Leaking PVC Elbow

When the dishwasher drains where the PVC pipe connects to the elbow, it is leaking and is held together with some type of glue and water is spurting out. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

If it is a glued (solvent welding is the technical term) fitting then the proper fix is to cut out the fitting and redo it.

A better description and some pictures would help someone be able to give you a better answer.
