Kenmore Elite Dishwasher 665.13183K800 leaking through the Motor Diverter

Hello, I have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher 665.13183K800 that is 2.5 years old and it is leaking pretty heavily through the motor diverter. I initially thought it was the seal around the door, but after pulling the unit out and testing it, I can clearly see it leak through the diverter. I see the Motor-divrtr listed as part #17 on the "Pump, washarm and motor parts" diagram, but i am sure if it is, in fact, the diverter. There is a rubber washer/gasket that the diverter rests against and I think this might be my problem.


Is that rubber washer included with the Motor Diverter? If not, what is the part number for it? It looks to me that the seal between the motor diverter and the rest of the unit has failed? I looked online through the diagrams for this dishwasher, but can not find that seal.


Also, could this leak be caused but something slightly different? What are the reasons for the diverter to fail and what is really the function of this motor diverter.


Thank you very much for your help.


-Andrew
