Question about Kenmore 15899 Built-in Dishwasher
I have a 5-8 year old Kenmore dishwasher that is now leaking underneath. It is a slow, steady drip when the unit has water in the bottom of the inside tub.
I got underneath with a flashlight and mirror and found a 1/8 - 1/4 inch crack in the tub. My questions are: Would repairing it with JB Weld work? Could the crack be old and now water is somehow getting in between the tub walls and now leaking? There is no hole inside of the tub. I was thinking water could be getting in around the sump seal or something now and coming out of an existing crack. Thanks for any suggestions.
Hello. Anything is worth trying! But I would recommend epoxy. It works alot better with plastic and rubber items. Most of the leaks I have found in Kenmore machines are at the water pump. You may want to take a peek while it's running, just stay away from the wires!! Thanks!
