Whirlpool dishwasher Leaking water

I have an old whirlpool dishwasher (bought in 1987) and it is leaking water. I don't really know where the water is coming from. Is it worth fixing?

Hello there:
Troubleshooting Leaks
If the dishwasher leaks, and you know the problem is not related to tub overfilling, the pump, or inlet valve problems, the plumbing connections may be faulty. Most dishwashers are connected to the water supply with metal pipe fittings, and the leak could be at these fittings. If the fittings are threaded, tighten them with an adjustable wrench. If this doesn't work, chances are the threads are stripped or the fitting is cracked or otherwise damaged. In this case, replace the fitting.
Most dishwashers discharge used water through a pipe or a hose connected to the drain or garbage disposer under the kitchen sink. If the drain line is made of flexible hosing, it may have cracked from prolonged exposure to hot water. Examine the hose; if it's damaged, replace it. If the hose is leaking at its connections with the disposer or dishwasher, tighten the fittings or clamps at the connections, or replace the clamps. Also check for water leaks around inlet valves, drain valves, and anywhere you see flexible hoses and hose connections. Leaks at clamps can be stopped by tightening or replacing the clamps. Leaks in hoses can be eliminated by replacing the hoses.
I HOPE THAT YOU FIND THIS INFORMATION VERY HELPFUL

I would look at the door seal being a problem as well. if the water level float were leaking, it would be worse then just a little water. The door seal is always the first to go. these seal can be replaced by pulling the old one off and pushing the new one back in place. should be able to buy new seal from the people the unit can be bought from.
