While running the dishwasher water leaks heavily out of the bottom front. I replaced the seal to no effect. I then noted that while the dishwasher is running there is a lot of standing water in the bottom which is what is running out during operation. When I place the operation in final rinse the water will drain out normally which tells there shouldn't be a clog. I have had this dishwasher for many years. Is it possible the pump is just not getting rid of the water as it should?

    Hello, and welcome to Home Improvement. Maybe the water level sensor is broken, so it fills itself too far? Hard to tell from here... – Daniel Griscom Dec 12 '18 at 23:55

    I had a water level sensor problem a long time ago and my dish washer leaked, after replacing when I put it back in the back feet jumped several positions and it was worse , finally figured it out the back was up to high, so if you have self adjusting feet be aware to keep the machine level as you push it back in. + – Ed Beal Dec 13 '18 at 0:34
  • We had this problem a few years ago. We switched soap brands and now use Finish. The leaks stopped. – Barry Dec 13 '18 at 1:14
