Problem Water leaks (gushes) from lower door seal. I have replaced lower door seal, side drain cups and perimeter tub gasket. Water continues to leak, not as bad, sometimes during the rinse cycle and othertimes during the wash cycle. The leak is not consistant in degree of leak or location accross the bottom of dooor to tub seal. ? the door to tb seal does not fit tightly on door, could this be problem? ? could the bushings of the lower wash arm assy. be worn to a degree that would cause water to be blown up under the door to tub seal causing it to leal?

Greg for Model Number kudm25shbl1

ANSWER Greg, Have you checked the dishwasher for level in both, side to side and front to back. The dishwasher needs to be level for proper operation and water distribution. Then remove and check the lower spray arm 9742947 and bearings 9742946 3376846 for debris in the openings, split seams and excessive wear, causing water to be directed at the bottom of the door.
