Toughest part of this repair was the diagnosis: water leak you would think door gasket, but I replaced that and still had leak. Then I found a reference to "cracks in lower spray arm" that would splash water out of the bottom of the door. Checked it out and sure nough: cracks in lower arm. Removed one large (2 inch) plastic retaining nut with channellock pliers, pulled out the bottom assembly, popped off the arm (6 snap catches) with screw driver and replaced new arm, then installed rebuilt assembly. 5 minutes and Voila! No leaks.
