Leaking dishwasher....

I have a GE, Potscrubber 650 that seems to be leaking from the bottom.
I have very limited knowledge about dishwashers, but I attempted to disconnect
the hoses and water pipe, and diagnose the problem.
After I put the dishwasher on its back and looked underneath, I went ahead
and tightened both valve that takes water out, and the another little small valve.
I put everything back and I still have the leak. I do know that the leak
seems to be right around the motor area. Is there any suggestions?
I would appreciate any help I can get.
Thanks!

If you have plastic drain hoses, check where the hose curves. These have a habit of cracking in the curved section and even leak when the DW is not being used. Good luck and reply back with any further questions.

Majak...I took a look under the dishwasher as the washing cycle was going.
I noticed the leak was dripping from the fan unit downwards. I tried to figure out where the water could be coming from, but my knowledge with dishwashers is very limited. I did not see any leaks in the water outlet hose.
Any suggestions where the water could be coming from?

Hmmmm may be talking a new motor and pump assembly. If it's not the pump assembly its usually the other. Look at the picture in this link and see if this is where the water is coming from.

Looks fairly close...How much does the motor/pump run?

I really have no idea. This is not really my field of expertise, I just know where to find info to help the members. Check with local appliance stores or maybe (not sure) the big box stores. Good luck.
