It seems that I have water coming out at the top of the Inlet Sump when the dishwasher is running. The water comes out at the top where the clamp is located. I believe I also have a little drip coming from the other clamp that I think is connected to the lower washer arm.

See pics

With the dishwasher off there are no leaks anywhere

When looking at the leaks it appears that the water is leaking from that spot but I have the feeling it might be a seal from the inside. Everything underneath looks like new although the machine is about 9 years old. The lower washer arm has seen better days and is a bit wobbly which is making me think its a seal on the inside.

What is the best way for me to troubleshoot this? I haven't tried to tighten the clamps yet. They don't feel loose when I tug on the sump but Could they have gotten loose ( or is there some kind of sealer that might have dried up or vanished) and would it be a good idea to disconnect the sump and put some kind of sealer or silicone and clamp it back on as my first go at this?

when I first noticed the leak I thought it was the door seal. I ordered a new one which I should get in a day or so but I don't think that's the problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
