Leaking at the bottom in the middle of the door

you need to determine if it's coming from inside the door or under the front of the dishwasher, if the door latch needs adjusting it can get water through the latch slot, the dispenser can work it's way loose and water can leak through it, or the seal on the bottom of the door can get dirt stuck on it which can cause water to leak out.
Otherwise it could be in the bottom of the dishwasher, it is a matter of closer investigation.

Leaking at the bottom of the door and unsure where plastic door seal goes.

This dishwasher will leak if there is to much water in the unit.
I have the same dishwasher with a different problem.
Mine won't circulate the water. I have not use it for a while and some water will back feed from the sink and fill the dishwasher, so if I don't check for that problem once in a while I see it start to leak.
It never has done that when the unit was working....

Brand new kenmore dishwasher leaking out the front

Check the door gasket for uniform seating. Align it. If this does not solve the problem, contact the service provider. He may change the gasket or do the corrective action.

Eurotech Dishwasher is leaking - How to get to the guts to fix it

When a dishwasher leaks, it is usually the door seal or the water level gone wrong. Assuming the door was never leaned-on and the hinges bent, then you look to the seal or in some cases a splashshield fin that goes along the bottom between door and frame. If the unit is more than 7 or 8 years, the seal or shield plate could have lost its shape enough to allow water to get by.
The other problem, is the water level is too hi and this can be because the float switch is filled with soap scum and is heavier than normal, so the float thinks there needs to be more water than usual. Clean the float, you may need to remove a guard shroud to access the float. Goodluck, macgivor

hi , it can be the door seal dirty or damage but it can be also the spray arm :
Check your spray arm that nothing got stuck in its holes. make sure the spray arm is turning all the time when using the machine :
put the spray arm in 90 degree position, turn the unit on , open the door after few min check that the spray arm move...
make sure your seal of the door is clean and nothing prevent it to close evenly the door...
