Kenmore dishwasher leaking
« on: February 22, 2012, 03:19:04 PM »

I have a KM Elite DW model# 665.16582200
A while back I had to replace the motor/pump. That went ok but it seemed to not be getting enough water cause it was pumping some air when washing. I had read maybe the valve had sediment in it so I cleaned it out and is washing good now. Run it several times with the front off to be sure I had no leaks-had none. The other night it was running and water was coming out from under it. I took the front panel off and watched. When it starts filling up water is running down the side of the DW--only during fill. I later pulled it out thinking maybe the line going to the inlet on the side of the DW might be bad but everything looks fine. I cant figure it out and the lines arent long enough to pull it out enough to see and let it go through a fill cycle to see exactly where the water is coming from. Do those "injectors" the parts book calls it that, just go bad? The way it is made you really cant see inside of it.
Before I order any parts would appreciate any ideas of what might be causing this?
