SOURCE: black stuff in the bottom of the dishwasher

That black or gray stuff you're talking about is actually a combination of old food particles and soap deposits. The stuff builds up in the corners of the lower front areas of the tub and right under the inside of the door where it closes over the tub front. These areas can develop "scungy" deposits because these are areas that the dishwasher doesn't always clean and/or water remains pooled. A little routine cleaning about once a week around the bottom lip of the door and the door gasket with a damp sponge will prevent this build up. Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Dishwasher tub leaks underneath

Hello. Anything is worth trying! But I would recommend epoxy. It works alot better with plastic and rubber items. Most of the leaks I have found in Kenmore machines are at the water pump. You may want to take a peek while it's running, just stay away from the wires!! Thanks!

SOURCE: door still leaks after replacing bottom seal

the bottom seal isn't actually a seal, rather it serves as a splashguard. I had the same problem with the same model and started by replacing what I thought was a seal located at the bottom of the door.
Check if the screws on the top half of the pump (located under the lower spray arm which needs removed first) have become loose. The screws were barely in the threads which caused a stream of water towards the door and leaked between the splashguard and bottom edge of the tub and onto the floor.0d084cc.jpg

Dishwasher leak


leaks on washers are sometimes hard to find, so i'll tell you the two most common causes of washer leaks ive come across :
(1) DOOR SEALS these rubber seals don't last forever and if you use hard water to wash or heavy chlorinated they go fast , if you can pinch the rubber (hard) with your fingers and it doesn't relax back to normal in two seconds or less then yes its bad
(2) PUMP SEALS the water pumps are usually located in center of bottom of washer with a strong flashlight you see water dripping from center of unit (bottom) then chances are you have a bad pump seal
also i have found that using the new detergent packs of some brands cause pump seals to go as the plastic packs don't dissolve completely and get wrapped around pump shaft

Leaking dishwasher


1-if it is brand new it should be under warranty 2-try changing soap brand, some suds up more than others and sneak past the seals 3- where is it leaking? (around the door, or underneath ie likely motor seal or plumbing) 4- check Plumbing connections 5-most "tubs" nowadays are one piece plastic, look it over carefully with a good flashlight. if you think you have found a crack remember where it is start the dishwasher and run it till it starts leaking and then open it and examine that spot-with the heat it may open up more or otherwise change

I found some black plastic under the dishwasher and then found some more... it appears to be long as if it was the seal or something across the bottom of the door. Can you tell me what it is and what I...


Hello,
Its hard to tell from the description what it is. Does it like item #4 in first link OR item #31 in second link. If it is item #31 in second link its soundproofing insulation that attaches to kick plate and has come loose,a couple dabs of super glue would reattach it to kickplate

Leaking from bottom middle and right side of door


The center spray arm may not be turning straight and level, causing water to spray over the top of the splash shield. The shield needs to be adjusted to block water as it is sprayed from the center arm.

1. Remove the bottom door seal and reinstall, making sure there is not less than 3/8 inch of seal showing below bottom of internal door panel before closing the door.
2. Check tub seal, at the bottom the tub, seal makes a right angle and points to front of tub. In tub bottom there is a block molded in the tub, the tub seal is to fill this block but not extend over.
3. Select the shortest wash cycle or just use a rinse and hold cycle if available. Run the cycle, making sure the water spray changes from bottom to center not less than twice before making any adjustments.
4. If splash over is found, work only one side at a time. Remove black door seal enough to raise the splash shield up off the bottom of the tub not more than 1/8 inch and reinstall door seal properly. Retry and check for leaks.
5. If leak persists, remove door seal again. This time raise shield an additional 1/16 of an inch, then reinstall tub seal. After the first adjustment of 1/8 inch, any other adjustments will be no more than 1/16 inch at a time.
6. After splash over is stopped on one side go to the opposite side if needed.

We've had a similar problem. A banshee screaming noise that's makes the skin crawl. Since our machine is well out of warranty I took the insides apart and found only a few cherry pits. (Lesson learned, always scrape your dishes before loading.) We covered out ears for a few minutes and the bad, bad noise went away. But the noise came back, it didn't stay away.. So here's what I found with more tinkering.

1. Problem: Small hard things can get lodged in the food mill/grinder assembly at the bottom of the dishwasher tub. It's there to cut up the big chus of organic matter I presume.Today I found a thin piece of plastic about an 1" long that got caught and was resisting being ground(even though we know resistance is futile) by the grinder thing. Anyway, I took the offending piece out, put it back together and the machine is working fine. I have a hunch that the first instance may have been one of those stray cherry pits that broke up enough to get caught.

2. Solution: take apart inside assemblies to get down to the "foodmill" like thingie and see if there's something hard organic or unorganic causing the noise. Discard. Put back together and hope that solves it. (It did for our machine)

3. What's needed? Good knees or a decent knee pad and a few simple tools as follows:
A. 1- medium flat blade screwdriver
B. 2- TORX screwdrivers, # T-15 and T-20, or equivalent bits for a portable electric drill/screwdriver.
C. Small pair of regular pliers or simialr tool.
D. Muttering under your breath like Fred Flintstone, or not.

4. Process:
Take out the water jet assembly. It is held by a clip at the back and top. Use the screwdriver to pry the tabs away from the clips, then pull the assembly out at the bottom where it connects. It's a simple slide in/out fit. The bottom whirlygig water jet is fastened with a threaded cap that can be removed with the pliers. (BTW, this can get clogged with gunk. while you have it of check for gunk. Then, keeping track, remove the remaining hardware with the TORX #T-20 screwdriver until you get to a round black piece. The black piece has to come off before you can remove the piece with the filter and grinding screen. Use the #T-15 bit for removal of the black piece. Then remove the rest 'till you see a "blade". Hopefully in that process, whatever was causing "the noise" will fall out and you can discard it. Observe how gross it is in there, shudder, and begin the process in reverse.

I do have some pictures of the process in stages if you want. E-mail me at: gpfn47atyahoo.ca (note: please use the "@" symbol to replace the "at")
Well, that's it. I hope it helps someone.
Have a Blessed New Year!
