Does it leak after it is filled? While running? Center would be pump body, gasket or drain line. If only on filling and no other time is is fill line, possibly fill solenoid.

Hole in bottom, drain hose or pump body has a hole in it. You will need to pull the unit out and look.

Well Tableclocks we will need a lot of input to help you, since you will have to pinpoint the site of the leak. If it's sleaking at the top from the buttons when its on, the REPAIRCLINIC site suggests the arm assembly is cracked or loose spraying water to the top of the dishwasher. But if you can get a puddle from pouring water into it when its off, then you may have a faulty sealor other problems.

Go through these sites and get back with us becaue we can't see or check anything only you can.

Interesting follow up. Rodents are notorious for chewing things. A: Friend found a Beaver had chewed through the rubber diaphragm on his older boat outdrive, sank the boat. B: Couple of years ago, son bought a house and inspection stated large leak in DW. After closing, pulled the DW and found a rat had chewed through the top of the DW when the house was vacant for 9 months. I shaped a piece of aluminum, epoxied it over the hole, pop riveted it on and DW still runs fine. Saved a couple hundred . C: Squirrel climbed onto the engine of my dad's LTD. Chewed plug wires, fuel line and other wires. PIA!! I use a Winchester .177 air powered SBCD (selective birth control device).
