Question about Kenmore Dishwashers
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.
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.

if you are very careful you can reseal it with a soldering iron as it should be a sealed cabinet. i have seen one seald with a cheap sealr and the cabinet turned orange.

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!
