Unscrewed top and sides of door.Disconnected old door latch by removing terminals on one side at a time and reconnected before completing the next side. Preventing wrong terminal/connection mix up. Pulled old gasket out and replaced with the new gasket. It would not hold in place because of the way it was packaged, twisted up.---I had to hang the gasket lengthwise over night so the twisted areas would release. The next day had no problem installing it. Although it was rather hard to lock the door at first, after a few wash loads the gasket softened up and formed a better seal.
