Re: dish washer door leaks
This sounds like a case of the water rising too high in the machine. If your unit has a float to control the water level (located in the wash area), it is likely stuck. Free it by letting water into the machine and then exercising it to get the 'goo' out. If it has a pressure switch located in the motor area, clean out the line.

Check the seal on the door. If the water is hard it will get get gunk build up. Easy fix or at least the first thing I would do. Is clean seal with Vinegar and old toothbrush. I've had this problem in the past before I got a Water softener. And I would recommend running a quick Cycle with one cup of vinegar every other week to keep the washer nice and clean of build up. You'll also notice your dishes will have a lot less spots.
You should check the water outlet - probably discharges into your sink through a garbage disposal - the water outlet is likely plugged and water can not discharge down the sink. You can remove the hose and clean it out.
does it leak all the time or did it just start?try running it with nothing in it and see if it leaks,if the dishes were racked wrong the water can get deflected and leak out through the door,also,remove the bottom rack,look at the screws going around the bottom part under the wash arm,if any of those are loose it causes a wave in the dish washer and the water leaks from under the door.if it's leaking from one of the corners the gasket could be bad
This sounds like excess soap or not enough water. You may also have really hard water. Turn on machine wait until it starts running see how much water is inside. there should be a 1/2 to 1" +/- in the bottom but not enough that the wash arm would be touching and not enough that the door would be leaking when you open it. This could also be a circulation problem set wash arms a certain way and observe that they have moved when you open after running for a minute or 2. Please let me know if I can do anything else to help.
One possible solution to your problem could be as follows... Could have been little regular soap or something put in that made it suds up causing it to leak out of the front and sometimes not to drain all water out. Pouring vegetable oil into the dish washer tub will remove the suds. After running vegetable oil for about 5 minutes, pour 2 cups of vinegar in to the tub and run it on the hottest longest cycle with no dishes in it. This will clean the residue out and what ever "gunk" may be in the internal parts. Use Only powder detergent. No gel and No tabs. These 2 cause a build-up over a period of time of use and reduce the performance of your machine. This should take care of your problem. Also could have a bad door seal. Check for any tares in the gasket.
The first thing you should do is clean the level probes in the unit. There are two probes sticking through the back of the unit and the water completes a circuit between these two telling the machine when it is full. If they are clean, you may have a faulty sensor or wiring.
Look for a blue or green streak on the door panel when you upen it to load the dishes. Does the washer sound different during the wash than it used to? If so your dispenser is leaking. This will also cause the water to suds up and not wash as well as it should. Start the washer with no detergent or dishes and let it run for 5 minutes, then open the door and see if there are a lot of suds in the water. Post back to let me know what you find.
