This dishwasher appears to be leaking at the right front door.  The gasket seams O.K., I checked the soap dispensor and it seams ok with no leaks.  Is there an aftermarket gasket or foam to put in the lower corners of this unit to prevent the minor leaking during wash cycle?

Will these work on the Jenn-Air?  I've used them on a Kitchenaid? or was it something else.  Seems like the they are fairly specific to a certain make/model?  If they work on the Jenn-Air, how and where do I attach them?

In the picture, I noticed food particles on the door gasket, those food particles may just be enough to make the door leak.

Yes.

Instructions come with them.

Those corner deflectors are for Frigidaire dishwashers, they may fit in the Jenn-Air but I really doubt that is your problem.

 

The most likely problem is a hole in the plastic tub right in the little corner pocket area.

 

The reason I suspect this is one of these exact same machines got me once when a customer took the unit apart and left the kickplate off but put the screws back in the holes so he wouldn't loose them.

 

The problem comes when you put the long lower screws in the top of the kickplate panel, (the short - only about 1/2" long - machine screws go in the top).  The long screws are too long and screw right into and thru the plastic tub then when you take them out you have a hole and it leaks like crazy and it's really hard to tell where it's actually coming from because the hole is right behind the bracket that the kickplate mounts to and it looks like it is pour out over the gasket area.

Very interesting, I will take a look at that possibility when I go back.  I assume this is a risky repair, if at all possible?

No, plastic tub dishwashers can be easily and reliably repaired with JB weld or any other plastic-suitable epoxy.  I've patched many of them.
