Is Your Dishwasher Leaking? Here are Some Possible Reasons Why

If you notice water coming from your dishwasher, there are a lot of reasons this might be happening. Regardless of why your dishwasher is leaking, you should never try to fix it on your own. Get in touch with a professional at Appliance Home Service instead.


There could be some sort of clog in the dishwasher drain or filter. This is actually a common problem, one that could be due to food particles or even residue from dishwashing soap. In some cases, labeling from dishes can come off and cause an obstruction. When a clog gets bad enough, there’s only one way the water can go – out the dishwasher door.

Damaged Gasket

The cause of a leak could be something that seems relatively minor, such as a damaged gasket. The gasket is the rubber piece that runs along the dishwasher door or the interior of the unit. If there’s a crack or some other weakness in the gasket, that can allow water to escape from the dishwasher to your kitchen floor.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Appliance Home Service if you see water coming from your dishwasher. Again, though, you should never try to repair a problem on your own. If you do and you make a mistake, you could cause a great deal of damage that will be very costly to fix. Make the safe choice and contact us instead.
