The problem could be very well worth your while to repair. Many of these appliances have a life expectancy of 15 to 20 years if maintained well. This problem sounds like it could be caused by a worn door seal. Over time, these seals compress to the point where they no longer seal correctly, or food particles and grime get caught between the inner door and seal and leave small air gaps.

The following link explains some of the common causes of dishwasher leaks and what you can do to prevent them:

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites are reputable and have great service. Prices vary between them, so shop and compare. The first three sites I have listed include helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you in locating and properly identifying any parts you may need.

This is a very simple repair that you can perform yourself without the assistance of a repairman, and it usually does not cost much. The average price of a door gasket ranges from $25 to $45 depending on model. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Rich,
At 15 years old you are probably going to find that parts will be limited in availability and expensive if they are available. With buttons not working, that sounds like probably a controller problem and that would be an expensive part. You would probably be better off putting your money into replacing the dishwasher. The average lifespan on a dishwasher is anywhere from 7 to 10 years, so you have your money's worth out of that unit. Hope this helps!

No problem with Filter.
Pressure switch is not working, it is not sensing the water level. There could be one more reason can cause this issue. Please check the Pressure HOSE whether is punchered or not.

My 6 year old Whirlpool dishwasher is loud


This is a bad wash pump. Looking at about $175 for just the sump assembly. You could do it yourself, but unit would need to be uninstalled.

Too much sink water causes flooding from dishwasher.


If you let it sit with vinegar and it worked after for a while that tells me it may be plugged up with grease. Might be worth while trying to clean it out with Drain O a drain cleaner. Make sure its washed clean after. Grease and dirt builds up after a while in all machines. If vinegar works might be worth cleaning more often.

Water leaking from bottom


Replace water pump. Common problem. Unscrew the control panel ,two screws on each end. Flip control panel over and unsnap gold brackets from base to the back. Lift up housing and disconnect lid switch, remove housing. The water pump is in the front lower that has two hoses , disconnect hoses and unsnap pump. My sister fixed hers in about 25 minutes.

Whirlpool Gold dishwasher


Either:
  1. not enough water gets into the dishwasher. check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
  2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
Good luck,

Not cleaning properly


Our Whirlpool Quiet Wash plus is 20+ years old and was on its way out the door because of erratic white residue, spotting, and film.  Nothing worked: vinegar, different soaps, more soap, less soap. Today I opened it up and started digging behind covers and checking the insides - multiple places were clogged with a soap/mineral film - ugly! I sprayed the insides with Restore 4 (a tile cleaner) and scraped and brushed and broke loose the hidden deposits. The only thing I didn't open was the sump pump - but now know how to do so. (thanks FixYa) Then I added about a 1/2 quart of vinegar and ran it full hot on the heavy wash cycle, added more vinegar between each cycle and let it dry.  It looks super inside - the gunk is gone.  I am now washing a load of glasses and am hoping for the best!

DEFROSTING/ WATER RUNNING ONTO FLOOR & INSIDE FRIDGE


Check to see if the run-off tube at the back is plugged.

I dont know how old the fridge is - but if it a couple years old check at the back or the fridge - there should be a tube running down the back of the fridge down into the bottom tray. This tube funnels water from the freezer (condensation, or water from the defrost) down onto the tray holding the compressor where it evaporates with help from the heat off the compressor. Sometimes this tube can get plugged up with some scum or mineral deposits, causing the built up water to drain from inside the fridge.

The tube shouldn't be too hard to remove and clean out with some hot water and pipe cleaners. Had the same issue on on a GE fridge last year.
Hope this helps!

Whirlpool Quiet Wash Plus Dishwasher is not despensing the detergent properly. After a wash cycle there is still some left.


My Whirlpool Quiet Wash plus dishwasher seems to have died. No power. None of the buttons work, it quiet mid-cycle. No breaker issue, my garbage disposal runs off same breaker and is working fine. Any ideas? I was thinking the comp. board that the buttons work off of is fried. If this is the case any idea how much to replace it? Would it be cheaper to buy a new dishwasher?
