By the kick plate I assume you mean the panel with the 4 screws behind the face panel that snaps in place. This is below the door. The upper two screws are hard to get to, but I can get them out. There is no water on the floor or anywhere around the unit. I will wait for your reply and then if necessary remove the 4 screws and take off the steel panel. Is there a way to reset the the flood trip?
Yes there was water there, I dried it out with towels and then put a fan on it for a few hours to make it completely dry. The unit started up, filled the tank, then shut down because there is apparently a leak. So I guess I have to get into the bottom somehow. That means taking the machine out of the cabinet I assume. What is the most common place to look for the leaks. Obviously I can't run it with opened up. Hopefully I will see something loose or broken. Is there typically something that comes loose or leaks? Thanks.
But in order to do this I will need to remove the unit from the cabinet and get to the motor from the bottom? So I will need to set the unit on its back side?
Yes I gave you an excellent rating and I paid the $50 fee and it was deducted from my checking account via pay pal on August 12th.
