This part fixes the following symptoms:
took the door off after several failed attempts, which is easy to do - 2 scews. Then it was easier to find the channel the gasket fits into.For all Frigidaire diswasher owners, after taking the door off, I realized it was the seal around the soap dispenser that was leaking, due to stripped screws, not the gasket. I rigged it with silicone caulk, but may have to replace that - looks easy, .

Lower the door and remove bottom dish tray. Feel with fingers the area where gasket will be pulled from (just below bottom door edge) Pull old gasket from door edge into direction of inside dishwasher. Insert new one in same orientation as old (small slit to right side). New gasket strip will seat into door bottom.
Took off front door panel with two screws. Found the part in the door. took it out and slide the new part in. My husband screwed the screws while I held the door in place. If I had known it was so easy to do I would have done it as soon as I got the part but I waited for my husbands help.
First I removed two screws that held the door panel on. Then I pulled out the old gasket, inserted the new one, replaced the door and screws and it was done! We tested the dishwasher and no more leaks!
The repair went very easy. Just opened the door , and pulled out the worn seal. Lined up the new seal and carefullly pushed new seal into place. Seal pushed in very smooth.
Used pliers to remove old seal. Keep seal in position, note the notch facing the hole. Align the new seal, press it in, the notch helps align. Mine slipped in easy
Removed front of door to see how gasket was installed. removed door for proper cleaning of gasket area, removed old gasket cleaned area and installed new gasket in holder notch, reinstalled door adjusting alinement, reinstalled door front.
Used pliers to pull out the old gasket. New gasket snapped into place. Notice where notches in the gasket are when the old one is removed, so the new one can be properly oriented. It was not necessary to remove the door.
Removed front panel of door, to get to the screws that hold the door on the hinges. Removed door, pulled gasket with pliers from bottom of door, not easy to get out because of mineral deposits. Had to push quite hard to get new gasket in. Put every thing back together and no leaks. I live in Alaska and I tried to order the part through Sears and they wanted $18.95 for shipping for a $12.87 part. The part with PartSelect was $14.92 but only $6.95 for shipping. I ordered the part on a Tuesday and recevied it on that Friday. We in Alaska get very tired of companies thinking we live on another planet. Thank you PartSelect.
First of all, I got the part 24 hours after I ordered it. That in it self was a feat. Second, I followed everyone elses instructions, pulled the old gasket out with a pair of needle nose pliers, cleaned the area as good as I could, found the notch for the slot on the gasket to slide into and viola...it slid in and stayed in. No more leakage whatsoever! Thanks for all of the tips!
We received the part in just a day or two so thank you for quick delivery. The base of the dishwasher door was leaking...not the actual gasket but a long strip at the base of the door had separated. With the help of a talented neighbor, my husband and our good neighbor pulled the dishwasher out from its installed place, took off the door and found a screw which needed a star-shaped screwdriver. Fortinately another neighbor had just the right tool....so screw was removed, old strip pulled out, new strip slid into place, door re-attached, dishwasher shoved back into place and anchored as though everyone knew what they wre doing! It works fine now....a small leak continued the first few washings but all is perfect now. We hope it lasts....and lasts.....and lasts! Thanks. Happy Wife
Simply pulled old gasket out with hand, and slid the new one in place!
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. . . . .
