Kenmore dishwasher leaking from upper vent in door

\015 Kenmore Ultrawash dishwasher is leaking from the vent in the upper left corner of the door. I removed the front panel from the door and ran dishwasher to isolate leak and about half way through the wash cycle water begins dripping from the area around the upper door vent. Does the vent have seals that can go bad? If so are they serviceable?\015

Have a Kenmore dishwasher #665.1677993, approx. 13 years old. Upon starting new cycle the pump turns on for a few short seconds, then off, then after a couple minutes it goes on again for a few seconds then off, then later in the cycle it does stay on for a longer period of time. In conjuntion with this intermitent problem it has begun leaking out the bottom of the front door. I have checked drain line, check valve, strainer/screen and vent in the door. I assume it is an electrical issue?

Leaking This is a problem that I have when the dishwasher is in drying mode. I will find a 5X5 and sometimes smaller, size water spot under the dishwasher after the dishwasher has stopped. I was told it was the vent were the steam comes out and I had that replaced. It still leaks, then they told me to replace the rubber around the door, still leaks now they order a whole new plastic interior door. Please if you have any ideas what could be causing the problem, please let me know. Thank you

Dishwasher leak I have a General Electric Potscrubber Mobile Maid dishwasher (model GSC720?) that hasn't been used in some time, but appears to still work OK. It has a leak from the left hand vent opening in the bottom of the door when operating. The seal around the door appears intact and doesn't leak. Can you suggest a probable cause, and remedy? Thanks, Bob.


With dishwasher empty and disconnected, find the screws around the area of the "vent",you may need to open it from the bottom. There will be a hose that has either ruptured or just needs the clamp tightened with a screw driver. I think that the hose ... Dishwashers

Door leak I have a small leak between the bottom of the dishwasher door the lower service panel on the dishwashere. I did replace the seal on the inside bottom of the door along with the other parts that come with the door seal. Could there be a gasket leak around the detergent dispenser or the vent at the top of the inside of the door. I did not check the water lever as was mentioned in a previous question on water level, but the float does move up and down quite freely. Any suggestions as to w

My Kenmore under counter ultra wash dishwasher model 665.15825691 has started leaking at the lower corners of the door. The leaks seem to occur during the final rinse while the water is being heated.

Have the Kenmore Limited Edition dishwasher, model # 665.15892100. When dishwasher is running, you can hear the soap container flip open. However, @ end of washer's completion, and main door is opened, the soap is still in the container. Some has leaked out, but the majority is still in the container. Dishes are still dirty, so it appears that either there is no water to disperse the soap, or does the door really open? Any ideas?

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

I have a 12 year old Kenmore Ultrwash Model #665.15951790. I recently replenished the rinse aid dispenser and am experiencing an oversuding problem. It was oversuding to the point that suds were coming out the bottom of the door.

Kenmore dishwasher. The upper rack is not getting clean. Even very light residue remains. And, detergent is left in door at end of cycle. The bottom is filling up, so I don't think it's the intake valve. Also, all the blade openings appear clear. I am noticing that hot water is not filling the dishwasher when I first run the cycle. Even if I have hot water running in the sink, the dishwasher fills with cold or warm water. So, I think this is the problem. What should I do? Thank you in advance!


I find it odd that the dishwasher is filling with cold water if the water is hot at the sink. It sounds like the dishwasher is connected to the cold water line rather than the hot. Check under your sink; if you've got standard plumbing, the dishwas ... Dishwashers

My Kenmore dishwasher leaked out through the door and into the kitchen. It appears it is not draining and once the water reaches a certain level, pushes out the door. It did this before and we thought maybe the drain was clogged, but couldn't see anything. Ran it again and was fine but has now done it again. Could this be the control module or the overfill control, or something else?
