Coffee pot located on counter directly above dishwasher leaked coffee down front of dishwasher. Heavy light began flashing and will not stop. What can I do?


Actually, I think some coffee got down into the base and triggered the flood sensor. (Or it may coincedentally be that your dishwasher has a leak that triggered the flood sensor). You would have to pull the DW out, remove the panel on the left and right-hand sides, and dry all the water (or coffee) out.

GE Potscrubber,Quiet Power dishwasher leaks while running


Check to see if the door baffles are intact they are little black rubber things in the front on each side of the tub. the pump seal could be leaking underneath. the wrong detergent (dishwashing detergent) could have been used.

Float switch dripping water onto floor while dishwaser running


You will find that the flood switch will be operating due to the leak, it will most likely be from one of 2 places:
1. Around the door seal, Give it a clean and check for splits/damage, and make sure screws on door hinges are tight.
2. Check the rollers that screw onto the inside of the dishwasher cabinet, The screws on these can come loose and cause water to run down into the base, check they are tight.
Hopefully this helps.

Hi, i've taken the top and sides off my Bosch dish washer sgs45e02gbas it has not been working. the problem is ....when you switch it on is there is a pumping/throbing noise but doesn't continue...


Hello Phillip,

The reason only the pump runs anytime its powered up is because the flood detector has detected water in the base of the dishwasher and until that water is gone only the pump will run.That flood detector is (when looking at it from the front) is in the left front corner,its a styrofoam disc with a rod in the center of it and has floated up activating the flood switch on the letf side wall where the water enters the tub (can be seen on the left side with side panel removed) if thier is no water in the base frame perhaps some foreign object has wedged itself under the sytrofoam disc holding it up. Until the water is out of the base frame only the pump will run as long as the flood switch is tripped.

Possible things that will make water be in the base frame are,
oversuds from too much detergent
a leak of any component or hose
a defective water level switch allowing it to overfill

Where is the fuse on my dishwasher my dishwasher will not turn on. i unplugged and reset the breaker


Do note that dishwashers have safety circuits (Anti flood device) that detects if any water leaks due to cracked pipes etc at the bottom of the washer that also shuts off the washer if a fault is detecte. Make sure that water is not at the bottom causing such action. (Try tilting the washer to side / front / back and chech that water does not appear on the floor.

Door leaks on the floor in front of my dishwasher


1. make sure dishwasher is level front to back and side to side.
2. check the main washer arm (WD22X154) on the bottom side for leaks. If you use heated dry, the heating elements can cause the part of the spray arm directly over it to soften and eventually leak. When water comes out that leak it can spray at the bottom of the door, splashing water inside it and resulting in your leak.
3. if 1 and 2 OK, watch how you load the lower rack. If dishes or a bowl direct water from the lower wash arm to spray against the bottom of the door, especially at the center of the door bottom, the resulting splash inside the door allows water to hit the outer door panel and drip out a one or both corners of the door.

Pull the built in unit out and tilt towards the rear right leg and the water will drain on to the floor. The Dishwasher then restarts but the anti flood sensor will reactivate after 2-3 more washes. Do not know final fix yet.

Leaking


That would be bad news. That plastic thing is the pump, and a bad seal means motor / pump replacement or a new dishwasher. Average life of a dishwasher is about 9 years.
