Our gasket tore. How do you replace the gasket?

The gasket is torn but it doesn't appear easy to remove and replace. We purchased a replacementgasket for $150 and it did not come with instructions.

Its actually pretty easy.

1, Remove the top of the washer
2. Remove the screws behind the front panel with the knobs and buttons. set the whole assembly on top out of the way
3. remove the door of the hinge. there are 4 screws
4. remove the concrete weight
5. remove the back band folding gasket. It has a bolt.
6. remove the front band, its just under spring tension
6. replace gasket and install back band first.
7. work your way backwards from here.

Good luck

If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.

It provides critical protection for the magnetron.

You didn't mention your brand or model number, but since you posted under Oster, I'll assume that's it.

You can contact Oster via the information in your owner's manual or get their contact information from the dealer where you purchased the oven.

The gasket on the right hand French door is slightly torn, so I bought a replacement gasket. It's arrived, but I have no clue how to replace the gasket.


The gasket is easy to replace. Remove bins and shelves set them aside. Next at the top right hand corner remove the door trim cover pull it straight out and set it aside. Note the tabs on the inside of the trim are fragile. Peel back the gasket at the top forward edge and bottom frward edge and you will locate a hinge. Use a small screw driver to pop these hinges out. Pull out the gasket on that side first and the whole seal comes on out of there. The hinge slides out of the old seal. Just snap yer new back in. Do on door at a time. The trim pieces for each door are different. Snap your door trim back and check for propah opening and closing of door. Then party on!

If the contact foil is not completely torn apart, I will try to reinstall the cartridge. The contact foil should not be that easy to tear. You should also try to return and exchange it for another cartridge.

Sounds like the compressor has failed -- probably the valve -- tear down and rebuild is probably the solution, or replace compressor, or just buy another unit. My nature would be to tear it down and see what's going on.
