When the dishwasher is operating there are leaks on the left side of the door. The door does not seem to close completely. On the upper right side the door is tight, but not on the upper left, here you can push the door another 1/2 inch to make a tight closure. But as you release the pressure on the upper left it slacks off by itself.

Re: leaking problem from the door
Hi there, dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, check these:
Main tub seal Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.
The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:
* Lower rack *Spray arm * Spray arm support * Wash/drain impellers
Then try the seal out of its housing and replace it.
Door gasket or seal Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.
Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.
The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.
Hoses Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

A leaking dishwasher can be caused by excessive soapsuds. Excessive soapsuds are the most common reason dishwashers leak. Excessive soapsuds will cause dishwashers to leak from the door. Good dishwasher detergent will have no more than half inch of suds on top of the water. So any time your dishwasher is leaking from the door open the door, if there is more than a half inch of suds your problem is in your soap. One drop of hand soap, hand dish washing soap, or any other soap will cause dishwashers to leak. Now, I am not suggesting that you intentionally put this soap in the dishwasher because if you did the soapsuds would be from top-to-bottom of your dishwasher. Now if there are a lot of suds you can fix it by pouring vinegar or cold water into the dishwasher and running it, this will kill the subs.
I have the same problem with my dishwasher. I have replaced the door seal and it still leaks. It seems like the channel where the seal fits is just a little too deep for the seal. As a temporary fix, I pull the door seal out of the channel about 3/8 inch on the side that leaks before closing the door to run the dishwasher. When the door closes, it pushes against the seal and that seems to work for me. A more permanent solution would to be to add about a 1/8 inch filler gasket into the channel then put the door seal back. That way the seal will press on the the gasket instead of bottoming out into the channel. Hope this helps you.
If the door is sprung in a manner that one side is flush and not other then most likely the hinge has been bent outward by the weight placed on it.the best solution would be to replace hinge,the spring only adjusts the tension for door closing. There is a slight possibility that either the frame or the door has bent in this manner so before buying hinge check frame and door for damage,after doing repair would suggest adjusting front legs of unit to raise front up a bit to ensure leaking wont continue
This dishwasher has a vent at the bottom left of the door that blows out hot moist air during the drying cycle. Are you sure that you are not getting condensation build up from this vented air that is dripping on your floor?
hi,Check your spray arm that nothing got stuck in its holes. make sure the
spray arm is turning all the time when using the machine :
put the spray arm in 90 degree position, turn the unit on , open the door after few min check that the spray arm move...
make sure your seal of the door is clean and nothing prevent it to close evenly the door...
good luck 911servicetoday . com
