Default Kenmore Dishwasher Leak, through front door
Model Number: 665-1677192   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Kenmore, possibly built by Whirlpool is leaking through the front door. Will be changing the door gasket but I suspect that is not the cause. What else should I be looking for? Leaks without or without dishes in it. How hard is it to pull the front cover off?

Hi Mike,

The first thing I would check is suds inside the dishwasher while it's being leaking.

If it's leaking mostly on the right side then it could be leaking through the detergent dispenser latch. Open the door and remove all screws around the inner door panel. Remove this panel and check from inside of the panel for any signs of a leak.

Post the results.

Gene.

I just had the same problem with my Kenmore. It turns out that top plate of the pump had come loose. The plate has about ten screws to seal the pump gasket. The front two screws were loose enough to let the pump cover rise when pressure was running to the spinner arm. This allowed the water to shoot out of the front of the pump and cause a wave that spilled over the tub lip.

When the water was off, the cover plate looked normal. The gap underneath was only about 3/16th of an inch. I tightened the screws all around and the problem stopped.

Hope that helps if you're still having the problem.

Steve

Had the same thing here with my Kenmore Elite - screws were only about 1/4 turn loose. Tightened them up and no leak. Thanks guys!

Default Water leaks on Kenmore dishwasher

Kenmore,model 665.16369301 is leaking through the front door. It is running water from a port inside on the left side after wash cycle is complete. It leaks through the door and onto the floor sitting idle.

Hi Ray,

Sounds like the problem is a bad water inlet valve.
