Hello,

I have a small leak (drip) coming from the front door panel. The unit is 5 years old and I thought maybe the bottom door gasket (possibly called an air inlet) was cracked. When I pull up the gasket a piece broke off. So whether that is the problem or not I need to replace it along with the gasket on the drum. I took the front door panel off and it looks like there are 5 screws that hold this gasket (air inlet) in place. They seem almost impossible to unscrew with normal methods. Can you tell me, is there a tool that actually fits these screws and provides easy access to the screws?

Thank you!

Installing a gasket on this one couldn't be easier-- it's not even a full mug on the world-famous Samurai SUDS scale. Here's the gasket kit for your dishwasher...  http://www.repaircli...-Gasket/1036104

Hello, I attached a photo of the piece I broke. It is the piece gray strip at the bottom of the inside of the door. The piece that broke off is attached to the bottom of the strip and seals when the door is closed. I took off the front of the door and there are tiny screws that are almost impossible to get at and remove. Any suggestions?

Tanks!!

I have gasket solved but it is the air inlet that I broke a piece off. I attached a photo of the nut and the 4mm socket I am trying. Socket wont fit in ther with the metal lip in front of the screws.

Another update: I got the 4mm socket on one of the screws but doesn't seem to fit. Surprised how complicated to get 5 screws off. What happened to the good old days. :wallbash:

Welcome to my world! Most techs keep all kinda crazy tools, like offset screwdrivers, in reserve for getting into tight, weird places.

For what you're dealing with, a ratchet wrench would do the trick.
