Hey everyone. Hoping for some help here. Got a Whirlpool WDF760SADW2 dishwasher, and the leaking from the left hand side being pushed under the door seal. Happens at around the 20 minute mark. Took the door panel off and ran the machine and can see it perfectly that the water is being pushed out from under the left hand side gasket.

The dishwasher stops for a second and you can here the diverter motor changing position and then the water gets pushed out from under the bottom seal as soon as the washer motor kicks back on. Changed the spray arm, still happening. Changed the bottom door gasket, still happening. Water level seems normal.

Pulled the dishwasher out and leveled it almost perfect, still leaking. None of the tubes or other spray arms have anything noticeable wrong. Any suggestions of something to try?

Hi, Which spray arm did you replace?

Are you noticing a lot of suds in the tub when it leaks?

If not, then its likely the lower spray arm is the culprit. Another member had this same issue and his uses the exact same lower spray arm your model uses.

Here's his thread:

Here's the lower spray arm for your model you can order:
W10837249 Arm-Spray


Keep us posted.

That is the spray arm I replaced. 👎
No suds. It’s weird because it’s right after the diverter runs. Really stumped on this one.
