The tub gasket was very easy to replace and took only five minutes. Just remove the old one and start installing the new one at the center of the tub. There is a white dot on the new gasket to indicate the center. Push the gasket into the channel and run it to the corners. Pull the gasket down to the bottom to make sure you have enough length to fit and insert the rest. The short bottom seal was another story. The internet suggests removing the door panel and I did this and could not access the old seal. I put everything back and started all over again. I removed the bottom basket and used a drop light inside the washer. Using a dental mirror I was able to see how the seal was installed. I then used an old screw diver to pry the old seal off. Installing the new one was not as difficult as removing the old one. I started pushing the new on one side and once it was started the rest popped on.
