This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
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. . . . .
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.
did it myself, was a snap, old one out and new one in, in less than a minute.
Should have paid attention to the other posts. The job should have been REALLY easy. But, I decided to take the door off. That was not necessary. Turned a three minute job into a 30 minute job.
Biggest challenge was understanding where the gasket was located. I took a good look at the parts diagram available on this site, simply opened the dishwasher door, felt around for the old jacket, pulled it out with a nose plier, and inserted the new jacket making sure the orientation was the same as the old jacket. It went in fairly easily, and is a press fit. The dishwasher no longer leaks.
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.
I simply opened the door all the way and used pliers to grab hold of the old bottom gasket and slid it out sideways. Then inserted the new bottom gasket into the slot and pushed it in. No leaks for the new pergo floor. Half the battle was realizing that this thing was in there to begin with. It is a long thin plastic flap with a rubber strip on both sides not reallya gasket per say. Fast delivery and great instruction from other customers.
All I needed was a screwdriver to remove and replace the parts. Everything else snapped into place.
The machine was not used for three years after discovering a leak. It appeared to be coming from the drain pump. I Decided to reevaluate the leak for repair, with a little prodding from my wife, I found the leak coming from the bottom of the door. I Found the worn seal and I ordered a new part. I used needle-nose pliers to remove the old seal, pushed the new seal in with my fingers, checked for leaks, none found. Machine is back in business. My wife was happy.
First I read the online bog's such as this one, those instruction said it was an easy task to pull out the old gasket from either side and then push in the new gasket in reverse of removal, in from either side, but the only way the gasket can be installed is to lay it along the channel it is to be installed in and then push it upwards. Due to all they butter and grease that gather's on the edges at the bottom of the door it is nearly impossible to slide it in place, so to push it up is the only way that will work!
