My dishwasher has a slight water leak. I thought it was a loose outlet fitting but on closer inspection, three of the vibration isolators on the motor mounts are wet and have occasional drips to the floor and ultimately to the basement. Is the motor gasket the likely suspect? If so, are there other parts that need to be replaced at the same time? What is the procedure for this project? Is there a repair manual available? Thanks, Dick

Richard for Model Number 665-1581592

ANSWER Richard, There are a couple of things to check, if you haven't yet. Make sure there is at least 1/4 inch clearance between the bottom of the motor assembly and the floor. check and tighten the four mounting supports 3367197 so the pump seal tightens and may stop the leak. We could supply a basic service manual from the manufacturer, but We'd need a proper email address, and for your specific model number, you'd need to contact Sears/Kenmore Service and purchase a manual from them. Good Luck and Thanks
