Pin hole leak in metal under dishwasher

I have a Kitchen Aid KUDS230BWH0 dishwasher and recently noticed water leaking out onto the floor. I took the front lower panel off and discovered a small rusted out pin hole leak underneath. What is the best approach to repair the leak after it has completely dried out? J-Weld?

Difficult to weld stainloess steel. another way is to drill out the hole slightly and fit a small nut and bolt with fibre washers

Rinse aid appears to be leaking

Now, not knowing about the model you mention, I am going to tell you about the same problem I encountered with my dishwasher. We, too, started seeing water on our floor when we were running our "built-in" dishwasher. I checked the water level in the washer and it was not overflowing from being too full. So, I removed the panel at the front bottom of the washer so I could see the workings. First thing I did was to feel around for moisture on connections and other parts. When I got to the bottom of the pump, I did feel moisture. This told me that the pump was leaking. Unfortunately, most manufacturers nowadays use non-metallic metallic components and with mine it was made of plastic. When I removed the pump, I saw a crack in it along a seam (where it is molded together after the internal workings of the pump are in place). The pump turned out to be almost as expensive as a new machine but I was blessed. A friend of my son was remodeling his kitchen and that included a new dishwasher. He gave me his original one (which turned out to be a recently built one by the same manufacturer) and I installed it and haven't had a leak since.
Now, I hope that this does help but as I said, I am not familiar with your free-standing model.

Hello Mileshjr,

I don't disagree... Nice looking unit...

What you have to do is assess the LEAK(s)...
and do a cost/benefit analysis...

If indeed the parts are available (they seem to be)

Then all you have to do is find the cause of the
LEAKS and repair them...

Mine turned to be rusted body panels...
(not much you can do there... Unless you
find a complete DONOR... Not unlike restoring cars...

(the labor of love)...

Check out other part houses...

... and don't forget to check eBay.

I will confess the new PRO Series "QUIET" models
are VERY quiet... and sooo... pretty I had to REMODEL
the ENTIRE KITCHEN... (no savings there).

Hope this saves $$$$

I have a Kitchen Aid model#KUDS25SHBL1 and it leaks through the bottom of the door. What is the cause and how do I fix it?


There are two things that could cause this issue. The first and most common is a cracked feed tube. The feed tube is the plastic pipe that sits under the upper rack and feeds water to the middle spray arm. If this tube breaks or cracks it shoots water directly down toward the front of the door and leaks occur. The part number for a new tube is 3378144

The second thing it could be is the lower door seal, it clips onto the inner door liner at the bottom. It is part number4172127

Dishwasher is leaking

If the unit has a removable lower front panel, take it off and slide a sheet of news print under the machine so that the leak will show as a wet spot on the paper. This gives you a clue as to the location of the leak. That position will lead you to a leaking hose, pump, inlet solenoid valve, door seal, and so on. Hope this helps!

Major leakage onto kitchen floor

If you have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using a detergent that is sudsing too much. Cut back on the amount of detergent you use, and see if that makes a difference.

Water that spills through the door vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment.

Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).

Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses. The pump seal may be defective, too; replacing this is a job for an appliance repairperson.
Regards, Biswa.

GE dishwaher leaks with standing water in bottom

Check to make sure regular dish soap did not end up getting inside the dishwasher. This will create a lot of suds that will overflow onto the kitchen floor. Standing water from not draining can mean the drain hose is clogged somewhere or the check valve has something caught in it. If you remove the front kick plate, you will be able to check those.
