Kenmore Dishwasher leaks from fill spout

I have a Kenmore Dishwasher model 665. It has a leak in the fill spout that goes into the washer tub wall. The water inlet valve seems fine. The inlet valve is connected to the inlet spout with a black hose. The hose seems fine. The inlet spout is plastic and is fused to the left wall of the dishwasher. There seems to be no way to remove it (other than cutting it off).

I found this thread that describes my problem but there is no solution.
http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/showthread.php?t=777&highlight=kenmore+dishwasher+leak

I also can't find this fill spout so that I can order it and replace it.

I am thinking that maybe I could cut the spout off and then seal it up since it must be some sort of stress crack in the body of it. Or I could just remove it and make my own spout with some PVC pipe and fittings and then mount that (somehow) back to the washer wall.

I'm pretty handy so I'm wondering if this is something I can fix or if this is something that I need to call a professional to do.

thanks...

    I don't see anyone replied to this. . . I've go the same problem. What did you do? Looks like it has an anti-siphon function, I'm just thinking of filling it up with silicone.

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!

Washing machine is leaking from the bottom of the tub. model flse60rgs1


Hello there diana and welcome to fixya

Your washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: During fill only During drain and spin only All the time During fill only If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these: Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it. The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak. Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak. During drain and spin only A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details. All the time If the washer leaks all the time, check these: Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate. Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician. Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it. Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

I believe it is the water pump but, I would like to confirm. When the washer is filling up it leaks out from the bottom.


If you are sure it's leaking during the fill cycle, check the hose that goes from the fill valve (the plastic part that the washing machine hot and cold hoses hook up to) to the top of the tub. From the fill valve follow the hose that goes toward the top of the tub and look for loose clamps or fittings. Along the way, there is an item called an 'air gap' that prevents water from siphoning back into the water supply. Look for cracks in this component. Finally, check the fill spout for proper alignment and mounting or cracks.

Leaks water when filling up.


If the washer is leaking only during the fill and not all the time, the problem is most likely caused by a faulty air gap device, a leaking water inlet valve, or the tube. The air gap is a small device that keeps the washwater from being siphoned into the household water supply. It is usually located mid-way or at the end of the black hose that comes from the water inlet valve. Usually it is made of transluscent plastic. Look for leaks or cracks.

The tube is a rubber tube that runs between either the water inlet valve and either the air gap or the inlet spout. Check for leaks.

The water inlet spout - most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the flow of water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free from it's mounting, it can cause leaks.

These are the things to look for if the washer is only leaking during fill. Hope this helps and best wishes.
