I'll have to run it.Also,the leak is very small.Putting a rage under the last few inches on the right side of the door absorbs all the water.
Appliance Technician: John, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
Ok run it and let me know if the leak stops when you push the door in.

The number 6 on the breakdown has a small rubber seal that usually tears causing the water to leak on that side.
