Kenmore Dishwasher 665-16765691 Leaks Under Door

19 August 2013 - 04:51 PM

This Kenmore 665-16765691 Ultra Wash dishwasher leaks erratically.  At first small leaks, but much more today.  Loading doesn't matter - leaks even when run empty (I've included a photo of the water level during a leak).


I've replaced the door seal (thought for sure that would fix it!).  No change.  I was suspecting the float switch of making it over fill, but as I saw today the water fills up to touch the bottom of the heater element, which I think is the right height.  This dishwasher has worked perfectly for a decade, so the installation and leveling should be ok.


I guess the next step is to take off the door and see if anything looks wrong at the bottom?


Any suggestions would be appreciated.
