Default Kitchenaid dishwasher leaking under door
Model Number: Kuds30fxss8   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: Less than 1 year   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My dishwasher is leaking out the bottom of the door. The tub is filling up and coming out up over the tub onto the floor.

Things I've checked
drain hoses clean, drain pump took out and turned on, motor, rubber door seal no issues, lower door seal which is hard plastic had a small crack but water was coming faster than what this small cracks would allow, float valve and switch, switch did make a reading when hooked to Olms meter and activated.

I also took the front of the door off so I could watch the pan fill up as it was filling up during different sequences the pan got fuller would drain a little, fuller drain a little, then overflow.

I can't figure out how to attach pictures

That part sounds wrong. If its draining the way it should, most of the water should be gone before it starts filling again. That makes me think the pump isn't working right or drain hose/drain is restricted somehow.

It should never overflow because the overflow float/switch should stop it. Once the tub is full and the float is up, that should cut the power to the water fill valve.

If your pics are too big, you won't be able to upload them here. I just use a site like photobucket and then put a link in my post.

Thank you for the reply!
I'm 100% sure the drain hose is not clogged because I ran a snake through it. As for the drain pump I took it off, left it plugged in, then ran the drain/cancel button. It turned on and spun. There is also water coming out of the drain hose into the disposal when turned on. As for the float valve, there is no soap or deposits on it because I took it off and looked. Then for the float switch, I took it off also. It showed there was a break in the current on the Olms meter then it showed it connected when I pressed the button down.
