Periodic water leaking from Kenmore Elite K701

We have a 1.5 year old dishwasher Kenmore Elite K701 that periodically leaks a large amount of water on the floor.Connections under neath are all tight and a Sears repair man could find nothing wrong .It appears to come from the side along the door but gasket appears normal.
Any help"?
Thanks
Adrian

Hello Adrian. I am suspicious that the standing drain pipe behind your machine may sometimes over flow. To find out, pack some dry newspaper around the drain hose where it enters the drain line behind the machine. If that newspaper gets wet you will know that the drain is sometimes overflowing. If that is the case, snake that drain or force a garden hose down it and run hot water thru it for ten minutes. J.

I have a Kenmore Elite Oasis HE top load. The machine sounds like a thunder when it spins, and also a pond of water leaks on the floor.


Check your hoses for leaks or possibly the drain it's draining in is clogged or half clogged or too clogged to accept large amounts of water all at the same time. Not to sure bout the thunder part. Lol

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (2004) and recently it has been leaking internally at a very slow pace. When not in use it will slowly fill until the floor of the unit is filled and then leak onto the...


Hello,
The water is admitted into the dishwasher through a little magnetically controlled valve underneath your dishwasher. This valve opens and shuts electrically. There is a little plunger in it that is pushed shut by a spring when no power is applied to the magnetic coil. Dirt can get underneath the plunger and allow water to seep through the valve. That is what is happening in your case. This soleniod vavle will need to be replaced.
This tip is about that valve and will help you to idenify it, find a replacement and install a new one. The problem is different, but the reverse is happening for you.

My dishwasher was run without water in it. did i break it?


By the way, was it still running when you put it off. Anyway, If it was for a short period of a few minutes, 2 to 3 minutes, no damage done. For a longer period, you could have damage the pump. Anyway, try it again, but with water, check pump water leak. If it does, put it off. Have the pump mechanical seal replaced, and continue the test. If there's no water pump in it, just continue the test. You may still have it in good working condition.

My kenmore built in dishwasher is leaking out the front


change the door gasket. also check to see if the wall hasn't "sprung out" of position this will always cause leaks if the side walls aren't supported.
