DISHWASHER LEAKS FROM IT...

DISHWASHER LEAKS FROM IT APPEARS THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR, IT IS MODEL SHU3032UC/U12 SERIAL # FD8009 20-0048. THE RUBBE SEAL GOING ACROSS THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR APPEARS TO SPLIT ALL THE WAY ACROSS, IS IT SUPPOSE TO BE LIKE THAT? SOMETIMES IT DOES NOT LEAK BUT MOST OF THE TIME IT DOES.

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your dishwasher? And have you run a diagnostic test cycle?

YES AND NO I HAVE NOT RAN ANY KIND OF TEST

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

YES

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

ONLY IS IT SOMETHING THAT IS REPLACEABLE IF IT IS THE SEAL?
