Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
Re:"Would you know whatelse might be causing it to leak only at the lower right corner of the door?"
Yes: the overfill switch. Dishasher seals leak only when the gasket ir really worn or when the overfill switch is defective.
Replace the overfill switch and/or float sensor.
The switch can be tested reading Ohms at contacts while moving the arm. You will see the multimeter changing unless the switch is bad.
The float may be less simple to diagnose, as this can sink, get stuck, or have a bent arm. Sometimes I test them in my own way, by securing a polistirene float to the original one, but that is a bit complicate to explain.
Here parts involved:
Float SwitchPart Number: PS34290 Float-Part Number: PS343880
Here all parts and diagrams for your model.
If the solution works, please do not forget to accept.

Thanks for using FixYa. Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. Also, the latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem. If the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
