I have a Kenmore built in dishwasher and it started to leak into the basement. I think the seal may be bad.

I cannot afford to buy a new one so do you have any tips for me to possibly fix it myself.

Thanks

** Kenmore built in dishwasher **

I'm afraid that is not enough information to identify the appliance in question. What is needed is its exact model number.

You can find tips for locating the model and serial number identification tag on your appliances at the following link:

** I think the seal may be bad. **

It's of little use guessing. Someone is going to actually have to get in there and find out *for sure* and if it is a seal problem, determine which one (door seal, pump seal, dispenser seal, etc.) although it could be any number of other things as well.

That model number is incomplete or incorrect. It is at least missing the 3-digit model number prefix which indicates whom built it for Sears. We'd need that in addition to the rest of the model number to look it up to see what machine design you're dealing with.

But someone actually looking into it to try to pinpoint the origin of the leak is also going to be needed before anyone will be able to suggest a course of action.
