Hello...I have an old dishwasher, model leaks and the soap timer is broken. My question is two parts; how old is this model, and is it worth fixing? Thanks, Bob

Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Hi Bryan,

The serial # XXXXX A1666636HQ

okay this was made in Nov. 1993, do you know where the leak is? can you tell where its comming from?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Water is comming from underneath...sometimes insulation falls out comes out with it.

The green accept button will appear when we are finished? I dont see it yet.

yes the green accept button will be there, do you think you can remove the front access panel under the door to get a look?
this being 18 years old it may not be worth repairing , a lot of things start to go on these after that many years so fixing it may be a waste of money, if you can tell where the leak is I will try and see what it may be, thanks Bryan
