Dishwasher leaked under vinyl floor
I discovered my dishwasher has probably been leaking for a very long time. It never leaked on top of the vinyl - it leaked under the vinyl. I discovered while scrubbing the floor on my hands and knees, the vinyl felt loose in front of the dishwasher. I took hold of the edge & it peeled back about 2 feet, and the thin plywood is soaked and rotting.
I will call a dishwasher repairman Monday. What about the floor? Will I have to cut away the subfloor (and hope the floor joist is OK)? Will I have to replace the sheet vinyl? I'm guessing YES to that question because I'm sure the wet has damaged the vinyl, and it's 15 years old anyway.
Has anyone had a similar experience where the water went under the vinyl? I think this is weird, and to say the least I'm upset at thinking how many $1000s this will cost to get fixed right.
