I had wasted 5-6 weeks waiting for SEARS to send me the CORRECT Part. They kept sending the wrong part, telling me that the right one would be sent "THE NEXT WEEK" & Then finding out that the CORRECT ONE was on BACK ORDER with NO KNOWN DATE of shipment in Sight! So I looked up the part on the Internet. FOUND PartSelect & THEY found the CORRECT PART(That was on Saturday) with in 3 days... I had the PART! PLUS the Part arrived in GREAT SHAPE-NOT SO WITH SEARS which came with the packaging ALL TORE UP & THE GASKET was half out of the box and BADLY RUMPLED UP! PARTSELECT had very helpful instructions on their site & Over the Phone helped me do it in little or no time at all! I did remove the 2 screws at the bottom or the door-VERY EASY!!! atwhich time I saw that I also needed 2 nylon washers(I had several on hand!) Removing the whole door is not necessary, but in my case I FOUND the very worn washers & Was able to replace them too!... Now the door moves alot easier! PLUS: with the door off, I could do(replace the metal strips)on the Bottom & Inside gasket EASIER!... I WILL NEVER get partsfrom Sears again & ALL of my future Parts Purchases will be from PARTSELECT! I am VERY IMPRESSED & HIGHLY RECOMMEND PARTSELECT!
