Does part # (8269296) go on the bottom of the dishwasher door?
Answer Hello Gloria,
This seal 8269296 goes across the top of the inner door liner. Since the dishwasher uses the air gap along the bottom of the door as an air inlet for the dry cycle, there is no seal along the bottom of the door. If water is sloshing out down there, look for stopped up spray arms, separating spray arms, or missing seals for the middle spray arm in the feed tube.
I need to replace the bottom seal on the door. Does the kit for seal, #8269296 have the bottom seal or just around three sides? Is the bottom seal a different part #?
Answer Nicholas, the seal 8269296 is located at the top of the unit. Gasket part number W10542314 runs around the top and sides. Looks like the manufacturer does not offer a bottom door seal separate from the inner door 8575895, if there is a bottom seal currently on your unit. Thanks.
