The number you have listed is a part number. Can I get the full model number located on a sticker around the front frame of the TUB and can be seen if you open the door?

OK, is there any way you can take a picture of the water under the dishwasher so I can see about where it's leaking from? There is a paper clip above the text box if you're on Chrome which you can use to attach pictures so I can see them.

no i have a friend coming out who works on them part time power shut off it is dripping behind the hoses under spraying mech
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 1 year ago.

OK that sounds like your circulation pump or one of the seals on the sump assembly is leaking. You will have to track back exactly where it's leaking from but if it's coming from the large plastic sump, the entire sump would need to be replaced. If it's coming from the circulation pump you may be able to replace the o-rings/seals, otherwise the entire pump would need to be replaced.

guess it's 5 bucks anyway will call my credit card and tell them to pay only that
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 1 year ago.

Yes I understand it won't drip all the time. Most likely you're looking at a bad circulation pump, but until you pull it out and determine where it's leaking for certain how can you expect anyone to tell you with any certainty what is leaking?
