Door Gasket - Gray

This gasket wraps around the sides and top of the dishwasher door and helps seal the door when it is closed to prevent water from leaking from the dishwasher during the washing cycle. If your dishwasher is leaking water, first inspect the seal for food particles near the bottom and sides, and remove it. A buildup can stop the door from closing properly and keeping a tight seal. Check the door gasket for tears, cuts, or wear. If the gasket is damaged, you will need to replace it. Before starting the repair, make sure to disconnect the power to the dishwasher.

These two "legs" must rest on the inside of the edge of the de... read more
