The dishwasher is leaking terribly. Husband took apart the door on the inside and is looking to replace one nylon plastic strip. Is this the channel, retainer?

I have a Kenmore Ultra that was leaking from the bottom of the door panel. I got a new door gasket & installed it & there was no leak for about a month. Then it began to leak again. This time a drip comes off a screw head on the right side underneath the bottom of the door, it drips down onto the top of the ?kick plate? & then onto the floor. I checked for cracks in the spray arm & everything there is fine. I have ordered this lower vent barrier. How do I take everything apart to install this part? And do you think this is the problem? Thank you.

If the barrier (lower vent) is cracked would this cause water to spray out ?

I have a Kitchenaid dishwasher that I'm working on. The model number is; KUDS25SHWH1. I am trying to re-install the front sheet metal panels after replacing the control panel. I cannot remember how this "lower vent barrier" was attached. I seem to recall that it was attached to the bottom of the larger sheet metal panel, but I honestly just don't remember. When I look at the exploded view from Kitchenaid for this model, it looks as though it's between the inner door panel and the frame of the door, but I don't know how it came off if that's the case. Doesn't seem to make any sense that it goes there. Maybe the drawing is just showing it in a different place than it is actually located? I also noticed that this "lower vent barrier" (p/n 8054188) supersedes to 8283179, and that part now has an Instruction Sheet associated with it, so there must have been some questions about installing it. I'm kind of at my wits end trying to figure out where this "vent barrier" was originally attached and how to now re-install it. Can you help me with this? Thank you, Eric
