This product contains both the door gasket and the door strike. The function of the door gasket on your dishwasher is to provide a seal between the tub and the door. The door strike serves as a mechanical actuator for door switch operation and provides door tension for a proper seal. If you notice that your refrigerator is leaking, the door will not latch properly, or it is not cleaning dishes properly, you may need to replace the door gasket. This repair is as simple as removing the old gasket from the channel on the edge of the dishwasher tub, and replacing it with the new one. This product is made of black rubber.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Only needed my fingers to press seal into the channel. Old seal pulled out very easily and new one went in just as easy.

Were these instructions helpful?
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.
First off I want to say thank you part select for being on the internet. I called my local appliance repair parts department. They wanted 30 dollars more than what I got it from you guys. Anyway I took the old gasket off, cleaned the area to put the new one on and it just slipped right into place. I think the cleaning took longer than replacing the gasket.
Had to call and place another order for a special glue that bonds stainless steel to rubber gasket.The special glue part number is:PS382760 Silicone Adhesive $18.82I ordered this special glue (instead of using something like liquid-nails from Home Depot because I had a concern about chemical safety of having a glue that might leech into the dishes during a wash cycle. The install instructions for the gasket (PS3418214 )does not call for having to use a glue to secure the gasket to the dishwasher. The install was really easy because you just push it into the opening all around the front of the dishwasher.
Gasket had a tear in it from utensils in tray moving past the gasket. Pulled off old gasket and pressed new gasket in place. Cut off about 3/4" of excess gasket material with scissors.
Removed old and installed new gasket
I thought the door gasket was leaking. It turns out there is a whole in the tub and I have to get a new dishwasher. I should have looked a little harder into it before I bought anything!
Replaced Door seal
Finding the model number was extremely difficult. Manufacturers who make it so hard to find should be shot! Without any instructions, it took some time to push the gasket into the u shaped flange that holds it. Certainly they could have devised a better system! My hope now is that it will stay and work for an extended time,
It isn't as simple as just pushing the new gasket into the retaining track. It has to be seated correctly by pushng the retainer strip all the way into track inch by inch using a thin blade tool like a butter knife. Very tedious and hard to see if it is seated properly without someone holding a flashlight. I had about 12 inches left to go on the lower left side but a 3 inch long strip of the gasket kept rolling over on its edge as it wasn't seated in far enough, but it was!
Door gasket was applied with the aid of other users descriptions of the process.
Gently pulled the old gasket out. Cleaned up the area with general purpose cleaner. Placed new gasket in place. Very Easy great do it yourself task no repair call required!! Saved $$$$.
Time and heat had deteriorated the door gasket to a point where food was collecting in and around it - I had to remove the old one and clean weekly. Door Gaskets are easy to replace, just pulled out the old one, cleaned out the slot and inserted the new one - Thanks!
Removed the old seal, which was torn in the lower R corner. Simply applied new seal.
Hardest part of replacing the upper arm was removing the top dishwasher rack (pop off clips on the end of the metal runners & slide out). Then it easily snapped together in seconds.The gasket around the inside frame was a tight fit, but pressed in with a kid's plastic spoon (didn't want to cut or damage the rubber). I also scoured and cleaned the door where it seals to the gasket since the old one had left residue which it stuck to. Works like a charm!
