How to Tell If a Dishwasher Is Leaking
Puddles of water on the floor near the door of the dishwasher usually signifies a leak. Dried water stains on the floor or sides of the dishwasher can also indicate a smaller leak. When the leak occurs underneath the dishwasher, you may not see any water at all, but you may notice a smell indicating mold from an old or long-occuring leak.
Select KitchenAid® dishwashers offer a Leak Detection System with multiple sensing points, a water flow monitor and a drip tray to protect against potential sources of leaks. If the system detects a problem, the dishwasher will stop the cycle, drain and alert you that a service is needed.
