Whirlpool dishwasher model DU1100XTPT6 that is leaking like sieve from bottom of door.
Hello,My name is XXXXX XXXXX be helping you today. Is the water coming out of the center of the door or on one of the sides ?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Facing the dishwasher-- its coming from the left-center. A lot of water too, not a drip, drip situation.

how high up is the water level when this fills ? is it close to the lip of the door?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

not sure and not at house. If its filling close to lip of door or more what could be the solution? If it doesn't fill to lip of door (or more) what could be solution?

well that's hard to say. if its overfilling then the water will slosh up over the door lip which could be a float problem r if the machine isn't level that can cause it also. is the machine tipped forward too much ? or is it level? sometimes if the screws loosen the front can drop . if its not either of those issues it may be a problem with the lower spray arm assembly. possibly the bearing number 3 which is a plastic spacer and seal. you also want to take a look at the upper spray arm and the tube that runs up the back inside to the upper spray arms.
