Hello,

We have a Kenmore that has been leaking about 2 cups of water from the bottom front of the dishwasher for about a month. It leaks two times during a wash. 1) it starts leaking when the rinse cycle begins after filling with water and 2) it starts leaking when starting the wash cycle after filling. As a first step I replaced the door seal which had some cracks but this did not solve the problem and the dishwasher still leaks at the same times. I'm not sure what to replace or do next. Sears recommends replacing the water inlet value (I replaced this a few years ago), drain line, door latch, drain pump, heating elements, overfill float switch, the pump and motor assembly, the water inlet assembly and the door hinge. I'm hoping your experience will lead me to a more specific solution based on my evidence.

Thanks!
