Samurai's 13th Law of Appliance Repair states that, "All leaks are visual."  One thing I do on tricky leakers is to remove the kickplates and spread newspaper underneath and in front of the dishwasher.  Then I have the customer put in the usually amount of detergent and start the machine in her usually cycle. 

On more than one occasion, the problem turned out to be that she was using too much detergent-- was ok for a while but as the dishwasher aged, it was less able to withstand the extra sudsing. 

In your case, I suspect an aging door gasket is no longer sealing well.
