Default Kenmore/ Whirlpool Dishwasher model 665-15693K210

I purchased a Kenmore dishwasher model number 665-1593K210 and the front left hand side door leaks. Not aware of the leak, it has caused extensive mold damage to the kitchen. Other people have had a left door leak that I have read from forums. The dishwasher was purchased in Spring 2013. Anyone have any related incidence? How or what part is causing the malfunction?

The problem has been found by a certified factory tech. And parts have been ordered. Not something you think one would consider defective on a new dishwasher.

Default Same problem but more

Hey guys, found this while looking how to fix my dishwasher. I have everything apart and the spring that is part of my impeller kit is broke. I have found the replacement kit but need something answered. The 1/4 inch bolt that connects to the motor through the black plastic part comes out but also the piece it screws into comes out? Is that supposed to be permanently part of the motor and am I out of luck? I also haven't exactly how to put this impeller kit back on once I order it but first questions first, should the part the bolt connect to come out?
Thanks
Jeff

Default same problem with pic

Just incase I did a poor job of explaining, the pic below is what i am talking about. Is the piece on the left part of the motor that has broken off or am I still ok?

Default Did this part cause your unit to leak. How old is your dishwasher and date purchased

Jeff,
Did these parts cause your dishwasher to leak? If so, how long ago was, or rather how old is the unit?

No, my dishwasher did not leak, i just noticed it just never sounded right after the water unit was full. When I thought it was fully filled with water, i quickly opened the door, then closed it but never heard that deep washing sound, that's when i began taking it apart and found the part was broke off that actually makes the spinning arm go round. But to answer your question, it did not leak at all.

Broken motor shaft.... We used to have techs that had a socket that would fit the 6 sided plastic "nut" on the top of the impeller that they had welded a screwdriver handle to and then a nut driver through the ratchet hole and made an easy task of this repair.

Default Don't break the impeller.

I'd suggest against breaking off the impeller.

This bolt does thread in the normal way (righty tighty) so if it's seized instead slightly tighten it first to break it loose (but not too hard so as to crush the rubber gasket under the bolt head), then unscrew it to the left (counter clockwise). Use a 1/4" socket with an extension to a socket wrench. The plastic "nut" on the impeller is 1". Didn't have a 1" box wrench so I used an adjustable. No problem. Pull the impeller up and out of the way.

Next use that same torx screwdriver you used to get to the impeller to remove the four bolts that are now exposed. Gently pull away the assembly. Voila, there's all the junk that's gotten in there. Check the metal mesh on the removed assembly for bits of glass that might be stuck in the mesh to keep them from getting into your motor later.
