Leaking Dishwasher Help!

\015 I have a Kitchenaid KUDI01FLSS2 dishwasher. My husband bought it at Lowes on sale two years ago and it has been waiting patiently in our basement to be installed until now. I finally hired someone to install it only to find that it leaks terribly from underneath. Closer inspection shows that the circular "mount" that holds the motor in place is only loosely attached to the unit with three flimsy plastic clips. They cannot possibly provide a seal like this. Is this a known design problem or am I missing some part of the seal/mount assembly? any thoughts/suggestions welcome! Thanks!\015

Hi there,
dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, check these:

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom
of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you.
But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the
entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from
leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher,
remove the:

* Lower rack
*Spray arm
* Spray arm support
* Wash/drain impellers

Then try the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly.
You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the
rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten
or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues
to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the
dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the
leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

Water not going into dishwasher. We turned off the water temporarily because we first had a leak. Fixed the leak and tried the dishwasher. It would not drain, the garbage disposer was clogged. We put in a new garbage disposer, hooked up the water again to the dishwasher and now the water will not go into dishwasher. Help!

I have an LG LDF6810ST dishwasher that has a leak on the bottom right hand side of the door. It appears to be leaking from inside the door itself. The dishwasher is 2 years old. I checked the inlet water to make sure connections were not leaking and they were not. I live in a rural part of Alaska so after talking with the LG help desk I'm pretty much on my own. Any ideas?

My dishwasher is not cleaning dishes... The cycles work but the dishes do not get clean an sometimes are more dirty if that is possible. I have tried adding jet dry and extra cleaning liquid but get no results. Also there are times that the bottom of the washer fills with water unexpectedly and will even leak on to the floor. It doesn't leak when the dishwasher is running... I just don't know what to do other than clean out the spray arms. Please help.
