#319099 Kenmore Elite DW F665.13969K017 leaks from bottom (hose disconnected?)

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 03 May 2015 - 08:08 AM

Hmmm, well I've contacted Sears, they said "yep, no warranty.  Call our recall department Monday morning to see if there's any recall".  So I'll call tomorrow to see what they say.  I'm going to reference the Whirlpool "Technical Service Pointer" #W10547922. 

Sadly, does NOT apply to your Kenmore model, and there are no recalls on that specific model.

#319038 LG Dishwasher Leak (model: LDS5811ST)

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 02 May 2015 - 06:48 AM

In the process of troubleshooting I noticed water seeping out of the dishwasher tub into a tray at the bottom, just beneath the door.  The tray had lots of food and soap scum (pretty nasty).  It seemed odd to me that the water isn't contained inside the dishwasher basin.  Or is this LG model designed to operate this way? If it isn't, do I need to replace a gasket somewhere inside the basin or sump gasket or elsewhere?   


Most dishwashers are designed they way you are describing, the bottom door seal only keeps water from splashing out over the front lip of the tub. It is NOT water tight, and water, soap, and scum tends to collect in that area.

In an over-fill, or an over-sudsing situation, the water will flow over the lip and onto the floor. Unless that is happening, the water you are seeing is nothing to be concerned about.

The reason I ask, could be something stuck in the impeller if it hums but does not turn.

Check valve in drain hose will kick your butt, but you checked that?

(the little short drain hose attached directly to the drain pump)

#317076 Bosch SHX46A05UC/30 does not enter cycles

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 05 April 2015 - 07:35 AM

Did you change the control without removing power? Did you remove power and re-apply to see if control would reset? Just curious, anyway, I had a control or two do this right out of the box as a bad replacement control...

Worked on my first dishwasher today. What a nightmare, Not the dishwasher but that a previous "tech" had worked on it. He had swapped boards from top to bottom and all kinds of crap.

Check condition and alignment of the filter check valve


1. Water and debris flow from the tub into the sump chamber, through the metal impeller blade of the nut grater and upward toward the lower spray arm.
2. The drain solenoid closes the drain valve. Water is directed into the bypass drain connector and moves into the collection chamber. Water pressure pushes the filter check ball upwards, closing off the passage to the fine filter.
3. Water and collected debris pass through the drain hose connection and are discharged through the drain

Although it didn't come up for this model, Whirlpool did add a plastic liner to the insulation blanket on another model with this issue. If I come across that Service Flash, I'll let you know. In the meantime, maybe someone else will know what I am talking about and post it here...
