Hey Everyone! Ok try this one! I have been working on a KUDS25 Kitchenaid Dishwasher. It was leaking like a siv from the bottom. I replaced both top and bottom plastic bearings and also tightend all the screws at the bottom. Leak Gone, I thought. It now has small leaks down both sides. I have since been told by the owner that he took the door apart himself. I pulled out the dishwasher from the cabinet and ran it. I could see the leaks at the top on both sides of the door latch. I cou


Hello davidgalb. You can install a new gasket to seal the door again. That old seal is not flexible any more. That said, for my time and money I recommend a replacement dishwasher, this one has definitely seen better days. Joe ... Dishwashers

Maytag My Maytag dishwasher is leaking from the bottom. It is a mdbh940aww. it was never used before. It was wrapped in the plastic wrap when I bought the house in 2005. Now the old one just went and I want to put this one in. It fit nicely, works great but leaks all over the floor. It is level and I check most of the parts. I put a mirror underneath and it looks like the rubber thing isnt looking too good. Do I replace this? If so how?


I also had a mdbh940aww that leaked from underneath. You need to check out where the water is leaking from. Unscrew and remove the bottom front panel so you can view under the dishwasher. Start up the dishwasher and using a flashlight see where th ... Dishwashers

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?


This sounds like a hinge problem to start with.\015\012\015\012Test the seal by dragging a strip of paper through it with door closed.

My bosh dishwasher SHX55M06UC/46 will not drain. A new disposal was put in and the dishwasher drain plug was not punched out and the dishwasher was ran that way. Now it just holds water in the bottom. I've tried resetting or canceling the wash cycle but that doesn't work and the washing cycle works fine. I'm hoping there is a reset or a safety for the pump if it gets clogged.

The soap dispenser on our Kenmore Elite dishwasher (SEARS part number 8558128) will not stay closed. The little latch mechanism appears to be working, but the spring on the lid's base keeps the lid wide open at all times. I have examined the pop-up dispenser lid to see if some sort of plastic tip held by the latch after soap is added is broken off- this may be the case but I cannot see any damage where such a lip may have broken off. Does the latch catch the lid by snapping onto a plastic lip? I

After working perfectly for years, I came home yesterday and the dishwasher had gone through it's whole cycle (including drying) but the bottom was fully filled with water. I emptied the dishwasher and tried to put it through a "rinse and hold" cycle to see if it would drain, but that didn't work. I pulled out the filter--it's clean as a whistle. Any thoughts?

Melted rubber gasket, black rubber residue inside dishwasher I had a problem with the latch not connecting and therefore could not turn on the dishwasher.

SHX46B I have a 4 year old Dishwasher that filled up with clean water on it's own and leaked on the floor. There appears to ba a float switch switch on the very bottom of the unit that runs the pump if this happens. It won't stop until I remove the water caught in the plastic base on the very bottom of the unit. Drain is clear and this machine has worked fine until now. I'm thinking it may be a bad or leaky fill valve but how can I check?

I have a Bosch SHU8805UC/14 dishwasher. I took the front door panel off to install it better but ended up with two extra pieces that look like either part 935400 Door Guard, or 935526 Support. I cannot seem to find any place on the inside of the door where these pieces would fit. The dishwasher works fine but seems like it got noisier after I put it back together without these two parts.

It seems the pump has stopped working, there is a 2-3 litre amount of water in the bottom of the dishwasher. My wife put a jar in the dishwasher with a label on it. The label was washed off. I am guessing that this clogging the pump. Any ideas on how to fix this ??? (I was thinking a strong cleaner to dissolve the paper)


A small label like that shouldn't be the problem the motor may have just burned out. if it still sprays then is a solenoid that changes the valve to pump out. If it doesn't spray you may have a more serious issue. ... LG 24 in. LD-12BW5 Free-standing Dishwasher
