Using the information from this site on what could cause the problem, I ordered the door gasket and the detergent grommet. Silly to do the door gasket, which helped slow down the leak but didn't fix all of it, and then have to go and order the grommet and wait for that to show up when it is less than $5. I need of a door gasket really bad anyway. I peeled the old door gasket out with a screw driver and replaced the new one in less than 5 minutes. Test ran the dishwasher and found that it still leaked some. Removed the inner door panel as shown in the help video, 7 hex screws, very simple, no suprise pieces falling out, removed the detergent latch, (2) 1/4" screws, and slide out the piece. The grommet was almost gone. Slipped the new one on, replacing all the pieces the way they came off and test ran again. One little drip but I think it left over moisture from before. Have it twice since with no leaks. Perfect solution.
