GE GDT550PMRES leaks from the center of the door, brand new. The leak is is slow(1 drop every second or two). All seals and gaskets replaced along with inside door panel to ensure it’s not related to the dispenser. Unit is leveled slightly towards the back and not contacting counter or cabinets during open or shut. GE says unit will stop leaking as seals settle in from initial use. Has anyone had this issue and had it resolve on its on or do I have a lemon?

Leaks are hard to figure out from here however I can give you tips.

If it is soapy water and/or you have more than 1 inch of suds floating on top of the water inside the dishwasher when the leak occurs you have a detergent issue.

The seals having to "settle in" is BS.

My guess is its leaking around the detergent/ rinse aid dispenser because the screws weren't tighten from the factory.
