We received the part in just a day or two so thank you for quick delivery. The base of the dishwasher door was leaking...not the actual gasket but a long strip at the base of the door had separated. With the help of a talented neighbor, my husband and our good neighbor pulled the dishwasher out from its installed place, took off the door and found a screw which needed a star-shaped screwdriver. Fortinately another neighbor had just the right screw was removed, old strip pulled out, new strip slid into place, door re-attached, dishwasher shoved back into place and anchored as though everyone knew what they wre doing! It works fine now....a small leak continued the first few washings but all is perfect now. We hope it lasts....and lasts.....and lasts! Thanks. Happy Wife
