded, tighten them with an adjustable wrench. If this doesn't work,
chances are the threads are stripped or the fitting is cracked or
otherwise damaged. In this case, replace the fitting.
dishwashers discharge used water through a pipe or a hose connected to
the drain or garbage disposer under the kitchen sink. If the drain line
is made of flexible hosing, it may have cracked from prolonged exposure
to hot water. Examine the hose; if it's damaged, replace it. If the
hose is leaking at its connections with the disposer or dishwasher,
tighten the fittings or clamps at the connections, or replace the
clamps. Also check for water leaks around inlet valves, drain valves,
and anywhere you see flexible hoses and hose connections. Leaks at
clamps can be stopped by tightening or replacing the clamps. Leaks in
hoses can be eliminated by replacing the hoses.
I HOPE THAT YOU FIND THIS INFORMATION VERY HELPFUL
