I was given a portable dishwasher that seems to be in fairly decent shape - plenty of heat and power of spray... The issue is, that I just recently ran the cycle and lots of water leaked from the front panel. My hunch is that it was not level - and thus leaked. Could this be the case with a portable, or is it something more serious?

Would had to deep 6 it as I just refinshed the wood top - and it looks nice.

Hi, yes - your hunch could be correct. A dishwasher does fill up at times during its cycle although the water inside them doesn't normally get too deep. How does the gasket on the door look - any rips/tears/cuts? Since the water's being sprayed at high pressure, it's possible either something's wrong with the door gasket or possibly a piece of silverware might have been stuck in there. A door gasket shouldn't be too expensive although it could be a little hard to find (a special order item from your local appliance repair/parts shop). I hope this helps some - good luck!
