\015 I have a 3yr old frigidaire gallery series GLD2250..... dishwasher and with no warning last night after I turned it on, it was on for appprox. 2 mins. and I noticed alot of water leaking out of front bottom. Opening it up I realized there was water in bottom about an inch deep, seems there is a clogged drain ??? your thoughts?\015

Answers :

This kind of leaking is usually caused by one of three things;
1. The rubber door gasket is cut, damaged, out of position, or defective.
2. The door latch mechanism is out of adjustment, or broken, preventing the door from closing all the way.
3. The dishwasher is overfilling with water. This is usually caused by a defective or gunked up float switch.
Remove the lower spray arms and the filter assembly beneath it. Rinse out everything you remove in the sink as needed.\015\012
\015\012With a flashlight, inspect the sump area down there and remove anything lodged in the drain area. Reassemble and run a short load, watching it closely for leaks from the front.\015\012
\015\012If problems persist, there are two possible problems: \015\012
\015\012a.) The float or float microswitch is not working properly.\015\012
\015\012b) the hot water inlet valve (selonoid valve) is opening but not always closing properly.\015\012

Dishwasher leaking Our dishwasher all of a sudden started leaking. I've taken the front panel off the door and can see exactly where. It's not a hole or anything...it's at the front, left edge of the basin, the bottom left corner at the front. It seems that right after it fills with water, it starts to leak once water is moving around inside and washing cycle starts. It is as if big waves are being pushed to the front left corner and over the lip of the basin. I don't think the water level is to

My trusty Bosch s510 Dishwasher which has been going strong for about 17 years (at least) has just decided not to empty itself. I noticed the bottom was full of water after a wash. I emptied all the water out by hand and presuming there is a blockage in the drain tried using a plunger to unblock it. I have since put it through another cycle and half way through water started leaking out of the front. At the end of the cycle the bottom of the dishwasher was again full of hot 'soapy' water. If th

I have a Bosch SGS43A22 Dishwasher approx 8 years old. When I start a cycle it fills, runs for about 15 minutes, then drops out about a litre of water from the bottom of the door, then completes the cycle without any more leaking. I have run the machine with the front panel off and can see that water bypasses the top of the seal and fills the well of the seal then pours out. It only happens the once. The seal is fitted correctly. Any solutions?
