If it is an offline model you should be able to turn it upside down while pump is running and see the leak.

Water is leaking from the pipe on the top of the tank (Reliance 606 electric) where the hot water comes out and goes into the house. Likely causes?

If tank is rusted out, then that is caused by depleted anode rod, or tank that is not electrically grounded on hot side pipe.
If pipe nipple is rusted out, then that can be caused by improper connection between copper and galvanized pipes, and caused by non-grounded hot water pipes.

If tank is leaking, replace it.
If nipple is leaking, remove with pipe wrench, apply teflon tape or joint compound on threads, and install new nipple. Replace anode rod if possible. Correct copper-galvanized connections. Add ground wire between hot and cold pipes.

I unclogged the GD by removing the pipes underneath and replaced them tightly. GD seems to be working fine now, but water is slowly leaking from underneath the GD! It appears to be leaking from the...

The leak comes from above where water comes out.

Turn off power before touching wet electrical appliance.

Put stopper in disposal.
Fill sink with water.
Check if water is getting through the putty seal at sink connection.

Next, check if water leaks only when dishwasher runs. Dishwasher drains into garbage disposal.

Last, check tailpiece where it attaches to side of garbage disposal. The tailpiece is usually sealed with a rubber washer. When washer is old, it gets deformed, and then it doesn't seal perfectly when put back.

I use rectorseal on all tubular pipe joints under the sink.
Works on both plastic and rubber washers.
It is gooey and sticky.
Brush it all over the washer, use plenty, then assemble pipes.
The rectorseal assures that joint will not leak.

Hoptpoint WD64 appears to be leaking. Puddle appears an hour or two after cycle completes as expected. Any ideas why / any maintenance I can undertake to resolve?

If leak is occuring after wash is finished I would suspect a leaking outlet pipe joint around the pump as water will still be present in that area. If it is a leaking joint it may just need tightening, but to help it, only if you wish to, disassemble the joint and apply some instant gasket, type used in automotive assembly, and reassemble the joint and tighten. DON'T USE SILICONE SEALER as you may want to get the joint apart at a future date.

My Daewoo DSB 091L unit has started to drip condensate from the casing joint underneath the front drainage tray. I have cleaned the blocked drain pipe and proved the water drains away. The condensate drip...

Make sure that the flexible pipe is securely connected to the drainpan, it can come adrift and cause leaking. The way to check this is to make sure everything is dried out completely. Then open the front grill and carefully pour water so that it goes only into the drip pan. Pour slowly so that you do not overflow the pan. If water is coming out on the outside and you have no leaks on the inside, then you can rule out the perished or disconnected drainpipe theory. In this case your unit may be short of refrigerant causing excessive run time and a freeze up of the evaporator.
