I agree with others that this was an easy fix. My soap dispenser door latch grommet had almost completely disintegrated and was letting water enter into the door. Since I knew I was going to have the door apart I decided to also replace the rinse aid dispenser o-ring.

I installed the parts and put the door back on only to find it was still leaking! Ends up this was user error. I had not pushed the door latch grommet far enough back onto the latch. Once I did this the problem was solved. The latch has an indented ring in which the grommet seats, make sure to push it all the way on.
