Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Water coming out under the dishwasher onto the floor.

\015 The water has been seeping out for about two weeks. I thought it was coming from somewhere else, but I finally figured out that it was the dishwasher. I don't know what to do. I need someone to come and look at it, and if the dishwasher is bad, I want to get rid of it. I put fresh dry towels down on the floor every couple of hours. The house was build in 1992. I imagine that it was bought at that time.\015

My Bosch SHX46A dishwasher keeps filling up with water and won't stop. The water just keeps coming up through the bottom. It will drain fine, but after the cancel drain sequence, water just keeps coming up, overflowing the tub onto the floor. I had to shut off the water.

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (2004) and recently it has been leaking internally at a very slow pace. When not in use it will slowly fill until the floor of the unit is filled and then leak onto the kitchen floor unless we press the drain button and then it drains completely. The water seems to be coming from the front of the washer, potentially from the door itself. The amount of leakage is barely discernible but will fill over the course of a 24 hour period. The dishwasher otherwise wo

I have an LGF6920ST dishwasher, puchased 18mos ago. since i've had it, it's gone from marginally ok to bad, now leaking puddles onto my floor from the lower left side (as i face it) of the door. besides occasional poor drainage, smelly water in the bottom to horrid cleaning (yes, it's attached to the hot water, i use rinse agent, etc) i rinse my dishes, in fact scrub them before putting them into this dishwasher, and honestly they come out nastier than when i put them in...primary concern righ

Hi, I have a Kleenmaid Dishwasher and the anti-flood system is being triggered (when I tilt the dishwasher, water runs out onto the floor). I am quite sure the leak is coming from the pump as the dishwasher stops during a drain cycle. How do I take of the panels to check what the problem is?

I own a Miele G977 Plus dishwasher. There is what looks like a vent at the top left corner of the door. During the course of a wash a noise that sounds like a fan comes from this vent.

Hi Tom, welcome to Fixya.\015\012\015\012The issue is likely just the blower and housing drain hose blocked with "crude" from time & use. If you take the door panel off ( watch those edges they are VERY sharp ) and unfasten the control panel as well ... Dishwashers

My Whirlpool Dishwasher ADP931 has stopped working. It stopped in the middle of the cycle with 2 to 3 inches of water on the floor of the compartment. I mopped out the water and tried to restart the dishwasher. The green "on" light now comes on when I press the start button. but nothing happens (no motor comes on,no water enters).Repeating the above action several times does not help the washer to restart even though the other function lights will come on when the knob is turned. saturn1914

Leaking Dishwasher seems to be leaking. Otherwise it's performing fine. I have laminate floors, and there are water seeping out along the seams of the flooring area near the dishwasher. The dishwasher is captured by the floor (dishwasher was installed first then floor was put in at 1/2" higher level), so we can't pull it out to check where the leak is coming from. Can dishwasher be repaired from the inside w/out removing it from where it is? Only way to pull it out seem to be cutting a part of

Our KitchenAid KUDS011JBS1 dishwasher sometimes leaks water on our kitchen floor. It seems to drip from the bottom edge of the door onto the floor. It's not a huge amount of water, but is enough to be a concern... it leaves a small puddle on the floor. What should I check and how do I fix this? I'm hoping it's an inexpensive and easy fix. Note that we've had this dishwasher for 8 years and have only noticed leaking during the past 6 months.

Leaky Dishwasher I recently moved into a new house that has a brand new Magic Chef dishwasher. We haven't even had a chance to use it, but last night discovered water leaking from the bottom onto the floor. When I opened the door, there was about 3-4 inches of water inside. I baled as much of the (slimey) water out as I could, and that stopped the leak. Now afraid to run the dishwasher for fear that it might leak even worse. E71195 Type 777-0

Leaking FDW60 I have a Hotpoint FDW60 dishwasher. yesterday it tripped our house electrics and then we had water flooding out of the dishwasher. Through a process of elimination I have now discovered that water is leaking from the drainage sump in the centre of the babse down onto the motor or other electrics. I have looked for loose hoses and there are none visible from the base of the dishwasher, can you give some ideas where the water might be coming from?

Dishwasher flooding Hi my Asko D1716 Super Cleaning System Dishwasher has started to have a flooding problem. When the cycle finished last night it seemed fine then in the morning the machine was full of water, I scooped out the water and by this evening the machine had flooded onto the kitchen floor.
