Kenmore Dishwasher HELP!!

I have a 3 year old Kenmore Dishwasher, bought brand new. Just recently we started having problems. What happens is we run it then after about 7 minutes (during washing I am guessing) water starts dripping from the left and right side. It looks like it is coming out between the door and the lower faceplate section. So if I let it continue after it is finished the dishes really aren't clean.

The only thing I can think of is about 3 weeks ago a glass broke and i couldn't find all the pieces, but I have run it since and it has worked fine. This just started this week.

Any ideas??

Thanks in advance!

If the glass got down into the impeller it has likely damage the impeller and that would cause the clean issue.

The leaking is could be cause by a blown outlet gasket seal, this would depend on the model.

When the dishwasher starts to leak open the door and see if the water is surging (moving back and forth ) in the tub.

The may be to much water.

Check to see if the float is moving freely.

With your model number you can get your dishwasher parts here.

Thank you for your response.

So I unscrewed the bottom arm and took it off to find this white ring on the bottom of it was cracked. Is this the seal you may be talking about? I can provide a picture if need be.

Also where on the dishwasher do I find the model #?
