Dishwasher leaks from both sides at bottom of door. Replaced with new gasket. Has been run for a few cycles and continues to leak. If I push door in with slight pressure the leak seems to stop. The latch will catch and strike plate seems to be in order. Any other suggestions for repair?
Thanks,
John

Hi John,

When you ordered the new door gasket it should of come with a new door strike, did you install it as well? If not, you will need to.

Here's the door gasket kit for your model which includes the new door strike:
W10542314 Gasket and Strike Kit

Thanks for your help. Seems as if the additional parts will exceed the value of the 14 year old dishwasher. I will look into a replacement.

Yes John, I agree, its best to go dishwasher shopping. We recommend another Kenmore 665 which is made by Whirlpool, or the Whirlpool brand itself. Also Maytag and KitchenAid and Amana are all good.
