1-if it is brand new it should be under warranty 2-try changing soap brand, some suds up more than others and sneak past the seals 3- where is it leaking? (around the door, or underneath ie likely motor seal or plumbing) 4- check Plumbing connections 5-most "tubs" nowadays are one piece plastic, look it over carefully with a good flashlight. if you think you have found a crack remember where it is start the dishwasher and run it till it starts leaking and then open it and examine that spot-with the heat it may open up more or otherwise change
One (or possibly both) of your door seals needsreplacing. It's more likely to be the lower door seal as these usually go first. This seal isn't visible like the goalpost seal that runs around the sides and top of the wash compartment. If you open the door, you can feel this rubber seal when you run your fingers along the bottom of the door on the inside. Be careful though, as there is often a build up of dirt down there!
I don't advise buying any parts until you are certain of where the leak is coming from. Identifying the source of the leak (and therefore which seal to replace) is relatively easy but the best way is to run a wash cycle with the front panel of the door removed. It's quite easy to remove, but you might need a T20 T-Star screwdriver to remove it. Sorry, I can't remember exactly what the fixings are on this model.
A simpler - but not always accurate method - is to check by look and feel. If the water seems to be coming from the sides of the door panel at the bottom when you run a wash cycle, it's the "goalpost" seal that needs replacing. These are easy to obtain and replace - they simply push into a slot.
To test the bottom door seal, run any wash cycle and, when it's finished, stand to the side of the washer and open the door. There is a white plastic panel under the door. Have a feel around on top of this. If it's wet you probably need a new lower door seal. These are much harder to replace as it involves removing the door panel and partially releasing the hinges. I don't recommend this as a DIY fix unless you are competent, confident and have good instructions - i.e a service manual!
Whichever seal you need, they cost around $30 / £20 each.

If this leak is coming from the front door, replace the door and drum seal. If this leak is coming from the bottom or rear bottom area, this will be a loose drain hose or, faulty inlet water valve assembly connection.
The first thing to check is door gasket< bad corners,gap in side,bottom or top. Close door on a dollar bill and try to slide it top to bottom side to side and if it slides fairly easy then seal is not doing good. If you find dirty area clean it off along with the cabinet side as well.If you find the side is leaking then heat gasket with hair dryer and apply vasoline to gasket to help it move freely. If you find tear or hole then replace it.
If the unit leaks during use with a constant drip from the 6 o'clock location between the seal and the glass on the door the solution is to change tha door seal. it is quite difficult to do I would recommend you call a local service company.
