Question about Kenmore 24 in. 16032 Built-in Dishwasher
Do I just need a gasket for water pump?
do I need to throw the machine away?
can it be fixed?
Check the drain hose connection under the washer. make sure the hose hasn't separated form the drain housing. if the drain hose is not the leak spot, move on to the water valve assembly. check the connection there thoroughly. check the seals on the connection hose as well. if all checks out, this will most likely be a faulty water valve assembly.

When you are doing your laundry and you notice water on the floor that should not be there. A moderately handy homeowner will be able to identify and fix many kinds of leaks. Doing the service your self can save you the cost and hassle of having a service technician come out. Small leaks lead to large ones quickly, and that can result in ruined flooring and the possibility of mold growth. Fix most leaks in a day or less, with purchased parts from supply houses or home improvement stores.
Here are Instructions and tools Needed to solve the problem
1 Find the source of the leak. Turn on the machine while it is empty, and then look behind it with a flashlight while the tub is filling. Pay close attention to the hoses, and look for drips or running water. Some drips may start out slow, but gain momentum with continued water pressure.
2 Turn the water off. Often, if the water is leaking from the fitting where the hose attaches to the tap in the wall, you need to replace the hose gaskets. Unscrew the hose from the tap by hand or by using an adjustable wrench. Use a flathead screwdriver to pry the old gasket out. Place a new gasket in the hose connection where the old one was removed.
3 Turn the water on, and check for leaks again. If a leak is at the fitting or elsewhere on the hose itself, replace the entire hose and gasket assembly. Turn the water on again, and check for leaks. If the machine still leaks, check your work, and then look for other causes.
2. Pump Replacement 1Move the dial to the end of the wash cycle to drain the water from the tub. Turn the water off at the wall supply taps.
2 Remove the top of the washer. In many models, the top pops up when you apply upward pressure to the front of the washer at the joint. Sometimes, you may have to remove part of the instrument panel, which is attached with screws.
3 Look into the cabinet around the tub to find the pump. Pumps are either direct-drive or belt-driven. If you see a belt, you have a belt-driven pump. If there is no belt, it is a direct-drive pump. Remove water lines, and take out the old pump. Replace with a new pump, reattach water lines, and reattach the belt, if necessary. Turn on the water, and check for leaks.
Good Luck and thanks for using fixya.
