SOURCE: Leaking dishwasher
Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.
The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:
Spray arm support
Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.
Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.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 the dishwasher, and replace the valve.
Hoses--Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

Hello, With the right technique it isn't too bad, but it does require removing it from the cabinet/cupboard. This is what I do. FIRST**Turn off the power at the main service panel or unplug the unit.** Shut off the water and undo the water supply and drain hose. Remove as much water from the sump well as possible because you'll need to lye the dishwasher on its front ( remove any dishes inside and also get some towels or a blanket to lay it on so you don't damage the front panel or control's ). Once you have the unit out and face down, you'll see the back of the circulation motor&pump assembly...this is where it gets a little tricky, but I've done plenty and will guide you through. The clamps holding the pump hoses in place are "one time" clamps so once removed they'll need to be replaced with narrow "worm gear" clamps when installing the new pump assy. Undo the wires at the side of the motor ( A good idea would be to take a picture or draw a diagram, the picture is likely better...in my case at least ). Hopefully from here you will get the new one in. Let me know how you make out, I'll watch your post. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

I have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that will help you with the online buying...
