No need to use silicone just take loose the screws going around the bulb of the gasket and pull out old and insert new. Be sure to remove door from unit whole lot easier. Set on saw horse's and should only take a hour.

How to repair a lg dryer dlex3470v

See the groove on the edge where the gasket fits onto the door? As you peel away the gasket, you'll see how you need to thread the gasket onto the door flange so that the gasket will fit properly.

Use a silicone-based spray on lube to help it slide back on. Start at the top & work your way around the edge pressing the gasket groove onto the metal as you go. You might not even need a new gasket unless it is damaged.

Just got cx500 custom 1981 leaking oil when i start up from small hole on side of cylinder what do i do

If the oil leak is coming out of the spark plug drain hole , the inner valve cover seal is leaking or not installed correctly. Take out the two bolts holding on the valve cover and remove the cover. If the valve cover gasket has silicone on it , pick off all the silicone and put the gasket and cover back on. That should fix the problem. Silicone on the type of gasket can make it leak. If the gasket is hard or cracked replace the soft rubber gasket and put it on by itself with no extra sealant.

We have a 5 ring Lofra oven (all gas) and live in spain and the seal on the oven door has perished - we need to replace it but it seems Lofra UK has gone bust and from reading reports, Italy is not helpful...

There are many types of seals that can be used which are universal and not specific. You must check with the Kitchen appliances spare parts dealer for assistance. Take along the sample of the gasket to get a look alike type.
Also there are many available in shops that sell penumatic tubings specially silicon gaskets. Only the groove need to match with the heat resistance characteristics.

Water leaks from the door of countertop model on

My older model had cheap plastic type rivets around the window. Of course they broke and water leaked out the window. I took the door apart and put in a new gasket the siliconed the heck out of it!
Put dishwasher on a counter or floor and put a nice thick phonebook under neath the opened door for support. Carefully replace window with gasket and a bead of silicone. Put enough weight on top to press it down and seal it. Leave for 24-48 hrs. I've replaced the window 3 times and this fix has lasted 2 years now. total cost about $10 and a little effort. make sure you use heat tolerant silicone.

Refrigerator gasket cement (what is it so I can buy it)

ill assume there is a tear in the gasket? if this is the case you can mend a tear with regular clear(or white) g.e. 100%silicone. apply a little silicone n the seam where the tear is and close the door overnight allowing the silicone to set up. it will remain flexible enought to compensate for the door opening and closing
