Practically new dishwasher leaking


Recommended Posts



My 10 month old Bosch is LEAKING..... at least I assume that is the source of water under my sink, as it is not coming from anywhere else.....




So now I get to figure out if it's covered by the one year installation warranty.... or the one year manufacturers warranty. Or neither.

Feel the outside of all the pipes and tubes...what is wet? ...I will assume it is the dishwasher drain tube for now... : )


Check the fitting where the dishwasher drain tube connects into the sink drain. It may be loose. But if you remove it for any reason, have a bowl ready...usually the drain tube holds a bit of water where it loops. Also, check to see if the water is running down the outside of the tube. There might be a small hole in the tube somewhere, which could most likely be fixed with a bit of quick drying, waterproof sealant. Replacing the entire drain tube would be a pain...so check those things first.



If all is well with the drain tube, it could be that the rubber rings between the sink and sink drain need replaced. That is a common cause for leaks. It is an easy fix with two people...you will need a great big wrench and someone with strong arms... : )
