No, this is not normal. Sometimes a unit gets frozen (cold) and cracks plastic. Sometimes a hose gets pulled off.
The amount of water allowed to leak needs to be zero.

Pull the unit, get lots of light, mirrors possibly, and find what is leaking... Once you identify where the water is coming from, you will know how to proceed.

Zero water leaks.

Brand new Samsung Dishwasher DW7933LRA Flashing light "HEAVY" and will not start


Had a look in the user manual for your dishwasher.http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201211/20121101114232459/DW7933LRASR-00141A-02.pdf

Page 26 shows blinking Heavy light means there is leakage in the dishwasher. Most likely there is water in the base under the drain sump which could cause the flood switch to trip. Turn mains power to dishwasher off. Pull it out from under kitchen bench without breaking the hoses. Put some towels on the floor and turn dishwasher back and forth on incline to get water out. Wait a little and turn on. If no difference then you need to dry the base and find the source of the leak. More likely the door seal.

Leaking dishwasher


1-if it is brand new it should be under warranty 2-try changing soap brand, some suds up more than others and sneak past the seals 3- where is it leaking? (around the door, or underneath ie likely motor seal or plumbing) 4- check Plumbing connections 5-most "tubs" nowadays are one piece plastic, look it over carefully with a good flashlight. if you think you have found a crack remember where it is start the dishwasher and run it till it starts leaking and then open it and examine that spot-with the heat it may open up more or otherwise change

The 2 metal "clips" that secure the dishwasher to


door gasket possibly bad or another leak. Stop using dishwasher until repaired or you're likely to ruin your floor. I just had this problem before we found a leak and now we may have to replace the kitchen flooring.

Order new clips or the dishwasher could fall out onto the floor or even onto your foot.

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher that I have had for a year and a half - 8 months ago it broke and leaked into my kitchen ruining my wood floor which had to be replaced. Shortly after that the top sprayer...


I would check to make sure that the top spray arm wasn't over tightened when it was installed. That spray arm threads onto a plastic supply tube which is easy to strip, which will cause it not to tighten properly and leak down the side of the dishwasher and acros the floor.

Kitchenaid dishwasher is leaking


depends. take the lower panels off the dishwasher below the door right at the floor. Once this is done you will need a flashlight. If possible lay on the floor with the flashlight and activate the dishwasher. Look for the leak at that point. If it starts leaking in the drain cycle then the impeller is leaking and will need to be replaced. These can be a little pricey so take the model and serial numbers and call an appliance parts house for the cost and it is a little bit of a hassel to replace so only you will know if you want to tackle it yourself or buy a new dishwasher. If is leaking during the rinse cycle then the gasket at the base if the washer (where the motor connects to the dishwasher itself) has gone bad and this is a bugger bear to repair. So it's up to you if you want to repair or replace.

Good luck on repairs Hope I helped you some
