Dammit. Fridge is still being dumb.

Implementing Jason's ToolboxTM for this one. I don't have the patience to deal with it. Seems like a bigger hassle to diagnose and fix than messing around with the clothes dryer when that went on strike.

Meanwhile, I've got a fan pointing at the open hatch on the bottom of my dishwasher to make sure it all dries out before I put it back together and reinstall it.

Then I'll hope it was just condensation buildup that caused the small puddle in the bottom. Otherwise I'll be pulling it out again in the future.

Update: Seems like it's fixed, we'll see if same thing happens again soon.

Yep, same thing happened tonight (the first cycle we've run through). Time to live up to the title of this thread (repair visit first, see how much that'll be).

I feel you. Can you check forums and Youtube Technical Institute to see if they have any insight? If you can wait for parts orders, you might be able to save both time and exposure to potentially COVIDy repair folks if you can do the stuff like replacing gaskets and possibly leaky pumps DIY.

Well, I took a look around when I had it out, although I had resisted flipping the dishwasher over (because some people had said that was a mistake that would end up dumping the water throughout the entire rest of the unit). Pulled off the side panel and looked at the hose connections on the drain. Everything seemed tight there, and there really wasn't any evidence of a leak that I could find.

What some of the comments I read were saying was that you can get leakage on the screw holes on the side of the tub, so when it sprays around it gets some water in there. The amount of water that was appearing seemed to be kind of on that order (there was probably what I'd call less than 1/2 cup of water throughout the whole thing). But I just don't have enough knowledge about the whole thing to want to tear it all apart.

Dishwasher is still out of commission while we wait for replacement parts. Getting the two drain hoses replaced, the one from the pump to the water panel, and then the one from the water panel to the sink. One of them had like 3 pinhole leaks in it and was spraying out water, and I decided that while the guy's at it, he should replace both the hoses, since they're the same material and the same age, and I don't need more leaking. But a very repairable issue, just gotta wait for the parts.
