Most likely the spring or springs that help the door up are broken. Usually, if you remove the lower front panel (usually 2 screws hold it on) you can access the springs. If they are broken, try your local appliance repair store for new ones. If they are that old, they may be rusted- be careful!

Water leaks from the bottom door


The gasket that surrounds the door will fix it. If that's what you ordered, it'll be taken care of upon installation.

Dishwasher leaks during the wash and rinse cycles from the front


Without knowing the model number of this Sears Kenmore dishwasher, it is difficult to be specific in a solution.
There 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.
Can not be more specific without knowing the model number.

Power going to dishwasher but nothing happens??


Gina, you probably blew a thermal fuse that sits on the control board. Easy fix. Have your husband first check the wiring to the dishwasher. Remove the toe panel and make sure the wire nut connections are good. If that is ok, he will have to remove the inner door screws to get to the control board. Lift out the inner door. Remove the control board cover, it just snaps off. He will see the thermal fuse on the upper right side. I will attach a photo of what it looks like...Catriver...post back
