This gasket is found at the bottom of the dishwasher door and helps prevent water from leaking from the bottom edge of the dishwasher door. If your dishwasher is leaking water from the bottom of the door, first inspect the seal for food particles near the bottom and sides, and remove the buildup as it can stop the door from closing properly and keeping a tight seal. Check the door gasket for tears, cuts, or wear. If the gasket is damaged, you will need to replace it. Before starting the repair, make sure to disconnect the power to the dishwasher.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Replacing the door bottom gasket is a breeze, just grasp with a needle nose pliers and pull out. I positioned a small mirror inside the dishwasher so I could see where the gasket fit back in. I pushed the new gasket into the slot and ----done.The springs require that the dishwasher be pulled out from its opening after removing the screws holding it into the cabinet at the top of the dishwasher. Replacing the springs is easy, just remove the old ones from the the bottom frame holes and the plastic holder and put the new ones on through the plastic holder and then into the frame. Push the dishwasher back into its opening, square it with the cabinet and reinstall the mounting screws.

The gasket on the bottom of the door was easily removed by pulling it out after mobilizing it with a long nosed pliers. The replacement fit well and was easily pressed back into the groove the previous one came from. Much of this has to be done by feel rather than sight because the edges of the gasket can be seen--but the middle is difficult to see because of the structure.
Grabbed edge of one end and pulled seal out and cleaned the area of water stains and etc. , Then pushed new seal into place. . . . .
Bought tub rubber gasket and door gasket online. Neither came with instructions. I went to you tube and found videos that matched my model dishwasher. Only problem was the installation of the gasket for the door. it's plastic and the video said to put it in one way which I did but it did not work. There is a notch in the gasket and watching the video, as you're facing the dishwasher with the door open the notch goes to the right. Dishwasher still leaked. I reversed the gasket, with the notch to the left and that seemed to solve it.
Watched the videos online and replaced the gaskets without any problems. No more leaks.
It was a 2 or 3 minute job. I grabbed the seal on the far right side of the door (it sticks out a centimeter or so), and pulled it out towards the inside of the dishwasher After that I ran folded paper towels from side to side in the slot until they came back clean. The first time I tried to slide the new one in it just dropped into the door. It turns out that on my dishwasher the slot that the seal goes into is a bit further back than what you can see from the top. I lined it up again, but this time I reached my fingers into the slot and held it up until it slid in. Even with dropping it in the door and fishing it back out I was done in 3 minutes or less. No more leaks
Taking out the old lower gasket was easy. Installing the new one wasn't. I removed the outer door and slipped in the new gasket into the sleeve on the lower inner door and pushed it in until only a small amount of the gasket was showing. Closed the door and the gasket was NOT slightly sticking out as the video shows but was laying down on a curved plastic part. Opened the door and the gasket popped out. I really think I installed it correctly but it never stayed in place. Upon further investigation I noted different brands had the same problem (maytag, amana, ge). Because of poor design I have now called a serviceman.
Replaced bottom door gasket. - Loosen door panel screws, pull out old gasket and slide new gasket in same location. Tighten door panel screws and start machine to check for leaks.
used needle nosed pliers to remove the old gasket. Took the flat head screw driver to clean out the grove. Slid in the new one as shown on the web video provide by this site .
followed video you provided no more leak
After reading the instructions. The old part came with the use of needle nose pliers very easily. Replacement was just as easy. I just lined up the part and made sure it went all the way in, and I was done. Didn't have to call a repair service to make the replacement and saved at least $100 or more with buying and installing the part myself. Will use this site in the future if needed. Very pleasant experience.
This tip concerns the bottom door gasket. The information they missed in the installation video is that the slot that the gasket fits into is hidden. It is NOT the slot the technician initially lifts up on to insert the gasket. You really can't see it unless you take the front cover off the door. That's what I finally did to understand how the gasket fits in the door. As you insert the gasket be sure to keep it flat against the backside of the panel you are lifting up on, otherwise you will miss the slot altogether. Also, the way my gasket was shipped was a problem - it was sent in a small bubble pack and the gasket was sharply bent and kinked, making it almost impossible to install. Make sure it's flat and straight before trying to install.
Found a YouTube video and easily changed out gaskets.
As per enclosed instructions.
Followed the on line instructions. Repair went very quickly. Easy to do. Glad to have my dishwasher working again. Was worth my time to save all the money of calling a repair man. If a 56 year old woman can do it anyone can. Great part and fast shipping.
