Hi there,
dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, check these:

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom
of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you.
But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the
entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from
leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher,
remove the:

* Lower rack
*Spray arm
* Spray arm support
* Wash/drain impellers

Then try the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly.
You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the
rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten
or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues
to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the
dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the
leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

    I have a Kenmore Model 665.15835793 (same as Whirlpool Model 665.*** I had the same leak and change the door seal which was no help. It would leak from the bottom left side of door. I fixed mine today by removing the inner panel of the door, by removing the 6 to 8 torx screws. and then removing the Vent from the top left of the door. At this point you can just lift the inner door out so it will easy to work on. My vent was clogged up with what looked to be mold,which prevented the water from returning to the main washer and was being flooded and sending the water down the inside of the door.. I cleaned and reinstalled the vent assembly,which fixed the problem. After removing the inner panel you can pull out on the vent cover from the bottom and then you will see two small tabs that need to be depressed, which will release the back portion of the vent. If yours is clogged up, this is probably your solution. Just clean it up good and put it back together. Doesn't cost anything to fix, just about an hours work. I have been searching for a fix for several weeks in many forums, and no one ever mentioned the vent being clogged up. I hope this helps someone, and if it does please put on your forums to help others. That's what I am doing now. Good luck fondren@myway.com

Why is my dishwasher leaking soap foam from the lower left area of the door?


A leaking dishwasher can be caused by excessive soapsuds. Excessive soapsuds are the most common reason dishwashers leak. Excessive soapsuds will cause dishwashers to leak from the door. Good dishwasher detergent will have no more than half inch of suds on top of the water. So any time your dishwasher is leaking from the door open the door, if there is more than a half inch of suds your problem is in your soap. One drop of hand soap, hand dish washing soap, or any other soap will cause dishwashers to leak. Now, I am not suggesting that you intentionally put this soap in the dishwasher because if you did the soapsuds would be from top-to-bottom of your dishwasher. Now if there are a lot of suds you can fix it by pouring vinegar or cold water into the dishwasher and running it, this will kill the subs.

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.I would start by removing the outer door panel remove the screws around the inner door to do this.Then close the door and start a cycle. Sometimes you can see obvious signs of leaks just by removing the panel too. But if not let it run and see if you see water leaking anywhere. You will see water in the bottom corners its normal. If water is splashing over those corners the check the lower spray arm gor damage or cracks it can cause this problem also make sure the screws under the spray arm are tight. also check the upper arm.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

New SHE4AM16UC, professionally installed eight months ago. Worked fine with very light usage until now. Dishwasher starts normally but stops and signals "clean" after less than five minutes on any cycle....


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...


-high temp wash

-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry


All the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cycle finish (1-2 minutes). You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal. If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (i.e. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).



Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

I turn the dishwasher on normal wash and never stop washing i let it run for 2 hours and stiil running


Your dish washer probably has a "turbidity sensor". This is an infrared sensor that checks the condition of the water and adjusts your wash cycle accordingly. There is probably build up on the sensor (especially if you have hard water) and this is causing it to run so long. The easiest fix for this is to run a cleaning cycle on the dishwasher. Start your empty dish washer on a heavy wash cycle and wait for it to start filling with water. As soon as it starts to fill, open the door and pour 1/2 gallon of white vinegar into the bottom of the unit. Close the door and let it run its cycle. At the end of the cycle, run a second cycle and see if things improved. If things still are not better, you may have a bad sensor. If you have more questions, write me back. Hope this helps!
