Check your spray arm that nothing got stuck in its holes. make sure the spray arm is turning all the time when using the machine :
put the spray arm in 90 degree position, turn the unit on , check that the spray arm move...
make sure your seal of the door is clean and nothing prevent it to close evenly the door...
good luck 911servicetoday . com

change the door gasket. also check to see if the wall hasn't "sprung out" of position this will always cause leaks if the side walls aren't supported.

Miele intake valve


Dishwasher Not Leveled

This is a very common reason for a leaking dishwasher especially if this was a new installation. The framing in a dishwasher is made up of mostly thin sheet metal, so if it is not sitting flat and level things can get distorted very easily. Watch the video on leveling diswasher

Door Seal

This is not very common in most dishwashers. To check this look for rips and distortion of the seal. If it is ripped or distorted you will need to replace.

Dispenser Seal

This is a more common place for a leak to develop. This is easy to check, remove the front panel and carefully inspect around the seal for water dripping or stainage. If any is found replace dispenser gasket.

Water Inlet Valve

Usually it is the connection to the water inlet valve that ends up leaking. Check this connection ( there is usually some sort of adaptor between the valve and supply hose) for leaks. Check the connection on the back of the water inlet valve also. Ocassionaly a water inlet valve will leak around the solenoid in this case replace water inlet valve

Drain / Circulating Pump

Some dishwashers have separate drain and circulate pumps Some use one pump to serve both purposes. In either case you will need to check the housings for leaks along with all the connections. Some dishwashers have a seal that leaks down into the pump . This is easy and inexpensive to replace.

Door Latch

The door latch can become loose or misalinged. Check both the striker and the latch. To adjust the latch you will need to remove the front panel and adjust the switch until properly aligned.

Door Hinges

They can cause problems, but this usually only happens from opening a heavy load of dishes on the door. Occassionaly a broken spring or cable occurs. You will need to remove the toe kick and maybe the front panel to inspect

Drain:
This is usually caused by a syphon effect or your drain line improperly installed. You can not attach your drain line from the dishwasher without having a loop in it. If you go directly under the floor with your drain hose, all water will drain out upon fill. Safest and recommended installation of drain hose is to your kitchen sink and attach the hose somewhere so it is higher then the bottom of your sinks.

Electrolux dishwasher error code 01


I found the error codes in the owners manual, (01) is a leak. I called customer service (no wait time) and they said there is pan under the tub that will contain and detect water if it leaks. They said I could wait for it to dry out. They said there could be a hose that became loose or had a pin hole in it. After I hung up with customer service I did my own problem solving. The diswasher washing cycle was just started. Then then the door was opened 5 to 6 times to add more utensils and dishes while the the machine was running. Then the error code came on. this was the first time this had happened. I beleive water seeped doen through the hinges and the seal into the pan. I unpluged the dishwasher and disconnected the water line and pulled it from under the counter. Then lifted the diswasher onto 4 inch blocks of wood placed under the feet. This made it easier to access the pan. It had 2 screws inthe front and 1 in the rear with 3 clips. I removed the pan and dried it. Inspected the hoses under the unit and determined none of them had appeared to be leaking. I positioned a fan to blow under the unit to speed up the dry time, about 1/2 an hour. Put everything back together and ran a high pressure hot water cycle and found no leakes, so far.

Dishwasher won't start


may be in flood mode. tip the unit sideways and see if water leaks from the base if so continue to tip it until it all drains out, then start it on a wash if it starts you have a component leak that will have to be sourced.
