My gasket/strike is worn down. How do I install the replacement so that it works properly and does not tear?
Answer Hello Lisa. The door seal part # W10542314 is applied with the widest (sides ribbed) in first. This will insure holding. You will need to center the gasket and make sure both lt. and rt. ends match any length or gap to the bottom of the tub for a reference point. It is normal that it takes a dozen times of operating to get it "worn-in" again. You will get used to using both hands to open and close initially.
Is this the correct door seal for the dishwasher Whirlpool DU1055XTVQ1? Thank you.

Unfortunately, we have no way to ship outside of the United States. If you know someone with an address here we can ship it to them and they can ship it on to you.
I have installed a new gasket onto my dishwasher, it still continues to leak from the lower left hand cornor, feels it is coming out of the door. First question, what is the correct way for the gasket to be put in, and what else might cause the leak. Does the gasket have to be formed for a few hours?
Answer Hello Kay,
When you install the door seal the best way to install is to start in the with the middle of the seal at the middle of the door and work around each side. You may also want to check your lower spray arm 8268332 for damage. Check for cracks or holes that could cause the spray arm to spray downward causing water rippling.

Answer Hello Judy. The door seal W10542314 is not hard to replace. You pull the old one out of the track on the tub assembly and press the new seal into the track with the V side facing the inside of the track.
