The corner tub baffle may also be known as the door baffle and is a part used on your dishwasher. The left and right side baffle on your dishwasher should be installed and replaced at the same time. This specific part is for the lower left side of your appliance, the right-side is sold separately. The function of the tub corner baffle is to prevent water from leaking through your dishwasher door. The function of this specific one is to stop water from leaking through the bottom left hand side of your dishwasher door. You will not need any tools to make this installation.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
This baffle fits the lower right hand corner of some dishwashers. It is black rubber and has a matching left hand lower corner baffle. It is recommended that you replace and install both left and right at the same time. It will become evident that this part needs to be replaced if you are experiencing leaking or lack of draining. This is a very easy repair that requires no tools. Open the dishwasher door and simply use your hands to remove the baffle found in the lower right hand side of the dishwasher. Clean out any dirt and insert your new one into place.
Door seal was brittle and flat.Not a hard job to do just having to keep making sure the seal did not pop out on the bottom corners of the door. The seal would tare easy so have to be careful. Before you remove the old seal on the bottom of door there is a 4 inch space between the ends of the seal. Mark the spot with marker so you know where to start placing the new seal.Baffles were orginaly put in place with plummer putty, do not use this. Get GE clear seal is the best will hold forever but will come loose with a good tug. easy to clean out when replacing baffles again. Do not use any sealent when inserting the door seal just push into opening. Make sure you support the door when pushing down on door to put the seal in the slots. The hardest part is the bottom corners the seal tends to slip out I found that if I streached the seal over the openings and continued on and come back to the corners it was easier to make the seal slip in.

Very simple job
I replaced the old baffles with the new left and right baffles. The website noted that 30% of the time the baffle would repair the leak. I replaced both and it did nothing, but I still have a heavy leak. i now have to look at more complex repairs or replacing.
The repair was much easier than I expected. Just remove the 7 screws holding the inside cover of the dishwasher. Pull off the old Door Gasket and fit the new one in. As to the baffles they just pull out and slide the new ones in. This part of the repair took 15-30 minutes. What took the longest was cleaning the various areas from the scum that built up over the years.
When I thought the dishwasher was leaking due to the drainage pipe, the repairman told me it was malformed door hinges instead.I quickly place an order through PartSelect online. With the picture of the parts on the webpage, I was confident that the correct parts were ordered.In less than 2 days, the parts arrived and the dishwasher leakage was resolved.
First I removed old baffles, they were filled with old, moldy, icky black stuff. I tried to clean them, but the ridges made it difficult to get everything out. I ordered new ones, ran the dishwasher without them just to clean out the unit, then installed the new ones, no tools required.
Replaced the bottom baffles on both sides. Obviously needed replacing. Still leaked. Warmed up door gasket and squeezed with fingers to soften. Lessened the leak. Adjusted the door latch. Stopped the leak.
Removed both baffles and replaced within a couple of minutes. No problem whatsoever in replacing the baffles.
I read the reviews for replacing baffles, which were a little confusing. I then viewed a video on the GE web site on replacing the part. Each baffle took about 2 seconds.
lifted out the 2 old corner baffles, ordered the new parts, set the new ones in their corners. No more leak! SIMPLE!
I examined the door gasket and found it to be worn. So I ordered the new parts and installed. The replacement went easily. There were other persons comments which said center handle on re-installing door inner which was very helpful. After replacing parts I did a test run and no leak...thinjking the problem was solved I went downstairs to double check and saw water dripping. I removed the botton facet of the dishwasher and checked underneath and found a small hose leaking. I ordered and replaced trying to do without removing the dishwasher ..well don't try to cut corners remove it as replacing without doing so is a pain and wasted time so I learned a lot from this experience. I found the comments of others fixes VERY helpful.
Easy out and in repair with OEM parts.
The parts I replaced did not fix the problem (lft & rgt baffles, gasket insert). They were very easy to replace but still had a leak. Next step will be to replace the door gasket that goes around the perimeter of the door.
