The bottom gasket slid straight out, after which I cleaned the slot a bit, and the new gasket slid in perfectly. The tub gasket pulled out by hand, and again, after wiping down the groove, I easily fit the new gasket around the tub and trimmed a few inches from one end. There is no longer a problem with leaks, and I think the door closes a bit more securely as well.

The hose goes from the water inlet solinoid to the side of the dishwasher.Remove the kick plate from the bottom front of the dishwasher. Disconnect the water supply to the inlet of the solinoid valve (copper tubing on mine). Remove the screws under the counter top which hold the dishwasher in place. slide the dishwasher out from under the cabinet only as far as needed to expose the hose(about 1 foot). The hose is behind the insulation. Remove the hose clamps from both ends of the hose(solinoid outlet and side of dishwasher)Remove hose carefully because this is all plastic. Install replacement hose and clamps. The new hose is several inches too short and will not fit into the upper hose guide, just bend it underneath. Be sure to put hose in lower keeper on side of dishwasher. Attach clamps, tape insulation back in place, slide dishwasher back under counter and install screws under counter. Attach copper tubing to water inlet solinoid valve. Run dishwasher and check for leaks. Replace kick plate. Note: I had enough loose electrical wire to slide my dishwasher out. If you don't have enough wire to slide out the dishwasher you should call a repair man.

I was ready to just buy a new dishwasher, I was sure that this leaking (flooding) was serious and I didn't want to pay a repairman big $$ to tell me I needed a new machine...So, I found this website and the "Instant repairman" suggested these parts and I saw reviews from other customers who did it, and I decided it was worth a try well anyway the repair was so simple and for one part there was even a video...The machine does not leak anymore and I am thrilled. For the Bottom Gasket just watch the video and the Tub gasket I only needed a screwdriver and siscors...just pull the old one out and put the new one in starting on one side and pushing in to the gap as you go, trim the other end as needed.

Purchased new drain pump thinking that was the issue. When I was installing I noticed the drain hose was clogged. Since the way out cabinets were installed by the previous owner getting the dishwasher out is a little more complex so installed the drain pump and drain hose just to make sure. Runs like new!
