Exalted Gurus of Appliance Knowledge,

I have a GE dishwasher, a Potscrubber 680, been working fine for years.

A few weeks ago, my  wife noticed the carpet (that sits in front of the dishwasher) was wet, and she hung it out to dry.  I inspected the area but didn't find too much evidence of water.  We assumed it was a local spill.

Tonight, my wife noticed more spillage, so she shut it off right at the start of the cycle.  I took the front cover off (that covers the undercarriage) and again, didn't find alot of evidence of prior leakage.  This time when we restarted it, water started pouring out by the cupful.

We stopped the machine, cleaned up the hw floors (and the basement office ceiling below - doh!)

My questions are

I meant to say "You solved one part of the riddle".  Yes, there are foamy bubbles, but we think it's because we put a dishwashing wand (with soap vessel and spongy head) in there.  But my wife says she took the cap off and there was no soap in it.

I cleaned out the drain (nothing in there but some hair, and a sippy cup straw that wasn't really blocking anything), emptied lots of the water out via towels and bucket, and started it up on the rinse cycle.  Still more bubbles, another trip with the towels and bucket, another rinse cycle.  It's running right now without leaking.

So, did you solve the riddle?

Yes, Jedi solved the riddle.

Anytime you get regular dishwashing soap, (even a small amount), into a dishwasher you get tons of suds and flood.
