The lower door seal had fallen out as it was worn out so I wasn't sure of the proper orientation of the new seal or even where it went as the instructions had nothing about the seal. A little bit of logical thinking and the seal just just snapped in place. The door drains that came with the kit were both a right or left hand and so I didn't install them. Turns out that I didn't need the new ones anyway. The old door seal just pulled out and the new one just pushed into place. I was careful to center the top of the strip so that it would come out even at both sides of the bottom. There were no instructions for the door seal but none were needed. As long as I was working on the washer I did some cleaning to make it look new and bright...that took the most time. Easy repair and a happy wife besides.
