After receiving the seal, I installed it and carefully observed its operation and found the reason why the original one was broken in the first place. For some reason the bottom of the washer where it mates with the seal was deformed and it caused the original seal to suffer stress which led to its being broken, and it may be the reason why I got occasional leakage.

We bought this dishwasher at a %40 discount at a Sears outlet. It was probably returned by the original owner for this reason. Using a rubber mallet I was able to easily beat it back into shape and the new seal now fits like a glove.

But probably the most amazing thing was I was able to easily find the part at PartSelect.com after some googling around. Now I know where to find parts for my dishwasher and perhaps other appliances when the need arises.
