Steam is pouring out of the top right hand side of the dishwasher. It is ruining the underside of the countertop.


Hello,

Its completly normal for the dishwasher to steam during the cycle. Some manufactures make a steam guard which is a piece of stainless steel and mounts to the underside of the countertop where the dishwasher is installed to prevent the steam from ruining the countertop. If ya can find a piece of stainless steel to mount there it will deflect the steam.is needs to be stainless since regular steel isn't stainless and would rust over time. Perhaps plexiglass would work too.

Kenmore Washer model # 11082692120 is Leaking as it is filling the tub with water. It is leaking at the base of the machine on both sides and in the front bottom. it was gradual at first now it is leaking...


The leak is likely coming from a broken drain pump or detached pressure hose. Remove the machine cabinet to access and look at these areas.

Unplug the machine then release the console from the top of the cabinet. Remove the screws securing the console then pull forward and up and lay it back on the hinges.

Disconnect the lid switch h
arness connector by pressing on the tab located in the middle and pulling it up.

The cabinet is attached to the rear of the washer
by two brass-colored retaining clips. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the turned-up edge of the clip, located on both sides, and then pry back to release the clip from the slot in the cabinet.

Open and hold the lid while grabbing
the cabinet front opening then tilt the top of the cabinet toward you by pulling the cabinet away from the base. This releases the front and back slots of the cabinet from the tabs in the front and back of the base

Using the side of your leg and/or body
as a support for the front of the cabinet, carefully lift up the cabinet and set it aside.

Replace the drain pump(part number
3363394) if it's leaking. Pry the clips securing the pump to the motor off and remove the pump.

Remove the hoses from the pump and connect it to the new pump and install it back in place in reverse order of the removal steps.
Bring the cabinet to the front of the washer then slide the front bottom rail of the cabinet under the rail at the base of the machine then lay down the cabinet into position. Make sure the slots in the cabinet sit into the tabs at the base of machine. Reconnect the lid switch harness then push the retaining clips back down into position to secure the cabinet to the rear of the machine. Reinstall and secure the console to complete the repair.

Steam is leaking from the side of my dishwasher, and ruining my unit


Has steam of this nature been emitted when the unit was first in use ?

It might be that the thermostat is failing/faulty causing the unit to overheat the water. Most dishwashers do not heat the water to a level that would cause excessive steam.

My Titanium leaking water. Under it


The steam valve assembly that the steam knob on the right hand side connects into is probably faulty. When you're steaming if you hear hissing coming from behind the knob then this indicates the connections into this assembly are leaking steam, and also hot water, which is why you're getting puddles under the machine. You can get a replacement steam valve assembly that fixes some issues with the original (part code SVM-17, available from www.partsguru.com) and will prevent the leakage, or you could simply try opening the top of the coffee machine and removing the tube that runs from the boiler into the steam valve. It has two o-rings that provide the seal where it connects into the steam valve assembly, and if you lubricate these with a food grade silicon lubricant it may fix the problem. My Gaggia is 7 years old so I decided to replace the whole assembly which costs about $50 and that solved the problem completely.

What exactly is the "round


that is where your heater core is. Its leaking, or the feed hose to the heater core is leaking. You really need to pull the plastic cover off, just below the dash on the passenger side to look. the heater core looks like a small radiator. If coolant is leaking out of it, replace it. the coolant will cause problems in the long run, if you don't fix it now. After fixing it, steam clean the passenger side of the suv, to stop having a smell, and stop the corrosion. hope this helps

The steam nozzle has broken


Yes you can but it is very hard to get inside the front of the machine if the tube has come off in the front panel, if it has come off one of the solinoids in the right hand side of the machine it is easy to put back on also check that the steam nozzle is not blocked with old milk it will cause the pressure to blow off the tubes

Muffler


whenever air is compressed, as inside your cylinders, water is squeezed out of the air and does not have time to evaporate back into the air until either it gets past the exhaust completely (you see tailpipes steaming on cold mornings) or if the exhaust system has reached sufficient temperature and actually allows the water to "steam" out of the system at an earlier location in the system, then yopu don't see steam.. Many exhaust systems are ruined quickly when drivers take short trips only and not long enough to reach high exhaust temperature. You can always tell, by looking at tailpipes on cold mornings, which drivers have just started out and which have been traveling a long distance because of the steam issue.

Partial venting


Are you running the vent fan whenever you cook on the stove top? You should.

And you should run it on high if you're having steam problems.

Otherwise, you'll need to do something like use a small counter top fan to help circulate the air better.

Please let us know if we can help further.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
