Question and Answers

Q:

why does my dishwasher leak out the bottom of the door?

A:

I can understand how important it is to have all your appliances working. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I have found a link that will provide some information and troubleshooting for your problem. I would suggest that you check the door seal, and look for any damage, or tears. This will cause water to come out. I hope this will help you.

Hi Michael,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

I am sorry you are having problems with your dishwasher.

Leaks can sometimes be hard to diagnose when I am unable to see the dishwasher.

Here are some tips that may help you with this problem:

Leaking out of the front door is normally caused by a wave action being created inside the dishwasher tub. The water will "slosh" over the front lip of the tub and leak out. The leading cause of this type of problem in your model of dishwasher is a loose pump outlet cover (see image below). I recommend that you remove the spray arm and check the cover. Tighten the screws on the top of this pump outlet cover if they are loose.

Check the spray arms for cracks or splits. This can also cause a wave action in the tub.

Make sure that the spray arms are rotating properly. Use care when loading the dishwasher. Avoid blocking spray arm rotation.

Make sure that the dishwasher is leveled properly. These tips may help. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

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 .

Thanks again for using Manage My Life.

Landell- hi- my name is Kevin. I have a Kenmore dishwasher Model 66517534201. It also is leaking from underneath by the front door. It will not leak while filling, but right when a cycle starts it will splash out underneath of the door. My kitchen floor has already been ruined, i am ready to buy another machine unless you have some suggestions that may help to correct the problem. please advise if you can help. thank You.

Hi Kevin, Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life. I know how frustrating it can be when appliances do not function properly. Check the spray arms for cracks or splits. Check the supply tube in the back, it has openings that supply the upper spray arm, make sure the one not used is sealed. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Below is a link for the website. I hope this is helpful. Check the things I have covered here, and if I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post. Thanks again for using Manage My Life. Landell

landell, I checked the spray arms for cracks & splits, I did not find any. They look to be in good shape. Also the tube in the rear supplying the upper spray arm, the flapper on the hole not in use is in good shape & closed. The supply plastic piping appears to be in good shape also. Any other suggestions?

You can try tightening the screws on top of the sump assembly. Check the holes in the spray arms and make sure they are not plugged. Try leveling your dishwasher back just a little. Also, check the door seal. Dishwasher leaks are hard to diagnose without being able to see the unit. I highly recommend having a trained service technician evaluate this problem. You can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Below is a link for the website. Landell

Q:

Why won't my Kenmore dishwasher drain completely since we installed a new Insinkerator disposal?

A:

When you installed the new disposal, you should have removed the knock-out plug for the dishwasher connection on the disposal. If this knock-out plug was not properly removed, it could be causing this problem.

Make sure that your drain line on the dishwasher is not clogged.

Check the installation of your drain line to make sure that it still has the anti-siphon drain loop that is at least 20" high. I provided the installation guidelines for your dishwasher drain system in the image below. Make sure that the dishwasher drain line still complies with these guidelines.

A failed drain pump or another component failure in the dishwasher could prevent the unit from draining properly.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.
