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.

Water leaking near front of 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.

There was a leak

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!

CustomerDavid from San Jose CA

The door gasket just kept falling out!

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,

Hard to get gasket into track

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!

Time and heat had deteriorated the door gasket

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!

Upper wash arm broke and gasket kept falling out

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!

Door was leaking

I pulled out the old gasket and pushed the new gasket in with my fingers and a little help from a flathead screwdriver. I went in fairly easily and now it doesn't leak. That simple. Thanks.

CustomerANDREW from VALENCIA PA

Dishwasher leaked on floor

I removed the old door gasket and cleaned the channel that the gasket sits in. Then I marked the center of the gasket and matched it with the center of the channel. The door latch did get in the way so I had to have another set of hand to get it started. It pretty much went in by hand just by pushing it. There was extra gasket on either side of the bottom of the door. I trimmed to make it fit perfectly. The first time I used the dishwasher it didn't leak. Unfortunately, the second time I did it leaked again. I am going to run it again tomorrow, but does anyone have an idea why it might still be leaking? Thanks

CustomerRosemary from Blue Bell PA

Dishwasher was leaking...looked on-line for possible solutions. saw your website and people with similar issues that they said was the gasket. I took a chance and ordered on to see if I could do it myself. I was very suprised and pleased. it worked!

Removed old gasket...started on the right and side and just eased the new one in the slot around the dishwasher. Just guided it in with a screwdriver and butter knife. I was very pleased with the outcome. I know it would have cost much, much more if I had called an appliance repair company. Thank you!
