1. Bottom door gasket removed very easy by grabbing left corning and pulling out. Starting with notch on right side, slide the hard plastic side up at a slight angle to catch the slot the gasket will seat in. Slowly moving toward the left, push gasket into seated position. Notch in gasket will make sure it is in correct position. Push gasket all the way in so that it is flush with bottom edge of door. Watch when first sliding gasket in, it has to g at a slight up angle or it will fall into an empty space.
2. Remove Tub gasket by gripping one side and pulling out. Replace in same fashion making sure the angled wedge of gasket is first part that lays flat in slot. Working from one side to the other, make sure the gasket seats completely. Trim excess if necessary.

After having a repairman out to changing the door handle and seeing how easy it was...I decided to try to fix the spring issue myself. I am fairly confident with most small fix it items in our house, so decided to order the original spring & linkage. The website was pretty self-explanatory, but wished someone hinted that when you have one broken spring, the other usually goes out within a short period of time. Note to others, ordered 2 springs & linkage and avoided another shipping charge. Do both springs at the same time, and will save you time in the long run. Otherwise, super easy to change out...wish all appliance issues were this easy to fix. I did not need to take of door off....I just needed to lay on floor & become a little limber. Other than that...super easy.

Heating element went out

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench (Adjustable)
  • 12 of 19 people found this instruction helpful
Removed the clamp holding it to the floor and
removed the c-clips holding element underneath
and put new one in. Hard part was figuring out
what was holding the element but since I still
had the schematic drawing we figured it out.
Saved a bunch on a repairman. After watching
my friend install the new element I could probably
do it myself next time.
