Hi. I think my dishwasher is leaking from the steam vent in the door. I've been noticing small puddles after a cycle so I put a camera under the door where the puddles were forming. I can see water trickling down the inside of the door underneath where the vent is so I know the leak is coming from the top of the door and presumably the vent.

If it is an issue with the vent I had hoped I could just replace it but the part seems to have been discontinued:

This person seemed to have the same issue (https://www.applianceblog.com/mainf...1050rec2-water-leaking-from-steam-vent.85934/) and they said they covered the vent in aluminum foil and that stopped the leak before replacing it entirely. Unfortunately I have a different model so I can't use the part that they were suggested. Should I try the aluminum foil or will that cause damage?

I'm not sure what to do. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Sure you can, it won't hurt to try it on your model as well.

Thanks! I will try that. Blocking the steam from escaping won't have any negative consequences?

That's the only concern I had as well, it may have negative consequences, if so, then you will need to go new dishwasher shopping.
