Having problems with your Kenmore 15129 Built-in Dishwasher ?

Leaking Kenmore Elite at the right front of dishwasher

\015 Hey - I have similar problem. My Kenmore elite dishwasher (mod #665.13124K701) has leaked (since 3 mos. after purchase) right under the "float assembly" which is the front right side of dishwasher. Sears tech's replaced the float assembly, and the manifold (spraying arms) assembly. Only to find.... the dishwasher is leaking AGAIN at the same spot! I've ran machine w/o soap/rinse agent/ and empty..... it leaked. It's level.... hubby checked it.... tech's checked it. Tech's watched machine run cycle and saw for themselves the water dripping out. Machine leaks intermittently w/o a pattern to trace. Sears tech's can't figure it out. Now I'm out of warranty & repair warranty. Sears wants $129 for a service call. Why should I trust Sears when they STILL haven't solved the original problem?\015

Answers :

Sorry to hear of your plight. My advice is to ask for a new machine under the lemon law since they cannot get it fixed. You can also try calling Whirlpool who is the manufacturer but they are likely to tell you to work with Sears. They were out under warranty and it has not remained fixed so the warranty should carry through since you called for service while still in warranty. I feel for the tech because it is frustrating to have a problem that you cannot find a cure for be the tech should also have escalated it to the tech support line for resolution. (I was a Sears tech for 21 years)

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (2004) and recently it has been leaking internally at a very slow pace. When not in use it will slowly fill until the floor of the unit is filled and then leak onto the kitchen floor unless we press the drain button and then it drains completely. The water seems to be coming from the front of the washer, potentially from the door itself. The amount of leakage is barely discernible but will fill over the course of a 24 hour period. The dishwasher otherwise wo

Dishwasher leaking Our dishwasher all of a sudden started leaking. I've taken the front panel off the door and can see exactly where. It's not a hole or anything...it's at the front, left edge of the basin, the bottom left corner at the front. It seems that right after it fills with water, it starts to leak once water is moving around inside and washing cycle starts. It is as if big waves are being pushed to the front left corner and over the lip of the basin. I don't think the water level is to

Dishwasher Leaking Dishwasher leaks from underneath the right front side of appliance. Can't tell exactly where it's leaking from, because of plastic guard/support on underside. All of the connections and hoses are in good shape. I'm assuming that it has something to do with the draining process, as it will leak 2-3 times during a wash cycle. Sometimes it's very little water and sometimes it's as much as a gallon.

I don't have a model number right now, but the front door on my Admiral dishwasher is leaking at the bottom. I have changed the gasket inside the door panel at the bottom but it still leaks. This is a rental property and the renters did a job on this dishwasher. I was wondering if they may have pulled another lower gasket off that I didn't know existed. Something like a windshield wiper. The seal I changed was a foam strip 3 x 22 approx. Thanks for your time, Joan

Kenmore Elite: - Stale smell from dishwasher, won't go away, lingers on dishes, glasses. I tried a vinegar remedy suggested by a diy site - it helps for a cycle or two, but the smell comes right back. Diy site suggested taking apart the dishwasher to see if there is food trapped: there always remains a little water at the end of each cycle - but I'm concerned about taking apart my dishwasher if there is another solution. Smell doesn't smell of food to me. What do you think? Hollie Smith
