My ~2-year-old GE Triton dishwasher (GSD5500G01BB) leaks water from the bottom center of the door. Gaskets are fine, spray arms are clear and free-spinning, and it's definitely not "over-sudsing." I took the door apart to witness the phenomenon first-hand. As the spray arm rotates, water is splashing up between the two ends of the door bottom gaskets, a sort of "wave" generated by the passing of the spray arm--As designed, this 2-piece gasket has about a 3" gap in the center of the door. Water is also splashing up through the vertical "vents" along the back side of the door, across its width. This splashing is enough that an occasional drop lands out of the tub and eventually finds the floor. These door "features" are as-designed, so why is water coming out of the tub? Level too high? If so, is that anything I can adjust? "Wave action" too violent? How does the spray arm generate this, and what control do I have over it? Any ideas are appreciated.
