1. Pulled out the old gasket (very easy. slid right out).

2. Carefully noted how it went in (so I could put the new one in correctly)

3. Measured the length of the new gasket. Unnecessarily worried that the new gasket appeared to be 2" shorter than the old one.

4. Cleaned the track and the general area around the dishwasher that rarely gets clean. Took 15 minutes.

5. Inserted the new seal, making certain it was fully inserted all along the track. It was a perfect fit.

6. Patted myself on the back and bragged to my wife that the job was done.

7. Life is good.
