    I have fitted a new inner door panel (which includes the rubber seal), first wash OK, second wash leaked across the kitchen (again). Water appears to leak only at end of cycle, and from sides. Maybe too much water in machine towards end of cycle ? Pump drains out water OK though - I believe the small amount water is supposed to remain in filter.

Hi, I had a similar problem. I removed the outer door panel and the inner insulation and found that the screws holding the detergent dispenser were loose and water was leaking through and running down the door. I also found that the wires had melted themselves to the rubber section of the dishwasher- probably due to the presence of the water. After tightening the screws the leak has gone. Now I've just got to replace the damaged wooden floor! Hope this helps.

Displays E1 code. water is on


Hi there Dolly, error code E1 relates to water leaking. Its the code the machine displays when the flood switch in the bottom of the machine activates. The flood switch activates when the bottom of the machine gets filled with water from a leak. I surgest you have a look underneth the machine for signs of water. I hope this helps regards Gary.

Hoover Dishwasher HD95M leaks on start up from bottom right front corner. Leaks when initially being fed from water feed.


Water leaking can be poor plumbing or fault in the inlet hose connection. You are the first observer and so your view on the leak area is important as the leak can be from the hose, from the inlet, the hose or the washer unit.
Based on this the water leak can be plugged, tighten the hose clips, check the inlet filter or check the washer's feed line.

AM14C slight leak at the bottom of the water deposit tank,


I love these machines. Keep it and fix the leak.

If you have a leak. You have to find out where it is coming from. Dripping water from the bottom of tank can be coming from a number of different places and at different times thru out the cycle. The rinse cycle or wash cycle or all the time.

The first place to check is the pump. It will leak during the wash cycle. Especially from the top gasket. This one commonly goes out.

The pump motor shaft seal will leak all the time but will drip from motor, not the tank area. You want to fix this before it ruins your motor bearings or motor.

But since you have a corner machine, the first thing to check is the rear door panel. This is were your door would be if you had a straight thru machine instead of a corner machine. It has teflon guides just like your actual doors and they do leak at times or all the time if the guides are
not sealing. IF food particles accumilate at the bottom of that panel it blocks the water from running back into machine and instead, onto your floor from the bottom of tank areas. This is anther common leak.
The teflon guides should be replaced if they have cracks in them or are brittle and flaking apart. Sometimes they slide down and can be push back up from inside the machine. In either case, you will need to clean all the crud from that back panel edge. Usually thats all I do to fix that leak is just clean it up and push those guides out to outside edge with the tip of my screwdriver to tighten the seal between them and the channel.

Hope that helps!

Dishwasher keeps flashing F1


F1 on your dishwasher is the fault code for leaking inside the machine. the water has caused the flood switch to activate. have you put any detergent rather than your normal dishwasher detergent into the machine? if you have, the water probably leaked out of your overflow, if not, then you have a leak on the top drawer or bottom drawer. the easiest way to check is to leave the machine off for a couple of days until it drys then turn on the bottom drawer to go thru a cycle.if the F1 comes up again then the problem is on your bottom drawer. if F1 does not come up then try the top drawer. please reply if you require further help.

My d1716 continues to run, but does not move forward in the cycle. I can even open the door and it continues running. If I didn't unplug it, the motor would likely burn out. Do I need a new dial? Thanks.


Hi

I would suggest that your flood switch has been activated. There is a float on the bottom plate or base plate of the machine. If there is a water leak, the float rises and triggers the flood switch.

Once the switch has been activated, the machine will go on a continous pump.

Disconnect the power and the hoses from the machine. Pull the machine out and lay it on its back.

If there has been a leak, you will notice water pouring out the back.

See if you can open the bottom plate, and reset the floater and flood switch. Sometimes you can access this by openning the front kick plate or front bottom plate.

Try the machine again. Leave the front bottom plate out and look into the bottom as the machine is working. If you have a water leak, this will happen again and you may be able to notice where the leak is from.

Be carful not to touch the live wiring while you are monitoring the machine.

Good luck

My GE dishwasher is leaking water from the bottom of the machine


first check to make sure door gasket is ok, if bad, replace and test. Make sure to remove bottom front panel during a test and inspect the motor and motor gaskets. It may be leaking here, replace leaking components as needed.

Leaking water


Your waste pump might not be clearing the water from the machine. When you open the machine, is there a visible pool of water at the bottom? Check that your waste pipe isn't blocked, and check and clean the filter basket underneath the bottom dish tray.

No water coming into machine. Programme not running because the machine is still trying to fill. If I add water the machine does drain. Was cleaned with a good dishwasher cleaner only last week. Nothing to...


Turns out that the dishwasher had a leak in the bottom. No water could be seen leaking out because Bosch machines have a cut-off valve that means if a tray in the bottom of the machine fills up with water, the float valve doesn't allow anymore water into the machine. we worked this out after we tipped the machine slightly, water ran out, when we put it back down and started it the inlet valve worked until the bottom had filled with water again.

New machine for us! However, not a critism of Bosch. We use our machine at least two or three times a day and have done for the last 5 years.
