Diagnosing the problem, i.e. finding the source of the leak, was the hardest part. The best clue was the leak only occurred well into the cycle when the water was hot and steam was coming out the vent. I then assumed there was a bad seal and steam & condensed water was leaking down into the door. I replaced the vent duct & seal, a broken drip cover (an internal part in the door), and replaced a missing rinse aid cap. This stopped the leak.

Just screwed the new cap in. This PartSelect was AWESOME. So easy. Lighting fast shipping !!!!
First I pulled the top half of the broken retainer nut out of the lower wash arm assembly. Then I took the was arm assembly off, removed the other half of the screw, set the lower spray arm seal into the lower wash arm assembly and screwed the wash arm retainer nut back in. As a bonus, I decided to replace the broken Wet agent cap. Had to use needle nose pliers to unscrew the broken bottom stuck in the well... That was the toughest part and it wasn't critical to the dishwasher functioning.
Replacing the pin with the spring is a little tricky, it was hard to hold it. And the little plastic pin breaks real easy too, its hard to get the lid to snap in place without breaking the pin.
