That black or gray stuff you're talking about is actually a combination of old food particles and soap deposits. The stuff builds up in the corners of the lower front areas of the tub and right under the inside of the door where it closes over the tub front. These areas can develop "scungy" deposits because these are areas that the dishwasher doesn't always clean and/or water remains pooled. A little routine cleaning about once a week around the bottom lip of the door and the door gasket with a damp sponge will prevent this build up. Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Dishwasher tub leaks underneath
Hello. Anything is worth trying! But I would recommend epoxy. It works alot better with plastic and rubber items. Most of the leaks I have found in Kenmore machines are at the water pump. You may want to take a peek while it's running, just stay away from the wires!! Thanks!

the bottom seal isn't actually a seal, rather it serves as a splashguard. I had the same problem with the same model and started by replacing what I thought was a seal located at the bottom of the door.
Check if the screws on the top half of the pump (located under the lower spray arm which needs removed first) have become loose. The screws were barely in the threads which caused a stream of water towards the door and leaked between the splashguard and bottom edge of the tub and onto the floor.
