Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Dishwasher leak My dishwasher has a slight dip leak on the copper hose that rund from the hot water. The leak is between the copper hose and its connector nut. I tired fixing it with plumbers tape but it still leked out the sides of the tape.


Answers :

Tape won't solve this issue. The fitting I assume is a compression fitting which is a ring on the copper pipe that is compressed when the nut is tightened. If tightening the nut won't resolve the issue, then you will need to cut the copper behind the ring and put a new ring on an retighten. The key with compression rings is to make sure the copper is pushed into the male part on the fitting until it bottoms out before tightening the nut.

Leaky Tub our dishwasher was leaking quite a bit. i checked all the hoses, and connections, it turns out that there were two screws from underneath protruding into the tub, near the rear on either side. If any one knows if the tub could be fixed or replaced could you let me know? Also if this was a manufacturing problem shouldn't sears be responsible?

Dishwasher Leaking Dishwasher leaks from underneath the right front side of appliance. Can't tell exactly where it's leaking from, because of plastic guard/support on underside. All of the connections and hoses are in good shape. I'm assuming that it has something to do with the draining process, as it will leak 2-3 times during a wash cycle. Sometimes it's very little water and sometimes it's as much as a gallon.

My GSD900G-01 dishwasher leaks where the hot water is supposed to go into the tub. There's a plastic fitting that seems to be glued to the side of the tub and the hose from the inlet valve goes to the top of this fitting. There are no visible cracks or other damage but there is some rust inside the tub at the fitting. The fitting has two open gaps on it's side which is where the water is leaking out. It looks like the water is supposed to flow past these gaps (which I'm guessing are there to

Our dishwasher had to be removed. In reconnecting it to the water supply under the sink, the plumber could not keep it from leaking. I think there was a rubber washer that got lost during the disconnect/connect procedure. He then proceeded to gut off the end of the PEX hose which has a ridge and the last 1/2 inch is a little smaller than the hose. Now he says we need to order a new PEX hose from the factory. The PEX hose is too big to fit into the fitting. Cannot a normnal flex hose for thi

It leaks down on to the hose connecting to the water inlet valve on the right hand side of the unit when looking at the door of the unit.

I have a Bosch dishwasher that was working just fine until I spilled a bag of uncooked pasta. I sent the pasta down the drain and ran the garbage disposal, subsequently clogging the pipes. I had to get a plumber to fix the drains, but he wouldn't unclog the dishwasher. I have tried myself to go under the sink and drain some hoses, but it didn't work. I also put some baking soda and vinegar into the drain, but no luck. What can I do?


It may simply be where the dishwasher drain attaches to your garbage disposal. There should be a hose clamp and can easily be taken off. If the clog's not right at the connection, chances are it's far. If there is an air gap, it will be within a f ... Bosch 24 in. SHU66C05 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
