In Topic: Kenmore Elite - making noise lower left

Thanks for the response.  Would the symptom for needing the seal kit be leakage underneath? 

 

Checked underneath the "hood" and definitely is the main motor/pump.  Just finished removing pump impeller, housing and cleaned a couple of hard items out (olive pit, walnut shell) and put it back together and noise may have gone - ran a quick rinse and then cancel drain with no noise.  running through a normal cycle now and so far no similar noise.  Will report back

Do you mean numbers missing in the model #? Manual is for a Kenmore elite dishwasher and lists "Models 665.15972, xxx74, xxx79, xxxx73. I'm not really sure which mine is but guessed xxx74 because the label inside top says, "974456A" near the instruction stickers.

I don't have a "high temp wash" button; but manual list temps for normal wash which is the one we always used successfully as 140 F unless the soil sensor detects "light" in which case it doesn't boost water temp.

How do I test the thermistor?

Thanks for the assistance so far.  I ordered a replacement air gap and installed it successfully fixing the leak.  Apparently, that original air gap must be notorious for leaking since the new part is specifically called out for "eliminating moisture leakage" common with original part.  So that's all good, but now a new leak - it must have already been there, but was masked by the other leak.

OK, pretty specific source/location.  Tried to attach a video without luck (maybe first need to upload to youtube?) What the video would show is two leaks - one emanating from each side of the lower part of the front of the tub - doesn't seem to be coming through the door, rather leaking through the door/tub junction.  It only occurs when the spray cycle first starts and then no more and dumps about 2-3 ounces on the ground.

I previously cleaned gunk from the gasket - and there are no breaks/kinks and such.  I included a picture of the gasket from the inside.

:shock::):);););););) (my kid's contribution)

Enlighten me.
