I found water puddled on the floor, and the dishwasher was full of water in the bottom after the end of the cycle.

    Thanks. This is not a new installation, so the drain loop may not apply. However, the water valve problem is perplexing. Doesn't the water valve let the water into the applicance? The floater valve in the front of the machine is doing its job.



    The problem seems to be be when it is draining. More water puddles on the floor.After more investigation, I believe there may be a leak in the bottom outflow area. Are there any seals or other issues that may contribute?

    Thanks,

    Don

Since the drain pump will pump the water out using the "cancel/drain" button, if it did not work then your problem is likely to be in the drain hose system or the garbage disposal downstream from the drain pump. Check for kinks in clogs in the drain hose. Grease can build up in the portion of the drain hose just before it attaches to the garbage disposal.

If you are having problems getting the water to drain out of your dishwasher then there are a few things that you need to check out.

First check the drain hose that it has not gotten pinched anywhere. Then check it to see if it may be plugged with dirt and debris. If you have it hooked to a garbage disposal make sure that the hole into the garbage disposal is open.

If all of that checks out, then check the screen inside at the bottom of the dishwasher. Excessive food buildup will block the flow of the water into the pump.

If that is clear then you may need to remove the bottom rack, and the bottom spray arm. This will allow access into the pump. Some dishwashers have a diverter flap that opens to allow the water into the bottom impeller, which is the pump out impeller. Also check that the bottom impeller is in good shape and not deformed. The switch that operates the diverter flap can also go bad. You need to check that it can operate and that is does if power is applied to it.

By checking all of these things you should be able to find your problem. You may have to take the time to eliminate the problems one by one till you get to the cause of your problem.

Dish washer will not empty all the way out when cycle is complete


Try checking the outlet pipework, it may not be all downhill, problem with dishwashers is they tend to have standing water in the drain, you need to make sure the pipe has a good tilt, and flush your pipes regular with a cleaning agent for dishwashers.

Dishwasher is leaking water. Water is puddling


There is a tube on the side of your dishwasher for over flow. It sounds to me like your washer was moved and it banged against that line. You can put some caulking around where it enters the washer and that should be fine. The bottom can be several things. If your washer was removed and reinstalled like say maybe floor installation the supply line, or waste line may not be tight. If your unit has not been moved recently it is most likely the motor housing. Take off the one or two covers on the front bottom of the washer. Place the washer through the cycles and with a flashlight see at what cycle and where the water is coming from. It it appears to be coming from the white housing it's the motor. It's cheaper to just replace the unit as these motor housings are around $150.00. Check out craigslist. Hope this helps.

Leaking from the lower right hand side during rinse cycle.


I had the problem with dribbles of water from the right side lower edge of the door, causing puddles across the floor.
Found there was a RECALL on MDB6000AWW models. The door inside panel was replaced by the dealer for free. No more puddles.

It sounds like the fill vlave is stuck open. This can happen if your pressure is low or if the machine is old. I would start by replacing the vlave.

GE 720 Potscrubber I started with the water puddling in bottom now it progressed to leaking on the floor. I had a repair guy come to my home yesterday and he says a broken seal and my total cost to replace seal and labor is $165 plus tax.
What is the life expectancy? He did not sound too promising about the future of my dishwasher and said he is certain there will be another repair need shortly something related to the water saturating an area underneath the dishwasher?
He reccomended I call Sears and replace with a Whirlpool product. He claimed he put his kids thru college repairing GE products. My husband wants to repair and I dont because of fear of spending more money!

Water in bottom of dishwasher


You could have a defective fill valve that is not shutting off properly. Look for a fill inlet opening somewhere on the inside casing of the wash tub. Usually it is on the left hand side of the machine looking in. While the dishwasher is sitting idle, watch the fill valve opening to see if water is leaking in. It could be a minor as just a drip. However, over a period of several hours you could end up with a wash tub full of water. Over a weekend with no one home, it could overflow onto the floor. The valve usually cannot be repaired and would require replacing. Good luck.

Leaking dishwasher


Are you washing cereal bowls or mixing bowls on the bottom rack? If so, are you placing them in front? Sudden leaks that form huge puddles can often be attributed to improper loading of the dishwasher. Most dishwashers don't have a seal across the tub front. The door closes over it and does a pretty good job of deflecting water back inside the wash cavity. However, if you place bowls in the front on the bottom rack rack they can divert the water right over the tub lip and onto the floor. This is usually the culprit that causes most leaks in dishwashers. Now, if you don't think you have a loading problem, remove the kick panel on the bottom of the dishwasher and check the drain line and pump housing for leaks. Check the door gasket for tears or cracks. Lastly, feel inside the bottom of the door with your hand. You should be able to feel the door insulation. If it is wet, then the problem could be a leak around your soap or rinse-aid dispenser. Depending on the model, some dispensers are mounted to the door with a gasket behind it. Sometimes this gasket can form leaks. I hope this helps.
