Check all spray arms for cracks and debris in the holes. Something is agitating up the water in the bottom to cause the leakage. You can tie a spray arm in place to find the problem by elimination.

I'm not sure what you mean by tie up the spray arm? If this helps I installed the dishwasher today. It is a used unit that was given to me. It was sitting in a garage for about a year.

Mean keep it from turning so you can figure out issue.

Now it's leaking on the lower left and lower right side and some dripping from the middle too. I tied the spray arm like you suggested.

Unit must be level or it will overflow. Still need to look at spray arms; I am not there so you must investigate and see what is going on to find the issue.
