The leak is during run cycle. At the bottom if the seal of the sump housing.
It seems like a no brainier. Such as the parts list to just replace the sump housing. Which appears to be a bad rubber seal. But I dont want to overlook something. So asking the question....
Seems to run fine other than leak.
Thanks!

Here are your parts

Does sound like just a seal problem but you could check this with a flashlight and a mirror.

A mechanics mirror is handy here. It is like a dentist's mirror just larger.
In a pinch a small mirror taped to a dowel at an angle will do the job.
I have even used one of the wife's makeup compacts.

This should let you see where the leak is originating.

Well after rechecking. Noticed how this is mounted with those stupid housing tab clips. The clip or tab has rubber grip that you insert into the sump housing and it presses against the frame to hold the housing,
What a stupid design. So I rigged it with a shim to apply more pressure to the housing against the frame. Works so far.
May just replace the tabs if it leaks again.
Poor design on those tabs.
