Read this entire instruction before starting. The old gasket is pressed into a slot, so to remove the old one simply requires that you grab one end and pull it out, but first only pull a few inches of the gasket so that you can note its orientation in the slot since the gasket is not symmetrical. Now remove the old gasket and wipe the slot and surrounding surface clean of any detergent residue with a damp sponge. Next, start the new gasket at BOTH ends (ensure that they start at the same location as the old one) and press the new gasket lightly into the slot, working your way all the way around. Ensure that it is even and partially seated. There will be no extra length so if you have any slack, you have the gasket stretched. DO NOT cut or trim the gasket. Once everything is partially pressed in place and even, go back and press the gasket firmly into the slot. When complete, the door will need to be closed/latched with slightly higher pressure than normal the first few times but after a few cycles, the gasket will be fully seated and the door will close normally. Some versions of this dishwasher may need the strike replaced but this particular one did not.
