I removed the screws from the inside of the dishwasher door to allow access to the inside of the door. Once the exterior of the door is removed the detergent dispenser is easily removed by disconnecting 6 screws and unplugging two wires from the unit. The new unit slips in and is easily reconnected. Getting the exterior of the door reinstalled is a bit challenging, but once you figure out that the exterior needs to slide up to allow the catches on the door to grab, reinstallation is easy. A second pair of hands makes this easier.

The part fits exactly with no modifications necessary.

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.

After checking various forums and advice, the suggested repair was a new water inlet valve. It was easy to change but I wasted $30 as it did not cure the problem. Dishwasher is only 2 years old and is cheaper to replace then have someone come and look at it. So it did not fix the problem, but I recommend Parts Select, the price was fair and part arrived very quickly.

dishwasher leaked by bottom of door

Removed door covering. Removed door (it was nice to have a helper for this as the hinges spring closed as the screws are removed). Flipped door over, leaving the wires attached. Removed the bottom seal, and put new one in. This looked like it would slide out by a side, but it actually pulls straight down. It is notched, so there isn't a way to put new one in the wrong way. Attached door (again helper a bonus). Attached door cover.
