Hi, welcome to Just answer .... with the dishwasher unplugged pull it out and then remove the base panel of the appliance, now try to clean everything and then lay the dishwasher on its back so that excess water is removed...also closely inspect for any broken gaskets etc

Gabriel, how old is this dishwasher and when it leaks does it also give any error ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hello Kevin The dishwasher is around 5years old it's fully integrated still in good nick yes the error flashes and as far as I remember the code is 13 and it says check inlet or outlet I have checked out let all is clear I also cut down the water pressure just a wee fraction in case the speed flow was to high and the meter wasn't fit to handle flow I don't want to put words in your mouth but is I possible it a faulty speed meter Kevin I'm only talking as a friend don't take the wrong meaning out of my spake you know we Irish have a different way of saying but getting to the point this machine Could go for a few days or some times go for 2or3 weeks this is a baffled to me Kevin I wish you luck maybe we'll get lucky bestregards gaby .

I understand Gaby... the error code indicates problem with inlet not the outlet... you can check the inlet valve .. to do this turn off the water supply and check the hose, also check the filters... if everything is fine then the problem is with the flow meter, if you can test it with a multimeter...also check the inlet valve with the meter
