Water leaking over rim

I've noticed that I hear a squeek, then run in to find that water has come up over the white rim and into the wall and flooded the floor. This does not happen when the water is filling the tub, but during the agitate / spin cycle. I can't pin the exact cycle down, as I feel that the machine MAY be trying to spin before releasing the water, which MAY be causing centrifugal force to raise the water too high. This doesn't happen all the time so it's hard to diagnose. My repair man original thought it was due to over-filling, and replaced a few parts. He then tried to replace the brake (I think). Nothing is helping. I have to listen for a light squeek and run to raise the lid so it won't overflood.

Samsung dish washer won't stop running event with the door open no leaks no water anywhere pump pushes water out drain hose


if you can hear it running even with door open its probably in a fault mode as this the only circumstance in which it will run with the door open, what you are hearing is the drain pump and its doing that because there is a leak in the base of the machine setting off its flood switch, if you pull the dishwasher out and lean it back you will see water run out the bottom, then you need to find where its leaking from

I have a jacuzzi whirlpool tub in my home that has started to leak at the three button control panel. Flooded out the bathroom so I cut a hole in the tile surround and when the pump is running it leak


First thing you need to do is remove some skirting so you can actually see where the water is coming from.
The 3 position control panel would only leak if the water was above it or covering it if it is located in the wall of the tub. That solution would only require the bather to NOT fill the tub quite so full.
IF however the water is coming from another location then that will be noticeable when you are checking for the water leak.

Dishwasher wont fill up with water


When you start the dishwasher you have probably noticed that it first drains water and is very important to hear that drain pump running all the time or stops after a while? Why?
If the drain pump runs constantly then the fault is in the phase of "drain water" or is activated anti-flood system. Reset point of pressostat is not reached after max. 120secs. Programme stop and can be continued after error remedy by pressing the programme key.

If the pump is running for a while and then stops, then the fault is in phase "fill up water". Switchpoint of pressostat is not reached
after max. 60 secs.

Usually built-in dishwashers has anti-flood system that responds in the event of water in the bottom of the dishwasher. Such a case, find and repair water leaks.

Hi, i've taken the top and sides off my Bosch dish washer sgs45e02gbas it has not been working. the problem is ....when you switch it on is there is a pumping/throbing noise but doesn't continue...


Hello Phillip,

The reason only the pump runs anytime its powered up is because the flood detector has detected water in the base of the dishwasher and until that water is gone only the pump will run.That flood detector is (when looking at it from the front) is in the left front corner,its a styrofoam disc with a rod in the center of it and has floated up activating the flood switch on the letf side wall where the water enters the tub (can be seen on the left side with side panel removed) if thier is no water in the base frame perhaps some foreign object has wedged itself under the sytrofoam disc holding it up. Until the water is out of the base frame only the pump will run as long as the flood switch is tripped.

Possible things that will make water be in the base frame are,
oversuds from too much detergent
a leak of any component or hose
a defective water level switch allowing it to overfill

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

I can herar water runnging inside the regierator.


You are probably hearing water running out of the unit during a defrost cycle. It runs inside a tube to the underneath of the refrigerator where it is collected in a pan and evaporated into the room by heat from the compressor fan.

Kenmore washer leak


With the machine unplugged and EMPTY disconnect the water and waster water connection from the wall and tip it forward you should then be able to access the pump.  Check the hoses running to the pump. (usually white plastic with 2 large and 1 small hose running to it.. you can also just move it away from the wall with it completely connected and run it thru a cycle to see where it is leaking from.
