Question about Whirlpool Gold 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher
Water splashing over tub into door panel. It leaks with or without being loaded with dishes. I checked the lower wash arm but found no visable cracks or breaks. The leaking water is clear not soapy. Please advise I have the same problem with my Whirlpool Gold GU94... dishwasher. I removed the front cover so I could see the bottom front edge of the tube and ran the rinse cycle with no dishes or soap. I see the water fill to its normal level (no where near the over fill point) and then the wash arms start as normal. I can see where the water gets pushed up over the lip of the tub and then drips on the floor as the lower wash arm passes by the front door. The washer fully drains as it should normally. This is the area where the front door inner cover overlaps down into the main tub. Its been working fine for nine years... now this...

Welcome to fixya.
You said, water splashing over tub into door panel. It leaks with or without being loaded with dishes.
You checked the lower wash arm but found no visible cracks or breaks. The leaking water is clear not soapy.
What is the brand and model number?
And how old is it???
There are a couple reasons water may be leaking out the door of a dishwasher.
1. The water is most likely coming out the bottom of the door where there is no rubber seal.
2. The rubber seal is around the door jam on top and both sides and not on the bottom. This means if the dishwasher has to much detergent in it the soap suds push only the water higher than the front edge of the wash basin and out the bottom of the door where there is no seal!
3. Fill only the soap cup that can close for the secondary wash. The open cup is a pre-wash and mostly not needed unless the food is baked on.This just wastes money to fill both of them every time.
4. And if you are using liquid detergent you only need half the amount from the powdered soap!
try less soap. Remember to much soap too can cause the water overflow.
5. And the last would be that the drain is clogged and caused a back up large or small and then the overflow!
is there water in the bottom when the wash is done?
Soap is usually the culprit, not that there can't be a leak in an old drain or water supply hose!
Go with the soap idea first!
Let me know how you are!
How old is the washer ?

Here is an interesting report I just read!!!!!!!!!!
Repair or replace?
When to pull the plug on your old washer
Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.
Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your washer,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.
Follow these guidelines:
When a repair makes sense.
If your washer is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that washers under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.
When a repair might be a wise choice.
If your washer is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.
When it pays to replace.
The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new washer.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive washer
eight or more years old.
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of washers you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

Test by restarting the cycle and see if water drains if it does not then there is either a blockege in the pipe ,pump,or in the machine where the water passes out normally through a filter if you have checked and cleaned out filter and drain pipe and there is still no draining then listen to the pump if you can hear a humming niose then there is something in the pump itself and you need to take it out and inspect the impelar houseing remove what ever is there put back and enjoy if there is no noise and pump is clean then it is proberly fualty and nedd replaceing.

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

Water is being forced out under the bottom door seal. Is the lower spray arm melted on the bottom? Or is there something directing the water flow toward the bottom of the tub instead of up toward the dishes?
