For Whirlpool Door Gasket, Magnetic (black) (Part Number: AP2980864)

Answer or Comment

Most door gaskets are secured to the door between the plastic interior liner and the door itself. You simply loosen the hex nuts, slip the gasket flange between the door and the liner and tighten the hex nuts. This door is different. The white interior plastic has no hex nuts securing it to the door. The gasket flange slips between the two but I am not sure how to get it in there?

Bill L. for Model Number GT2SHKXMS03

ANSWER Hello Bill. You will need to use a flat blade putty or butter knife to install the gasket 2177311 into the door frame. Start at the corners and work your way around the door, pressing the plastic flange in between the liner and the frame of the door. Hope this helps.
