Hi Jeffrey,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

I am sorry you are having problems with your dishwasher.

These issues are difficult to diagnose without seeing the dishwasher. Most often in this particular dishwasher, a leak above the motor is caused by a bad seal around the impeller. This leak can most likely be stopped by replacing the IMPELLER, DRAIN KIT (part number 675806). However this can also be caused by the SEAL, PUMP OUTLET (part number 302711) or the GASKET, PUMP (part number 717000). The only way to find out is to tear it down and look. Here is a video that will show you how to disassemble the sump and replace the IMPELLER, DRAIN KIT; Video .

Here is a link that you may use to view the parts list diagram and for parts purchases; Sears Parts Direct .

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 .

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Thanks again for using Manage My Life.

A:

Let me explain my question at greater length. The original rack came as rubber-coated metal. This has held up very poorly and has rusted and broken in many places after 3 years of service. I was told by a Sears salesman that some Sears dishwasher racks are now coated with nylon, which is harder and considerably longer-lasting. However, no one can tell me whether the replacement rack has the same coating (rubber) as the original item or has the nylon coating.

A:

We believe that the new replacement rack will be covered in nylon and it may also be different in color too. Generally speaking the reason why the tines start rusting and breaking is when pots and pans are placed in the rack the lip of the pot or pan can slice through the coating which will allow water to migrate in. It will eventually begin to rust and weaken the tine and eventually break. This is a common occurrence that happens over time and use with all dishwasher racks.

A:

Thanks for the answer. I have now ordered to top and bottom replacement racks and I hope they will be an improvement over the originals. Certainly all racks made with non-stainless steel will corrode eventually, but I expect a harder coating will improve the useful life of the racks considerably.

Q:

What is decibel level of Sears Kenmore Dishwasher Model 665.16798791? Approx. 12 yrs old, need to replace but want to know current noise level I have.

A:

That particular model did not have a specific decibel rating. Based on the type of motor that is has and the sound insulation in the unit, the decibel level would likely be around 58 db. You should be able to use this sound level for comparison to new models.
