Question and Answers

Q:

Could a broken bottom short seal cause water to be left in bottom of dishwasher?

A:

Hi Rachel,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

It is unlikely that either of the seals has anything to do with water left in the tub at the end of cycles. The drain system consists of the following components:

  1. Auxiliary drain pump (includes motor and one way check valve).
  2. Drain tube.
  3. Check valve (in line with drain tube).
  4. Drain hose.
The inlet cover prevents large particles from entering the sump. Water entering the drain pump is not filtered by the fine filter (metal) or by the sump filter (plastic). The drain pump is mounted on the sump and contains a one-way check valve.

You will need to check the drain system (from the tub to the house drain) for obstructions. Make sure the drain pump is working efficiently, if the impeller is damaged it will not pump as designed.

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. Check the things I have covered here, and if I may be of further assistance, include more details in a reply to this post.

Chris, From what you have described, it is likely that the control board is the culprit. Make sure the user interface board is securely plugged into the control. If this is good, you will most likely need to replace the control part number WD21X10247. If I may be of further assistance please reply to this post. Landell

Hi Chris, Glad to hear you are up and running. Thank you for the information. The Installation Guide for this dishwasher states, "Air gap must be used, if waste tee or disposer connection is less than 18" above floor to prevent siphoning". I am including a link to the Installation Guide below. It is difficult to help with the diagnosis of issues such as this when I cannot physically be there to see the particulars of the situation. If I may be of further assistance please reply to this post. Landell
