Pulled the old gasket. Cleaned gasket channel very well. Centered middle of new gasket with the door latch. Then worked gasket in both directions to both ends. Closed the door and left with door tight for several hours to allow it to seat with the new gasket. When use was resumed the leak, at least to this point, has stopped.

This was as simple a repair as you will ever get, at least on a 16 year old Maytag like we have. Literally just take the old gasket out and put the new one in -- just make sure to look at the old gasket to ensure you are inserting the proper end of the new one into the channel, I almost put it in wrong, but then again I'm brain damaged where home repairs are concerned. The door is more difficult to close after I put the gasket in, so I may have to adjust the door closing mechanism just a tad.

Installing the door gasket is relatively easy, it just pushes in place without any adhesive. Just make sure it is even on both sides
You can to pull it out and reinstall to even it all way around the door if needed.
You may also find a new gasket will make to door a little harder to close. I presume it will be easier to close over time.
I also installed a new float at the same time but that repair is very difficult, takes specialized tools and lots of patience.

It took less then 10 minutes to rplace the new gasket. I think that Maytag is way ahead of the competion on this. The Dishwasher is now back to working and no more leaks.

Gasket on my Maytag dishwasher was not making a good seal. I found PartSelect online. Entered my model number and make. Placed my order and received it the next day. The cost of the part reasonable. The website user friendly. Love PartSelect.

I followed the video provided with the Order Acknowledgement. Very Very simple and easy to do. This is without a doubt the best company I have ever dealt with online. Prompt, quick delivery and very professional. The only mistake I made was not ordering the O ring for the soap dispenser. I am in the process of ordering that right now. This is the go 2 place for appliance repairs for sure. You won't be disappointed in any way.

Orient the gasket so that the more squishable hollow side of the gasket faces the door, and check that the length is sufficient to fill ths entire channel. The less compressible side goes into the channel, which requires some skill and strength to seat well. The flat portion of the more or less square gasket has two edges to it. What works best is to put the edge that is toward the inside of the dishwasher into the channel with your fingers, and then press in the other edge firmly with the small spatula of about 2 or 2and 1/2 inches until you can no longer see that edge. This is the visual indication it is seated. in the corners you may only be able to use a corner of the spatula.

Well, I haven't gotten the right part yet. I'm such an idiot that I've ordered the wrong part twice now. So, figuring that 3's a charm, I'm going to try to get the right part now. I do have to say that Part Select has made it amazingly easy to return the parts. And both of the first 2 (wrong) parts arrived within 2 days of ordering. I'm pretty impressed with this company. Now, if I can just order the right part, I can tell you how the installation went!

I pulled the old rubber gasket off put the new one on and then took the back end of a kitchen knife to push it in all around the door to create a solid seal

unscrewed 7 torx screws with the impact driver. removed the motor from the bracket. comes out pretty easily. moved wires aside. Pulled the wires off the motor using the pliers- one came off very hard, note where they go, corroded in place. installed the new motor by easily re-attaching the leads. Biggest surprise was that there were 2 motors. I initially replaced the lower one which did not solve the problem. When I replaced the upper, it worked. Not sure of the function of the lower motor. The upper one clearly fits into a slot which seems to attach to the doors.
