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.

SOURCE: dishwasher does not fill

Hi,
Double check that your water supply line is not kinked.
This sounds like a bad fill valve. If you have hard water and most everyone does after a few years the valve will quit working properly and will fail in one of 2 ways a slow or no fill or it will not shut off completely.
I hope this helps if I can help with anything else please let me know.

Check your main power input. Switch off and ON. If no display
Internal fuse / circuit would have tripped.

Try replacing / Resetting. No improvement contact service center for assistance.

SOURCE: kenmore dishwasher water will not stay in there

It sounds like you have a drain hose problem. The drain hose needs to have a rise in it. If it is going down hill or to a drain that is lower than the tub it can drain as fast as it fills.

FRIGIDAIRE DISHWASHER LEAKING FROM TOP LEFT CORNER OF DOOR IN THE VENT AREA


Typically in this area of the dishwasher door there should not be any leaking. You might be experiencing severe steam and condensation from a cycle that has been completed. You may also go to open the door after a cycle is completed, and a little residual water will escape out of the vent that is angled downward.

The dishwasher is working, but there is a soap like film left behind on the dishes, glasses and silverware. It's a Kenmore dishwasher.


Hi
White film deposits are observed if water is hard or when you are using more detergent than needed, try filling detergent cup half way. Try using white vinegar after the wash cycle is complete, run a complete cycle. Also turn down the heat on the hot water fed to the dishwasher. Try using water softener for better results.
You can also add vinegar in the final rinse cycle.
Hope this helps... Please post back if more information is required.

Have you run out of Rinse Aid ?
This has a large effect on drying as well as how clean the dishes come out. Rinse aid [breaks up] the water dispersion, so at the end of the final rinse, the water just falls off the dishes, takes the sediment with it. So with the heat of the final rinse, & less water left on the dishes, they dry better.

Dishwasher leaks during rinse cycle


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

Dishwasher leaks during the wash and rinse cycles from the front


Without knowing the model number of this Sears Kenmore dishwasher, it is difficult to be specific in a solution.
There is a float/switch that controls the amount of water added before each wash or rinse cycle. Replacing that float would be the first step.
Can not be more specific without knowing the model number.

LG dishwasher is dripping water from vent onto floor


Good that it is working. Recommend you keep a lose eye on the vent on the bottom of the door panel. This model will probably begin leaking again if it has not been retrofit with a kit that LG developed.
Please open a new problem when it starts to leak and please provide the Model and serial number when you do. Good Luck!

Water Leak at vent area in door...


On this model the vent is open and shut by a wax motor. The vent should be closed tight during the entire wash cycle and the first 6 minutes of the drying cycle. Check the operation, make sure there is not a bunch of gunk restricting it. If you are handy with a meter check the resistance of the motor. It should read approx. 2100ohms. Another reason for leaking at the base is oversudzing. Also check the upper spray arm for cracks or splits shooting water into the vent area. Catriver...post back.
