Hello,
Contractors moved my 2 year old Whirlpool WDT710PAYM6 dishwasher to the garage to install new cabinets and now it leaks from the front door on the right side and middle. It drains fine and runs the whole cycle, just drips when running. One thing I've noticed is the front panel at the bottom appears to be missing when they put it back in. Would this cause the machine to leak? I thought it was just for aesthetics but I know nothing about dishwashers. Any ideas?

No, missing that bottom access panel won't make it leak, But it really needs to be back in place like it was before.

Did they raise the front to legs UP when they re-installed it? That's probably why its leaking now, because the front is tilted forward, instead of being level with the back.

Excellent, glad to hear that.(y)

Thanks for the update!

Here's the lower access panel for your model, in case others need it too:
