Yes I have wood floors they were all through the house when we bought it.....never again when it comes to wood in the kitchen
We also disconnected the ice maker too many floods.
Now we are on leak number 3 or 4 with the dishwasher...bought a new dishwasher this week but now I want a tray or something like it for under the dishwasher.
I am tired of going into the basement to find water all over the place before I realize the dishwasher has sprung a leak. The leaks run under the wood flooring Oak Boards and create havoke....We dont' have any damage to the eye because we pulled the oak boards as soon as we knew there was water migrating underneath.....
Does anyone have any suggestions....the tray that you can order over the internet...Flood Saver the drain lands right over a floor joist..
OH OF COURSE IT DOES..........
I cant be the only one with this problem
Why not go to a metal shop and see how much it would be to make up what you want.
We had one made (without drain) for under our softener because of condensation. It was quite economical.
Maybe you need a new plumber as well! I used to do repairs for people in SoCA but never saw a dishwasher plumbing leak, nor did I see one rust through. But dishwashers don't last forever and you need to provide for pulling one out for repairs! Terrible luck you are having, and I feel for you.
We have hardwood floors in our 6 year old kitchen; no problems yet.
I am with Bob on this one. New plumber.
We have had dishwashers since the 70's and none of ours (nor anyone I know) has had them spring a leak.
The door seal can eventually go bad after many years, or the inner drain seals...maybe, but we never had any of the plumbing connections leak on any of ours. No water on the floor in other words.
I'm on machine #4 within a 40 year time span. None has ever leaked. Nor has anyone's I know.
I'm with Bob. Sounds like you need a new plumber more than a drain pan.
I did have a friend whose water line to his refrigerator leaked. And I'm sure there have been dishwashers that have leaked, but you have had a very bad string of luck. I've had dishwashers for 25 years in 4 homes and never had a leak.
You'd want an alarm in your pan because otherwise it would just fill up with water with any sized leak and then overflow, unless your pan had a drain in it.
Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.
My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
No leaks here either! I agree, you need a new plumber.
