Why is it leaking water onto top shelf


Most modern fridges have an automatic defrost that works by draining into a sort of funnel above the back of the top shelf.
The funnel is connected through the back of the fridge to a rubber drain tube that goes down the outside of the back to a heated evaporation tray under the fridge,
The hose and/or funnel can get clogged with disgusting yucky stuff, and the water spills over the top of the funnel onto the top shelf.
The fix is to clean all the bits. It's usually no big deal to take apart.
I have resorted to blowing through the tube from the bottom end and then cleaning up the mess, and brushing my teeth. Quite revolting but, that's the price I paid to become an expert.

Dishes are not getting clean. Dishwasher does not take off the smallest speck of food. Hot water works. Cycles sound the same


There could be a couple of things that might be affecting the cleaning ability of your dishwasher.
First,there is a pipe/tube that runs up the back of the inside of your dishwasher. This provides water for the top spray arm. The spray arm has a feeder tube that covers the pipe in the back. If for some reason the feeder tube has come dislodged, the water just drips back down into the dishwasher, never touching your upper shelf. My children used to put large items into the lower shelf and in so doing, would dislodge the upper spray arm feeder tube. Just pull out the upper shelf and check to see that the tube is in the correct position. This should solve the problem.

If not, it could be that the upper or lower spray arms may have debris that keeps the water from being forced through the jets. You'll need to flush the arm with the spray attachment on your kitchen sink. I sometimes use tweezers or a toothpick to dislodge bits of peelings, paper, or bone that manage to get into the sprayer arm.
I hope one of these tips helps. If it does,please come back to fixya and rate my answer.

Water does not seem to be hitting the top shelf of my kitchenaid dishwasher (kudro2fs). Powdered detergent is not partially unused and caked in dispenser. The dishwasher is 4 years old. What are the...


Hello,

the greatest possible problem is the tube that connects the upper wash arm to the water supply tube on the back wall of the tub is cracked so water cant get to the upper wash arm. That tube can be seen by pulling out upper rack and looking up at the bottom of rack, its usually grey and has a funnel on the back of it.

I hope this helps,

Fridge is dripping directly onto top shelf. It is


Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back/bottom of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curtain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking into the freezer and down the vent into the fridge instead of running into the drain hole...Please feel free to comment again if you have any other question.

Water driping on top shelfe from freezer,


The drain most likely was blocked by food debris and the water from defrost cycle had no where to go...unplug refridge...chip some of the ice along the bottom carefully or use heat gun to melt ice...when the tube becomes exposed put some hot water in the drip pan..this should help the ice melt in the drain tube....use a straw or curtain wire to clear blockage...you should see the water suddenly drain down tube...put everything back together...this is not a temp issue but more a blockage issue.

My Kitchenaid dishwasher not cleaning dishes on top shelf


You need to clean the jets on the machine arm with an old toothbrush etc... then clean out the debris filter on the bottom of the tub near the dryer bar. The calcification in the little jet areas causes this problem. This should help.

sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over
