Why is my Kenmore dishwasher still leaking after I replaced the 5300808042 seal kit?

Leak from the center of bottom of model 587.736312 dishwasher is undiminished since changing the seal kit. I installed seal kit parts properly but might not have used gap gauge correctly. Didn't seem to need kit's extra shim washers but did have to press down on shim gauge to get reading that the space between gauge and shaft was filled. Instructions say only "hold firmly." Also, should pump plate (nos. 6 or 14 in diff. diagrams) and pump gasket (nos. 7 or 15) somehow have screws? Don't think tub has hole and the previous answer mentioned the sump gasket.
