What To Do With Dishwasher Leaks and Water Flow Problems

If you’re having trouble with your dishwasher leaking water or not washing your dishes properly, there are a few things you can do to try and solve the problem. Here are a few tips to get your dishwasher back up and running smoothly:

Finding and Fixing Leaks

If you’re noticing water seeping out of the dishwasher after it’s been running, the first thing to do is to check for any leaks. Check the seams around the dishwasher door, the hoses, and the water supply line. If you can find any leaks, tighten the screws or bolts that hold the parts together.

If the water isn’t leaking from the dishwasher, but the dishes still aren’t getting clean, it may be time to clean the dishwasher. 

Remove all of the dishes and put them in a tub or sink. Use a dishwashing detergent and a good water supply to clean the dishwasher. Run the dishwasher with the dishes and all of the cleaning supplies inside.

When Your Dishwasher Won’t Wash

If your dishwasher is still not cleaning the dishes properly, there are a few things you can do to troubleshoot the problem.

  • If your dishwasher isn’t draining properly, check the drain line to make sure it’s not kinked or clogged. If the drain line is clogged, you can use a plunger to try to unclog it. If the drain line is kinked, you may need to replace it.
