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.

I have a kitchenaid dishwasher model KUDMOITJBLO installed as new unit in Oct. 2002 in a new home. Current problem is water coming from front door, bottom as unit starts wash cycle after filling. Leak is...


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..

Leaking from the bottom a lot, immediately when I start the cycle


I found this post on another website. Hope it helps:

"Six torx screws securing the fine mesh filter just below the lower spray arm. Make sure they're all tight. Bit size is T 20 also, check for damage to the mesh screen. What happens when those screws are loose is water pressure seeps under and creates a tidal wave sort of effect by spraying water forward instead of thru spray arm...long shot, but I've seen it 50 times."

KitchenAid Model #KUDIO1ILBL6 Dishwasher has stopped working. The buttons on the front won't start the machine. For the last few months the cycles seemed to take longer than normal but we didn't worry about it. Three weeks ago, it just stopped working. The buttons on the front don't light up and do nothing when pushed. The only button that works is the CANCEL, and then it just drains what is in the washer. We have disconnected the breaker for awhile and it didn't make any difference. We are getting power just fine. I found the sequence to use which made most of the lights come on, then it would blink back and forth between the NORMAL and the RINSE ONLY buttons. The washer would 'sound' like it was working but it only lasted for two minutes, and then back to nothing again. I have called KitchenAid directly and was definately NOT impressed, and I also talked to two different people on their chat line, and they couldn't tell me anymore than I already knew. How do I know if it is the Front Panel that needs to be replaced or if its the Electronic Control box? Everything looks fine,,, no water, dust, dirt, corrosion, its all very clean inside the door panel. All the wiring and connections looks great. The parts are very expensive so I am wondering if its even worth messing with at this point. I can't afford a repairman right now, and really can't afford the parts. I would appreciate any suggestions as to fixing this dishwasher. Thanks in advance.
