I worked in the appliance repair field for over twenty years and found that most leaks are caused by(depending on when they leak) Bad door seal or door adjustment (as it washes) leak in the drain hose or under sink at disposer (when it drains) bad connection to water valve (leaks all the time) Bad pump (leaks most of the wash cycle)
