Having problems with your Whirlpool Dishwashers ?

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?

We're trying to install our dishwasher and there is a 3rd hose attached on the side. It appears to be a drain of some kind, part number, we think, printed on it is FRU 10967 19/07/04 08:33 Can you tell us what it is and where and how to attach. The one it's replacing only had the water hose and the drain hose, no third hose. Thanks

It will not empty, gets to the pump out part of the cycle and shows the red error code F3, to which there is no reference in the trouble shooting guide.

I own a build-in LG Stainless Dishwasher (modle: LDF1178ST). It stopped draining water during its recent startup due to its idle (no operation) for about a year:). I can only feel the hose full of water by touching the drain hose between the washer and the sink desposal. It's hard to check other part of dish washer since it's built in our cabinet.

My GSD5940Do1ss leaks from what appears to be a tube that is in the middle left of the underside. There are no leaks from the hoses or pumps. It only leaks when it is adding water during the wash or rinse cycle. The part it is leaking from looks like a plastic tube that is part of the tub enclosure. There are four of them and I think they are really the mounting guides for the tub enclosure, which means the water is probably flowing down the tub to this spot. I'm assuming that means my seal arou

Dishwasher Leaking Dishwasher leaks from underneath the right front side of appliance. Can't tell exactly where it's leaking from, because of plastic guard/support on underside. All of the connections and hoses are in good shape. I'm assuming that it has something to do with the draining process, as it will leak 2-3 times during a wash cycle. Sometimes it's very little water and sometimes it's as much as a gallon.
