My whirlpool dishwasher model WDT710PAHB leaks at bottom of door "only" at beginning of cycle Apx at the 51 minute mark. When it leaks water comes out very fast and then stops only in the middle and bottom of door. Dishwasher continues to run and completes cycle just fine. No more leaking. What could cause this to leak just at start???

Take the door air vent deflector off and see if its all caked up and clogging the vents, if so that will cause the water to gush out the bottom of the door fast when you first start the dishwasher.

Watch this video to remove it:

Thanks for the tip! Before I tried that I adjusted the front Leveling screws and raised the front of the dishwasher up. Just ran a load and no leak. Fingers crossed that this was the simple fix.
