Question about Whirlpool 24 in. DU1100XTP Built-in Dishwasher
Mine also started leaking. Element also too hot. Mine has a 20 year warrenty on the tub (which I was NOT aware of) Repairman came today and the whole tub unit and element will be fixed for free! Look in your whirlpool instruction book to see if yours is warrentied. BTW, my dishwasher is only three years old.

I've had the exact same problem with our Kenmore Quiet Guard 3, which apparently was manufactured by Whirlpool. The small hole is even in the same spot as described in the Whirlpool service bulletin (figure 13):
I removed the four screws holding the metal bracket underneath, sealed the hole with silicon, and replaced the three screws that were still functional (the one was stuck in the plastic piece that had broken off.) So far so good... One week later and no leaks so far.

Just had a repairman look at my 2.5 year old Whirlpool for this exact same problem. The hole IS covered under warranty BUT labor is not. The rate they charge is $100/hr and he said it would likely take all of that if not more. The reorder of this part would take 7 10 days and will cost upwards of $200 so you have to ask yourself is it worth it to spend 150-200 on a 3 year old dishwasher or go buy a new one (same model) for $400.

Yes, the loctite has worked for me!

I have the same model Whirlpool dishwasher with the exact same water leak problem -- a small hole in the tub bottom, under the element, and directly above a screw on the tub underside. Scanning the web, I discovered a recall titled "Whirlpool & Inglis Plastic Tall-Tub Didhwasher Heater Rework #R17365" which shows that our dishwashers should have a round element instead of an angular one and, somhow, a small hole can occur due to this wrong element. See Figure 13 of the recall. This repair will be covered free of charge by Whirpool.

Try the Loctite N27 steel quickest. Good luck!

I have the same hole problem on my 3 y/o Kenmore washer. What a crappy design flaw! I am ready to try any epoxy before I have to throw out an expensive dishwasher.
Any success stories with epoxy or heat resistant rubberized compounds...?
