Having problems with your Kenmore 16602 / 16604 / 16609 Built-in Dishwasher ?

While not in operation dishwasher slowly fills up.

\015 Kenmore Elite Dishwasher: Model 665.16952. While not in operation it slowly fills up. It appears to be a leak. Water comes in through a port on the left side of the dishwasher -- approximatly 6 inches from the bottom and 7 inches from the back. The water comes in at a very slow trickle, but enough to fill the bottom between uses. This just began to occur in the past week. To get rid of the water we have been pressing the cancel/drain button. We have run the dishwasher daily and the problem appears to be consistent -- occuring after each time we run the washer. The washer is 4+ years old and we have never had any other issues with it.\015

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

My bosch dishwasher runs fine, cleans fine, drains fine....but after it has been just sitting for a while, the bottom very slowly fills up with water. Each time we run the machine the water level drains back to the normal amount in the bottom of the washer after the cycle is complete. The problem is if we are away for a few days, the bottom fills up and overflows onto the floor.

I have a Dishlex Global 500 dishwasher (DX500lWW*b). Woke up the other night to find water all over my kitchen floor. The hot water hose connector to the hot water tap split (bursted). The dishwater was not in operation at the time but I can only assume when the hose bursted the dishwater came on to alert me? the code on the dishwater is displaying ''oF'' - which means Incorrect fill level of fill time. I have consequently had the hose connector repaired but the display still has the code ''oF''
