Just thought I'd throw in my 2 cents worth.  Had the same problem on my whirlpool dishwasher (about 4 years old) replaced door gasket and it still leaked from the bottom of the door.  What finally fixed it was cleaning out all of the gunk and crap that was clogging all of the water discharge holes on all 3 arms.  This allowed pressure to flow evenly, and now door does not leak.  Whew!

There is a vent panel, unlabeled, at top of inside of dishwasher door.
Pry this off and you will probably find plugged with crud.
Clean, replace panel and you are good to go!

Usually takes years for this to cause leak from door.
Clearly, a "self-destruct" feature.
A clever design feature that must have won a prize for the engineer who figured it out.
Else, why not a label on the panel:"Remove Panel and Clean Regularly" and a tab on the panel for easy opening?

Could be, but I doubt it.
