If you see water on the floor near your dishwasher, the problem may be related to the dishwasher detergent, plumbing, water inlet valve, or drive motor pump. To fix the problem, follow the steps below to identify and fix the problem.

  1. 1Repair your dishwasher free: Find if you have warranty for your dishwasher. If you bought your dishwasher within one year, it is most likely that you have warranty. Most appliance manufacturers provide one year free warranty. If you have warranty, call the company and get your dishwasher fixed. If you do not have warranty and do not want to spend too much money, you will have to spend some time to identify and possibly fix the problem. The steps below will guide you through the process of identifying and fixing the problem.
  2. 2Dishwasher detergent: Some detergents may form suds during the operation of dishwasher. Excessive formation of suds may lead to leakage of water. If you store detergent for a long time, the detergent may loose its usual washing characteristics. Buy a brand new box of powdered dishwasher detergent. Use a smaller amount of detergent than the amount you usually use. Use the dishwasher and notice if it still leaks water. If the problem seems to persist, read the next steps.
  3. 3Door gaskets: Check if the door gaskets have hardened and lost their flexibility. A good door gasket will seal the door properly leaving no gap to seep through. If the gasket appears to be defective, replace the door gasket. Call a qualified repair person if you need help.
  4. 4 Plumbing:
    Remove the dishwasher kick panel and check if you see any leak from the plumbing connections and hoses. If there is any sign of leak or hairline cracks in the hoses, replace them with new hoses. If you need help, call a qualified plumber.
  5. 5 Water inlet valve: Check if the water inlet valve stays open after the water fill is completed. Also, check if there is any leak or crack in the water inlet hose. Replace the faulty part. Call a qualified technician if you need help.
