Question about Westinghouse Dishwashers

1 Answer

Me and my partner just bought a new house and yesterday we tried the dishwasher for the first time. I'm not sure which model we have, but it is a white Westinghouse Dishwasher with 5 wash options. The problem we have is that there seems to be water leaking from the bottom of the dishwasher at the front (sort of where the door is attached to the dishwasher). Do you know what we can do about this?

If the dishwasher has been setting for a long time the seals in the pump could of dryed out. Go ahead and run the dishwasher again and it could seal itself back up if not..... you will need to call a repairman to replace the seals. Or buy a new dishwasher if the unit has some age on it. You will get a new warranty..... I would also tell your realitor about it and maybe she could help you. The appliance may have a 30 warranty with the purchase of the house.......Hope this helps...

I would start off by unplugging the unit (under your sink) for awhile which should reset the electronics. Then try it again. If that doesn't fix it, then it is probably your control board that is bad.

I believe you may be over sudsing, Try a few cycles with vinegar and no soap. Do not use dishwashing soap at any time ever. See if the vinegar trick helps...helijm
