Question about Kenmore 17252 Free-standing Dishwasher

Vent cover removal from Kenmore 17252 dishwasher door, for cleaning

Our particular dishwasher model has a circular vent on the inside of the dishwasher door. It was suggested I remove it in order to clean it out, as our dishwasher fails to dry our dishes. Do you know how it is to be removed, as it appears it wants to break when I try POPPING it out. Please advise. Kayzy

    I am sorry. We removed the kick panel now, and found an empty packet cover. Evidently the installers must have removed the instructions and they are no longer available.

    The particular vent in the door is ciruclar. We tried to remove it but it appears that it will break. We don't know if it is to rotate to be removed, or if it is to POP out.

    Please advise.

    It rotates and then lifts out. Not easy, but that's how mine comes out.

Kayzy If you remove the bottom kick panel you'll find the pouch with technical data on the inside part of it. You will find a complete instruction how to remove the vent. Gendos...post back

Water leaks out front

I had exactly the same problem with my Kenmore Ultrawash. I thought the leaking might be coming from the seals around the door, but found that it was leaking from the top as described. I removed the air vent cover on the inside of the door and found that it and the vent area had a great deal of what appeared to be dissolved paper. At first I thought perhaps this was somehow remenents of some kind of air filter, but after reading the post here, came to conclude this was foreign matter. I believe what happended is we at some time washed jars or something with lables on it and this stuff accummulated inside the air vent area. I think in a normal case, when the washer is running, water is mostly stopped from going into the air vent area by the hatched cover, but inevitably some water would get thru. This would be ok normally, because the water would just hit the vent area and probably just fall back into the washer. With all the debris stuck in the vent area and on the cover, I suspect the water was not able to exit the vent area or was hitting the debris and causing the water to jet out the opening to the front - hence the water coming out the vent and pouring down the front. Once I cleaned out the vent area and the cover from the debris, I replaced the cover and ran the washer with no water leaking anymore.

I'm so glad you posted your finding - it gave something to look into, and turned out to be the same source of the problem. You saved me a service call.

Kenmore dishwasher not cleaning properly

Look in the inside for any screen that would be easily removed, some dishwashers have a self cleaning filter so you may not find it. I have a lot of other tips for you if your dishwasher is not cleaning so check it out.

Soap door won't open

The detergent cup itself can become clogged with old dried detergent that prevents it from opening. Sometimes just cleaning the cup takes care of the problem. In case it will not solve your problem, the unit should be replaced. Good luck!
