Whirlpool Dishwasher Leaking

Reference Model: WDT780SAEM1

This dishwasher was leaking out the bottom of the front onto the floor. Removed the kick panel and found water dripping from the fill valve area.

agitator basket

3 main possible trouble makers.

  1. If the leak is from the fill valve plastic body or from where the fill valve solenoid attaches to the fill valve = new fill valve time.
  2. It is possible that the fill valve fitting has worked itself loose over time and just needs to be tightened. You would have to carefully tighten the fitting with pliers and recheck this the next day for any more signs of leaking.
  3. If the fitting keeps leaking, it will likely need to be replaced = new fitting time.
