I have a perpetual grayish-brown sludge at the base of the door where it meets the tub. I usually just hit it with the sink sprayer or wipe it up with a paper towel every few days, but it's really gross. For example, when loading dishes sometimes a glob of ketchup will fall off a plate or something, which is normal. I run the dishwasher, open the door, and there's the bright red glob of ketchup, untouched, under the base of the door. If the sprayers don't clean that area, shouldn't there be a gasket or something preventing things from getting under there?

We're in a rental, so I have no idea how old the machine is.
