    my older dishwasher has started leaking a small amount of water out the front/bottom when it cycles.

    is something blocked? can i fix this myself?

    thanks!

    The first thing I would check is the door seal. Look at the bottom and bottom corners of the seal for cracks or rips.

    I had an old Hotpoint that did that. The seal had just wandered a bit in it's groove. I tugged it back where it belonged and it worked OK.
