This answer was rated:

my kenmore dishwasher elete is leaking between the door and the main cabinit (i think).
the gaskets seem to be ok , the bottem gasket is different then the side gaskets ,, more like a defuser then a gasket like the side ones . it does not leak every time and when it does sometimes its a bigger leak then other times . could the water fill be to high at times ,, ?? thank you
