Question about Maytag Dishwashers
MDBTT60AWW2 - After about 50-55 minutes into a Normal Wash a puddle forms on the front left side. Can't find exactly where the water is leaking from. Had to take off bottom panel to see where the puddle started. Have taken out the float located in the front right corner and thoroughly cleaned it. Thanks in advance!
Had a similar situation with my dishwasher. Turned out there was some hard water build up on the rubber gasket. I would start there first. I would not use any harsh chemicals on it, (it may jeopardize the gasket) it usually flakes off. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: leaking water
dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, check these:
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,
* Lower rack
* Spray arm support
* Wash/drain impellers
Then try 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.

just an idea...if i'm understanding you correctly,could the door seal be creased there or folded over by use and age to permit this to happen? cause you said nothing is missing

Check the door gasket for uniform seating. Align it. If this does not solve the problem, contact the service provider. He may change the gasket or do the corrective action.
