Q:

How do I stop a small leak on my Kenmore model 665 17439001 portable dishwasher?

A:

What makes this problem difficult is the cabinet prevents you from visually identifying the source of the leak.

If the leak doesn't show up until the cycle is finished then it is a slow leak. The image below will help you see where the leak might be coming from.

In the top picture of the complete pump the things that might leak are the hose clamp on the inlet hose (part key 3), pump seal (part key 1), or the seal on the collection chamber.

The bottom picture of the pump breakdown show a leak might occur on the pump seal (part key7) around the motor shaft.

The 2nd image will give you an idea of how the cabinet is mounted.

You could try and remove the cabinet and see if there is any evidence of a leak. From the description you give you might consider waiting till the leak gets worse before taking anything apart.

Any parts can be obtained from the following link: Sears PartsDirect .

I hope this information is helpful to you but submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.

Q:

Why is my Kenmore dishwasher still leaking after I replaced the 5300808042 seal kit?

A:

From the description of the problem I believe the solution will be adding a shim or two.

The sump gasket doesn't usually develop a leak and it's difficult to determine because there is a "slinger" above the motor that if the impeller seal is leaking down the motor shaft the water is slung everywhere. It's not usually a large amount of water but since the slinger slings it everywhere the source can be hard to pin down.

I'd recommend adding a shim or two first. Just place the guide over the shaft and put no downward pressure on it. It may take a couple of tries to get the number of shims correct. Too many and the impeller sits to high and may rub the pump plate. Too few shims and there will not be enough downward pressure on the seals to prevent a leak.

Try one or two shims and before placing the screw through the impeller into the motor shaft push down hard on the impeller and turn it. If it doesn't rub then complete assembly and give it a try. If it rubs on the pump plate then remove one shim and try again.

The pump plate and gasket will have screws go through them so line up the holes in the pump plate and gasket. The screws holding the diffuser in place are the screws that go through the holes into the pump housing.

I hope this information helps to resolve the leak problem.
