Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15932 Built-in Dishwasher
The dishwasher Model #587-15253400 is 2-3 years old. I have a leak that occurs aproxiametly 3/4 of the way through the wash cycle. A small puddle about the size of a quarter occurs on the floor about six inches from the front right corner of the door. The leak is so small I can't trace it. Any ideas?
wow that could be a tough one there is no door lock on a dishwasher only a door latch what happens when you depress the door latch and can you send me a model number so i can pull up the blue prints and see if we can figure out a way to open it try pushing on the door and depressing the latch at the same time let me know what happens

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.

I have a very similar dishwasher, with a very similar problem. I fixed it by removing debris from the water evacuator pump located towards the front of the bottom of the machine (the last motor before the drain hose. In my case, grape stems had clogged it up. Once emptied, it purrs once again. NOTE: don't disassemble the motor, just flush it out, there is an o-ring gasket that is a bear to re-install.

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.

check the spray arm to see that it is not cracked on a seam. take off the bottom panel. there should be four screws. use a flashlight and observe where the unit is leaking from. if it looks like it is coming down the shaft of the motor then you will most likely need a motor seal. some units you have to buy the motor/pump assembly. that can be expensive.
