Pulled the old gasket. Cleaned gasket channel very well. Centered middle of new gasket with the door latch. Then worked gasket in both directions to both ends. Closed the door and left with door tight for several hours to allow it to seat with the new gasket. When use was resumed the leak, at least to this point, has stopped.

Place the wood block uner the motor and you will see the seal is accessable inside the dishwasher. Remove the seal and very carefully clean the area that accepts the new seal. Remove the block and pull back on the white plastic lever. Done!

I bought the replacement rack which fits, accommodates the cutlery container but does not come with clips and hits the spray arm. Too bad they can't make an arch over the arm. Also, why did they stop making the clips for the rack pieces? We are trying ties for now. But have to be carful to not hit the spray arm.

Replaced the inner door foam insulation strip and door gasket.I believe the "secret" is not to push the door gasket in all the way. Let the door find its own seat. Problem fixed.

This was as simple a repair as you will ever get, at least on a 16 year old Maytag like we have. Literally just take the old gasket out and put the new one in -- just make sure to look at the old gasket to ensure you are inserting the proper end of the new one into the channel, I almost put it in wrong, but then again I'm brain damaged where home repairs are concerned. The door is more difficult to close after I put the gasket in, so I may have to adjust the door closing mechanism just a tad.

Installing the door gasket is relatively easy, it just pushes in place without any adhesive. Just make sure it is even on both sides
You can to pull it out and reinstall to even it all way around the door if needed.
You may also find a new gasket will make to door a little harder to close. I presume it will be easier to close over time.
I also installed a new float at the same time but that repair is very difficult, takes specialized tools and lots of patience.

Suspected Door Springs broken

After I got the new springs, I pulled the dishwasher out and the springs were fine but the little plastic piece that attaches the spring to the door was gone. So now I had to order the that piece and wait again.
