Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The dishwasher is leaking from the inside front left corner. it ahs two small covers over this valve. underneath it has two electrical wires. when you turn it on, it leaks from that valve to the floor.


Answers :

HI. this is a inlet assembly issue. The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it. One hose will lead from the valve to the pump/motor assembly in the center of the dishwasher. Check that the hoses are securely connected to the valve and that there are no kinks in the hoses which could restrict water flow. There are two wires (four, if it has two solenoids) connected to the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire itself). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.

Use a continuity tester or multimeter to test for continuity. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. A reading of infinity indicates a bad solenoid that must be replaced. Different brands and models will have various measurements, but the valve should show some resistance if it is functioning properly. If your valve has two solenoids, test the second one in the same way as the first.

If the solenoid is working properly, but water leaks through the valve even when the dishwasher is off, then the valve itself is the problem. Debris may be preventing the valve from closing. If the valve cannot be cleaned, it will have to be replaced. The valve can also fail mechanically. So even if it passes the electrical test, it may still require replacement. If you have ruled out all other possibilities, go ahead and replace the valve.

***(((NOTE-- It i possible that the valve housing has cracked as well. make sure that the hoses are connected properly during your testing. If there are no hose issues, this will be a defective va;ve assembly)))

Sounds like you just need to replace the valve or if it is leaking from the connection, then some plumbers tape from a hardware store. Is it the inlet or drain valve? Can you give me the make and mode number of the unit? You can order a new valve from www.repairclinic.com if it is a common brand. Let me know how this turns out.

Our Kemore dishwasher is leaking water onto floor, and the water valve continues to pour water when machine was turned off, but is not leaking water now. There is also standing water at bottom of tub from running machine last night. Can I test to see if it is fill valve or the overfill float? Are these easily replaced?

Have a Kenmore dishwasher #665.1677993, approx. 13 years old. Upon starting new cycle the pump turns on for a few short seconds, then off, then after a couple minutes it goes on again for a few seconds then off, then later in the cycle it does stay on for a longer period of time. In conjuntion with this intermitent problem it has begun leaking out the bottom of the front door. I have checked drain line, check valve, strainer/screen and vent in the door. I assume it is an electrical issue?

Just installed an estate TUD6710S and on the first run it is leaking from the check valve. It is leaking from the pump side of the valve. There isn't any leak where I have the drain connected. I do not have a garbage disposal, so, there's not a problem there. The drain connection is 20" from the sub-floor... don't know what else to check.

RY80940 The valve under the pump is leaking. I think it is a pressure release valve but I am not sure. I tightened it when I had to re attach two bolts that were holding the motor on the metal case then it worked for awhile then it started to leak and I lost all power. Should I tighten or loosen it or is there a washer that needs to be replaced?

I have a General Electric Potscrubber dishwasher. When the cycle is finished, the water does not drain into the sink.I turned the unit upside down to look into the bottom. The motor turns freely. The instruction sheet I found in the bottom of the unit said to remove the filter screen and check the piston valve. I looked at what I thought was the piston valve, but I'm not sure how to check it. The line to the sink seems to be clear. The model of my unit is GSC3230Z03WW. The serial number is AZ627

The overflow air drain on top of the sink that is connected to two hoses under the sink is leaking. It leaks out the top onto the counter. I took it abart but am afriad I did not put it back together right. There is a rubber ring that I think must be for sealing and I put it directly on the counter and then screwed down the air valve over this and water s coming out of the air flow valve and all over the counter.

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

Just turned the dishwasher on at the wall and tap after it's been sat off for a day. It's done one cycle (eco) and now doesn't seem to be doing anything but flashing. The two lights flashing are the power and eco lights. I have tried turning it off on the console but it turns itself back on and continues flashing. It sounds like it's whirring but I can't hear water. It did have a small leak when we first plumbed it in if that makes any difference?

Magic Chef DU55CA-01 unit runs but when pump kicks on for discharge cyle water leaks on the floor from the what appears to be the solenoid part. The leaking stops as soon as the pump turns off. What part needs to be replaced? The unit was in storage for some time would this just be an issue with it sitting for some time? What is the best way to determine the real cause of the leak?

Dishwasher Leak I found water on the floor in front of my dishwasher one morning so I removed the panel and ran the dishwasher to check for leaks and found none.

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

Have there been similar complants?
