Question about Kenmore Dishwashers

Open Question

I have a kenmore model 665.15812990 and it's leaking at the bottom of the door around the middle if that helps. It is not designed to have gasket or seal so it can't be that. I don't think it's feeling to full every time I open the door the water isn't even covering the heating element.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid dishwasher leaking from door

Check the screws on the pump cover under the lower spray arm (the spray arm is easy to remove, the screws are torx - maybe a torx 10 or 15, so a regular screwdriver wont work). They come loose on ours every 6-12 months and spray water at the door, causing it to leak all over our wood floor. I routinely tighten those screws now before they come loose enough to cause the problem.

Replacing the door seal doesn't help - if you look at it closely the bottom of the door doesn't seal against anything, it just overlaps the front of the tub so water sprayed hard against the front (from a leaking gasket) can go under the door and up and over the tub front, making it look like a door seal problem.

SOURCE: water leaks out front

I had exactly the same problem with my Kenmore Ultrawash. I thought the leaking might be coming from the seals around the door, but found that it was leaking from the top as described. I removed the air vent cover on the inside of the door and found that it and the vent area had a great deal of what appeared to be dissolved paper. At first I thought perhaps this was somehow remenents of some kind of air filter, but after reading the post here, came to conclude this was foreign matter. I believe what happended is we at some time washed jars or something with lables on it and this stuff accummulated inside the air vent area. I think in a normal case, when the washer is running, water is mostly stopped from going into the air vent area by the hatched cover, but inevitably some water would get thru. This would be ok normally, because the water would just hit the vent area and probably just fall back into the washer. With all the debris stuck in the vent area and on the cover, I suspect the water was not able to exit the vent area or was hitting the debris and causing the water to jet out the opening to the front - hence the water coming out the vent and pouring down the front. Once I cleaned out the vent area and the cover from the debris, I replaced the cover and ran the washer with no water leaking anymore.

I'm so glad you posted your finding - it gave something to look into, and turned out to be the same source of the problem. You saved me a service call.

SOURCE: dishwasher leaking around the bottom of the door

I had the same problem in 2004, lots of Bosch trained repair techs, calls to Bosch, and the appliance dealer we purchased it from with no answers. Our kitchen cabinet bases were ruined by the flooding that occured. After months of trying to get help I insisted on speaking to a supervisor that told me it was my fault for putting a flexible cutting board on the right side a blocking the vent. I told her that no where in the manual did it mention this issue and none of their trained techs were aware of this flaw in their design. When I asked about getting my cabinets repaired she said that was not an option. When I mentioned possible legal action her response was "good luck with that". Here it is 2009 and they recently called about a possible fire hazard recall for the control panel. The Bosch trained tech that came out to complete the repair knew nothing about the vent/flooding issue.

SOURCE: My Kenmore under counter ultra wash dishwasher

Happened on my dish washer too. Remove lower rack, remove lower spray arm by removing the center plastic nut, check screws (torx) on outside edge of pump. Tighten these as necessary, mine were loose causing water to spray forward against the tub causing leakage.

Kenmore front load washer door won't latch lock light on


On some Kenmore front load models, if the black gasket around the door opening is unseated (for example, because you drag some heavy wet laundry over it) the door will not engage the lock and stay closed. This is a feature to prevent the washer from leaking when the gasket is not sealed. To fix it, simply reseat the gasket and the door will close and lock.

Kenmore model #16761691 leaking at the bottom of the door. Where is the gasket located? Or is it another problem?


does it leak all the time or did it just start?try running it with nothing in it and see if it leaks,if the dishes were racked wrong the water can get deflected and leak out through the door,also,remove the bottom rack,look at the screws going around the bottom part under the wash arm,if any of those are loose it causes a wave in the dish washer and the water leaks from under the door.if it's leaking from one of the corners the gasket could be bad

Leaking from the front


I had same problem but different model #.
The part under the spray arm came lose and the gasket was hanging out. Causing it to squirt water right at the bottom of the door and leaking out. I took it apart put the gasket back in the groove, screwed it back down and is working great.

Kenmore dishwasher door leaks replaced gasket still leaks model#665.15669992 gasket replacement sears #3376927


check your overflow float inside the machine. it looks like a small hat or cone. it should move freely up and down. if it is stuck down, the water will continue to flow in. the gasket is designed to stop splashing water. it is not an underwater seal. good luck

I have a kenmore three door refrigerator ice crystal built


This is usually due to an air leak at the freezer door/drawer. Check out the gasket and if it is bad, out of place replace it. If the gasket looks good go around the door with a dollar bill closing the bill in the door. The dollar bill should resist being pulled out. If you find spots where the bill slips out easily this is a spot where the door/drawer is not sealing good and letting in air causing the frosting.

When starting dish washer water comes out at bottom of door about in the middle


You don't list the manufacturer or model number, not its approximate age but there are generally two things that need to be repaired or adjusted when you have a leak.
1.) The door gasket

2.) The door latch ... but if after you close the door and it latches, if it appears to lock tight, replace the gasket.

Good Luck! Please post back here what you find and decide to do, OK?

If the unit leaks during use with a constant drip from the 6 o'clock location between the seal and the glass on the door the solution is to change tha door seal. it is quite difficult to do I would recommend you call a local service company.

Leaking out of door


THE ISSUE IS JUST THAT YOU HAVE THE MACHINE COMPLETELY LEVEL CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF DISHWASHER ARE NOT DESIGNED TO BE IINSTALLED COMPLETELY LEVEL U NEED A SLIGHT INCLINE FROM FRONT TO BACK ABOUT A 6 TO 12 DEGREE PITCH BACK. THIS IS BECAUSE THE DOOR DOESNOT HAVE STRONG GASKETS ON THE BOTTOM OF THE INSIDE PANEL. BY PERFORMING THIS TASK YOU WILL ALLOW THE WATER APON ROTATION TO TO HIT HIGH ON THE DOOR AND ROLL BACKWARD AND NOT HIT THE BOTTOM GASKET DIRECTLY ON ROLL OUT OF THE DOOR

Kenmore Ultra Wash 3 Leaking


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.
