Leaks coming from screws holes on both sides of Samsung dishwaster near bottom at the back.  (Model = DW7933LRASR).  Pictures are attached.  The screw heads do not sit flush with the plastic.  There's maybe a 1/16" gap when the screw is all the way in.  Maybe washers are missing?

 

The machine is new, still under warranty, but the two Samsung warranty repair service companies in my area have truly terrible reputations.  Smaller service outfits don't want to work on it because they can't get Samsung parts.

 

We just moved in to this (flipped) house.  I don't know who installed the dishwasher or if they might have messed things up.

 

One other thing, in case it's somehow relevant... The screwing mechanism for raising and lowering the third plastic leg in the back middle appears to have been broken.  Nonetheless, the machine is level via a shim beneath the third leg.

 

I feel like I could plug the leaks, but the real problem may be deeper inside?  Should water even be reaching this junction?  I'm clueless in this realm.

 

Thanks very much for your help!

It is difficult to discern from the photos, but this appears to be at the point the tub is attached to the base? If so, it appears the screws do not penetrate the tub itself -- and the leak is somewhere else on the tub with the water is finding it's way to this low point, as you suspected. The fact the rear leveling leg is broken indicates some prior rough handling. You may be looking at a new tub, a non-serviceable part.


We, the unwilling, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

Are the ends of the fasteners visible on the inside of the tub????....How far up from the bottom of the tub is/are the fasteners????............................................................Have you ever watched those T.V. shows on 'flipping ' houses?????......The wife watches those shows , and I tell her that I would hate to be a 'new' owner of one of these houses................Some band-aids over bad sub structure, ( in some cases but not all ).....
