GE Dishwasher leaks oil - front door panel

This 5 year old GE Profile sometimes leaks oil, sometimes leaks rinse aid. It cleans fine and the soap door is opening. What could be wrong?

Thank you

As I am new to doityourself.com, what are my next steps to repairing this problem? Is there somewhere I can go to look up how to repair worn seal for dispenser?
What is the yellow/orange liquid that is leaking out? Only twice and it was small amounts - maybe a tablespoon.

door

Sometimes the door just doesn't close fully. There are two brackets that attach the dishwasher to the countertop. If one of the screws to these brackets are loose, it can keep the door from closing tightly, and it appears the door is fully closed. Check this. Otherwise, there is usually a replacable seal around the door. It would have to be ordered from most appliance parts store, because they don't typically wear out. Usually, its a problem like the one mentioned above.
