"Need to check the screws under the lower spray arm. Sometimes these come loose and the gasket becomes disloged spraying excess water on the door causing it to leak."
After reading this I checked-and yes, this was my problem. Romoving the bottom spray arm (big plastic wing nut) -removing the (loose) screws around the bottom spray arm, reseating the black gasket and returning the screws-solved my door leak problem on my Kenmore 665. I removed and inspected the door vent and it appeared to be working normally. Note the door vent can be removed from the inside by turning counter-clockwise.
If it comes out 'foamy' then liquid dish soap is getting introduced into the dishwasher. Liquid dish soap is different than automatic dishwasher detergent. liquid dish soap needs to be COMPLETELY rinsed from anything that has been pre-soaked prior to putting in the dishwasher. after a couple of regular cycles the foam will go away. Nowadays liquid dish soap is also 'concentrated' or 'ultra concentrated' which doesn't help. hope this helps.

http://lgdishwasher.yolasite.com/ MINE JUST STARTED AGAIN TODAY. SWOLLEN BOTTOM DOOR GASKET LOOKS LIKE HILLS UP AND DOWN. ALLOWING WATER TO OVER FLOW DOOR BOTTOM. GETS TRAPPED BEHIND GASKET. PAN HAS LITTLE WATER WHEN YOU OPEN DOOR. BUT CAN SEE RUN OUT OVER EDGE WHEN RUNNING WITHOUT OUTER DOOR SKIN, ALSO LEAKS AT TOP CORNERS DUE TO DEFORMED CORNER GASKET. THEY SHOULD HAVE MADE THE GASKET ROUND IN CORNERS TO KEEP IT SEALING, HAD TO MAKE C METAL CLIPS 4 INCHES LONG TO HOLD BOTTOM GASKET TIGHT TO BOTTOM PAN, USED 4 CLIPS AND TWO SMALLER AT ENDS
if it is leaking around/under the door, it must be the seal around the
door. Check to see if the seal needs to be pushed in somewhere or is
damaged.. Try running the cycle with no dishes in the washer and see
if it leaks, it sounds like a gasket in the door to me and you can also
check hose by removing the front panel on floor and check there....
Inspect the door gasket. As it ages, the gasket can crack or become hard, preventing it from sealing completely. If
the gasket appears solid, adjust the door latch so the door seals
tightly. Loosen the screw that holds the door latch to the cabinet.
Push the latch in slightly and re tighten the screw. Test the door and
readjust the latch if necessary. Replace the gasket if water
continues to leak after you've tightened the latch. Most gaskets are
held by compression in a groove on the door or on the dishwasher
So you are saying it leaks from the front ??
It would seem that the door gasket has a hole in it or the outlet hose has split.
Take a torch and look at the bottom folds of the door gasket to see if there is a split in it.
Switch off the power first!!!!then
If not there bring the machine forward, tip it back against the wall (Put something underneath it in case it falls on you ) and use you torch to see where the water is coming from
Remove the front access panel (see step 1, "Tightening the fittings"). This will give you access to the dishwasher's adjustable feet.
Open the door completely and remove the bottom dish rack.
Unscrew the dishwasher from the kitchen countertop so the dishwasher can move freely as you adjust the feet.
Check to see if the dishwasher is level side to side. Place a small level inside the dishwasher so it's sitting on the bottom pan and facing parallel to the front lip of the dishwasher. If the dishwasher is not level, use adjustable pliers to turn one of the dishwasher's front feet up or down until you hit level.
Check to see if the dishwasher is level front to back. Turn the level perpendicular to the door, and place it on one of the bottom ledges that run along the side of the cabinet. Check the level again. If the dishwasher isn't level, use your adjustable pliers to turn the back feet up or down until you hit level.
Reattach the dishwasher to the countertop and reinstall the front access panel.
Fixing a leaking door
Inspect the door gasket. As it ages, the gasket can crack or become hard, preventing it from sealing completely.
If the gasket appears solid, adjust the door latch so the door seals tightly. Loosen the screw that holds the door latch to the cabinet. Push the latch in slightly and retighten the screw. Test the door and readjust the latch if necessary.
Replace the gasket if water continues to leak after you've tightened the latch. Most gaskets are held by compression in a groove on the door or on the dishwasher cabinet.
Pull the old gasket out of its groove, using adjustable pliers (see illustration). Take the gasket to an appliance store to get a replacement.
Soak the new gasket in warm water to soften it, then press it into the groove. Start at the top, then work your way down the sides and across the bottom.
