Answers :

Check your overflow float. it looks like a small cone or hat. it should move up and down freely. if it is stuck down, the machine will fill up too far. the gasket is designed to stop splashing water, not be underwater. good luck

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

My Maytag model mdb9600aws motor shaft seal is leaking. How do I remove the seal and replace a new one. I am a novist, but I have taken the motor completely out and replaced the seal / gasket that the motor sits in, but there still is a leak. I am afraid the leak is going to destroy the motor as it has corrosion / salt like stuff about the motor. I have attempted to pry the shaft off with the use of 2 screw drivers. I was thinking since I am going to replace the whole motor shaft seal and chop

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. Probably that left hinge isn't holding door close enough which was probably the original cause. As se ... KitchenAid Architect? II S SERIES KUDS03FT Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

The wash pump is leaking, not at the larger joining o-ring seal, but through the vents in the bottom of the motor just past the blade/rotor. Is there a small o-ring inside that is on the shaft that may be leaking? Is there a schematic breakdown of this motor somewhere? I already ordered a new one, and will "play" with the old one to see if I can fix it, just looking for some direction.


The shaft seal has failed. Often the top ball bearing becomes noisy after having the water leak through it. The seal is probably a lip seal rather than an O ring. ... Frigidaire 24 in. PLD3465REC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

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

KUDS30 leaking my kitchenaid dishwasher (about 1 1/2 years old) had a leak bottom left side and had gasket replaced. It worked well for approx another 6-9 months without any leaks and now the same problem is back. The dishwasher isn't overloaded. A repair person came last week and ran the dishwasher empty and it didn't leak when she was here. The 2 loads after continue to leak approx 2 cups of water each cycle.

My dishwasher is leaking from underneath, front left as you look at it. If i go underneath it, there appears to be a seal on the outside (it does not appear to be the one that runs along the bottom of the inside of the dishwasher) that has come away at one point. Do you know a) how to get the front panel off (the bit that makes it look built in),b) how can i get another one of these seals. I assume if i get one we can just fit it into place. Many thanks, Robyn J

I have an Ariston LS245 dishwasher, have just had the pump replaced, as it had shorted out, due to water in the bottom tray where the water detection float is, also a new drain hose fitted. Have just run a wash and after running a while, presumably to the end of the rinse, wash and dry cycle, then one of the cycle phase lights, the one for 'soak' blinks constantly. I switched the machine off and had a look to see if a wash had been done, the dishes look clean. In the book it says that if one

Recently replaced the control board for Electrolux EIDW6105GW1; after nearly a month of working w/o any problems this evening the machine made it through the wash cycle and then stopped working (all lights on wash cycle door menu are flashing). Took kick plate off bottom to check control board and the leak dectector is lit. I can see no leaks in front and am reluctant to do anything else with this POS.

Model 587784100 My 18inch Kenmore apartment-sized portable dishwasher leaks when running and needs a new main rubber gasket (where the door seals the washer), and a new collar of some sort of white hard plastic collar at the very bottom of the spinning washer arm (which I believe helps make it spin more freely and not "chatter"?) My question is: Is it possible foe a handy person to replace these parts (looks fairly easy), or should I get a proper Kenmore/Sears repairman to fix it?


If you think you can do it then do it. it is normally not any harder than it looks. now because i work there i would say call them :) but you can change those parts fairly easily ... Kenmore Dishwashers

I have the two drawer model dish-drawer system. In the past the top seal leaked and since has been replaced with a new seal. Worked well for several years after but then the top drawer quit running. So we started to use the bottom drawer. That was fine for awhile althought it would pump waste water into the top drawer. Now neither drawer will work. The bottom drawer starts up and shuts down. I pulled the lower drawer and it is dry.


If your model has got an LCD display are you able to record what shows up on the display when the bottom drawer shuts down. If no display then are you able to note down the LEDs which are on inside the top of the drawer lid. It is likely there is no ... Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher

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
