Question about Kenmore 15129 Built-in Dishwasher
Dishwasher is leaking onto the floor. If you follow the black inlet water hose from the water solenoid up the side of the dishwasher cabinet on the lower left, it will make a 180 degree downward turn and connect to a plastic piece with a rectangualar hole on the front side. I am told that is called a fill funnel. That is where the water enters the dishwasher. Water comes out of this rectangular hole and onto the floor anytime the water solenoid is entergized. The dishwasher is not full of water. I can see a little under the round disc shape inside the dishwasher in the bottom. When the dishwasher is on, the sprayer wands are not spining and no water spray. Everything sounds normal when you turn it on. Pump runs, but no water spray in the dishwasher and a mess on the floor. I don't think I have given the dishwasher time to fill because of so much water coming out the top of the fill funnel. There are no cracks or breaks. It all still looks new in there. Should I try pinching off the fill hose some and see what happens? My wife is already hitting me up to buy a new dishwasher. Yikes!
Inspect the door gasket. As it ages, the gasket can crack or become hard, preventing it from sealing completely.
If the gasket appears solid, adjust the door latch so the door seals tightly. Loosen the screw that holds the door latch to the cabinet. Push the latch in slightly and retighten the screw. Test the door and readjust the latch if necessary.
Replace the gasket if water continues to leak after you've tightened the latch. Most gaskets are held by compression in a groove on the door or on the dishwasher cabinet.
Pull the old gasket out of its groove, using adjustable pliers (see illustration). Take the gasket to an appliance store to get a replacement.
Soak the new gasket in warm water to soften it, then press it into the groove. Start at the top, then work your way down the sides and across the bottom.
