The container that holds the rinsing agent on whirlpool

Customer Question
The container that holds...

The container that holds the rinsing agent on whirlpool dishwasher is leaking

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Purchased 11/2016 and has never provided a clear, clean rise esp. noticeable on my glasses. I have attempted to refill with rinse agent and just realizing it is leaking - I thought perhaps I had overfilled

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Depends on the amount of work involved or I will need the name of repair expert in my area

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Nothing I am aware of ... any idea on cost

May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information? The tag is on the tub once the door is opened.
