I have water dripping from the bottom of the dishwasher where the drain line connects

Is there a gasket out there that goes between the bottom of the dishwasher and the drain spout for the floor drain?

Also look at the heater box on the side and the drain guides. it can have a leak inside run out down onto drain housing making it look like drain leaking

How can I get to the inside


If your dishwasher is Leaking check the following

Dishwasher Not Leveled

This is a very common reason for a leaking dishwasher especially if this was a new installation. The framing in a dishwasher is made up of mostly thin sheet metal, so if it is not sitting flat and level things can get distorted very easily. Watch the video on leveling your diswasher

Door Seal

This is not very common in most dishwashers. To check this look for rips and distortion of the seal. If it is ripped or distorted you will need to replace.

Dispenser Seal

This is a more common place for a leak to develop. This is easy to check, remove the front panel and carefully inspect around the seal for water dripping or stainage. If any is found replace the dispenser gasket.

Water Inlet Valve

Usually it is the connection to the water inlet valve that ends up leaking. Check this connection ( there is usually some sort of adaptor between the valve and supply hose) for leaks. Check the connection on the back of the water inlet valve also. Ocassionaly a water inlet valve will leak around the solenoid in this case replace the water inlet valve

Drain / Circulating Pump

Some dishwashers have separate drain and circulating pump. Some use one pump to serve both purposes. In either case you will need to check the housings for leaks along with all the connections. Some dishwashers have a seal that leaks down into the pump . This is easy and inexpensive to replace. .

Door Latch

The door latch can become loose or misalinged. Check both the striker and the latch. To adjust the latch you will need to remove the front panel and adjust switch until properly aligned.

Door Hinges

They can cause problems, but this usually only happens from opening a heavy load of dishes on the door. Occassionaly a broken spring or cable occurs. You will need to remove the toe kick and maybe the front panel to inspect.
Drain:
This is usually caused by a syphon effect or your drain line improperly installed. You can not attach your drain line from the dishwasher without having a loop in it. If you go directly under the floor with your drain hose, all water will drain out upon fill. Safest and recommended installation of drain hose is to your kitchen sink and attach the hose somewhere so it is higher then the bottom of your sinks.

I have to put a towel on the floor under the dishwasher because the water is flowing out of the bottom. We have cleaned the drain. Any suggestions? Could it be the gasket on the bottom of the door?


If the water is leaking from the door then it is usually
the corner door seals,worn or missing, if the water is leaking
out the bottom, then it is the pump itself. Inspect the pump visually for soap tracks
down the metal assembly holding the solenoid which controls the drain valve.
There will also be obvious water spots and even soap buildup on the floor and
it will drip during draining. Pumps are rather pricey, and sometimes approach
the cost of a new contractor grade unit. Hope it is just the door seals.

My clients unit is leaking substaintial water in


Check the drainage hose to see if its connected properly. it is located under the unit. it may be loose or, not connected correctly. if the drainage hose is connected properly, this will be a faulty water valve. replace if found to be faulty.

Our dishwasher was gushing water after a cycle


If you dish washer pumped or drained water up into you sink then you drain line from the sink or even further down is clugged up, Machine out drain line. A drip sized cable machine can be rented. I recomend a 1/4 inch line. You will only have to go frim the sink to the main line.

Door gasket or sealOver 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.

Garbage Disposal backing up in dishwasher


Most dishwasher have a check valve at the pump to prevent water from backing into the dishwasher. If the pump is electric there is a rubber flat that may be gone or not working properly. If that is the case you need to replace the pump. If the pump is part of the motor assembly then the pump and motor will need to be replaced. One other thing to make sure of is that you have the drain hose looped to the top od the dishwasher and then to the disposal conection. Its called a drain loop and all dishwashers should have it. Good Luck

Leak off pump housing


Sidewinder, sounds like it's leaking from the pump gasket or the water seal assy on the impeller. Check the locking ring to the pump housing and see if you can increse the pressure to the tub. Also check the tightness of the motor fan assy. to the impeller assy. tighten if necessary. Pump gasket part number is 912529. Impeller seal part number is 903494. Catriver..post back.
