I did not find a crack in the lower spray arm. Is there anything else that would cause water to come out from under the door?

Greg for Model Number Du1100xtpqa

ANSWER Hello Greg, Make sure the little holes in the spray arms are not clogged. If they get stopped up, as the spray arms circulate, they will put a "wave" in the water which will cause the water to jump the front of the tub. Also, when you start the unit and let it circulate the water for a couple of minutes, you should check for soap suds on the water. This is an indication of a possible over soap situation which can cause the unit to drip from the front. If these tests produce no result the water valve is probably not closing as designed and you are getting a slight overfill which can cause the same situation. If you have any way to check the water pressure supplied to the valve, less than 30 p.s.i. is bad and the water supply should be checked by a plumber.
