Door leak seems to be coming from the right side facing the dishwasher. I replaced the inner door seal but it still leaks. I don't see any obvious damage to lower door seal. I noticed that the door is not in the center of the opening. The door is offset to the left perhaps 1/8". This could be preventing the door from closing against the seal on the right side. When I watched a video on hinge replacement the Kitchenaid dishwasher in the video had guides down low on the door that would center the door upon closing. My Kenmore unit does not have such guides. I can't help but wonder if they would help.

No, that shouldn't be the case for yours or it would have leaked from Day 1, you see what I mean?

You may have a bad lower spray arm, look here:

Here's the lower spray arm for your model: W10849471
