Pulled the old gasket out. Used a small vacuum, small screw driver, and lysol wipes to clean and scrape out the gasket channel. Found the center of new gasket and started inserting it from the middle of the channel on top. It was easy to do using only my fingers. The first try I ended up with a gap at the bottom so pulled it out and stretched it slightly as I installed it the second time. Took 5 minutes to clean channel and another 5 minutes to install it twice. No leaks, door is a little snug to close the first couple uses. Anyone can do this with no tools and little time and effort.
Pulled out the old gasket around the tub. Put the new one in using the notch at the top as the center point. It was much thicker than the old one and the door was hard to close but it softened once I ran a load.
opened pkg; soaked gasket in warm water about 15 min.; put little "v" in middle of gasket at top of gasket track then pushed into place down right side then the left. Mine met at center in bottom just fine. Was so simple to do. The longest part was cleaning out the track after removing the old dried gasket. A girl really can do this!!!
I checked YouTube for repair ideas and decided to try the simplest first: replace the gasket. All of the other instructions on this page were super helpful. I removed the old gasket using needle nose pliers to get it started, paying attention to how the old one was in place. There was a gap of about 1 1/2" on the original gasket. I pressed the new one in place, starting with one of the corners first. The new one only has a gap of about 1/4". I had to apply a lot of pressure to get the door to lock. Leaked a small amount at first but then completely stopped. I called my Dad for some advice and he said that it takes a bit for the gasket to seat all the way, which I also read on this site. My dishes dry in one cycle now too. I had been running the dry cycle twice and now I believe that may have been my first indication to replace the gasket. Part came really quickly and all of the user instructions were awesome! I would definitely use this site again.
Pulled the old one out and pushed the new one on. Very Simple. Reading input from others gave me the confidence that I could do it.
