In response to Re: Strange Leak--HELP!
Have you actually pulled out the dishwasher and looked beneath it? Both the hose to the dishwasher and a crack in the dishwasher water valve are suspicious points of failure.

: I just found a very strange leak in the drop celing of my basement. Water appears to be leaking directly from the CENTER of a 2x6 joist (2 inch side facing the floor). It drips down and runs along the 2" side about 4 inches, then drops. Drops are about 6-10 seconds apart.

: The closest items to the spot (on the floor above) are my dishwasher and kitchen sink, but I can't see any water up there.

: I've also looked at the length of the celing/bottom of the subfloor and don't see water anywhere else.

: Never seen anything like this...any ideas? If so, please email me at

: Thanks!!!
