Kenmore dishwasher leaking (PICTURES)
Posted 23 May 2005 - 05:37 PM
There is water coming from under unit and I am unable to determine where the source is. Also not sure how much I need to take apart to figure out where the problem is coming from.
See photo below:
I suspect the water is coming from the white plastic unit in the center of the picture. Specifically around the white crusty stuff (calcium?). The water seems to be most apparent around where this white material is. I have more pictures at http://daviscg.com/u...sher/index.html.
Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks!

Tighten that clamp at the top of the motor/pump and check to make sure both small hoses are tight.
Most likely cause of the leak is a bad pump seal or the small seal for the drain flapper valve has gone bad.
Dry the motor/pump real good then run it and see if you feel water around where the black motor attaches to the white pump body. If the water is coming down from where the motor connects to the pump then most diffinitely a bad pump impeller and seal kit.

If this is leaking down from a bad pump seal, what needs to be removed to inspect?

That'd grat if you could buy just the pump, but I think you need to buy the whole pump/motor assembly-- GE makes more money that way (GE made this dishwasher).
Sounds good. Think I can get away with the pump only?
