At first I considered replacing the gasket on my own but was not sure If that was the problem. I had a service person come in (at great expense) to tell me it may or may not be the problem but he could order the gasket and replace it. I did it myself.

I removed the old gasket by hand, simply by pulling it out of its track. I sprayed clean water in the track to clean out old soap and debris. I soaked the new part in warm water for a few minutes to soften and lubricate it. I centered the gasket in position and began pushing it into the track with a one inch putty knife, being careful not to damage the rubber. There is a slot along the gasket that will accept a flat tool to push it in. At the corners, I had to use a screwdriver to work around the curves. In a few minutes the gasket was in and no more leaks. It couldn't be easier.
