Leaking from right front corner of dishwasher

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!

Door gasket was decaying

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.

CustomerKathy from Cambria CA

Door seal would pull out when door opened and cause leak if not pushed back in.

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.

The dishwasher was puddling on the kitchen floor--dog was innocent!

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 :)

CustomerBruce from Waynesboro PA

Door leaked

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.

Bad door seal

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.

Door seal had to be replaced

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.

Leaking water on the floor when it was running

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.

Door seal tore and door spring wire broke

Dishwasher was leaking, old gasket had small hole in it.

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.

CustomerJames from Raleigh NC

New door seal gasket pulls out when dishwasher door opens.

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 $18.82

I 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.
