I think I solved the door leaking problem by cleaning out the plastic filter screen on the inside (left) door panel. Didn't even know it was there, never knew it was suppose to be cleaned! It was so clogged and gross. I also discovered that my washer had shifted and was off balance. It has wood shims under the steel casing and one block was loose. No doubt from slamming and banging the door open and closed. Had to take the front skirt and kickplate off to see. I had my son use a lever and hoisted it up a little while I replaced the block shim now making the washer level again. Ran a light wash before fixing problems and it leaked. We ran a light wash after the fix's and so far so good. Haven't ran a regular longer wash yet. My water level was fine, no gasket problems, no washer wand cracks, etc... My husband was thrilled! When he came home, I informed him I have good news and not so good news. The not so good news was dinner was going to be late, the good news was I fixed the leaking (for months!)dishwasher and saved alot of money on repairs!
**Cleaned filter screen, made dishwasher level again.

I have a whirlpool quiet partner II and for some reason it does not drain the water out any more and I cannot figure out why....people say that it is the filter but that is unbelievably hard to get to and I cannot find any instructions online or paper work that tells how to break it down. If anyone has any insight please let me know

SOURCE: clean light is flashing
This can be a common issue with some Whirlpool manufactured dishwashers. This information may help in your situation. The following link explains how you may be able to clear the blinking clean light problem:
Now, keep in mind all dish washers are not alike and have different panel options. If you do not have the same set up that I have mentioned, the tech sheet for your dishwasher will explain the touch pad functions. The tech sheet is located behind the lower toe panel under the door and lists the proper sequence of buttons to push for diagnostics and troubleshooting.
NOTE: Sometimes the tech sheet is located behind the inner door panel. You will need to remove the screws securing the inner panel to access it if this is the case. Make sure you turn off the main power breaker before doing so.
Sometimes this can be a momentary glitch in operation. However, if the problem keeps reoccuring the number of flashes is an indication of which circuit is causing your problem. Again, refer to your tech sheet to determine this.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you solve your problem.

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.
