Hi, thanks for using FixYa.com! Sounds like maybe a sudsing issue! If this is the case, put about 1/2 cup vegetable oil in tub and run for a minute or two. Try canceling out after oil has taken care of the bubbles!

I have to put a towel on the floor under the dishwasher because the water is flowing out of the bottom. We have cleaned the drain. Any suggestions? Could it be the gasket on the bottom of the door?


If the water is leaking from the door then it is usually
the corner door seals,worn or missing, if the water is leaking
out the bottom, then it is the pump itself. Inspect the pump visually for soap tracks
down the metal assembly holding the solenoid which controls the drain valve.
There will also be obvious water spots and even soap buildup on the floor and
it will drip during draining. Pumps are rather pricey, and sometimes approach
the cost of a new contractor grade unit. Hope it is just the door seals.

Roper Dishwasher leaks from float or float switch onto floor


you could be usiong way to mauch soap try filling only one of the soap trays or even try doing one wash without any soap at all
this unit tends to do this if you have to much soap in the unit left over from the last load...
beyond that your machine is proibaly tilted to far forward you can lift it, by lowering the front legs begind the toekick

At some point the dishwasher leaks onto the floor. what could be the possible problem?


this are the possibilities for the leak :-----
Door gasket loose/torn
Corner gaskets or door baffle/vent gasket
Door lock/latch loose/broken
Split spray arm
Over filling with water...usually the level is just under the heating element is normal
Something leaking through the door...like the soap or rinse agent dispenser gasket, silverware basket button.
Door hinge(s) bent
Wrong soap was used...dish sink soap instead of dishwasher soap
Rinse aid being used with mechanically softened water ( makes foam or suds inside the dishwasher )

Leaks from under the unit:
Look for whiting or calcium stain on the motor and pump assembly = motor and pump assembly seal leak...access panel removal help
Hose for upper spray arm split
Fill hose split or fill hose spout air inlet is calcium covered
Drain hose is split
Rusted liner...metal liners only
Fill valve leaking or allowing water to fill all the time
Heating element ends....where they come out through the dishwasher liner
Float or float gasket.

So water leaks out onto floor-Jennair side by side


THERE IS A DRAIN LINE HEATER ON MOST UNITS now days, if yours is an older one what you need to do is make sure that it's level, and that the drain line is cleared so that the water has a place to go when it thaws during the defrost cycle.
