How to change door seal - Kenmore 24 in. 17372 / 17374 / 17379 Built-in Dishwasher


Answers :

Replacing the door seal on most dishwashers is very simple. Just follow these steps:
\015\012
\015\0121. Pull the old door seal from the groove around the wash tub facing. Take note of which surface area of the gasket is inserted in the groove and which surface is facing the door. It may not seal properly if you install the gasket the wrong way.

2. Clean the area really well to ensure there are no food debris or soap deposits. Also clean the inner door area where the door meets the gasket. You need a clean surface for the best results.

3. Locate the center mark of the new gasket. This will be a small paint spot or small groove on the gasket (this surface is the side of the gasket that will be inserted in the groove around the tub facing). If there is no center mark, fold the gasket in half and mark the location with some chalk, or hold with your fingers.

4. Locate the top center part of the wash tub facing and align the center mark of the door gasket at that point. Begin pushing the gasket into the groove with your hands and work your way around and down along each side.

5. Make sure the gasket is inserted all the way around the tub facing to the point where it meets the wash tub bottom. You can pull the gasket out and readjust as necessary.

This repair should take you about 30 minutes or less to complete. Its simple and requires no tools. The door will be tough the shut for a while until the gasket compresses and takes the door shape. Do not slam the door if it becomes difficult to shut. Simply close the door and the push firmly at the point just above the door latch until the latch clicks. Slamming the door can damage the control panel components, the door latch and/or the hinges.

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please post back with a complete model number so that I may be able to provide you with better service. hope this helps you.

I have a Kenmore Model 665.15955792 dishwasher. Water is leaking out the bottom of the door. I changed the door seal and the defusers but it continued.

When the dishwasher starts the cleam cycle, water is pushed up into the small square holes in the bottom of the door and then splashes up over the lip of the door and out onto the floor.

A built in whirlpool dishwasher is leaking around the door seal, right side to be more specific. cleaned the seal, and along the bottom and it still leaks.

16 year old GE built-in dishwasher, model GSD900. Springs that prevent front door from falling disconnected. ALL parts APPEAR to be in good condition. I say appear in good condition because I don't know what they are supposed to look like. But I see nothing obviously broken. The 2 springs appear intact. The connecting cable is good. However one of the 2 springs is shorter than the other. It may be shorter because one is supposed to stretch to the other side of the dw? So number 1

I don't have a model number right now, but the front door on my Admiral dishwasher is leaking at the bottom. I have changed the gasket inside the door panel at the bottom but it still leaks. This is a rental property and the renters did a job on this dishwasher. I was wondering if they may have pulled another lower gasket off that I didn't know existed. Something like a windshield wiper. The seal I changed was a foam strip 3 x 22 approx. Thanks for your time, Joan

I have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Model 665.13773K600. It seems to have no power to the touch pad (top) control panel. I have already checked the circuit breaker and the power to the dishwasher. A friend said that it may perhaps be the thermo fuse cut out that needs to be replaced. 1) Is this true? 2) How can I remove the 1" thick control panel touch pad after removing the six screws- it seems to be stuck, and I don't want to break the plastic touchpad.
