Question about Kenmore 15899 Built-in Dishwasher
I turned on the dishwasher as always. Ran it through it's cycle and it started leaking water all over the floor. After the cycle was over and several towels and small tupperware containers to catch and sop up the water, I opened the dishwasher and the water was still at the bottom all dirty and gray.
HI.This is a drain issue. check the following areas for faults.
1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.
If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.
Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.
Ok, if the hoses are ok and not clogged, this will confirm a major issue that concerns the drain assembly or pump impeller.
replace the pump(drain) if found to be faulty.

I just fix mine today, august 21st. If you hear the pump running, which mine was, then there is a blockage more than likely. Mine was blocked on the inside of the drain hose inlet of the disposal. Pull off the hose and feel inside of the inlet. scrap it out and it should work fine.
