A little water leaks out the door vent of a new GE dishwasher when the door is opened at the end of the cycle. Is it broken?

Nah. Normal operation in these gimpy, new energy-star dishwashers-- they skimp on the heat during the dry cycle so everything comes out wet. Sublime Master KurtiusInterruptus explains:

The vent snorkel on these exits at the bottom left side of the door and has a small area that will catch condensation until the dry fan can evaporate it away...if you open the door right after the cycle, this is the water that drips out on the floor...no fix I know off for this except to be aware of it and stand ready to wipe it up promptly...GE imagination,as master regus loves to say!
