SBW#9 – Leaking Kenmore Dishwasher

As I walked into my kitchen I noticed a trail of water from my dishwasher to my kitchen table. The last thing you need to deal with in the morning when you walk into your kitchen is a leaking dishwasher. That’s exactly what happened to me.

So I went to looking and feeling around and figured out the problem was not some leaking pipe but was instead the rubber impeller gasket had started to come out of the plastic channel it is in. How would something like this happen? Well, as it turns out I am assuming either vibration or by some other means one of the impeller housing screws had come out and another was loose.

Fixing it is not that hard of a job. All I had to do was remove the lower dish rack, unscrew the lower washer spinner and correct the issue with the impeller housing. In less than 30 minutes and my problem was solved.

So, if you have a problem like this, hopefully you will find this video handy and it can save you some money.
