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.

door the soap dispenser stopped opening

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.
