SmartDispense leaks detergent into the tub

\015 This is a recent problem. Probably just needs a $2 part. But I don't know what part to get. There is a small opening from which the detergent dispenses. However, it is leaking while the dishwasher is off. So there is a lot of detergent in the tub at all times. \015

My GE Profile model PDW9280N00SS dishwasher is 3 years old, and has the SmartDispense feature. Over the last month or so, a noticeable amount of detergent is leaking into the dishwasher between cycles. The dispenser is not clogged, and it does not contain water at this point. I also exclusively use Cascade liquid detergent. What needs to be done to correct the leaking detergent?

My GSD5940Do1ss leaks from what appears to be a tube that is in the middle left of the underside. There are no leaks from the hoses or pumps. It only leaks when it is adding water during the wash or rinse cycle. The part it is leaking from looks like a plastic tube that is part of the tub enclosure. There are four of them and I think they are really the mounting guides for the tub enclosure, which means the water is probably flowing down the tub to this spot. I'm assuming that means my seal arou

I have a Whirlpool DU9000XR-9 dishwasher that was leaking. No leaks were coming from the bottom of the tub or any connections, etc. I replaced the door seal where it closes on the tub. There is still a leak on the bottom of the door. Can you point me to a possible issue(s).

My GSD900G-01 dishwasher leaks where the hot water is supposed to go into the tub. There's a plastic fitting that seems to be glued to the side of the tub and the hose from the inlet valve goes to the top of this fitting. There are no visible cracks or other damage but there is some rust inside the tub at the fitting. The fitting has two open gaps on it's side which is where the water is leaking out. It looks like the water is supposed to flow past these gaps (which I'm guessing are there to

Water is leaking from the top of the top drawer, mainly on the right side of the top drawer. Is there an adjustment to raise the tub so that it would have an even seal to prevent the water from leaking.

This casue the flooding error at the end of the washing cycle.

Like so many others, I am experiencing a problem with my GE dishwasher's smartdispense. I have ALWAYS used the SAME detergent(Cascade Complete)and still have the gumming-up issue. I noticed that the dishes were not getting clean and when I opened the smartdispense cover I could see that the detergent was gelled. Spent the better part of 2 hours trying to remove as much gunk out of the dispenser as I could with the help of a plumbers flexible plastic drain cleaning tool. This really angers me as
