We have a slight leak in our Whirpool dishwasher GU1200XTKT0. I say slight, but it was enough to cause our wood floor to buckle a bit
The water drips from the bottom loop of a black hose that goes from the water inlet valve up to the outside of the dishwasher shell. The black hose attaches to the piece below, which then attaches to the left side of the shell. On the inside is a vent-looking piece that screws into this and holds it against the side wall.
I'm trying to determine if this is the leaking part, but I'm confused about its function. What does this piece do? Is it prone to leaking?
