Kenmore Dishwasher leaking through vents


I have a Kenmore dishwasher and about a month ago my wife, god bless her, thought that she could use regular dish soap in place of detergent since she had run out. BIG MISTAKE!! SUDS Went everywhere. I asked around and was told to put several capfulls of downy fabric softener into the machine and run it through several cycles. This apparently worked and we began using it regularly again. Now it is a month later and we have another problem; after the machine fills and the cycle starts water shoots out onto the floor through the vent at the bottom of the door. I took the inside door panel out and cleaned all of the gunk created from the soap and Downy mixture I created earlier. I started the machine again and the same thing, water everywhere. What could be the problem? I will try not to type a book next time but thought the history may be of importance. Please advise. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi homeboy,
- check the bottom of the doorseal very carefully, it may have come unseated or even split.

Do it Right - Do it once.
