In the case of the Bosch SHEM3AY55N/28 Dishwasher leaking from underneath, our technician’s investigation revealed two main culprits: a worn-out water pump seal and loose hose clamps. These components are critical in maintaining the integrity of the dishwasher’s water circulation system.
- Diagnosis and Identification: Upon arrival, our technician ran a diagnostic cycle to observe the leak’s origin. The water leakage was noticeable during the pumping phases, indicating an issue with the water pump assembly. Further inspection confirmed that the water pump seal had degraded, a common occurrence in dishwashers after several years of use. Additionally, the hose clamps connecting the pump to the dishwasher’s internal plumbing had loosened, likely due to vibrations during the wash cycle.
- Repair Process: The technician proceeded with the dishwasher repair by first disconnecting the dishwasher from the power and water supplies for safety. The lower panel of the dishwasher was removed to access the water pump. The faulty seal was carefully extracted and replaced with a new, manufacturer-approved seal. The technician also inspected and tightened all hose clamps associated with the water pump to prevent future leaks.
- Testing and Finalization: After the replacement and tightening, the technician reconnected the dishwasher and ran multiple test cycles to ensure no water leaking from the bottom. The dishwasher operated seamlessly, with no signs of leakage. The area was cleaned up, and the homeowner was briefed on the repair and advised to avoid overloading the dishwasher to prevent undue stress on the mechanical components.
