Dishwasher leaning back

I recently had a contractor reinstall my dishwasher and he set it leaning back slightly. I am not sure that this is correct but he said that it improves drainage. And he said that if there is ever standing water in there (i.e. electricity goes out mid-cycle) the water won't put pressure on door seals and leak out.

Sounds somewhat reasonable, but I recently discovered this guy was full of baloney on several other topics so now I am not so sure.

Any thoughts? Thanks.

Dishwashers go in level. They never fill with enough water to reach the bottom of the door and if the electricity goes out the fill valve stops filling.
