Hi there,
dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, check these:

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom
of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you.
But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the
entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from
leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher,
remove the:

* Lower rack
*Spray arm
* Spray arm support
* Wash/drain impellers

Then try the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly.
You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the
rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten
or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues
to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the
dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the
leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

My Danby countertop dishwasher won't wash-the dishwasher detergent is never used at the end of the wash and nothing is clean


Was it working before, and now has stopped working? If so, it sounds like it has poor water circulation. It might be caused by a leak. If you have not noticed a leak, it might be clogging due to hard water deposits. Do you live in a region with hard water?

You really must get a service manual. But if you cannot find one, simply open up the inspection hatch, and look for the source of the leak, usually around the Pump, filters etc, often a fitting has come loose... as related locate and repair your leak.

NO WATER GETTING TO DISHWASHER FLITERS CLEAN AND NO GLOGS AND SPRAY ARM WONT SPIN


Check the base of the unit for a small float or a little water.
There is often an "Aqua stop" valve to prevent accidental flooding. even a little leak will stop it.

If there is no water visible, then you may need a replacement inlet valve.

My hotpoint aqarius dc26 dishwasher has stopped


this may be caused by a leak your dishwasher as a build in anti flood switch which stops water from entering when it leaks into the base of dishwasher . You may be able to check this for yourself by unplugging your dishwasher and slowly pulling it out and lean it back if water runs on to your floor you have had a leak .if at this point you turn it back on it might start to fill again .if it does start to fill turn it off again . it will need further examination to see why it leaking .if you feel you can't do this call your local engineer .

Frigidaire GLD2445RFS0 dishwasher has developed a door leak


Make sure the lower spray arm ends (there are 3 arms) are snapped together all the way. One of ours had come apart and was spraying water out the end of the one arm. It was enough to "spurt" water past the plastic gasket at the bottom of the door. I snapped the arm back together and BINGO. Free fix.

The plastic connector separates from the metal faucet attachment when I turn on the water (PS I have the Danby 496)


IF IT IS NEW, PARTS SHOULD HAVE A 1 YEAR WARRANTY.
GO BACK TO THE PLACE YOU PURCHASED IT AND HAVE THEM ORDER A NEW CONNECTOR. IT SHOULD COME WITH
THE HOSES AND ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS UNSCREW THE
HOSES FROM THE BACK OF THE DISWASHER AND INSTALL THE NEW ONES. IF IT IS OUT OF WARRANTY, MAKE SURE ALL OF THE SCREWS ARE TIGHT IN THE CONNECTOR. OTHERWISE, REPLACE THE CONNECTOR.
