Kenmore Quiet Guard Door leaking

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?

Thanks
Don

    Hey, i have a similar problem, except my leaks are larger, sometimes puddle size, happens always in first wash; i took the entire door apart, but cant find the leak yet... any ideas?

    I have the same problem. My dishwasher leaks from the bottom of the door. It takes a towel to contain it. I replaced the door seal, but it did not fix it. It seems like the water level is too high. Any solutions out there?

    I have the same problem. I really don't think it's the door though. I can see massive amounts of water pouring out of the bottom about a foot back. It comes out about three times during the normal wash cycle and flows out where a red wire meets a plastic peice. I wish I had noticed this sooner because my hardwood floors on the other side of the wall are popping up!



    So, there are alot of us with the same problem, maybe someone out there can help.

    Have the same problem. Ordered a new door seal because it looked torn and new one looks like the old one.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Kenmore Ultrawash Quiet Guard 5 making buzzing/grinding noise

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.

I have a Kenmore quiet guard 3 model: 665.74364k2 and serie F55202295. It is not draining properly. It works fine and cleans the dishes but when it goes to drain it leaks in my basement ceiling and vents.


i thought I responded to this.

make sure the air gap in the kitchen plumbing (if installed is clear). Also check the kitchen drain is not blocked. If using garbage disposer in sink, then make sure it is run before you start the dishwasher.

if you have an air gap vent in the kitchen sink plumbing then make sure it is clear. Also looks like the kitchen drain end is blocked. Pour some caustic soda into the sink drain, wait 10 minutes and run water into the sink.

If you are using insinkerator (garbage disposer) in sink, make sure it is run before you start the dishwasher.

Kenmore Quiet Guard


You dont really need it, when the washer gets done Open the door for a minute and let the steam out and shut the door dishes will then dry. the reason there still wet is because of the steam from the Hot water

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.

Water leak


Mine also started leaking. Element also too hot. Mine has a 20 year warrenty on the tub (which I was NOT aware of) Repairman came today and the whole tub unit and element will be fixed for free! Look in your whirlpool instruction book to see if yours is warrentied. BTW, my dishwasher is only three years old.
