Question and Answers

Q:

Dishwasher Leaking

A:

I can understand your concern Barb.  It is very likely that the soap dispenser and the leak are unrelated.  The leak is probably due to a failure in the tube gasket.  I have located a link that will discuss your situation in more detail. 
Click here to view the link.  Though this link discusses a different model number,
the mechanics are likely going to be very similar.  Keep in mind that an expert will be
responding within the next two business days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information and
instruction. I hope this information will be helpful and have a nice day.

Thank you for choosing ManageMyLife.com. I understand how frustrating it can be when the dishwasher leaks. This is normally caused by a faulty gasket. If the leak is coming from the bottom corners, the gasket will need to be replaced. If you notice that the leak is from the center bottom of the door, you may have abnormal spray patterns during the cycle. In this case, I would suggest checking for cracks or damage on the spray arms and door on the bottom frame. I have included a link to our PartsDirect page where you can purchase the part you need to complete your repair. Just click the blue link below to be taken to the page.
Gasket for Kenmore Dishwasher Model # 66516332400
I have also included instructions below on how to replace your dishwasher gasket.
SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.

1. Soak the new gasket in hot water to make it easier to seat and seal.

2. Open the dishwasher door and pull out the old gasket.

3. Start on the bottom-right side of the door and gently work the new gasket into the recess.

4. Place the other end of the gasket flush with the bottom-left side of the door recess and push in the gasket, working up the left side and across the top.

5. Check that the door closes tightly, then start a wash cycle to check the gasket for leaks.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services
If you have further questions please let me know. Thanks for using ManageMyLife.com.

When a dishwasher suddenly loses power there are two place to check.

First behind the kick plate access panel is the junction box where the incoming voltage is hooked up to the dishwasher. Turn the power off at the junction box or wall switch.

Check for a loose connection with the wire nuts. Tighten and secure with electrical tape.

Next thing to check is the thermal fuse. It is in the console. It can be checked with a meter if you nave one and are comfortable using it.

If you don't have a meter then use a small piece of insulated wire to bypass the thermal fuse. Be sure the power is turned off first.

The fuse can be bypassed for a short time to see if it is the problem.

Thanks for the question and I hope the answer helps. You can reply with any additional details or question

Q:

Why is my dishwasher leaving soap on the dishes?

A:

Depending on the quality of your water depends on what kind & how much dish soap to use. If you have hard water, you would want to use the maximum amount of liquid dish soap. If you have a water softener or soft water, you would want to use a small amount of powdered dish soap. Following these recommendations should prevent the soap film on the dishes. In order to clean the inside of your dishwasher, you can wipe it down with a sponge using a mixture of powdered dish soap & water to form a paste. Another procedure is; put 2 cups of white vinegar in a glass measuring cup, place the glass container on the bottom rack (upright) & let the dishwasher run through a complete cycle using the air-dry option. Be sure the unit is completely empty. Another procedure is to purchase a product called “dishwasher magic” This is available at most grocery stores or Sears. Other helpful tips; be sure the rinse aid reservoir is full, run the hot water at the sink to purge the line of all cold water before starting the dishwasher.
