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

Hello, my Hoover D7610 dishwasher has developed a problem, I would appreciate your advice.On starting a wash it appears to be working OK through what I believe to be a rinse cycle but then after about 20 minutes water pours out from the bottom of the door. Manually clicking the timer-programer forward stops the leaking but the machine needs manual advancement except for the last 2 cycles when the timer seems to work OK. After the 1st cycle there is no more water leaking from the machine but all

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?

I had my dishwasher installed in December. Thought it was leaking but couldn't catch it in action since it didn't start in the early part of the cycle. Now it leaks through the bottom of the door but it is on and off. However, when it leaks it leaks a lot. They sent repair person twice. Did not leak. This is a new kitchen and I have not installed a sink or countertops because I want the leaks to stop first.

I have a Bosch SGS43A22 Dishwasher approx 8 years old. When I start a cycle it fills, runs for about 15 minutes, then drops out about a litre of water from the bottom of the door, then completes the cycle without any more leaking. I have run the machine with the front panel off and can see that water bypasses the top of the seal and fills the well of the seal then pours out. It only happens the once. The seal is fitted correctly. Any solutions?


After 8 years service the seal may have perished, so you should feel for a crack by stretching the rubber where you noticed the leak. ... Bosch 24 in. SGS43C12 Classixx Free-Standing Dishwasher

I have a Kitchenaid dishwasher model KUDS01FLSS2. I finished replacing the door balancer cord and started the dw up and it started leaking underneath from the bottom somewhere around the middle of the unit.

Dishwasher leaking We bought our dishwasher in Sep/07, it was fine for a year, then started leaking out the bottom of the door on the left. We had the seal on the door replaced (didn't work) and then the door gasket replaced. That worked for less than a year, now it is leaking again in the same place. What could be going on? Have already put $400.00 repairs into this machine and am reluctant to put more money in to have it break again the same way. What do you suggest?

I own a KUDS01FLSS3 KitchenAid dishwasher. The lights on the control panel do not come on and a cycle can not be started. There is about an inch of water in the bottom of the dishwasher basin and it looks like the previous cycle did not complete. I have checked the wall outlet that the washer is plugged into and the washer is receiving power from the wall. And ideas? My next thought was to take the door off and check the power supply running to the door panel and control panel.
