Removed old gasket. The bottom of the gasket was decaying on each side of door. Cleaned out the gasket groove on the tub. Fitted new gasket without problem, making certain the bottom on each side of door had sufficient gasket material to complete the seal when door was closed. After shutting off power to the unit, I removed the screws holding the door back in place. I disconnected the wire harness to the dispenser latch mechanism. The door back was then placed on the floor with the dispenser mechanism facing up. Removed two screws hold the mechanism in place, lifted it off door and exposed the latch grommet. Remove old grommet, place new one on the latch. Reattched the mechanism, wire harness. Reassembled the door, turned on power and performed a test cycle to check for leakage. No leak, problem solved!
