Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

Dishwasher leaks during the wash and rinse cycles from the front

\015 I have a Kenmore dishwasher about 13 years old. I have replaced the gasket around the door and this helped some, but I think the water level may be getting too high in the dishwasher sometimes and that is causing it to spill over the ''threshold'' below the door itself.\015

Answers :

Without knowing the model number of this Sears Kenmore dishwasher, it is difficult to be specific in a solution.\015\012
\015\012There is a float/switch that controls the amount of water added before each wash or rinse cycle. Replacing that float would be the first step.\015\012
\015\012Can not be more specific without knowing the model number.

Leaking dishwasher i have an 8yr old hoover dishwasher & it leaks on the rinse cycle. It's coming from underneath on the left hand side as you look at it. I've checked the hoses & clips on hoses, which seem ok. It only leaks as the water is coming into the machine on the rinse cyle. Never any other time, not even when it's filling for the wash cycle!

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.

Hello, my Hoover D7610 dishwasher has developed a problem, I would appreciate your advice.On starting a wash it appears to be working OK through what I believe to be a rinse cycle but then after about 20 minutes water pours out from the bottom of the door.

My trusty Bosch s510 Dishwasher which has been going strong for about 17 years (at least) has just decided not to empty itself. I noticed the bottom was full of water after a wash. I emptied all the water out by hand and presuming there is a blockage in the drain tried using a plunger to unblock it. I have since put it through another cycle and half way through water started leaking out of the front. At the end of the cycle the bottom of the dishwasher was again full of hot 'soapy' water.

I have an Asko DW1875 dishwasher (10yrs old) which has just recently started having problems. The initial symptom was that during a washing cycle, unit showed '1' and inside became very hot (melting some plastic cups/plates in unit). On further investigation (with diagnostic mode), the dishwasher is filling and draining with no problem. When circulation pump runs there is barely any water pressure in blades (just dribbles out) and water leaks into undertray via a plastic white tab near front (v

I have a GE GSD 5130 Dishwasher that leaks about 12 oz of water when it is pumping out the wash water and the rinse water. Its fine during the wash and filling cycle. Is it a seal problem?


This is more likely the hose connection at the drain pump or the pump housing is leaking. You will need to remove the toe kick, place unit into a drain cycle and inspect for a leak. Here is a couple links that should help.\015\012 ... GE GSD5130 Dishwasher

Global 450 dishlex dishwasher. Had the handle replaced 2 months ago. After that the ready light did not switch off as before. Now it only rinses. When you set the normal wash cycle the lights for Pre Wash, Wash and Rinse all come on. Pots cycle, the Pre Wash, Wash, Rinse and Dry all light up together, hence the machine thinks it up to that stage of the cycle. Can this be repaired or not. The machine is approx. 12 -14 years old.

Frigidaire dishwasher won't end cycle - will run on and on for hours. Sometimes it cycles through, usually it just endlessly washes and rinses. I have to CANCEL the cycle, which causes the dishwasher to empty and run a few RINSE ONLY cycles (which are consistent, cycle time wise) to rinse the soap off of the dishes. Also, the door for the soap seems to stick - how long into the cycle before the soap door should open? Also, does opening the washer during it's cycle (to add more dishes) change or
