Default Dishwasher Help.

Hi All,

So recently i noticed our dishwasher was leaking. Last night I sat through a cycle to see where, thinking (and hoping) it was just the seals and I could replace it. Turns out its not.

My digital camera was on the fritz so I don't have a pic but the problem is a plastic tube running into the motor housing from the disposal. The motor housing is slightly rusted around the tube connection and it is dripping from there.

Is this something I can fix, should I make a service call or is the dishwasher toast (it is fairly old).

Hope the description was ok. Any help is appreciated.

Default I opt for toast

The service call will cost you, as we all know. The issue is that there will be a follow up leak on another hose after you fix the decayed one.
I would go for a new dishwasher. They are much quieter, use less energy and water, and do a much better job on the dishes.

The new washers actually use less water than doing the dishes the old fashioned way by hand.

Enjoy shopping.
