Is Dishwasher Leaks Covered By Insurance
Generally, if a hose has burst behind or under the dishwasher, almost all damages resulting from this will be covered. Supply lines to a dishwasher can pump out hundreds of gallons of water each hour; it is amazing.
Slow leaks may be denied. This depends on the circumstances and your policy. In many cases, a small leak under “the tub” may go unnoticed for months or years. The resulting damage often includes damaged cabinets, mildew or mold damage, etc.
What To Do After Dishwasher Leak
Proactively take the kick plate off of the bottom of the washer and look for drips each spring and fall. A slow leak can begin from hoses, pumps, mounts, etc.
