The serial number of this model is SS4354302. I plan to order your door seals for both sides, which are: Freezer Door Gasket Part Number:AP3038637. MFG Part Number:2159074. Made by: Whirlpool Refrigerator Door Gasket Part Number: 2159075 MFG Part Number: 2159075. Made by: Whirlpool. Before I order the parts, I have to be sure I can change the seals myself. When I pull back the old seal, there are no visible screws, grooves or channels. Instead, it looks like the door liners (the large plastic things that are the framework that hold the shelves in) is pushed into the outer door framework, and the seal is sandwiched in between the inner door and the outer door. I do not see how I am supposed to remove the inner door liner from the outer door, thus releasing the seal which is tightly sandwiched between the two. Can you please help me with instructions BEFORE I order the seals. I don't to get the seals, and then have no idea of how to proceed. Do you have repair manuals for this model, and can you email the relevant pages with diagrams? Thanks so much!
Answer Hi. The door gaskets are a "friction" fit. There is a 1/4 inch gap between the plastic door liner (interior panel) and the metal outer door panel. There is a tab molded into the back side of the gasket that you'll need to slip into the slot. Heating the gasket assembly with a hair dryer or soaking it in a tub of hot water will make the work a lot easier.

Do you have the gasket for this refrigerator freezer door and flap door for the ice maker. Can you briefly explain how the freezer door gasket is installed.

As for the dispenser flappper, not knowing the issue, I would reccomend 8201756 to cover 99% of dispenser door issues. Thanks and Good Luck
