In Topic: GE Triton dishwasher leaking

The shower tube is basically already off of the top of the dishwasher.  See below:

Why do you suggest taking off the roof spray arm BEFORE replacing the tube?

 

The reason I'm asking is because the two screws holding the roof spray arm are severly corroded. 

 

See below:

I can remove the screws using a grinder and if I do that then I suppose the roof spray arm will be able to be released from within the top of the dishwasher.  I can  then get two replacement screws to reset the roof spray arm.

If I was a guessing man it sounds as if the power shower tube is leaking. It goes from the main motor, along the left side of the tub to the top of the dishwasher where it supplies water to the top wash arm.

It appears to be the power shower tube alright.   It is leaking a hugh amount of water right where it comes in to the top of the machine.  There is an elbow fitting going through the top of the machine, and it has a crack in it.  The water is escaping through that crack and then passing over the top of the machine then downwards on the side to the floor.

 

The elbow appears to be soft rubber.   If purchase this part, will it be simple to just pop it back in through the top of the machine where it came out?  It doesn't appear that there are any special tools required, to replace it, correct?

 

Can you think of anything else I will need to have (or know) to replace the shower tube?

The fill tube or the fill cup is leaking.  You'll need to pull the dishwasher out far enough to get a visual on that full assembly which is on the LHS, toward the back.  The problem may be apparent.  If not, you'll need to run it in that position (may be difficult depending on installation) so you can see from whence the water originateth.  

 

 

Take a 6' stainless steal dw hose and run it in the middle on the floor who that you can get a better visual.

 

Can you please tell me where the fill tube is located on this diagram (which part #)?  Also, do you know of a parts list for this diagram?

 

And YES, that is exactly what I'll be trying to do next (taking a 6' SS hose and connecting it to the dishwasher after I pull it out).

I guarantee you that I'm way better at guessing then you are!

But guesses don't count.

Did you see my reply above?

All leaks are visible, meaning their exact point of origin can be visibly discerned.  

 

In your zoom-in view, can you point out the specific location of the leak source?

 

May require laying on the floor with a Margarita and a flashlight and watching while the dishwasher is running. 

 

I put some cyan-colored lines below so you can see where the drips are coming from.

So, this tube is active during the washing cycle?
