If your are just a tiny bit "handy", you can do this job in about 30 minutes for $30. The rubber gasket comes off very easily from its location, just pull it off, than, using a small piece of wood, I used a shim, insert the new gasket in, an inch at the time, all around the frame. No more leak, and probably over $150 savings. A plumber or repair man would have charged $90 just to drive to my house, plus part & labor.Thanks to PartSelect too, the part was delivered rapidly and the all ordering process was painless.

the gasket fit perfectly. I took the other one out by pulling on it and put the new one in by pushing it into place with me fingers. So very easy.......... and no more leaks!!! thanks!!
Followed others that described how they removed the old gasket and replaced the new one. As we looked at the parts for replacement it was somewhat confusing which seal-gasket was the rifght one. As soon as we read the stories of others we knew we had the right part. We then found the middle of the gasket and started pushing in the new one in place to have equal amounts of gasket to come down the side of the unit. It was fast and would recommend all to read some of the comments before deciding which part you need. Great info for the novice home repairer!
All I did was remove the old gasket with my hands and push in the new one. Couldn't have been easier. The part was exactly what I needeed even though it did not list Kenmore as a mfr on the Webpage, it was exactly the same gasket as the old one.
Removed old seal by pulling it out. Inserted new seal by pushing it into the mounting slots using a screw driver, then a putty knife. After installation of the new seal the door was hard to latch (had to push real hard to make it latch). I pushed the seal further into the mounting slot until it didn't seem to change position any more. The door is still harder to close than with the old seal, but it doesn't come loose when the door is opened and no leaks.
I received these parts on the second day after ordering.Took longer to take wheels off the top rack then replacing new ones and replacing rood gasket.Very easy to do had it done within 30 minutes. No leaking around the door and top shelf slides like new.thank you
It took approximately 4 mins. to complete job. First old seal was removed and was replaced with new gasket. Not difficult at all.
Removed the old door gasket and gently pushed the new one in place in less than 5 mins .The new one fit perfectly, and.......No leaks !The cracked upper spray arm assebly also was disassembled in 5 mins, and quickly replaced without any problems...All parts fit and worked great.
Pulled out the old gasket; carefully inserted the new one in the flange......tested the seal by washing dishes.....then cut off the littler bit of extra gasket (about an inch) Perfect; I should have been a plumber :)
Removed old gasket by pulling it out by hand. Attempted to insert new gasket, but it was difficult to get it to seat. Finally, I wetted it with water and a little liquid dishwasher detergent on a sponge, and then it seated easily. (No help from manual.)Finding the part on the PartSelect web site was easy. The part was delivered the next day, although I only paid the lowest S&H fee.
Took longer to open package than to fix. Just had to press the seal back in. Was very pleased how fast the seal came. Thought 60.00 was a lot for a rubber seal but that's cheaper than a new washer.
Old door seal simply pulls out of stainless steel "u" channel. The new seal is designed to slip into "u" channel. A very simple repair.
Diagnosed the problem was a worn out door seal. Replaced the seal and the floor is now dry.I can also tell the door is a tighter fit now.
Only needed my fingers to press seal into the channel. Old seal pulled out very easily and new one went in just as easy.
I was able to move the dishwasher from under the counter and had free access to the door spring cable wire and replaced using the pliers to pull the spring forward enough to attach cable wire. The door seal was pull the old seal out and push the new seal in the groove.
