HEAT ELEMENT CAME IN CONTACT WITH TUB AND BURNED A HOLE THROUGH IT,WHICH CAUSE A SERIOUS LEAK ALL OVER THE ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS


Answers :

I doubt this is worth repairing. Even if you could patch the plastic tub, it is unlikely you could make the patch smooth enough to be sanitary, and the chemicals you would use are probably not safe for food contact. I could be wrong - maybe you are one of those rare individuals skilled in thermoplastic welding and you have the patience to grind down and polish the surface afterwards. In that case, post back about what parts got soaked when you have the tub fixed.

Otherwise, I suggest checking your home-owner's insurance policy to see how much, if any, of the damage is covered.

We lost electricity very briefly today which caused the dishwasher, washing, drying, clean buttons to blink when the electricity came back on. I opened the door to do a load of dishes hours after the electricity came back on and the basin was filled with water which caused water to spill out of the dishwasher. The basin was empty last night when we used it. It seemed to fill up when it was not running.

Dishwasher leak I have a General Electric Potscrubber Mobile Maid dishwasher (model GSC720?) that hasn't been used in some time, but appears to still work OK. It has a leak from the left hand vent opening in the bottom of the door when operating. The seal around the door appears intact and doesn't leak. Can you suggest a probable cause, and remedy? Thanks, Bob.


With dishwasher empty and disconnected, find the screws around the area of the "vent",you may need to open it from the bottom. There will be a hose that has either ruptured or just needs the clamp tightened with a screw driver. I think that the hose ... Dishwashers

Turn water on then actuate wand trigger. Pressure washer leaks when wand trigger is actuated and has very low pressure/flow output. After releasing trigger the pressure cycles on - off at approx 1 second interval. I suspect that the plasstic oulet tube is leaking causing low pressure leak out of bottom when trigger is actuated and causes pressure switch to cycle when the trigger is released. Any Help? This pressure washer is approx 18 months old!


You gave a very close solution yourself for the problem. But other leakages can cause such symtoms.Forexample a leaking head or a leaking chemical inlet. These can be caused because the spill valve (pressure control valve) is stuck. When this valve s ... Karcher PSI Electric Pressure Washer

Leaking FDW60 I have a Hotpoint FDW60 dishwasher. yesterday it tripped our house electrics and then we had water flooding out of the dishwasher. Through a process of elimination I have now discovered that water is leaking from the drainage sump in the centre of the babse down onto the motor or other electrics. I have looked for loose hoses and there are none visible from the base of the dishwasher, can you give some ideas where the water might be coming from?

I have a Karcher K3.48M electric pressure washer which used to shut off when you weren't using the cleaning wand. This no longer happens and there is alot of water running out of the bottom of the unit. (This didn't used ot be the case) I expect a leak somewhere inside the unit, but I'm wondering even more if there is a pressure switch which has failed that cased the leak.

My dishwasher leaks water from the top of my sink when in the drain cycle mode causing a mess on the counter top. How do I stop this leak? The plastic cover to the part which is located next to the faucet is cracked but there appears to be no leaks on the hose or on the part itself. Also, what is the purpose of this part? Is this the actual drain for the dishwasher and if so, why doesn't it tie directly into the drain?

The electric motor just shuts down, if I take my finger off the pressure and let the water run with no presssure the motor runs fine. My question is this.
