Hello geoffdavies ,
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

It must be a hose leak or one of the seals around the, solenoid, or pump.
Or the least likely, if you ever heard a big bang ever inside the wash compartment!
I had a knife or fork that has been catapulted across the inside and it made a little body whole that that caused the leak. you may have not noticed because it is so small and only happens when it is on and running with pressure and a full load of water!
I'm only outlining all the possibilities!
And giving you ideas to check considering you sound like you did the repair your self.
Ideally to have it running and outside the whole you could see the leak.
Or we keep the front panel open and with a flash light in hand, lay on your back or side on the floor and look under the machine when it starts until you see the leak.
Let me know where the leak is!
Bless You Huuum,
please remember to enter a rating for me when you finish1
Thank You

How old is the dishwasher?
Here is an interesting report I just read!




Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.


Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

My dishwasher leaks. a small puddle is in front


The symptoms you describe, sounds like it could be caused by a worn door seal. Over time, these seals compress to the point where they no longer seal correctly, or food particles and grime get caught between the door and seal and leave small air gaps.

The following link explains some of the common causes of dishwasher leaks and what you can do to prevent them:

The part number for a replacement gasket for the model number you provided is 8268888.

This is a very simple repair. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please post back and let me know. hope this helps you.

Leaking water at the discharge line/selinoid???


If it is coming out the bottom of the door (ie around the bottom seal, it may be the dish washing powder. Had this issue on one machine and simply changing back to the one the manufacturer recommend stopped the puddles forming. I think it is due to the power being too sudsy and creating excess bubbles

Leaking dishwasher


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.

Dishwasher leaking


There is a front door seal that may be the issue. It seals along the door sides/top and continues under the door to seal the bottom surface when closed. Mine pulled out of the seal channel under the open door where you can't see it without a small mirror. The seal took a "fixed set" out of the channel so now it will not stay put. It requires replacement.
Hope this helps.
