How to replace the bottom door seal on an Electrolux Dishlex dishwasher DX303WK.
To Note: Before you begin, make sure you have the correct door seal for your dishwasher model. Before beginning any repairs, switch off the dishwasher and unhook it from the power source.
- New door seal compatible with Electrolux Dishlex DX303WK
- Clean cloth
Step 1: Remove the Old Door Seal
- Open the dishwasher door and locate the existing door seal around the bottom edge of the tub.
- Gently peel back the old door seal from the edge of the tub. It should be secured with a rubber gasket or clips.
- Use a screwdriver or pliers, if necessary, to remove any retaining clips or fasteners holding the old seal in place.
Step 2: Clean the Area
- Once the old door seal is removed, clean the area around the edge of the tub thoroughly. Use a clean cloth to remove any dirt, debris, or residue.
Step 3: Install the New Door Seal
- Take the new door seal and align it around the edge of the dishwasher tub, making sure it sits properly in place.
- If your dishwasher has retaining clips or fasteners, use them to secure the new door seal in place. Alternatively, press the seal firmly to ensure it adheres to the tub securely.
Step 4: Test the Door
- After installing the new door seal, close the dishwasher door gently.
- Check for any obstructions or misalignment of the seal by running your fingers along the entire perimeter of the door. The seal should be evenly and securely in place.
Step 5: Reconnect and test the power.
Connect the dishwasher to the power source after ensuring that the new door seal is correctly placed.
Run a brief cycle or just check for leaks while the dishwasher is running normally.
If you run into any problems or difficulties throughout the replacement procedure, review the dishwasher's user manual or call Electrolux customer service for assistance.
