Hello Justin, George didn't pick this one up for some reason but I can help you if you like?
Is the leak coming from the door seal or the bottom underneath the dishwasher?
Also how old is your dishwasher?
Hi Justin, yes that would be the front door seal that is leaking.
That seal will need to be replaced unfortunately. Its pretty easy to do and the new one will come with directions.
Of course I will stick with you and help you do this so it all goes smoothly.
The best place to order that new door seal is: http://www.espares.co.uk/
I would call them to order the new door seal, also mention to them that you would like a tube of the sealant for this seal;-)
Their phone # *****: 0844 9777 888.
In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.
Please rate my service kindly.
Also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you.

Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.
Thank you Justin;-)
Hi Justin, the reason I suspect the seal so strongly is two fold.
One I have been an appliance tech for over 30 years hands on everyday lol
And second its leaking above the floor not under the unit for what you told me.
What you can do to verify this, is using a good bright flashlight, aimed at the corner where you see water on lower part of the door, while its running look for the water dripping;-)
Im pretty sure that you will be able to see it there.
Unless you suspect the water is coming from under the unit as that is the only place it would leak if its not just coming out from under the dishwasher.
Hello Justin, it's George,
I am sorry I was away from the office on some rather urgent repairs and was out of broadband reach so did not get your message.
Yes, you can remove the front under-door base cover and the right hand side panel whilst still operating the appliance. Just ensure the appliance is switched off whilst you dismantle.
Let me know what you find
Good morning, Yes I suspect the door seal for sure. There really is no place else that water would appear that high on the unit if it weren't coming from a leaky door seal.
If the leak were down below that point, I would say its a good idea to check other components such as the sump or seals below the machine.
But in this case its a bad door seal.
Hi, just Justin, I would suspect the lower seal in this case, but to be sure, I would replace both. If you dont want to do them both, then run it till it starts leaking, and then carefully open the door to be sure water isn't dripping on the outside of the seal, from a higher place.
Usually these seals develop leaks at the bottom anyway.
Please rate my service kindly so I can stick with you.
Hi, Justin you really need to CALL espares have you done that?
Yes they are standard.
As I mentioned to you, they do not list all their parts on their site.
Please call: l 0844 9777 888.
Please rate now so I can remain with you .
I would have given you a different answer to your question of whether it is the seal or not.. and then requested another photograph.
Nevertheless, I see that you have given Michael the rating that he has asked for on this question, so I shall leave it with you and him since if he has the expertise to offer you that diagnosis he should now also be able to give you that part number and ultimately take responsibility if it doesn't correct the problem.
I will leave you two to get on with your attempt to get the parts Michael has told you that you need...
Justin, can you post me closer image of image 2, 3, and 4. and if you can, very close up images of 3, and 4.
