Waterwall Leaking From Bottom Front Corners - Samsung Dishwasher DW80R9950UG

I have been trying to troubleshoot the waterwall dishwasher I have. I am getting no where lol. I have replaced the waterwall vane which has a new red magnet on it. I have tested it and verified that the vane at first start of the cycle will come to the front and go to the back. I push on the vane and it will stop if I push on it as it comes forward. Not sure how much pressure it takes to stop it though with such a small motor? The vane is steady and not wobbily as it goes down the vane rail.

Any other possibilities? I bought the dishwasher used for really cheap in hopes I could fix it. The samsung tech they had out before selling it said it was the waterwall vane (could mean a million things). That's why I purchased a new one. Any tips? The dishwasher will physically leak from the front corners and throw an LC code.

I don't know that it's even a waterwall issue? It leaks within the first 30 seconds of a cycle. I don't believe the waterwall jets are on at that point?

I'm not that familiar with Samsung dishwashers, hopefully another tech or member that's seen this problem before and fixed it can shed some light on it for you.
