Re: why kenmore 665 leaks under door
This is common if the wrong detergent was used or some regular sudsing soap like hand dish washing soap was accidentally used. Clear the suds if there by adding a small amount of cooking oil to the soapy water then wash for a bit and cancel drain. Repeat if needed.
If this is not the problem look for something blocking the spray arms from turning, if they spray in one spot only they can splash water out the front.
Check the unit for level, if it is tilted forward it could be spilling while washing.
Look for cracks in the spray arms where too much water sprays from one place.
Make sure the middle spray arm has not fallen off. If it continues try moving the rack to the higher or lower position and see if this helps

Before I took the machine out from under the cabinet, I would take a really strong light and some hand mirrors and try to see it leaking with the front cover off.
There is not a good chance this can be done.
Other than that, I would pull the machine out from the hole and test it where I could look underneath.
Should be either a drain hose of an inlet hose giving you trouble.
God bless your efforts.
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
IF LEAK IS FROM AROUND SIDES OR TOP OF DOOR, IT COULD BE THE DOOR GASKET, FIRST MAKE SURE THAT THE DOOR IS NOT MAKING CONTACT ON THE SIDES WITH CABINETS, THEN CHECK THAT THE SPRAY ARM ROTATES FREELY INSIDE AND NOT SPRAYING DIRECTLY ON EDGE OF DOOR. THE GASKETS ARE REPLACEABLE. IF LEAK IS COMING FROM BOTTOM OF DOOR THEN THE PIECE IS CALLED A BAFFLE AND IS ALSO REPLACEABLE. MOSTLY THE PROBLEM IS OTHER THAT DOOR GASKET OR BAFFLE. THE DOOR DOES NOT CLOSE COMPLETELY WHEN CONTACTING THE CABINETS.
it sounds like you need to adjust the door latch so that the top of the door will close tighter. when in the rinse cycle try pushing door at top to see if leak stops. if that doesn't let you know something then you got me. you have changed all that i can think of. Good luck
The first thing to check is door gasket< bad corners,gap in side,bottom or top. Close door on a dollar bill and try to slide it top to bottom side to side and if it slides fairly easy then seal is not doing good. If you find dirty area clean it off along with the cabinet side as well.If you find the side is leaking then heat gasket with hair dryer and apply vasoline to gasket to help it move freely. If you find tear or hole then replace it.
Step1 Inspect the door gasket. As it ages, the gasket can crack or become hard, preventing it from sealing completely. Step 2 If the gasket appears solid, adjust the door latch so the door seals tightly. Loosen the screw that holds the door latch to the cabinet. Push the latch in slightly and retighten the screw. Test the door and readjust the latch if necessary. Step 3 Replace the gasket if water continues to leak after you've tightened the latch. Most gaskets are held by compression in a groove on the door or on the dishwasher cabinet. Step 4 Pull the old gasket out of its groove, using adjustable pliers (see illustration). Take the gasket to an appliance store to get a replacement. Step 5 Soak the new gasket in warm water to soften it, then press it into the groove. Start at the top, then work your way down the sides and across the bottom.
