It depends on what kind of test he was doing. He was probably checking the amp draw which checks how much power the whole machine was pulling. This would be the way to check the problem you have as long as he checked it with everything running, motor, heater,..etc. If you find the amp draw to be too high, then you go to individual components.

check the rubber seal around the door to see if its torn or smashed. if it is replace it, could someone have set somthing heavy on the door while it was open that would have stressed the hinges. it is most likely one of these problems take a nail file and slid it gently between the door and the body of the dishwasher if it slides in easy where it leaks you know the seal is bad and replace it.

SOURCE: Drain Hose Replacement
drain hoses are quite standard. the rubber spigot at each end can be different sizes and some have a right angle bend at the end. suggest you take out the old hose and take it along to match up - easiest way

SOURCE: leaking dishwasher
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 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:
1. Lower rack
2. Spray arm
3. Spray arm support
4. Wash/drain impellers
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.
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.

The salt tank is a pathetic piece of ****. The plastic cracks and leaks into the bottom tray, which in turn sets off the safety switch.
Follow the attaching hoses and bypass the salt tank unless you really need it. This will save you around $250 for a salt tank and $300 labour for callout and repair.
