Question about GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher
I had the same exact problem TWICE....second time I'm replacing the dishwasher. There are two rubber boots at the bottom of the door that just sit and the door seal is supposed to seat into these rubber boots but if you take out the boot you will see that it is misshapen and therefore leaking. These boots cost about $10 dollars apiece from GE on line. I replaced them once and same problem. I was going to replace the gasket that runs around the door but it costs $50 and I'm not SURE it will fix the problem. I'm on my way right now to buy a new dishwasher....they're not that expensive compared to pumping money into something that you don't know if it will work. Good Luck.

SOURCE: leaks from door seal
The best way to place a dishwasher in "unused" mode (when not being used, that is) is to park the door slightly open. This assures that the seal is not constantly crushed and takes a form that is too relaxed when it IS being used. . Unless there are extenuating siturations (like a rip in the seal, the machine filling too much, etc.), You might have to have the door seal replaced. You could try taking a very powerful hair dryer and heating the seal while you pull on it to make it take a better form with some spring, but often this doesn't help much. Give it a try, and park your door open a smidge when the machine is not being used. (Just have it unlached.) . Make sure your machine isn't filling too much. Sometimes the little float device (if equipped) is stuck. Reach down and diddle with this round float thing and make sure it is able to go up and down.
