Water damages are more common than you think. In fact, there are about 14,000 water damage incidents somewhere in the U.S. every day. If you notice water pooling around or underneath your dishwasher, the leak might come from the front of the dishwasher or from a component from the bottom. We have put together a guide on what causes a dishwasher to leak to help you identify the problem before you get any further water damage. Before you begin investigating, always unplug the dishwasher and turn off the main power source and the water source. If there is a lot of water around the dishwasher, lay down towels to soak up the water. This will prevent you from slipping. A good starting point in your examination can be to consult the manufacturer’s manual. Most big companies have extensive guides and resources on their website on how to troubleshoot their product.
