Question and Answers

Q:

How do I stop the dishwasher is leaking from the float stand pipe. Is there a seal in the stand pipe?

A:

Thank you for your question on the dishwasher leaking because of not being able to drain.

Does this dishwasher drain into a garbage disposal? Is the drain for the garbage disposal and sink slow to drain? If it is you may have a waste drain problem. .

If the water gets too hi it will come out of the stand pipe hole for the float stem.

The dishwasher should not have that much water in the base unless you have a problem with a blocked drain hose. The water should not be higher than the heater element in the bottom of the dishwasher.

You can put the dishwasher on cancel drain and watch it drain into the garbage disposal to see if it has a strong flow. If it does not have a strong drain flow then there may be something in the pump that is restricting the drain and taking to long to drain the water out and there is still some in there when it starts to fill for the next cycle.

If you put the dishwasher in cancel drain and it shuts off and you still have water in the bottom of the dishwasher then it is a good possibility that there is some debris in the pump.

To look for debris in the pump please remove power to the dishwasher and begin the process of cleaning the pump.

Remove the lower dish rack and remove the lower wash arm from the top of the pump. Remove the screws from the top of the pump and lift off. Then remove the filter screen and look into the pump for debris in the drain pump area.

You may need to remove the excess water with some towels.

Look down into the drain pump cavity and remove any pieces of items that do not belong there.

Be careful because sometimes glass with break and end up in the pump and it will cut you. So be careful.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Please let me know what you decide to do and we can continue to troubleshoot if needed.
