I removed the gasket from the packaging & soaked it in hot water for approx 5 minutes to enhance the pliability of the rubber. I them opened the dishwasher door and removed the existing gasket, making sure I observed any specifics of the gasket, (ie...shape of gasket). I then cleaned any debris from the gasket channel. I took the new gasket from the water and folded it in half to determine where the middle was, and I started inserting the gasket beginning at the middle area of the channel, (just under the door latching mechanism). I finished inserting both sides and then closed the door for approximately 30 minutes to complete the gasket seating process. No leaks!!!
