Diswasher Leaked, now Won't Work

Hi, Our Bosch has run without trouble for six years, but yesterday I discovered a puddle outside it and the machine in an endless growl. I think that's the pump trying to remove water, but the dishwasher was almost dry. Dishes were clean. Now the machine merely growls whenever I turn the power on. Buttons appear to work to start a new cycle, but as soon as I shut the door the growl is back and no water enters. Any advice on simple things this mere homeowner can do to check out and possible fix the trouble? Thanks.

    bigg t,

    Thanks for the strategy. I'll look around in there and see what I can find. It makes sense that the float would be stuck, making the poor thing believe there's water when there's not. Am I going to need to pull the unit out for this kind of thing? I guess I'll find out soon enough.

    Hi all,

    Amazingly, the problem is fixed. All I did was to prime the drain pump by pouring in a couple liters of water. I put the water in, set the dishwasher to start and the machine performed flawlessly. I guess the trouble was simply with a faulty seal when we did the dishes the previous time.

    I really appreciate the help folks have given me here. This is how the internet can make the world better.

If you see a float inside of the dishwasher make sure its cleaned well.that float tells the control board when to drain and to fill with water.the symptom you descibe tells me its trying to drain,make sure the float moves freely.if you dont have a float you will see a metal probe clean that up as well.try this and if it doesnt fix the sensor may be part of the drain body and it has failed(leaking).

I have a problem that appears to be a bad motor on a Whirlpool dishwasher. The motor costs $300 and the dishwasher is about 6 years old...Does it make sense to replace the motor or just replace the...

Hello, W/D here.
I try to work replacement vs. repair like this:
If the cost of repair is greater than 50% of replacement, I always go for the replacement. My reasoning is that the remainder of the appliance is more likely to develop faults, and a new one is less likely to be trouble.
My 50% rule can go down lower if I have already had any trouble with the machine, or if it has significant age on it.
In my opinion, your case is right on the bubble.
I have replaced motor/pump components, only to have the pump go out again after six months ($200). When faced with another $200 for the same repair on the same machine (with me doing the work), it became too much to bear. I elected at that point to replace it. You very well may get another six years out of your dishwasher, but then again, you may not. In the next six years, other things may break. If you feel like your machine will be serviceable for the next six years after making your repair, then go for it. On the other hand, a new machine will have a warranty, and an extended warranty will be offered at extra cost.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that you could go either way in my equation, and still be OK, probably. Let your feelings guide you, and you'll make the right decision.
Best regards, (and let me know what you decide), --W/D--
