Pin hole leak in metal under dishwasher

I have a Kitchen Aid KUDS230BWH0 dishwasher and recently noticed water leaking out onto the floor. I took the front lower panel off and discovered a small rusted out pin hole leak underneath. What is the best approach to repair the leak after it has completely dried out? J-Weld?

Difficult to weld stainloess steel. another way is to drill out the hole slightly and fit a small nut and bolt with fibre washers

Rinse aid appears to be leaking

Now, not knowing about the model you mention, I am going to tell you about the same problem I encountered with my dishwasher. We, too, started seeing water on our floor when we were running our "built-in" dishwasher. I checked the water level in the washer and it was not overflowing from being too full. So, I removed the panel at the front bottom of the washer so I could see the workings. First thing I did was to feel around for moisture on connections and other parts. When I got to the bottom of the pump, I did feel moisture. This told me that the pump was leaking. Unfortunately, most manufacturers nowadays use non-metallic metallic components and with mine it was made of plastic. When I removed the pump, I saw a crack in it along a seam (where it is molded together after the internal workings of the pump are in place). The pump turned out to be almost as expensive as a new machine but I was blessed. A friend of my son was remodeling his kitchen and that included a new dishwasher. He gave me his original one (which turned out to be a recently built one by the same manufacturer) and I installed it and haven't had a leak since.
Now, I hope that this does help but as I said, I am not familiar with your free-standing model.

The 2 metal "clips" that secure the dishwasher to

door gasket possibly bad or another leak. Stop using dishwasher until repaired or you're likely to ruin your floor. I just had this problem before we found a leak and now we may have to replace the kitchen flooring.

Order new clips or the dishwasher could fall out onto the floor or even onto your foot.

At some point the dishwasher leaks onto the floor. what could be the possible problem?

this are the possibilities for the leak :-----
Door gasket loose/torn
Corner gaskets or door baffle/vent gasket
Door lock/latch loose/broken
Split spray arm
Over filling with water...usually the level is just under the heating element is normal
Something leaking through the door...like the soap or rinse agent dispenser gasket, silverware basket button.
Door hinge(s) bent
Wrong soap was used...dish sink soap instead of dishwasher soap
Rinse aid being used with mechanically softened water ( makes foam or suds inside the dishwasher )

Leaks from under the unit:
Look for whiting or calcium stain on the motor and pump assembly = motor and pump assembly seal leak...access panel removal help
Hose for upper spray arm split
Fill hose split or fill hose spout air inlet is calcium covered
Drain hose is split
Rusted liner...metal liners only
Fill valve leaking or allowing water to fill all the time
Heating element ends....where they come out through the dishwasher liner
Float or float gasket.
