Why is my Frigidaire dishwasher leaking water?

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher model number DW5700P*1 that leaves water on the floor under the motor about 1 hour after completion of a cycle.


I requested and received info about a leak on my Frigidaire dishwasher DW5700P*1 and was informed by MMHexpert that it was the seal pump kit that should be replaced and he would send additional information if I were going the replace it, I plan to replace it myself if I can get the additional information needed to make these repairs. Also since I will have the machine broken down should I replace any other seals or gaskets? The replacing of the Seal kit which includes the impellor is done from the bottom or thru the inside of the machine?

This repair is done from inside the dishwasher. Remove the lower spray arm #31, filter body assembly #28, upper impeller #4, food chopper #5, spacer plate #7, plate & gasket #8-9 & the lower impeller #11. Use a flat blade screwdriver to pry the seal out of the lower pump housing. Clean out the lower pump area & press the new lower seal in place, you can use a small amount of lubricant to coat the rubber edge to help seat the seal. The other seal with the ceramic goes inside the lower impeller #11, rubber side goes up, ceramic side down to mate with the lower seal. Reassemble in reverse order.

No other parts should be needed.
