Having problems with your Whirlpool Dishwashers ?

My washer is leaking water on the left from the top of a black 3/8 rubber hose. There is no clamp at the top--should there be one?


Answers :

Sounds like you're talking about the fill hose. If so, it connects to an open fitting on the left side of the tub. It should have very little pressure on it and only when the machine is filling. A clamp there is not usually necessary. You can put a clamp on it if you want, but if it's leaking there you probably have another issue. make sure that the inlet thru the side of the tub is clear and free of build-up or debris. Make sure the fill valve is mounted in it's proper position and the hose has no tight bends/kinks in it. If it leaks when the machine is "washing", not filling then you may have an issue with a bent/warped bottom wash arm or the tub inlet may be cracked or separated from the tub (unusual) but would need more detail to say for sure.

Water is leaking from the top of the top drawer, mainly on the right side of the top drawer. Is there an adjustment to raise the tub so that it would have an even seal to prevent the water from leaking. I noticed that the top drawer has a bigger gap on the right side or has more give-in/movemenet when the tub is lifted compare to the left side. This casue the flooding error at the end of the washing cycle.

We have a Fisher& Paykel dishwasher with 2 drawers -- one on top of the other. Model DD603. The bottom drawer works fine. But the top drawer is not working properly -- it repeatedly stops in the middle of the cycle and there is water left in the drawer. Previously when this happened, we called a repairman; he removed the top drawer from the machine, said it was "off track", flipped some lever, and put the drawer back. He seemed a little embarrassed by having to charge for a service call for

My DD603 was leaking (both top and bottom) and I went to this web site and the person recommended changing the Lid Actuators which stopped the leaking for about one month. Now each time I run the dishwasher I get about 1-2 quarts of water on the floor. After reading the number of dissatisfied customers should I just buy a new dishwasher or keep chasing the all the problems associated with the DD-603?


In my honest opinion I would just buy a new one. I would say the same thing to change the lid actuators agian. Iam sure it would stop like before and then return later. It may be more cost effective time wise to just replace the unit. Sorry bbest of ... Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher

Door leak The dishwasher is 2 and half year old and is randomly leaking for at least one year or even more. The leak originally occurred at both lower ends of the door, close to the hinges. The leak was about one liter and the door panel sound insulation soaked with water. After door panel was removed, the leak location was identified at both ends of the lower door gasket. The outside part of the U-shaped gasket was filled with water, and eventually water was spilled on the floor. The leak can g

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
