First, I want to thank others who have replied stating that they also needed the Dispenser Door Latch Grommet. I did, too.

Door Gasket-I used needle nosed pliers to grab the old gasket and pulled it right out. I took notice of the direction of the inside of the gasket to ensure I replaced the new in the same direction. I used a warm and wet wash cloth to clean around the gasket home and then gently pressed the new one in. Done! Just like that.

Dispenser Door Latch Grommet-
1. Unscrewed the 7 torx screws
2. Lifted the inside door
3. Unplugged the electrical connectors. Make careful note as to which goes where. They require moderate pressure to remore and reinstall (R&R).
4. I saw that the grommet did indeed need replacing and cleaned the old soap from inside the door.
5. Used a nut driver to unscrew the two screws holding the latch assembly. Needle nosed pliers will also work.
6. R&R the old and new grommet.
7. Reinserted the latch assembly and tightened the screws.
8. Replaced the inside of the door and fastened with the 7 torx screws.
9. No leaks. :-)
