Why Your Dishwasher is Leaking

Is there always a pool of water at the base of your dishwasher? This is a surefire indicator that you have a leak in your dishwasher. Worry not, most leaks can be fixed swiftly at the hands of a professional. Some issues can even be resolved by a simple tightening of a loose pipe, which you might be able to do on your own. Keep reading for all the information you need to know about leaky dishwashers.

Causes of Dishwasher Leaks and Solutions

Let’s get to the bottom of what causes dishwasher leaks in the first place. To figure this out, let’s specify where the leak is coming from.

  • If you have a leaky dishwasher tub, you might have worn a hole in the bottom of the main compartment from general wear and tear. Some detergents can corrode the bottom of the tub and cause a puddle of water to form at the base of your dishwasher. This will likely require the hands of a professional.
  • If you have a leaky dishwasher door, you might have a hole somewhere in the actual door. If this is the case, you’ll probably be able to trace the water back to the origin hole. The door latch could also be the source. Both of these will need to be replaced to be fixed.
  • If you have a foaming leak, you might have used the wrong dishwasher detergent. Regular dish soap is not intended to be used for dishwashers and can cause serious issues and leaks if used.

Most of these issues can be fixed with a quick visit from a professional plumber. The most important thing to keep in mind post-leak is to ensure all areas that become wet are dried out completely to prevent molding and further issues.
