Water was coming from the bottom right corner, so we figured easy fix. Took the front door panel off and discovered all the door insulation was wet (is that even replaceable??). First thing we replaced was the bottom tank gasket, but the leak got worse instead of better. So now we've replaced the bottom tank gasket seal, the seal that goes around the entire door, and the blue spinner part on the bottom wash arm. The water leaks through the holes on the bottom tank gasket. We installed the new one the exact same way we pulled the factory installed one out. We've watched videos and are sure we're doing it the exact same way. For the life of me I can't figure out why there are holes in the gasket piece to let the water come through! What are we missing?

Yes, it is replaceable, but it only comes as a assembly with the lower kickplate access panel here:

Did you check the lower spray arm itself for any cracks in it?

Here's the lower spray arm for your model:

Dadgumit, it was the lower spray arm itself! The top and bottom pieces have split. We duct taped it and ran a test rinse cycle and no leaks! Now to decide which arm or leg we want to use to pay for a new one.
Thanks for your help!

Glad you found it was the lower spray arm that was causing the leak.(y)

Thanks for the update!
