try adjusting the feet at the front of your dishwasher so it leans back slightly to keep the water towards the back of the washer

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.
The d/w was a recent purchase?
Then my advise to you is don't worry about it! The unit should be under warranty. It's time to make the call. Let the warranty repairman worry about it. If he can't fix it, he has the authority to condemn it and you'll get a new one. Anyway, this is one problem you should not have to worry about.

If your dishwasher leaks, check these:
Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Main tub seal Note…If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath thecenter bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probablyapply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn'tserviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.
Themain tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water inthe dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get tothe seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:
Door gasket or seal Overtime, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to sealproperly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them ifthey've begun to leak.
Water-inlet valve Thewater-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply linefrom the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the insideof the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these asnecessary.
The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open.When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher,which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to thedishwasher, and replace the valve.
Hoses Behindthe lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastichoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If thatdoesn't work, replace the hose.

Because this is an LG 8511, it has a Hybrid Drying System that is completely in the door panel. Normaly, when the (dry) air exits this dishwasher, it leaves via a port at the bottom of the door. That system is clearly broken on your unit.
Water is almost certainly entering the internal port in the door that normally only allows moist air. Due to the wiring and other stuff in the door panel that is at risk, it is important to get this unit serviced soon.
Hope that helps. If you have more questions on this topic, please reply.

SOURCE: leaking water from front of door
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.
