Is it possible for the homeowner to fix a Samsung dishwasher that has the "heavy" light blinking and will not run? The manual says it is a leakage problem but no leakage is detected.


You are correct, the HEAVY light blinking indicates a leakage problem. Remember that the Samsung DW's (dishwashers) have a base that holds the water so it doesn't run out on your floor. You will have to pull your DW out so you can remove the right-side metal panel. Pull the insulation up so you can look inside. You will see the floor of the plastic base has a low spot in it, and the water sensor is located over that area. That area must be completely dry (1/8" of water will trigger the error). Once you sop up and dry all the water there, you can start up the dishwasher and watch for leaks. The most common places are the drain pump (also visible on the right-hand side) or the drain hose. And sometimes, there is no leak, but water got in there because you used too much detergent (or the wrong detergent), and it caused it to overflow into the base.

Hello! I have an issue with my maytag dishwasher model number MDB6100AWQ. It is running, and it goes to drain, and slowly starts leaking onto my kitchen floor! We took it out about a year ago and...


check the door gasket. check that it is draining. disconnect drain line from under sink ad put into a bucket. most likely it isn't draining ad is overflowing.

Some water is leaking under the dishwasher and on the kitchen floor during the end of the wash cycle.


Does it leak during pump-out only?
If so , must be drain hose .To see everything,remove kick plate to isolate leak. Check hose connections. Fill and drain and observe.Or run a whole cycle with kick plate off to find leak.





Good luck

Water leaked all over the floor after completing drying cycle


It is probably a clogged drain line that dumps into either your disposal if you have one or directly in the drain under your sink you may have an air gap on the sink they tend to plug around this area.

Dishwasher doesn't drain completely after full cycle


If there is any blockage in your diposal, water will comes up to the sink, since it happened to me. As soon I installed the air gap then it fixed the problem. No air gap, water flowing is slowing down conflicting with timed draining causing this problem. Let's think of this, if you fill up water in a 1/2 galon milk container, and you try to emty it. If you pull down straightly , it will be slow compared to pull it at an agle to let air going into the opening. The air vent helps water flow better meeting the timed draining.

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.

It sound like while the assembly of the garbage disposal, you placed the end of the drain line pipe in a lower position than it was before. Good luck!

Leaking water on floor during drain cycle


First the source of the leak needs to be identified. pull the machine out from under the counter and remove the left side panel exposing the blue float assembly. Turn the machine on and observe the fill cycle. if water comes out anywhere on the fill mechanism then the inlet valve needs to be replaced. once the machine has filled and begun to cycle cancel the program and drain the unit. observe closly where the leak is happening. a leak during drain usually indicated a leaking drain hose.

Leaking on floor only after shuts down.


Griz, check the vent and see if you have bunch of gunk thats collecting water in it. Sometimes the spray arms are cracked and direct water into the vent. If this happens you will have leaking down the center of the door. Catriver...post back
