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
how much water? there should always be at least an inch to 1&1/2 inches in bottom to keep seal at top of motor wet if seal drys out thern washer will leak around motor.if alott more than what i wrote then check float valve if it is sticking then see if anything is under it l/e a fork or something that may be keeping the float from dropping down to the proper draln level
I am not familiar with your particular model - so take my advice lightly. Usually the motor and sump (not the bottom pan) come as one assembly that come as a unit. Replacing both is usually easiest and economical considering that a motor problem could be caused by something wrong with the sump, or the other away around. Thiis is something you can fix yourself if you are mechanically inclined.
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.
You could have a bad timer or a bad water valve. You could also have a wire off the water valve...cut the water and power supply off and remove the inlet hose from the valve. Remove the valve from the unit and check for debris in the valve this also could contribute to you not having water.
Those are Chinese massage balls. You place them in your palm and rub them together and the result is a "calming" effect, which are ingeniously placed their by the courteous engineers at Kenmore to help you relax while you perform the self-repair. Just kidding. I had the same problem and learned that they are called "float balls". There should a small hole where the water comes up and drains - they are placed in that hole.
This sounds like a case of the water rising too high in the machine. If your unit has a float to control the water level (located in the wash area), it is likely stuck. Free it by letting water into the machine and then exercising it to get the 'goo' out. If it has a pressure switch located in the motor area, clean out the line.
