First you must remove all screws around inside door frame, and remove panel. (I would recommend using something to weight door down after removing panel from door as it will try to continue to close) Flip panel over and remove old seal by simply pulling off, paying close attention to how the seal is fitted and direction it faces. Clean area of any debris,and let the learning curve begin, after several frustrating attempts, I found it easier to install new seal by first installing it backwards by sliding seal along its track and groove, this will allow it to loosen up, then remove it and install the seal by lapping it over the the track and snapping/sliding it into place. The repair itself from the service center would of been $180.00 - $200.00, I did it myself for $39.00. I would recommend anybody with a sense of aptitude and patience to do this repair themselves. After some research I found out that this model and problem is a common repair, which is somewhat ridiculous in my opinion, as the machine itself is only 2 1/2 years old and it came pre-installed in a new home.
