For Whirlpool Gasket-Ref (Part Number: AP4013369)

I purchased a replacement gasket (AP4013369) for the refrigerator door. It is not clear to me how to install this. Do I need to undo all the hex nuts that are underneath the gasket or will that take the door apart? At first I thought it was held in with adhesive, then I thought I had to screw through it with those hex screws, but now I'm just not sure. Please get back to me. Thanks Mark

ANSWER Mark, Yes, you will need to "roll" the gasket back and remove all the 1/4 in. hex head screws. Just about everyone has thier own way of doing it. Just remeber to warm the gasket before installing it on the liner, soak it in the tub with hot water. or set it out in the sunshine,if possible. Also, the screws have to be tight, but not to the point where the liner and gasket are "rippled", lubricate the hinge side of the gasket and the front flange of the cabinet with a thin coat of "vaseline" and make sure the gasket is sealed against the flange, before you do the finall torque on the liner screws. Good Luck and Thanks
