Dishwasher dripping from uderneath - cannot see where from...


Answers :

Dishwashers leak from two places: the front lower door gasket or. the hose on the fill valve under the water float. before you check turn off the dishwasher circuit breaker and, make sure the machine is dead
The leak is coming from the loose gasket in the fan assembly (blower) connected to the vent cover. What I did to fix my leak was a simple step of adding petroleum jelly (e.g., Vaseline) around the gasket holder and reuse the same gasket (clean all parts first, including the gunk inside the fan blower assembly) and the leak stopped!! My wife was so proud of me!

I noticed water leaking underneath my dishwasher through the floor joists to my basement. It was a small but steady drip through the joists. I turned off the water to the dishwasher and the leak stopped. I looked inside the dishwasher and there is still some standing water inside the dishwasher, but I cannot see anywhere that water is standing under the dishwasher. I am wondering if the leak is at the pump or at the door? But I see no evidence of the seal leaking.


This is probably the line that goes from the water inlet valve on the bottom of the dishwasher up to the valve leading into the dishwasher itself. It is probably a black corrugated rubber line. This is an extremely bad design, but the solution is s ... Frigidaire 24 in. PLD2850 Built-in Dishwasher

The soap dispenser on our Kenmore Elite dishwasher (SEARS part number 8558128) will not stay closed. The little latch mechanism appears to be working, but the spring on the lid's base keeps the lid wide open at all times. I have examined the pop-up dispenser lid to see if some sort of plastic tip held by the latch after soap is added is broken off- this may be the case but I cannot see any damage where such a lip may have broken off. Does the latch catch the lid by snapping onto a plastic lip? I


Yes its probably the little latch that holds the door closed thats worn out. ... Kenmore 15762 Dishwasher

I have a Bosch SD1306B dishwasher and cannot see the "normal" salt compartment. Does this model not need salt? Is the logo that looks like an eyelash the symbol for the descaler fluid for keeping the glasses shiny? The light is on there.

Leaking dishwasher My GE dishwasher leaks when running a load of dishes. The leak seems to be coming from about the middle of the tub about halfway back. I can't see exactly where it's coming from, but it appears to be dripping right behind the motor. Could it be a poor connection? I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks, Bob Engle I do not seem to be able to find the model number


Probably a leak at the motor seal where it enters the tub. Best to remove the motor if you can and inspect the seal. ... Dishwashers

My 14 yr old Magic Chef Model DU4K seems to be leaking (it is dripping into the basement just under where the dishwasher is located). it started when the arm at the bottom of the dishwasher did not seem to be moving so my husband took off the bottom "grill" to see if maybe there was something under there preventing it from spinning. It started to leak when he put it all back together (the bottom arm is still not spinning)

I have a GE Triton XL dishwasher that all of the sudden stopped cleaning well. I now find food residue on the dishes, and the detergent cup does not empty completely. I use the gel detergent, and I just see the gel dripping down the door after the cycle is complete. This machine is about 5 years old, and I'm looking to see if it can be easily fix. I rather not have to call someone to tell me that I have to get a new one, or pay more to fix it that what it is worth. Thanks

Dishwasher fills with hot water. Float OK - water feed stops when full. Motor humms but no water spray (in all opperating modes). Cancel selection (with cancel button) and close the door. The water drains then the unit shuts off. Water feed OK. Drain Cycle OK. Looks like spray pump hung but do not know. Cannot find a reset button (as with disposal) or way to free hung pump motor. I did see glass pieces in the drain. Possibly a small piece hanging the motor.


If you found broken glass inside the machine some has likely migrated to the pump. about the only way to fix that issue is to remove the pump and either replace it or disassemble it and clean it out. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP01FL Built-in Dishwasher
