Question about Kenmore 15129 Built-in Dishwasher
It leaks at the bottom of the front door, everything seems to be tight and the gasket seems alright
Got a possible solution from a brilliant guy named Jake on another website and thought I would post it back here.
"Check the door vent on the inner side of the door, that should just snap out, I have seen those clog and start making more pressure inside to make it leak from the bottom. Jake"
I checked mine and got a nasty surprise. Who knew it could get so dirty.

"Need to check the screws under the lower spray arm. Sometimes these come loose and the gasket becomes disloged spraying excess water on the door causing it to leak."
After reading this I checked-and yes, this was my problem. Romoving the bottom spray arm (big plastic wing nut) -removing the (loose) screws around the bottom spray arm, reseating the black gasket and returning the screws-solved my door leak problem on my Kenmore 665. I removed and inspected the door vent and it appeared to be working normally. Note the door vent can be removed from the inside by turning counter-clockwise.

If it comes out 'foamy' then liquid dish soap is getting introduced into the dishwasher. Liquid dish soap is different than automatic dishwasher detergent. liquid dish soap needs to be COMPLETELY rinsed from anything that has been pre-soaked prior to putting in the dishwasher. after a couple of regular cycles the foam will go away. Nowadays liquid dish soap is also 'concentrated' or 'ultra concentrated' which doesn't help. hope this helps.

This can be caused by a hard water build-up indise the door. Take the door pane of and clean off all of the calciu and your poblem should go away.
