Hello, I have a Kenmore Dishwasher, Model 66515777990. It leaks under the
door. Not from under the unit, just under the door. What can cause this,
the door seal? What else?
The Homeowners Hub site is not a help forum.
It's an *advertising* forum that invades real
forums (like "alt.home.repair", part of
"usenet") parasitically in order to generate
free advertising for itself, which continually
advances its search engine placement, thereby
increasing its own revenue through its click-
through advertising commissions.
So the first thing you should do is write them
an email and tell them to quit spamming.
Then try to find your way here through proper
channels. Please do a google search on "Usenet"
and post the regular way.
I'll add my two cents to the other responders and top post to boot.
If you are going to add your cut and paste response to those unfortunate
enough to visit the homeowners hub site, please add something to the
subject line so I don't have to click on your response to get the same
old, same old .
I don't want to waste my clicks since I don't have many left.
My only alternative is to just filter all your responses.

Please do Chris. A search may help explain to you about top posting.
You never believed me, as kind as I've been trying to help you.
Just to remind you, you will _never_ stop web based sites from porting

Our dishwasher did that. Called the repair guy and his solution was to
run the d.w. with a quart of white vinegar poured into it, no dishes.
The detergents cause a build-up that keeps it from draining properly.

My parents' dishwasher did that -- it turned out to be a cracked spray
arm that was shooting water straight at the door in just the right way
(the door isn't completely sealed; the DW doesn't fill up beyond the
pan unless there's a problem with the drain/float (which we had
eliminated in my parents case), as others have said.
I solved the same problem on my dishwasher.
It was the float that monitors water depth. It had become so munged-up with
caked detergent that it wouldn't move.
Yours should pull straight up and you can then remove the nastiness.
