Water at bottom of Whirlpool ADP-8540
« on: November 15, 2013, 01:31:47 AM »
My whirlpool ADP-8540 has started shorting out. I've discovered that water is leaking at the bottom of the dishwasher under the motor. It is leaking from a pipe that terminates at the bottom as you can see in the attached image. It seems a little strange to have a pipe terminate here.

Any ideas how to fix this and what is causing it?

Thanks
Chris

That looks like the drain hose .& if that is the case you should have a flood under there when draining.

That model number doesn't come up for me. And that design doesn't look familiar. Are you located outside the US?

Yes, I'm located in aus. Can find manual at http://www.whirlpool.com.au/content/download/43841/2052869/file/ADP8000__IFU-2010-12-6.pdf if interested.

If that is the drain hose then has it become disconnected? There only seems one place it could attach within reach which is on the left (under the triangular bracket) but it doesn't go anywhere.
