Question about Danby DDW496W Free-Standing Dishwasher
If you don't mind rigging it. I took the door apart, drilled out the little plastic stand-offs on the clear plastic window, and put some cabinet knob screws with flat rubber washers all the way around the window. I took the door apart and basically replaced the plastic standoffs around the window with the knob screws. Once I tightened them all down (kind of a pain in the ****, I think there were about 20+ screws and nuts) with the gasket on the window in place, there were no leaks. I also put some silicone caulk around the outside of the window (for good measure). It looks kind of rigged, but it worked and it only cost me about $10.00 in materials and about 2 hours in time. I'm not sure how long it will last, but it looks pretty sturdy (almost sturdier than it did new).

Common problem on these...
I had the same thing happen to mine and I just contacted AP Wagner (http://www.apwagner.com/)
1-888-279-2463 (in the USA) and they located and sent me the replacement part for it. The window does not come separate, you have to buy the inside panel for the door as an assembly.
