With dishwasher removed from cabinet, I next removed the dishwasher racks and with a large adjustable wrench turned the vent cover (located on side wall) inside the dishwasher counter-clockwise a quarter of a turn or so and removed the vent cover and then air/ water inlet unit from the outside of the machine. I cleaned the unit and washer wall area prior to replacing the gasket. Replaced the gasket in the air/water inlet vent and reassembled in reverse order. Entire gasket replacement repair took about 5 minutes or less. Most of the time in this project is spent removing and then replacing the dishwasher in the cabinet cavity. My total project time was about 30 minutes.
