How to Repair a Leaking Dishwasher

Updated: Dec 7, 2023


Are you dealing with a leaking dishwasher?

While it can be an annoying problem, it’s important to deal with it promptly. Not only can a leaking dishwasher cause water damage and raise your water bill, but it can also lead to further damage if not fixed.

Fortunately, there are a few steps you can take to diagnose a leaking dishwasher.

First, check the door gasket. This seals the dishwasher door and prevents leaks. If the gasket is torn, cracked, or missing, you need to replace it. Next, check the spray arm. If it’s loose or there are any cracks or breaks, you’ll need to replace the spray arm. Additionally, check the hose connections. If they’re loose or worn-out, you’ll need to replace the hoses.

Then, check the pump and motor. If there’s any damage or leaks, you’ll need to replace the pump and motor. Lastly, check the bottom of the dishwasher for any signs of water damage or leaks.

If there is water damage, the dishwasher may be leaking from the bottom. And, double check to make sure you are using dishwasher detergent and not dishwashing liquid, as the dishwashing liquid can cause the dishwasher to suds up and cause the bubbles to leak through the gasket.

If you’re unable to diagnose the issue or aren’t comfortable making repairs, it’s a good idea to hire a professional technician to diagnose and repair the leak.

By creating an account on you can quickly and effectively fix a leaking dishwasher and avoid further water damage and high water bills by speaking face-to-face with an expert repairman on a video call for only $25.
