Cannot afford a plumbing or to replace the

\015 Cannot afford a plumber/repairman or to replace the dishwasher as my husband has been unemployed for awhile, my Sears ultra wash dishwasher is leaking water from the lower right side of the upper door. Between this and the Sears wall oven giving me a F8 code I don't know what to do.\015

Answers :

Get your husband to do the dishes by hand, it's not like he does not have any spare time! stop using the dishwaher till you can afford to get it fixed.
Try cleaning around the door seal with a cloth, while your at it the door seal should not have any tears in it this allows water to get out!
Hi,

F8 would indicate a water level failure.

Check that the drain hose hasn't dropped down too low and also check that the water isn't siphoning out because the drain hose is too far into the stand pipe.



Check that the filters, especially the fine mesh one, is clean and clear.



If neither of the above, take the filters out, clean out the black grid on the right side of the sump.. Pour a kettle of boiling water into the sump getting as much as possible into the black grid. Select the hottest wash and try the machine again.

Model#lds5811bb--started making noise coming from the water inlet area(bottom left). 3/4's of the way through the cycle, noise became louder and then an error code "le" came on.
