Question about KitchenAid Architect? II S SERIES KUDS03FT Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
This sounds like a hinge problem to start with.
Test the seal by dragging a strip of paper through it with door closed. Probably that left hinge isn't holding door close enough which was probably the original cause. As seal dries out a bit then will leak.
At this point I would investigate the hinge possibility AND if possible a DIY fix. It may be loose mounting screws or take a little shim to hold the left corner tighter. I would not waste money for a service call.
You probably might need to release the door balance springs accessable under the toe kick area while working on the door. Possibly a hinge is bent.
You might do as they do in the auto industry when a door doesn't fit... basically put forces on it to bend it a bit. In your case it would be to distribute the load and support the door when horizontal about 6 inches out from the left hinge and then bend the end of the door down to bend the hinge mounts slightly..
Then check the seal clearance with the strip of paper as you do with a refigerator seal by cloosing on a strip of paper and dragging the strip to see if it is gripped.
