Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS25 Built-in Dishwasher
I had my dishwasher leaking alot at the bottom of the doo,r and found out that the steam vent was very cloged with gunk. After taking the vent cover off on the inside of the door and cleaning, then putting the vent cover back on NO MORE leaking. This drove me crazy for along time before I found this fix.

Br, couple of things you can look for here. Check the vent, you can just pop this out. Sometimes there is a buildup of gunk which will hold water during wash and leak down between the door. There is a seal there, part number 974782. Another thing is to check the upper spray arm for cracks or splitting. This can send a direct flow of water into the vent. There is also a seal at the bottom of the upper spray arm, part number 3376846. I was fooled by a leak like this once, it turned out to be a clogged vent...Catriver..post back.

Check the screws on the pump cover under the lower spray arm (the spray arm is easy to remove, the screws are torx - maybe a torx 10 or 15, so a regular screwdriver wont work). They come loose on ours every 6-12 months and spray water at the door, causing it to leak all over our wood floor. I routinely tighten those screws now before they come loose enough to cause the problem.
Replacing the door seal doesn't help - if you look at it closely the bottom of the door doesn't seal against anything, it just overlaps the front of the tub so water sprayed hard against the front (from a leaking gasket) can go under the door and up and over the tub front, making it look like a door seal problem.
