Our dishwasher has been leaking slowly for almost a year, but has started to pick up pace making it noticeable. Any help on what this issue looks like it is or suggestion for a fix? Thanks!

Added model number

Hi, W1062035A is a part number, we would need the model number, it should start with 665. The model number tag is located inside the door on the tub frame.

Looks like the diverter seal is leaking.

Thanks!

Yes, its possibly leaking from the diverter sump seal, that's the most common place for it to leak on these models.

You'd need to order the sump assembly, it comes with the new diverter motor seal already installed in it for you, unfortunately that don't sell that diverter seal separately.

Here's the sump assembly for your model:
WPW10455268 Sump


There is a video in the part link that shows you how to replace the sump assembly.

Also see if you can reach your hand in and feel if its coming from the Motor to Pump seal first. It can leak there as well.

Here's the Motor to Pump seal for your model:
Motor to Sump Seal WPW10538166


There is a video in the part link that shows you how to replace the Motor to Pump seal.

Let us know what you find.

So it looks like the whole thing is over $100... do you think it is worth it to just buy a new dishwasher or is it worth it to fix this one?

That usually depends on how much you use the dishwasher. If you use it daily or many times a day its better to save the repair money for a new dishwasher.
