Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My GE Profile dishwasher is leaking under the tub. Its not a small leak, the water comes out as soon as it starts to fill. What may be the problem?


Answers :

You have one of two problems here. First of all remove the lower front panel on the dishwasher and get down there with a flash light and check it all over. The water leak is either where the water line is connected to the machine, or around the motor/pump seal. Close the door and turn on the machine. Now you will see exactly where the leak is. IF if is the motor/pump seal you may want to call a technician. If it is where the hot water feeds the dishwasher you may be able to tighten up the connection.

My Bosch Classixx (about 10 years old) dishwasher won't fill The problem has only started since I pulled it out and cleaned! The programme sounds are as normal but no water enters the machine. I detected a small leak on the inlet pipe and tightened that. The machine drains when I add water manually though it has made a lot of gurgling noises for some time now when draining. When tipped on its side water comes out of the bottom of the machine (not entirely clear but not dirty either). When upri

I have Whirlpool dishwasher DWH B00. Now it starts as normal filling water for a couple of minutes. Then it suddenly starts beeping and pumps out all the water and just contiunes to beep. This will happen in all programs. We have studied the users manual and cleansed the filters as suggested in the manual, but this doesn't help. There are now problems with the water supply. The dishwasher is not used very much, may be just twenty times. In the start it worked normally, this problem suddenly

Smeg DWF612WH dishwasher has developed a leak. Water comes out of the rectangular hole on the side of the water softner used to mount what looks like a level or pressure switch. A few seconds after the fill valve opens water leaks out, not a lot just a small trickle. After the washer has filled and goes ito its cycle, it does not leak again. Over the past weeks the problem has got progressively worse.

The start timer control cycles but nothing happens. The motor seems to gurgle while attempting to fill with water - but no water comes through. We have had this problem before and the repair person replaced the timer control board. Could this be the same problem reoccuring? I have also tapped and cleaned the water float as described by GE website.

I have an Asko DW1875 dishwasher (10yrs old) which has just recently started having problems. The initial symptom was that during a washing cycle, unit showed '1' and inside became very hot (melting some plastic cups/plates in unit). On further investigation (with diagnostic mode), the dishwasher is filling and draining with no problem. When circulation pump runs there is barely any water pressure in blades (just dribbles out) and water leaks into undertray via a plastic white tab near front (v

My ariston lsv 66 dishwasher will not start washing cycle. It makes the pumping noise as it normally does at the start of the cycle and some water enters the bottom of the machine but then it stops. I have checked to make sure that there are no leaks so the problem is with the filling up of the machine. I live in a hard water area and haven't used anything to help reduce the limescale so expect this to be playing a part. I have tried all the washing cycles but the same thing happens. Any advic

Miele 646 sc plus inlet tank solonoid valve on water tank leaking. We moved the machine from one room to another and now this valve is squirting out water. We replaced both door seals thinking that was the problem, then started the machine with a side pannel removed, and saw the jet of water coming from the solonoid valve on the water inlet tank. Any ideas.

I have a LG Dishwasher LD 14AW3 it fills and runs for about 30 min. It then appears that when it tries to rinse it cannot get water and flashes "1E". I disconnected the unit and when I moved it out of its position water was leaking from the bottom of the unit. after cleaning out the inside filter & the hard water filter I re-connected and found it worked. I ran a dishwasher cleaner through it at high temp. After a few loads the problem has come back. It is now located in MY garage waiting for me

Dishwasher will not fill with water, dishwasher sat unused for some time. it worked fine for 4 times, then it backfilled with water from the garbage disposal unit, and leaked out through the floor. When I start a cycle we hear what it sounds like a pump draining and then going to cycle without water coming in. It's a bum.

Hi, Dishwasher problem: When a programme starts, the machine fills with water then stops and the "check water" light comes on. To empty the machine, I used the reset programme which does empty the machine. Any ideas of about what might be causing and the solution to this? Many thanks, Richard


You will need to check the inlet valve and the water level pressure switch. It can also be a low pressure in the pump that is giving out the signal for the control board to shut off.\012So first of all check the water line throughly to confirm. ... Bosch 24 in.

Blanco dishwasher Hi. Saw your answer on the Blanco dishwasher. We have same problem. Dishwasher makes all the pump sounds it used to, but does not start to drain at cycle start, and then no water comes in. read the manual again and think we may have been washing up - ie sinks plugged. Could this have triggered something. You mentioned something about a "micro switch" could you tell me where would this be?. We have a BFDW 650 S. Thanks, Angie

Hi there My dishwasher (Miele G975 PLUS) drain light keeps coming on and the water won't drain. I can manually drain the water and the machine will then start again but as soon as it gets to the drain/rinse part of the cycle, the problem recurs. I have removed the non-return valve and it was clear of blockages so I am now out of options. The machine is only 4.5 years old. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

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

Hi my L G dish washer is coming up with E1 . It comes on after about 2 min it takes water into the washer then it hummes for about 30 seconds then comes up with E1 and pumps water back out. I have checked the hoses which don't appear to be leaking -I read somewhere in your answers about this problem that it could be the Water Level in Drum lowering, this means there is a leak on one of the pipes. More likely it is the Circulation Pump, which is responsible for pushing the water to the Spray
