Thank you! Are you able to see where the water leaked from? Have you removed the water and tried another cycle to see if it leaks again?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I took off the side and seen that there was water in the bottom tray which cause the pump to run. I drained the water in the tray and ran it again but I have not yet opened the side again to see if the water is back. what would cause the water in the bottom tray ?

Expert:  Kelly replied 2 years ago.

The most common cause is water leaking over the tub in the front, usually caused by an obstruction to the spray arm, like a utensil falling down in the rack or a plate, anything that impedes the spray arm movement. If it leaked again, you would hear the drain pump running in flood mode. I suspect you have remedied the issue by drying the base out.
