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.

Not familiar with that model, but one time I found a baby sock jamming the water outlet in a dishwasher, so check to make sure there's no foreign object blocking any exits. Other than that, I suspect it will need to be serviced, or at least taken apart for further inspection.

KitchenAide Dishwasher KUDS01FL leaks water


i have had mine leak (usually out of the left side) I can see it coming off the black rubber seal that ends about 2/3 of the way down the side. ( I have also replaced the inner seal around the tub- that helped as the bottom of the seal would stick to the door when closed and make a gap for water to come out) I also notice that water and moisture comes out at the top of the dishwasher (then it leaks down the side and front) I have heard of many problems with the latch...and I can push mine closed tighter but it doesnt close completely with just the latch, but enough for the wash cycle to work. also just make sure there are no crumbs or something stuck around the liner. good luck mine has been a lemon and i cant wait to get a different brand.

Water comes out the bottom of the door. not


With very few exceptions, when a dishwasher leaks as you describe, the door gasket needs to be replaced. You have not posted the manufacturer and model number, so it is hard to help much more. Please post back here with further questions.

Good Luck!

Dishwasher will not go into wash cycle.


On the LG LDF6810 dishwasher, the best you can do is remove the bottom spray arm and then the 10 phillips screws that hold the filter down.
Pull the filter out and clean it as best you can.
Inspect the sump area beneath where the filter was. Be careful of broken glass and remove all debris. Use a flashlight and look into every little spot down there. Reassemble the dishwasher and operate your DW.
If you still have problems, I recommend a service call. Check your manual to confirm but most LG dishwashers have a 1 year parts & labor plus a 2 year parts only. Have your proof of purchase ready.

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.
