What To Do If Your Dishwasher Is Flooding Or Leaking

If a malfunctioning dishwasher flooded your house, the first thing you should do is call a trusted water damage repair company.

Yes, most homeowners can handle a small leak. However, if you’re dealing with a flooded kitchen or a persistent dishwasher leak, there is very likely much more water trapped under cabinets, flooring, and in the wall cavities of your home.

These areas are difficult to access, and, if left untreated, could lead to serious water damage or mold growth.

While you’re waiting for the professionals to arrive, follow these steps to protect your home and minimize the damage.

Step 1: Avoid Electrical Shock

Go to the breaker box and shut off the specific breaker that powers the dishwasher.

If the flood reached outlets, go ahead and shut off the electricity for the entire area. 

Step 2: Shut off the Water

To stop your dishwasher from flooding or leaking, you’ll need to turn off its water supply.

You can locate the dishwasher water supply pipe underneath the sink. There are various pipes underneath the sink, but this specific pipe will branch off towards the dishwasher. 

A shut-off valve is located on the pipe. These valves can be in the form of a lever, a spigot, or a knob.  

Turn the valve clockwise to shut it off. If you’re having difficulty, you can use a wrench.

Step 3: Document the Damages

It sounds illogical, but you actually want to gather evidence of the water damage before you start cleaning up the mess.

Take photos or videos of the flood or leak, the affected areas, and any water-damaged property, like flooring or furniture.

This evidence will help when you file your insurance claim later down the line.

Step 4: Clean Up the Water

Grab towels, a bucket, and a mop, and begin cleaning up as much water as you can. Check underneath and inside kitchen cabinets for any water that might be present.

Step 5: Move Valuables

Move valuables, rugs, or furniture to a dry area of the home to prevent them from getting soaked.

Do not leave anything on the floor that could bleed, like magazines or newspapers.

If the water spread beyond the kitchen and you can’t move heavy furniture pieces, you can wrap their feet it saran wrap, aluminum foil, or plastic bags to protect them. 

Step 6: Start Drying

Set up box fans at full blast around the room and point them towards the floor or any affected areas, like inside the cabinets. Again, only do so if there aren’t any risks of electrical hazards.

If the dishwasher leaked on wood floors, you don’t want to dry them too aggressively, as this can cause more damage.

You can also open kitchen cabinets, windows, and doors to allow for more air circulation. However, you’ll want to keep the windows closed if it rained recently or if the outside air is humid.

The Average Cost of Dishwasher 
Water Damage Cleanup & Repair

Every water damage scenario is different, so, unfortunately, there is no standard cost for dishwasher water damage cleanup or repairs. 

First, you must address the source of the water that’s causing the issue. The national average for dishwasher repairs is $159.

The cost for simple water leak cleanup and drying services is around $3,000. 

Again, the above prices are a rough estimate. The costs can be lower or higher depending on several factors.

To help you understand the costs, we’ve put together a list of factors that water damage repair companies use to determine the final bill.

Cost Factor #1: Type of Water 

Restoration companies categorize water based on how hazardous it is. In this instance, you’re likely dealing with clean water or grey water.

  • Clean water: This water poses no threat of contamination, and usually comes from leaking pipes, faucets, or toilet tanks. The cleanup cost for this is $3.75 per square foot.  
  • Grey water: This water contains some degree of contaminants. Overflowing dishwashers containing chemical detergents fall into this category. The cleanup costs is $4.50 per square foot.
  • Black water: This water is highly contaminated and usually contains raw sewage. Cleanup costs are around $7 per square foot.

Cost Factor #2: Volume & Square Footage of Water

The volume of water and how far it spread is another cost factor. For example, extracting water from a small kitchen area is cheaper than providing flood cleanup after a dishwasher overflow caused standing water in several rooms. 

Cost Factor #3: The Extent of Damage

The extent of the water damage is another obvious cost factor. Cutting out and repairing a small patch of drywall is much less expensive than reconstructing an entire kitchen.

Cost Factor #4: Type of Repair Materials Involved  

The type of repair materials will also affect the price. For instance, if you need to repair high-end items, like kitchen cabinets or wood floors, it’s going to cost a lot more than repairing basic structural materials, like drywall or tile.
