The tub gasket is very easy to replace. First I pulled out the old gasket then using the center marking on the new gasket, I centered the gasket at the top then pushed the gasket into the track. At the bottom I reused the wire that holds the two ends in place making sure I attached the separation wire in the same configuration as with the old one. I had another leaking problem with the seal on the bottom of the door. GE does not sell a repair seal for the door bottom and a new inner door must be purchased at around $200. I made that repair using an old bicycle inner tube. I cut the tube into a one inch strip and epoxyed the strip to the tub where the door meets the tub.. Worked perfectly!
