SOURCE: Miele Touchtronic G892 SC Water leak at base of door

check the rubber seal around the door to see if its torn or smashed. if it is replace it, could someone have set somthing heavy on the door while it was open that would have stressed the hinges. it is most likely one of these problems take a nail file and slid it gently between the door and the body of the dishwasher if it slides in easy where it leaks you know the seal is bad and replace it.

SOURCE: when washing dishes, the dishwasher starts leaking

The leaking could be caused by a couple of things. First check to see that the lower door edge and cabinet seals are intact and haven't been moved out of position, etc. (some DW's only have one seal, others have two) - can't be exact without model numbers, etc.)

Also check the water level switch, normally in the left front corner inside the wash tub. It is usually under a cover that is either held in place by a plastic clip or a small 1/4" screw holding it to the tub bottom.

Remove the cover and clean the float underneath, it's possible that it's gotten gunked up over the years and is sticking or has a buildup inside it that is causing it to not float properly, hence it'll allow for overfilling of the wash tub.

Put it back together and run a short rinse cycle to see if that has resolved the leaking. If not, it could be the float switch has moved out of position, but that is not a typical problem unless the DW has been removed recently and got damaged, etc.

Hope this helps resolve your problem! Best Regards!

SOURCE: water remains in drain after cycle is completed.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to some different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter.

Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.


First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then you may want to consider calling a professional plumber. He may need to replace the drain valve or hose.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

SOURCE: leaking from the dryer vent on base of door during

Before try to repair, gather the model and serial number from the unit and contact LG support line. There was a recall on early versions of the (energy saving) condensing drying cycle and specifically most of the components in the door.

If the problem is what I described above, this is not a warranty issue but a product defect/recall. Be firm with them, be polite and do not take no for an answer, asking to be "escalated to the phone guy's supervisor:"

Good Luck!

Hello,
CODE: LE (Low water level detected)
Action:
Please check that the level of the drain hose is not lower than the base of the washing machine.
Make sure the end of the drain hose is placed on the floor, and that it is not clogged.
You should also check for a water leak.
If there is no sign of any water, please switch off the power and reconnect.If the information code remains, contact the Samsung Service Centre.

However, if an error light is blinking on your dishwasher'scontrol panel, the panel must be reset before you can gain access. Blinkinglights on your washer control panel may signal a mechanical problem that needsto be repaired. If the lights continue to blink after you've reset the controlpanel, contact Sears to service omega washing mashine or considertroubleshooting the appliance yourself carefully.Instructions
1 Press and hold the "Heated Dry" button onyour omega washing mashine for four seconds to unlock the dishwasher controlpanel.
2 Press the "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash,""Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" buttons one after theother, in fairly quick succession.

WATER COMING OUT FROM DOOR AND DRAWER


On this washer  the seal was replaced ?Did it stop leaking after the seal was put in ? Front load hatch on this is in front area located on the bottom(base).Remove the front  to gain access and you can now reach the pump and  look for any blockage.After  you have found and removed the blockage,run the washer again and if any water leaks remain call your local  servicer .You may have a bad front boot (seal) or its just loosened and it need to be re- tightened.Any water leak should be repaired ASAP so you dont have even more damage to the machine and your home.If the repairman cant stop the leak on his first visit than have the Boot replaced on his second visit.
