Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
this is the bottom seal correct ? goes along the bottom of the door ?
Yes. It's the strip that fits on the bottom of the inside door panel, not the seal the goes all around the front of the dishwasher body.
That sounds like what I've been trying. There is a J shaped slot that seems to be the correct piece of the part that fits onto the lower door. But when I fit the groove above it onto the door, I am unable to rotate the part so that the slot fits onto the door.
The screws have six-sided holes, not phillps head or slot. Is that an allen wrench style or some special Kitchenaid only screw?
Oh, well. I didn't get the answers I was hoping to get, but I'll give you a decent rating anyway!
