Some leaks actually are from the windshield and it is contained by the trim so you can't see where it is leaking from. If it is the door seal look at the striker bolt to see if there is any abnormal wear. Make sure the striker bolt is aligned with the door striker. If you don't know how to check this run by your local body shop and ask them to check it for you. Sometimes if the keys have ever been locked in the vehicle people use door shims to hold the door open as to pick the lock. This is bad because it knocks the door out of alignment with the seals. Hope this helps.
You won't notice the mold on other machines with black door seals because of the color. If your seal is gray, it is a normal thing. Chances are it really isn't mold, but a build up of crud. However in the off chance it is mold, spray the seal liberally with mildew remover, let sit and repeat until the mold is gone.
As for the leaking (assuming the leak is happening at the door), if it is a drip or two during the cycle, although it is not "normal" for this to happen, front loaders do often drip here and there. If you have more problems than a couple of drips, replace the seal.
Other leaks not at the door should be looked at. There aren't too many places it can really leak. It should be easy to find.
Check inside the door on the bellows gasket to make sure the inlet area (normally at the 10 o'clock position) is properly positioned around the water inlet, sometimes these work themselves off the inlet nozzle and can casue a leak when the washer is filling up.
Also, carefully run your hand around the bellows gasket to see if you can find any small holes that cold be letting water leak out. You'll need a flashlight to make this easier. It is hardly ever the hinges that causes a leak since the hinges are mounted outside of the door seal gasket (bellows gasket) and aren't ever exposed to the water.
This could be the rubber seal or the door lock. If the door lock is not pulling it tightly closed then it needs to be replaced. Check the seal really closely and make sure there are not cracks and it does not look deformed
I replaced the seal part # 154576501. The notch is on the right facing the dishwasher. Just pull it out and insert the new one.
I've fought this problem for over a year, thinking it was an adjustment. I am now running it through the third cycle and I am positive it fixed my leak. Also, while you have the cover off, check and trim the tie-wrap around the wire loom. Mine was interfereing with the seal, but the seal was also slightly distorted allowing the splash to come underneath.
Is the door seal dirty?
A dirty door seal can cause a leak. Remove and clean any dirt or deposits around the inner door seal with a damp cloth. The door glass seals against the rubber seal; dirt or deposits can prevent a proper seal and cause leaks.
