Question about Kenmore Dishwashers
The leaking could be caused by a couple of things. First check to see that the lower door edge and cabinet seals are intact and haven't been moved out of position, etc. (some DW's only have one seal, others have two) - can't be exact without model numbers, etc.)
Also check the water level switch, normally in the left front corner inside the wash tub. It is usually under a cover that is either held in place by a plastic clip or a small 1/4" screw holding it to the tub bottom.
Remove the cover and clean the float underneath, it's possible that it's gotten gunked up over the years and is sticking or has a buildup inside it that is causing it to not float properly, hence it'll allow for overfilling of the wash tub.
Put it back together and run a short rinse cycle to see if that has resolved the leaking. If not, it could be the float switch has moved out of position, but that is not a typical problem unless the DW has been removed recently and got damaged, etc.
Hope this helps resolve your problem! Best Regards!
