Why is our dishwasher leaking water


There are 4 places it could be leaking. 1) at the connection where the water line connects to the dishwasher. If the dishwasher has been in operation for a long time then this is not likely to be the problem. If this were the problem you would notice water even when the dishwasher was not running. 2) at the drain hose connection. You would notice the water during and shortly after a drain cycle. The drain outlet is usually a hard plastic over which the rubber drain tube is clamped. Either the plastic could crack or the hose could dry out and crack. 3) The seal around the pump could be leaking. 4) The door seal could be leaking, though this in not usually the problem. You can probably determine the problem by removing the bottom panel so that you can see underneath the unit, and then run a cycle. There are usually 2 screws between the door bottom and the lower panel (near the sides of the machine) and 2 more screws at the
bottom of the lower panel (the recessed part of the panel) near the sides. Don't stick your hand under there because you will have power to the unit and a wet floor. That is a bad combination which could be lethal. Just shine a flashlight under and see where the water is leaking from as it runs. Remove power at the circuit breaker before trying to do any service on the unit.

Water leaking from dishwasher into my basement. Help!!!


I see the water leaking out the bottom plastic cover through the two little holes. I do not see water leaking around the top seal. I assume it is coming from a seal on the bottom.
Is there a manual that shows how to take the dishwasher apart to get to the seals? I have the parts sheet which shows the exploded views where the parts are shown. Much appreciated!

You seem to have a leaking inlet solenoid valve. It could be a bit of dirt stuck across the seats but it could also be the valve seats that have cracked or worn. Check the valve and replace it if necessary. It is the first component after the inlet pipe.

Hi,

There is a simple explanation for this - water is leaking into the bottom of your dishwasher under the washing compartment. This has caused the float to rise and trip the switch which activates the Aqua-Stop / anti-flood protection system. This also closes the solenoid (water control valve) which explains why you thought it needed to be replaced.

The only way to check this is to remove the washer from under the counter (disconnect power and water supply first) and tilt it backwards about 15-20 degrees. Water should run on to the floor from under the washer so I suggest putting some old towels down first. Once the water has been drained from under the washer, you can use it again, but it's not advisable if you have a leak. The only way to find the leak is to get access to the bottom of the washer by removing a side panel, usually the right-hand one. As you already replaced the solenoid, you should know how to do this. Once you have access you can run a cycle and try to see where the water is leaking from or you may be able to see signs of corrosion somewhere which should help you to identify the source of the leak.

If there is no water under the washer, you probably have a faulty float switch or possible a faulty control module.

Hope this helps. Post back if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Wateris leaking fromfront of both drawers


I am assuming this happens when you run the dishwashers. It is likely the drawer door seals are dirty. This is the brown liner around the door. The other reason could be the vacuum seal is not working. The dishwasher runs a small pump when you start it which helps create a vacuum seal. But this failing in both units at the same time is unlikely.

Try cleaning the door seals (refer owner's manual) and see if it makes a difference.
Good luck

Panel lit and motor running but will not cylce


It's almost certainly the case that something has started leaking in the bottom of the dishwasher (a seal or hose) and has filled the bottom catch pan with water. There is a float in the pan which will trip the unit into a mode where the pump turns on to flush out all the water inside the unit to avoid overflowing the pan and causing much more damage (to the subfloor and anything on lower stories or basement). As long as you have the unit turned on, the pump will run to flush out water. Until the catch pan is purged or enough water dries up.
At any rate, somebody needs to look at why the catch pan is filling up with water.

Water leaking from freezer


Check for a blocked defrost drain. Take the panel off at the back of the freezer section and find the small hole at the very bottom center below the cooling coils. Use hot (but not boiling) water and a turkey baster to flush it out until water runs through it. (it will go into the defrost drain pan, where it will evaporate)
This will prevent water from comming out the freezer door and leaking onto your floor and running down your copper pipe to the basement.

Heavy water leak in basement under fridge


Has this fridge got an ice maker???
Because ice makers require a water supply to make ice.
This could be where your water is coming from.

Plumbing connection to dishwasher leaking


Remove bottom panel and run dishwasher while monitoring it. A large leak may be from a hose off at pump underneath. Mice can chew holes in hoses too.
