This is the second time that I replaced the original gaskets. The first set of replacement gaskets were deformed and, even with using a hair dryer as the instructions suggested, was unable to get the wrinkles out sufficiently to get a good seal on either the refrigerator or freezer gasket. Under warranty I was sent a new set of gaskets, which did look in better shape (less deformity and wrinkles) out-of-the-box. I decided however, to soak the gaskets in very hot water in the bathtub and do my best to remove all of the wrinkles after that by laying them flat on the floor and using the hair dryer. They were not perfect after all of that "heat processing" but were much better than the first set I installed. I installed the second set and the results was fantastic. Both the refrigerator and the freezer doors sealed perfectly (you know when they are right when that look good sealed against the surfaces... and it feels almost like you are pulling against a vacuum when you try to open the door). No more ice formation along the seal and the old gaskets, with mold, are gone! My only comment is that the new gaskets don't seem as heavy-duty as the originals which were on the Maytag/Amana but if you take the time and trouble to heat the plastic with hot water and a work out the wrinkles with a hair dryer... they will work just fine.

Fairly easy. New Gasket had to be heated with hair dryer in order to remove ripples.Shipping carton was badley damaged and gasket contained within had been mashed--but was able to repair using hair dryer per instruction sheet.Satisfied wth part as well as timliness.
Loosened all retaining screws around gasket - removed old gasket - inserted new gasket and tightened screws. Little tedious (lots of screws) but very simple.
This is my first time replacing door gaskets so the process was new. First I had to inspect the in-place gaskets to determine how to remove them. On the freezer I took all the screws out and removed the "clamp rails". This allowed me to clean up the edges of the door and the clamps. Once I realized I didn't need to remove everything I put the clamps back on loosely and set the gasket. I had to tweek it a bit and use the hair dryer a lot but all is well. The fridge door went very smoothly based on what I learned previously. The smartest thing I did was use the hair dryer (per instructions) to get the wrinkles out prior to the install. This made the second gasket a breeze. Only took about 30 minutes. Lastly, where the gasket didn't seat right (only one edge about 6" long) i used some clear tape to "pull" it into place and after a week it was as good as new. Thanks
The door seals arrived in good condition, I followed the instruction and unpacked the door seals and straighten them out on the floor. I left them over night to climates. First I empty all the door compartments of food. I then used socket driver and loosened all the hex nut screws around the door. Do not remove the screws. Removed the door seal by pulling it out of the door seal clamp. Once removed clean the door seal clamp and door. Now start at the top and put the door seal into the top door seal clamp. Then work on both sides of the door pushing the seal into the clamp. Finally stretch the seal and insert the bottom section into the door seal clamp. Check and make sure the seal is properly installed around the door seal clamp and the fit is even. Start at the bottom and tighten the bottom screws. Then start tightening the sides and finally the top screws. Make sure there are no wrinkles. If there is undo the screws and reposition the door seal. This is an easy install but takes about 2 hours to do.
First I pulled the fridge out from the wall and turned off the water supply. Next I removed the access panel on the bottom front of the fridge. Located behind the panel was the water supply line for the water dispenser in the door which has a disconnect the I simply unscrewed so that I would be able to lift the door off of the bottom hinge. Next I took one screw out of the top hinge cover to access three small bolts and disconnect the electrical connections to the door. After removing the bolts I lifted the door off and took out the small screw holding in the bottom cam and replaced with the new one. After reinstalling door I removed all the small bolts holding on the freezer gasket. After this the gasket easily pulls out and began installing the new gasket. This part of the job was the most time consuming. After I had the gasket back behind the pinch rail I began reinstalling the bolts. Since the gasket was bent during shipping I simply took a hair dryer to the slightly bent parts of the gasket to get them to lay flat. Freezer now has a great seal and stays closed when refrigerator door is being shut.
