I removed the door panel and ran the dishwasher to determine where it was leaking. Ordered the parts. When parts arrived I removed door in order to get at the bottom door gasket, replace it, and removed the tube gasket and replaced it with new parts. The whole job was very easy for a person that's never repaired a dishwasher before. I also found that the return tube gasket at the top of the dishwasher was leaking and repaired that by making a new gasket out of a flat piece of rubber and an o-ring. All leaks have been repaired. With regards to the return tube issue, it may have only been loose and if so, I could have just tightened the return tube outlet and gotten the same results. The people at this site were excellent. Thank You
Found a YouTube video and easily changed out gaskets.
Just pulled the old gasket out and popped in the new. I did trim it too shrt however so be careful not to do that.
first open door and removed 8 philips screws, removed inside panel and changed lower door gasket.then reassembled in reverse order of removal.second used plyers removed tub gasket matched up to new gasket and cut to length to match old gasket.clean track on tub and install same way old gasket was in, make sure gasket is seated evenly.clean up and run dishwasher check for leaks.
First I pulled out the old gasket, used this to measure for the new gasket, cut to right length, pushed new gasket into the track and washed a load of dishes. No leaks! This took about 2 minutes to complete.
The main tub gasket just pulled out by hand - no tools needed. Installing new one was just as easy, Just remember the wide part of the gasket sits in the bottom of the groove and cut off the excess with scissors.Door gasket - not so easy. The six screws near the top of the door do NOT need to be removed, only the two (phillips) mid-way down the side. Remove the bottom panel by pulling down (it sits in a pocket of the top panel). The bottom door gasket just pulls out and insert the new one by hand (can be tight). Re-install bottom panel by sliding up into the top panel pocket, aligning the holes and screw home. Normally,, you would be done but not in my case. The slow drip was still there. Investigation revealed that under the bottom panel (yes, we took it off again) is a tie-wrap holding wires at the bottom of the door that collects condensed steam and allows it to drip outside of the bottom plastic tray onto the floor. We thought that the tie-wrap was unnessesary and cut it off. Test drive- No more drips!
Unscrewed the front. Took out 2 screws on the old latch and put in the new one. Fast and easy.
After watching a wash cycle with the front cover off, I noticed water coming out from the bottom of the pan, under the Gasket. Pulled the gasket down out of the slit and reinstalled the new one exactly as the old one came off, with the wiper angled the correct direction.
I want to praise your company for getting the part to me quickly and the parts being right. I have found this most difficult for many online companies. Thank You Tom Z
Orderd new gasket which arrived extremely fast, old gasket just pulls out , installed new one same direction as the old gasket fit, stopped leak. Thanks!
Had a leak, due to the factory gasket was 1/2 " to short. Pulled out old one, installed new one, and trimed to fit. Took less the 5 minutes.
pulled the old gaskets out, put the new ones in. Just like that. No tools, nothing. I would compare it in difficulty to the process of paying for gas at the pump and then filling your car up.
removed old gasket by hand, installed new gasket with hands only. p.s. great doing business with you,thanks.
My Son used needle nose pliers to remover the old gasket, then starting on the lower right side, inserted the new gasket and used the rounded end of handle of a wooden spoon and pressed the gaste in place by running the handle up and around the top then down the left side. Used sissors to cut the new gasket to length. Door fit very tight. Ran a normal wash cycle and no leaks.
