CustomerDarren from Biddeford ME

Dishwasher leaked

First I noticed that the old gasket had disintergrated along the bottom. Next I removed the the gasket being careful to observe how it was installed. There are these notched areas of the gasket that belong in the lower corners. I think the notches are designed to help hold the gasket in place and make the gasket bend around the corner. The gasket made closing the door very hard at first but after one wash cycle the fit became much more comfortable. The heat probably made the gasket more pliable. Problem solved.

Bad door gasket-leaking, broken door spring

My door spring had broken and I was going to leave it until the door gasket failed and started leaking. After removing the parts, I got on-line and order what I needed. I found everything easier than I thought. I got the parts a few days later and put the gasket in first. Looking at it, you'll find theres slotted ribs at both ends. Those areas go in the bottom corners because of the "S" curve. Simply push in and voila, you're done. At first the door will be firm to shut, but gets better- NO LEAKS! As far as the door spring...you don't have to remove the whole dishwasher. Simply unscrew the bottom plate under the door and reach in, rehook. Piece of cake. This site is wonderful. All the parts and easy to use.

CustomerAllen from Madison OH

Water was leaking from bottom left side of door, and the door would not stay closed by itself, and come crashing down

Partselect.com was great to deal with, they emailed me information letting me know items were shipping with tracking numbers.
ordered on wed. received on Sat!
Springs were very easy, just put dishwasher on its side and hook to the holes in the botom of dishwasher!
The door gasket just slid into the grooves that were around the door.
Everything works great now!

Used my dishwasher for 1st time in months - it leaked lots of water from the bottom edge of the door

I ordered a new door gasket, wich is not very common for these type of dishwasher anymore, I installed it in less than 15 minutes. I turned the machine on fully loaded and the machine did not leak a single drop. It save me a bundle since I was considering buying a new dishwasher. THANK YOU!!

Leaked water from lower section of door

Very easy fix, it's the second time I ordered this perticulsr part and it once again prolonged the life of this dishwasher for just a few dollars. The door seal arrived in just a few very short days and was easily installed with no tools in less than 10 minutes. The web site made locating, ordering, and paying for the part needed extremely once again. Thanks

CustomerJeffrey from Avon NY

Dishwasher was leaking water on the floor.

I used the scissors to open the bag the gasket came in. From there it was just seeing how the old, worn gasket was seated in the track around the inside of the dishwasher. Pulling the old one out and snapping the new one in the same way. When I was finished, there was about an inch between the two ends at the bottom where the gasket wasn't quite long enough for them to meet. I was a bit concerned seeing the basin fills with water. So I cut an inch off the best part of the old gasket to fill the space. No leaks! It works great and was so easy to do.

CustomerDonald from Plymouth IN

Our dishwasher flooded the floor!

I called an appliance store and they said to bring in the model number and a deposit and they would order it for us. Then, I decided to go to the Internet. I Googled Gibson Dishwahers and your page came up. I entered the requested information and ordered the gasket. In LESS THAN 24 HOURS it was delivered and in les than fifteen minutes, our son installed it. No more leaks! Thank you for the excellent service.

Leaking out front

The gasket was easy to remove and easy to replace. Our story is interesting because upon calling SEARS to find the replacement part we were told they no longer make it because the dishwasher is too old (approx. 15 years). It works wonderfully so I was annoyed to think we'd have to buy a new one just because of a bad gasket. My husband has a knack for finding things online and eventually discovered your site as well as the original drawing of the machine to find the part number and lo a behold, it fits perfectly. No more leaks! Sweet

CustomerMichael from Snellville GA

Water was leaking at the base of the door.

Remove the old gasket simply by pulling it off. I installed the new gasket by starting in one corner and simply pushing the gasket firmly into the groove and working my way around. No tools required. My child could have done it. Problem solved. It takes two or three cycles for the gasket to "break in" and form precisely to the door. Leave the door locked a couple of days to hasten the "break in".

CustomerLin from San Francisco CA

Dishwasher leak

At first remove the lower rack to give more room for you to lean over the inside of the dishwasher then remove the old gasket tub 90 inches long make sure that you know which side goes where, so that it will be easy to put the new one. Then press the gasket firmly on the side.Now you can start your dishwasher with no leak and saves you a lot of money for buying a new one.

The seal in the door was broken.

I had to replace the door gasket but it would not go in very easy..So I put the gasket in a sink of warm water so it would be more pliable. Then it went on fairly easy.

Door sagging when open & sever water leak from door.

The parts arrived 20 hours after ordering -great service & the parts were just like like the removed parts only new. The old door gasket was pulled from its groove & and the new gasket was installed witout using tools. No more leaking water.The door spring installation wesa bit more difficult. The front bottom was removed with a nut drive, the broken springs were fished out, new springs were pull onto the arms and the cover put back in place. Not a bad job for a crippled, one-eyed 82 year old man.
