How do i replace the door seal


First of all you need to buy a new seal. Once you have done that remove the door from the refrigerator. Lay it flat (inside up) on a soft item (like a carpet, blanket etc) to prevent scratching the door.

Next - gently pull away the old seal. Start from where the damage is and remove all the way round. Then thoroughly clean the area being careful to remove all traces of the old seal glue. Alow the area to dry completely.

Modern seals come with a pull back tab that removes the outer paper from the seal. A little like double sided sticky tape. DO NOT REMOVE THE WHOLE PAPER COVER IN ONE. Pull away a small section (either top or bottom) and gently line it into place. Gently line it up and when you are satisfied that it is lined up use a small amount of force to keep it in place. Do the same around the three remaining sides and when completed use a soft cloth and rub gently around the seal to fix it firmly in place.

When done, reaffix the door exactly as removed. Once on close door and gently press all the way around to complete the seal. Hope this helps and happy sealing.

Refrig door does not seal


First off, make sure nothing is stopping the door from closing completely. If the door is closing properly, then using a hair dryer, heat the gasket until soft and pliable. You can carefully stretch it towards the cabinet. There is a magnet in the gasket all the way around on the mating portion. While the gasket is soft, the magnet will pull the gasket until contact is made with the cabinet. Once a good seal has been accomplished, allow to door to remain closed for 30 minutes. The seal will cool down, and the new shape will be maintained. After that, close the door on a dollar bill. Gently tug the portion of the bill on the outside of the door from one corner to the other. There should be some resistance to your pulling. If the bill feels loose, apply more heat to the gasket in that area to improve the seal. DO NOT HOLD THE HAIR DRYER IN ONE PLACE TOO LONG AS IT WILL DAMAGE THE GASKET, AS WELL AS THE PLASTIC LINER.

Water level too high overflowing the tray and comes out bottom of door


Drain the dishwasher. There's a box in towards the front of the door. It's shaped like an oval. Carefully remove and clean that. Lift it up and down after and listen for clicking. Try running it again.

We have water leaking out of the left side of the dishwasher occasionally. About 1 in 3 loads will leak. Most of the time it is a small leak 1/4 cup or less but once it was a spray out.


One (or possibly both) of your door seals needsreplacing. It's more likely to be the lower door seal as these usually go first. This seal isn't visible like the goalpost seal that runs around the sides and top of the wash compartment. If you open the door, you can feel this rubber seal when you run your fingers along the bottom of the door on the inside. Be careful though, as there is often a build up of dirt down there!

I don't advise buying any parts until you are certain of where the leak is coming from. Identifying the source of the leak (and therefore which seal to replace) is relatively easy but the best way is to run a wash cycle with the front panel of the door removed. It's quite easy to remove, but you might need a T20 T-Star screwdriver to remove it. Sorry, I can't remember exactly what the fixings are on this model.

A simpler - but not always accurate method - is to check by look and feel. If the water seems to be coming from the sides of the door panel at the bottom when you run a wash cycle, it's the "goalpost" seal that needs replacing. These are easy to obtain and replace - they simply push into a slot.

To test the bottom door seal, run any wash cycle and, when it's finished, stand to the side of the washer and open the door. There is a white plastic panel under the door. Have a feel around on top of this. If it's wet you probably need a new lower door seal. These are much harder to replace as it involves removing the door panel and partially releasing the hinges. I don't recommend this as a DIY fix unless you are competent, confident and have good instructions - i.e a service manual!

Whichever seal you need, they cost around $30 / £20 each.

Please rate this solution if you find it helpful. Thanks.

Frig door does not stay closed


When you say that it will not stay closed, what exactly do you mean? That the door seal does not meet the cabinet, that there is a gap? Is the door warped? Does it appear to be out of line with the hinges on the top and bottom? Is the space around the door when shut and looking at the front pretty much equal all the way around? I mean, when shut, does it appear that there is about 1/4 to 1/2 inch of the cabinet showing all around the door when shut? Has someone swung or leaned or tugged on the door, or closed the door or tried to close the door and something was keeping either the top or the bottom pushed out? There are adjustments on the hinges, at the attachment points to the cabinet and to the door itself. You may be able to adjust the hinge plates in or out and up and down to make the door seal better. And the box should be about half a bubble out of level, front to back, or with a slight angle front to back, in order to help the weight of the door seal to the cabinet of the refrigerator. If the door is warped, you may be able to determine which way it is bent, out at top, out a bottom, side to side, ect. and take it off the hinges and gently attempt to straighten this bend. If you are careful, and can determine there is warping at the top or bottom, you may be able to "straighten" the door while attached to the hinges. Gentle pressure is the procedure, GENTLE, GENTLE. Don't get the BIG HAMMER out and go to banging away. Just a push up here, and a tug down there, and you may be able to cure this fairly easy. You must first determine which way the door is warped, and then move it back the other way. It should seal the gasket to the cabinet, not so much attach the door to the cabinet edges, but a firm seal that takes a tug to open. And no air gaps. Are the products inside the refrigerator "sweating". This is the drawing of warmer room air into the cabinet and condensation forming. The door needs to seal in order to keep the cold air in, and the outside air OUT. I an extreme warping, you may have to replace the door, or use bungee straps to keep it shut. which will be a pain, removing those every time you need in it. I would try and determine where it may be bent or warped, and gently bend it back the other way a little at a time till I have the seal connecting all the way around. Once there, QUIT. No more bending. When the seal connects all the way around, you are finished. Problem solved. I wish you luck and hope that you can solve this fairly easy. Remember, be Gentle. It will warp easily. And no hanging on the door!

My dishwasher is leaking... I have a seal but dont know how to replace it its a maytag dishwasher


If you are talking about the seal that goes around the door, it simply inserts into a groove around the perimeter of the tub facing. Just follow these steps:

1. Remove old seal by pulling it from the groove around the perimeter of the tub facing and clean the area to ensure it is free of food debris and/or sopa deposits. This will ensure the new seal seats properly. Also clean the facing of the door interior where it meets the door seal.
2. Take the new tub seal and locate the center mark. This is usually a small paint spot or small groove. If there is no center mark on the seal, fold it in half and mark this spot with your fingers.
3. Insert the seal at the top center portion of the tub facing at the center mark of the seal.
4. Push seal into the groove and work your way around the tub facing all the way to the bottom along each side. You can remove the seal and readjust as necessary.

Once the seal is in place, close the door and compress. The door will shut tight for a while until the new seal breaks in.

If you have questions, or if this isn't the seal you are talking about, please post back and elaborate more on what you need assistance with. Please include your full model number so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance. I hope you find this information helpful.

Amana ARB2117BW - Bottom Freezer Door Won't Stay Sealed


This problem was posted in the wrong section. My model didn't have it's own, so its in ABB1927DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - perhaps you could create a section for it.

As it turns out, I looked more closely at the baskets inside. We had noticed that if the top basket was slid all the way forward when we closed the door that it would close better. So I looked to see if they or the slides were out of alignment. They seemed ok, but then I saw that the way the bottom basket was hanging didn't seem right - it was not quite nestled into it's retainer slot. I took the baskets out and turned the bottom one around. It fit perfectly into it's retainer slot. I then replaced the top one (it was already in correctly) and closed the door. It sealed correctly the first time. I tested it several times after that and it sealed tightly. Closing the top door did not make it unseal as it had done before.

Washer door seal is loose


The rubber seal fits over the lip around the door opening. Carefully seat the rubber seal all the way around the door opening first. Then, place the wire hoop in the crease where the rubber seal fits over the lip. Insert the hoop with the spring pointing at the bottom. Starting at the top and work your way around the door opening to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions. While holding the hoop in place, stretch the spring apart enough to allow the rest of the hoop to snap into the crease at the bottom of the door opening. You may need a second pair of hands to help you with this. Good luck and I hope this helps you.
