Leak from dishwasehr drain

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?

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.

Water leaking onto floor from underneath unit,instead of into the water reservoir.

It's not unusual for a refrigerator to drip a little water on the floor after you replace the water filter-air trapped in the water dispenser system can make the water dispenser drip enough to overflow the drip tray below the dispenser. You can fix it by streaming a gallon or two of water through the dispenser to eliminate the trapped air.
If water drips on the floor from the back of the refrigerator, a leaking water inlet valve or cracked water system tubing could be the cause. A clogged or cracked defrost drain tube could also cause the leak. Defrost condensate water collects in the drain pan at the bottom of the refrigerator so a cracked or overflowing drain pan can also cause water to drip on the floor behind the refrigerator. Check the drain pan for cracks and clean out any foreign objects that may be inside the drain pan.
Excessive frost caused by a leaking door seal can also cause the defrost drain pan to overflow. Check the door gaskets and replace them if damaged.

Hotpoint model #ctxy14epjrwh slow water drip from inside of the refrigerator. inside the top of the frig, center, there are several components that appear to come down from the freezer. the lowest one...

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 centeroldtech2332_52.jpg

Water leak from Styrofoam insert of Kenmore 79202

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 tube may 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 baster will 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.

Kenmore elite - Water dripping from freezer to refrigerator

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

I have a hotpoint refrigerator model CSX24XJ that was leaking water out the freezer door. I found that the drain was clogged and fixed this but I cannot find the drip tray. Does this model have a drip tray...

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.

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
