My 1998 GE dishwasher leaks. Into the floor, now I see stains on the ceiling below. What to check? Door seal is fine. The dishes get washed. Pressure is good to go. No water out of the front of machine, seems to be coming from below. Take panel off and inspect connections? How about line from sink? Is there a site with illustrations or video repair about this specific problem out there? Any help is greatly appreciated...

BF41 Dishwasher with a leak stuck in mid cycle Hi, I have a 'general domestic Appliance Ltd' BF41 (95+G709394) dishwasher which recently started leaking at the door.

A couple of day ago I couldn't stop it leaking and now it's stuck in mid cycle and even though the water is washing inside the machine it never gets hot inside or finishes the cycle.

I have a Miele 24 in. G638 Plus Free-standing Dishwasher which is leaking into the pan underneath the machine (and triggering the polystyrene float switch) I am almost certain that the leak is coming from the main pump seal. Is it feasible to replace the seal (it looks like a major job to take the pump assembly apart). I guess Miele labor charges would make the repair not worthwhile Is there a service manual for this machine. I guess I would need it

Our maytag dishwasher has been a perpetual problem. The door hs been falling apart for along time. We babied it and tried to get it to last as long as possible. We bought an extended warranty last fall. It was not cheap. Recently we contacted a service center concerning the problem because we had not been able to use the washer. Maytag refused to repair or honor the extended warranty. They blamed our abuse on the problem. They have no proof. We have tried to keep good care of it. It ju

I have a Maytag DWU8250BAX and the thing leaks like crazy. I just replaced the door gasket, but that is not the problem. When I took a closer look at the door it seems as though the water is getting up and into the door through a space in the bottom of the door. It seems to me like there should be another door seal to fill a gap that sits between the door hinges. If anyone knows if there should be a seal here and then what the part number might be that would be great. Thanks!

The Simpson Silencio 850 door does not shut properly and the dishwasher stops operating,but once you push hard on the door,the dishwasher starts again. There are no leaks ,but the door must have a sensor registering the correct pre-load force against the door seal , which in turn,allows the machine to operate. My machine does not work until you push hard against the closed door. What is the problem please?

FDW60 dishwasher Hi My dishwasher is about 15 months old and the problem I have is that it seems to stay on pump and the Ecco45 light is flashing.  A repair company looked at the machine and said that the motor looked like it was leaking and water was getting in the bottom setting off the micro-switch.  He contacted Hotpoint who fitted a new motor today at a cost of £89.85.  Went to use dishwasher tonight and we still have the same problem.  The dishwasher started the washing programme for about

Had some problems with a crystaline Deposit on the left side of machine. we checked the inside of the dishwasher and made sure all was clean etc. After that the light wouldn't go out. Had machine serviced. Turns out we were using too much diswashing powder Only need to use about a Teaspoon (heaped) for a wash not the recptacle full.

I have a Bauknecht dishwasher GS 835 S purchased in 1986. Since moving it while having kitchen refit there are two small leaks. One is from the hose that goes into the bottom of the machine towards the front, and the other is a drip that comes down between the front facia panel and the machine door. Possibly the door seal is slightly perished? I do not want to pay the earth for callout charges etc; if spares are not available. If they are where can I get them, and will they be very costly. I

I have a Whirlpool Gu180 ESJQ with a blinking green start light. If I clear this light (hold the start button for 5 second to place it in the end of cycle) then I can get it to start another wash cycle. However, the next wash cycle ends with a blinking start button again and the dishes aren't dry. I had an appliance service man come to check it out and he could not detect any problem! Now I have a leak!
