All of a sudden, when we run our Haier model EDS300 built in

Customer Question

All of a sudden, when we run our Haier model EDS300 built in dishwasher, some water leaks out of the bottom. It seems to only happen during the rinse cycle. We live in Northern New Jersey. Is there a simple solution that we can try ourselves or is there an authorized Haier service dealer near Wayne, NJ 07470 ?    Thanks

Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. You might check a couple of things first. Some times a dishwasher can become out of level over time, so check with a small level and adjust the legs as necessary. Then look carefully at the spray arms. If either of them has developed a hairline crack it would spray water where it shouldn't and cause a leak. Failing that you may have to call a local appliance repairman. Be sure to ask if he is familiar with this unit.

The spray arms seem to be intact. The machine is level. The seals around the opening seem like they are sealing. The machine does not leak a lot of water but it does come out the bottom, underneath the machine or underneath the door.

On a completely different subject, the dishes do not dry after the full cycle is completed.

They always are full of droplets.

Remove the kick plate and inspect underneath for leaks..
Are the dishes hot after the drying cycle.

I found this in the manual for an ESD300. Did you get the letters wrong? I don't know if it will help but here it is:

• Dishes are not dry
Did you load your dishwasher to allow proper water drainage?
Do not overload. Refer to the "Dishwasher Loading" section. Use a liquid rinse
aid to speed drying.
Are the plastics wet? Plastics often need towel drying.
Is the rinse aid dispenser empty? Refer to the "Rinse Aid Dispenser" section.
Did you use an air-dry or energy-saving dry option? Use a heated drying
option for dryer dishes.
