Leaks water from under dishwasher, some one suggested the fill valve assembly needs replacing???? kenmore


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If your dishwasher leaks, check these:


Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.
The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:
Lower rack
Spray arm
Spray arm support
Wash/drain impellers
Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.
Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.
Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.
The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.
Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.


Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

HI, i would inspect the door seal. make sure there isn't any foreign objects that are getting stuck in between the door seal and tub housing. if the seal is clear of any objects(small objects), this will confirm door seal failuer.

simply replace the bad door seal in this case.

Water wont stop going in


You stated that your house is new. I see this frequently and what has likely happened is the installer used pipe dope to seal the elbow that screws into the bottom of the dishwasher water valve. They should have used Teflon thread tape instead as the pipe dope will get into the diaphram in the water valve, clog the tiny holes in it and ruin the water valve. The valve on the dishwasher will need to replaced. Hopefully the company that takes care of the warranty doesn't charge you for it. They should back-charge the installer.

Dishwasher leaking on florr


Hi.
It could be:
a dirty door seal
a clogged pipe on the pressure sensor causing it to overfill
a genuine leaking hose

Much depends on where it is leaking from. The door seals can be cleaned with a detergent laden cloth, hard grime removed with a plastic scouring pad or a blunt knife (with care)
A clogged sensor pipe needs to be removed and cleaned out - access will most likely be from beneath. While you are there you can check the hoses for leaks too!

As a starting point I would put a kettle or two of very hot water and a generous dose of detergent into the machine and try to let it clean itself. While it is doing that try to spot where the leak is. There may not be one if it was overfilling.

I hope this helps.

If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills. If they do not, please add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D

Bosch Dishwasher Door Leaking Steam


Pull the seal that is on the tank 1/2 way out then close the door. This will make sure the door is tight to the seal. This happens sometimes that the seal becomes flattened. I have been using this trick on Bosch dishwashers since this series came out in 1997.

Well did you check to see if the door seal is ripped or not on tight??? The door seal is the rubber strip that is used to seal the door shut tight, if this is wrecked in any way that might the the answer to your solution?
