Question about Kenmore 16602 / 16604 / 16609 Built-in Dishwasher
I have a leak but dont know where from. Its definitely not the water in and I suspect it may be the drain but when I looked usisg a flashlight I didn't see any signs. Just a little too far to get my hand and arm in through the back.Are ther other reasons why the machine might leak?
1 Water pump will always leak on shaft seal. Seals no longer available and must by pump and motor.
Main shaft seal will leak and then rust hidden main bearing. This is BIG problem but not unfixable. 2 Maytag OEM tools required to dissassemble and shitload of parts.
Maytag service guy charged me $120 for 20second look then walked on me as he said it was too hard work. He was right but I'm the bunny that dropped 2 grand on a washing machine 2 days out of warrenty so I fixed myself,

Check under while the washer is filling and draining. You could have a loose clamp on a hose, the seal on the shaft may only leak while doing these. On the other hand, more times than not, rodents seem to enjoy chewing on washer catch basins.
