You may want to inspect the seal around the door to make sure it's not worn out or has some foreign material stuck to it causing it to not make a watertight seal during operation. If you don't see any problems there, then you should pull the machine out from under the counter to see if the drain hose has been damaged or dislocated. Most dishwashers are fastened to the bottom side of the counter by two brackets. Open the door to the machine and look at the top where it meets the underside of the counter to see how it is fastened. It's usually just two screws. Once you've removed the screws you should be able to gently slide it out and take a look at the drain hose. You may also want to take note of the condition of the floor below the machine to see if there is any long term water damage that either needs to be fixed or will give you an idea of the location of the source of the problem.

Hope this helps!

Start light flashing. Dishwasher wont start


I'm guessing as you did not list the model number. Something similar happened on mine. Due to a freeze, there was a small crack in the inlet and water had slowly leaked. As a safety feature, the Asko has a tray under the dishwasher inside the overall dimensions. It has a float. When the float rises, the drain pump starts and the dishwasher will not start. In my case, the drip pan is not connected to the drain which gave me the drain sound, but did nothing to remove the leaky water.

I suggest you take the front bottom panel off the dishwasher and check for water/leaks.

Had same problem. Removed kick panel at bottom and found the wires from the freezer door near the lower hinge are very flimsy. The white wire was broken at the connector and the connector was corroded. Since I have no plans to remove the freezer door, I spliced the wires together with **** connectors and it's working fine.
GE could do better.

Leaking from the front


I had same problem but different model #.
The part under the spray arm came lose and the gasket was hanging out. Causing it to squirt water right at the bottom of the door and leaking out. I took it apart put the gasket back in the groove, screwed it back down and is working great.

LG dishwasher error code E1


E1 is a code that the dishwasher displays after detecting a leak. There is a sensor on the pan at the very bottom of the unit. Take the bottom front panel off, look under the unit at the hose coming off the pump and your fill line to be sure no water is dripping. Run the unit in a wash cycle while doing this if possible.

Rust ruining door at lower corners of ice/water dispenser.


when you dispense ice or water, you are allowing the drip tray to overfill and the water builds underneath the tray until the water reaches the point were it will leak down the front of the door. the water will rust the panel beyond repair. you will have to replace the whole door at this point. hope this helps.

Water drips from under door. the water is


There is a ventilator mechanism on the top right corner, behind the control panel / front cover.

******TURN THE POWER OFF AT THE BREAKER BEFORE STARTING, BE SURE POWER IS OFF ******

Open the door; remove all of the screws that hold just the front panel (not the controls panel). These screws are located on the inside of the door, around the outer edges. The front door panel will be able to be removed. Close the door with the front panel removed.

***IMPORTANT be sure nobody will come in contact with the exposed wiring (especially little kids) *********

Turn back on the breaker, turn on the washer, and run a quick rinse cycle. See where the water is coming from.

On my washer (same model) i had to replace the entire vent kit (sears parts ~$40.00) Call them with your model and serial number, or search online. Removal and replacement was very easy, and it did fix my leaking problem. Checked with the front door panel off and a quick rinse before I TURNED POWER BACK OFF and put the front cover back on.

Root cause?? From what I can tell, the solenoid stopper hardens over time, which allows for water from the spray arms to leak past.

Get it fixed now before you smoke the motor or control card. My part number was ABT35083501 be sure to double check model before purchasing.

Good luck!

Door leaks on the floor in front of my dishwasher


1. make sure dishwasher is level front to back and side to side.
2. check the main washer arm (WD22X154) on the bottom side for leaks. If you use heated dry, the heating elements can cause the part of the spray arm directly over it to soften and eventually leak. When water comes out that leak it can spray at the bottom of the door, splashing water inside it and resulting in your leak.
3. if 1 and 2 OK, watch how you load the lower rack. If dishes or a bowl direct water from the lower wash arm to spray against the bottom of the door, especially at the center of the door bottom, the resulting splash inside the door allows water to hit the outer door panel and drip out a one or both corners of the door.
