dishwasher leaks small amount, only after it sits for a long time and is off


i have a new kitchenaid dishwasher that was installed this month.
kitchenaid model # kudc10fxss5
for the first couple of weeks, it has run just fine.
this past week i noticed something odd...water running from under the dishwasher...not while it is running
i took off the kick plate and there is a slow drip coming from underneath, on the back end of the circular part of the dishwasher underneath.
it doesnt drip while it is running
it doesnt drip while it is draining
it doesnt drip while it is drying
actually it only seems to drip after i open the dishwasher to put the dishes away.  doesnt matter if it is immediately after it is done drying.  it happens within minutes of whenever i open it to empty it.
i ran the dishwasher yesterday at 4pm.  i checked underneath all yesterday and this morning.  at 10 am today i decided to empty the dishwasher.  i unload the top rack and then look underneath, and there is the water
its approx 1-2 tablespoons of water, varying.
any thoughts as to what it could be?

Could be your seal for your pump got pushed up or isn't setting good,or water is dripping from your sensor.Time to get the mirror out. Water leaks can be anything as water takes the path of least resistance.

are these things i can do myself?  im pretty handy with electricity and plumbing, but generally stay away from appliances

yes you can.

If it is brand new I would call and get warranty work done on it. You could certainly fix it yourself, but the parts will cost you.
