Dealing with water leaking from the bottom of a dishwasher

Today we're out on an ElectroLux dishwasher with an Error O1 code and also the machine has not drained any of the water. So I'm going to show you how to diagnose the issue. To do the repair, you'll going to need a number 2 Philips screw driver or you could also have a bit that also goes to a drill, 3/8th nut driver, T-15 torx bit, T-20 torx bit, an extension, flat head screw driver and a pair of pliers.

Okay now to remove the dishwasher, you want to remove these two number 2 Philip screws from the top mounting brackets here. After you removed the two screws from the upper now you want remove the lower panel and then gain access to the lower leveling legs.

You're going to want to push them up all the way so that we can put appliance glides underneath to slide the unit out. Okay now we'll going to remove the cover here for the power, it’s a www.LasVegasApplianceMasters.com/ T-15 screw, make sure you shut the power off and expose your wires, and check for power. Remove your wire knots. Once you removed all of that, slide all your wires out.

Once you removed the wire knots here, there's going to be a little knot that holds the wire harness, you'll going to removed that, slide it out and push the wires through. Set it on its back.

Alright now we set the unit on its back just to gain easier access to lower part, this is where we have to do work. First you going to start by removing this number 2 Philip screws. I remove this panel to gain access to the wash motor.

Now you've removed the excess panel, you'll going to find this little sensor here. This is what trips the flood so you going to want to dry that off after you install this pump and motor because that way when you put it together the error code wont show that its flooded. If anything else is wet may we dry it out a little bit and let it air dry.

You’re going to remove this three torx bit screws here to access the motor. Okay once you removed the 3 screws, you'll want to remove this flat head screw here, loosen that clamp. Push that one back. Okay now you remove your ground wire here.

Pull these wires out of the connectors here. Disconnect that, pop your sensor out. Loosen two tabs, now slide out and I'll remove the pump from the base.

Okay remove the 4 T-15 screws located on the base here. Move the wires off the capacitor and then you remove the wash motor.

Well here's your old capacitor, you going to want to remove this because the new pump's going to come with it already attached and wired up so you want to replace it as a kit, so if you move this it’s on a 3/16 nut. Remove that and then put your new one once you assemble the motor.

Okay, you want to remove this two T-20 torx bits out here to remove the shield because you need the plug for the mounting, move that on. Pull that out and remove your mounting tabs here, these little rubber garments out of the base to put in the new motor and also remove this hose here because that’s going to have to fit on the new one.

Now notice the outlet here and here, you want to mount this on the new one the same way it came off. Get your mount here, hose back on here, notice that I put them back on the same place I pulled it off. Take your clamp down, you want to take the shield and mount that back on there. You want to install your shield back on with these 2 T-20 torx bits, tighten down and put your harness plug back in there.

Notice it’s a key in here so you can’t put it in the wrong way, make sure its locked in tight. Re-install your little mounting graplets here on the base of the motor. If you'll notice these two here are a little closer together than these two so on the base you'll going to notice that it’s the same thing. It's how you want to mount it back to it.

Put the motor on the base here, slide those little graplets in, lock them down and take your, make sure your washer are on all of your torx bits here, these are T-15. Now with those tight, you refasten the capacitor here on the mounting panel, its a 3/16 hexed, put your 3/16 in socket, fasten that down. Now you successfully put it on the mounting bracket.

Okay now you’re going to reconnect the motor here. Take your sensor here; pop that's back in there. Once it stuck in there, run your clip, wires to the clips here. Let me take the power wire for the pump, do the same thing. Make sure all your rubber garments here mounted in there.

Connect your ground wire; push the boot back upon the heater and it will slide right in on these 3 tabs with your garments. Connect your hose back to the motor; put your hose clamp back over that.

Tighten that down with flat head screw driver. Put your clamp back up on the heater and I'll go and slide these little bushings back on those little pins.

Take your 3 T-15 torx bits and fasten the motor back down. Now the motor's in, you can put this cover back on there, just three number 2 Philip screws back in the bottom, you want to run you water line back through the little slot over here, so I hooked it up as it push it in, slide it back in, make sure your wires are poking through.

Okay now that you’ve ran your wires back through this back here, you going to install this nut back on there to fasten it down. Now you'll going to hook the power wires up, white goes to white. Check your connection, make sure it’s not loose, black go to black, you want to check your connection, green will go to your brown here, check your wire, put everything in the box here.

Put the safety cover back over it, take you T-20 torx bit and then tighten the covers, now you’ve successfully put the power back together.

Now you've installed the dish washer, you want to re level the unit back around, so screw this legs back out in each corner. Now you run water line back to the inlet valve here and just tighten the fitting down then just tighten your fitting down and tighten your nut down there until it’s completely tight.

Now you’re going to reinstall the two mounting screws number 2 Philip screws at the top here. Now you’ve reconnected the water and reconnected the power to the unit, now you want to run and test cycle and make sure you’ve successfully completed the repair. So you want to hit start, shut the door, the unit should begin to fill and run. If there is no leak, the machine should continue without an error on.
