Just about all dishwashers will leak a little around the door seal over time but should not leak to the point of wetting the floor. With the door open, check in the front of the tub, under the door. Lots of gunk? Clean this area out well plus take a soft damp rag and clean the door gasket while feeling for any damage. Then go along the mating surface of the door and look for any nicks. If it leaked all the time I would suspect the door hinges have been sprung. Hope this helps, Ken

The symptoms you describe, sounds like it could be caused by a worn door seal. Over time, these seals compress to the point where they no longer seal correctly, or food particles and grime get caught between the door and seal and leave small air gaps.
The following link explains some of the common causes of dishwasher leaks and what you can do to prevent them:
The part number for a replacement gasket for the model number you provided is 8268888.
This is a very simple repair. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please post back and let me know. hope this helps you.
