It all began when I attempted to better align door w/ box. The front panel was removed & the 3 hinge attachment screws, each side, where loosened in attempt to align.
   
     This is where leaking began, owners where not aware of any previous leaking& no sign of seriuos leaks. The recall repair  on the soap dispenser had already been done & removal of inside panel verifies that this is not the cause. 

      I noticed on previous posts about the possiablity of water level being to high due to float or split in wash arm. The arm appears to be fine, no visable signs of damage. The water level, (checked a few times during the cycle) on left (float side) was about 3/4"
   There had been water seeping past gasket, but incremetal tighting of the door catch seems to have stoped that The water leaks mostly at the far right (facing it) & sometimes at the wire harneess

    I don't know what else to do

If this dishwasher has a plastic tub, then the single most important thing to check is the level and square of the cabinet. It doesn't take much for the cabinet to become distorted, even ever so slightly, in the cubby space. This can happen if the cubby cutout is distorted and the dishwasher fit in there too tightly; or if the dishwasher is not level and square within the cubby-- check the front foot peg adjustment. I've not seen many cases where the door hinges need to be adjusted, although it can happen. But I've seen many cases where the dishwasher was not leveled and supported properly causing the cabinet to distort. Think on these things.
