Question about Dishwashers
Serial 644419 PN
Door gasket was hardened with age. I removed the existing gasket which was firmly held in place by plastic lugs protruding from the gasket which snap into slots in the door panel. I have an identical Maytag door gasket 901403 and its lugs fit into the irregularly spaced door slots perfectly but I can't get the lugs to snap in so the gasket is held securely to the door. What is the secret? Is there a special tool or technique required?
Hi alan, the tool that works for me is a pair of 90 degree curved needle nose pliers (mine are a sears product). also, i soak the gasket in hot water for five minutes to soften it up and sparingly apply soap dish detergent to the tabs to give them help in sliding through. sorry i dont have a pic of the tool for you.
