Whirlpool Refrigerator #et18tkxdn01 bad door gasket

4 posts in this topic

Hopefully someone can help me. I know I need to replace my door gasket but I am having a hard time doing so. The directions for replacing the gasket calls for the removal of screws holding the gasket in place. My problem is that on this model there are no screws! I can't figure out how to get the gasket off. It is secured in place by the inside door panel, and I can't find any way to remove it. Please help!!

You may have what is called a FIP (Foamed in Place) door. If so, When you get the new seal it will have instructions with it.

Basically you need to cut it off in one spot, then carefully peel the gasket out. You must be carefull not to cause the liner to pull away from the door, or your new seal will not be help in place. When you remove the old seal, the now empty groove between the liner and door, is wwhere you will be inserting the lip on the new seal.

Hope this helps, it's easy to show, but hard to describe.
