    Dishwasher was leaking
    I followed the steps shown in the video "Replacing the Drain Valve Shaft Seal". It showed exactly what to do. The dishwasher was enough old that having a repairman come out didn't seem worth it. Watching the video showed exactly what to do and made me confident that I could do the repair myself. It worked and now my dishwasher doesn't leak.

    Dishwasher Drained Water Immediately (and was leaking)
    Bottom Line: Follow the video instructions and it's easy. I'll start by describing how I got to the point of repairing my dishwasher in case someone else has a similar problem. The first indication that I had a problem with my dishwasher was when it didn't clear out all the dishwasher detergent. Upon further inspection, it appeared that the water drained from the dishwasher immediately after it filled up. By doing some research - particularly on this site, I came to the conclusion there was something wrong with the solenoid that closed the drain shut-off. Further analysis revealed a lot of water damage to the wood underneath the dishwasher. Apparently the original problem was that there was a leak, but never enough to run out from under the dishwasher - just enough to damage the floor immediately under the dishwasher, so the initial problem went unnoticed for quite a while. Ultimately, what had happened was the Drain Valve Shaft Seal had been failing/leaking for a very long time. It was not only leaking, but the leak caused the Drain Solenoid (which is situated right below the drain valve shaft) to rust and eventually fail. If it wasn't for this website, I don't think I would have figured all of this out and I would have replaced the dishwasher...and according to my wife, the refrigerator and stove too so they would all still match! I followed the repair videos on this site. They were extremely helpful and made the repair go as smoothly as if I had done this repair a number of times. Definitely go with their recommendation to replace the Push On Nut - I had to cut mine off. One thing to add is that I didn't even pull the dishwasher out of it's normal position to fix it even though in the video they showed the repairman working on the dishwasher on it's side. It was a little cramped, but definitely easy to accomplish while still in place. I will absolutely visit this site again if I have a problem with one of my appliances! Thank you very much for the service you all provide!
