The main tub gasket just pulled out by hand - no tools needed. Installing new one was just as easy, Just remember the wide part of the gasket sits in the bottom of the groove and cut off the excess with scissors.
Door gasket - not so easy. The six screws near the top of the door do NOT need to be removed, only the two (phillips) mid-way down the side. Remove the bottom panel by pulling down (it sits in a pocket of the top panel). The bottom door gasket just pulls out and insert the new one by hand (can be tight). Re-install bottom panel by sliding up into the top panel pocket, aligning the holes and screw home.
Normally,, you would be done but not in my case. The slow drip was still there. Investigation revealed that under the bottom panel (yes, we took it off again) is a tie-wrap holding wires at the bottom of the door that collects condensed steam and allows it to drip outside of the bottom plastic tray onto the floor. We thought that the tie-wrap was unnessesary and cut it off. Test drive- No more drips!
