There is a slow drip that appears to be from just below where the drain is in the dishwaher chamber. The drip is behind the large off-white plastic part that is probably the water pump. I would assume a bad seal or possibly loosening of the attachments where the drain exits the dishwasher/enters the pump, but have not yet removed the dishwaher to fully inspect. The dishwasher is ~2years old. Is this a common complaint? Any ideas on the cause? Is this fixable by a non-specialist?

Re: Leak from dishwasehr drain
Creilly, there is a clamp that holds the boot to the sump. It might be where you are leaking. This is not too complicated of a deal. You can either pull the dishwasher out to inspect it or drop the motor and pump assy with the boot attached. I have removed the pump and motor assy. by removing the drain hoses, disconnecting the wire harness. On the inside tub you would have to remove the filter screen and sump filter. The boot that clamps to the pump will be exposed. Push it in, remove the motor hanger, fold the boot over and pull out. As long as you have a couple inches of clearance from the motor bottom to the floor you can do it that way. To answer the first question, this is not a common complaint. Catriver..post back.

If there was a partial blockage in the drain at the ac box it is possible that water will still drip out over time . However some Toyota ac units use the same box for the heater core so I would be looking for a coolant leak in that area . Check coolant level and have a pressure test done on the coolant system to check for the leak. If the drain is in the frame under the car ,the water may be also from the windscreen plenum chamber that collects water from the windscreen and drains in that area.
That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment. The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water. The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the center
mcdevito75 here, Your coffee maker most likely needs cleaning, Water will leave deposits in the brewings ports over time and will have to be cleaned out, Follow your owners manual on cleaning your coffee maker.
Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use
and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater
comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost
drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the
freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.
Your drain tubemay be stopped up with ice at the upper end
because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the
evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it.
Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey basterwill usually clear it out. Flushing
it out with hot water and clorox may help. Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent
refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the
lower back of the freezer.
The air handler has either a drip pan with exit pipes on the side or a drain pipe and any of which could be clogged.. Find out were the water is supose to exit,, and at that end - tape a strong wet vac to suk out any clog or debris..
Your refrigerator has a defrost drain blockage behind the evaporator in your your freezer compartment. Some models like yours have leak in the turns as the water leaves the freezer. I recommend that you unplug and remove the cover to the evaporator and check the defrost condensate tray below the evaporator. A wet vacuum cleaner and poring a solution with clorox in the drain will help you clean locate the leak and where the blockage may be downline.. I do have the manual on yours and can help you solve this. Some times this is a factory defect and I can help you solve the freezing drain problem. Let me know, Sea Breeze
There is a leak somewhere in your defrost drain. Most times this is caused by a blockage near the area of the leakage. Below is a link to a very informative way to help you resolve the problem. Thanks. http://appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?topic=22.0 Yes your model has 2 drip trays. 1 is below the evaporator inside the freezer and behind the back wall covering the evaporator. The other is below the refrigerator next to the compressor where the condenser fan heats the water and returns it back to the air inside your home. Thanks, Sea Breeze
