Range/Stove/Oven Repair – Replacing the Door Gasket (Whirlpool Part # W10162384)

Hi it’s Stephen from PartSelect. Today we
are going to show you how to change the oven door gasket on your range, and it’s a really
easy job. All we are going to need is a pair of needle nose pliers. Let me show now we
do it Now to do this repair we are going to begin
by opening the oven door, and we are just going to locate one of the ends and pull it
up through the opening in the door. It might be a little bit snug in there, but now the
gasket is held in place with a series of little T pins, and little arrow head shaped pins
that fit down under openings on the inner door panel, so we can just simply go all the
way around that gasket and pull each of those out of the door, and then pull the opposite
end of the oval opening on the end. Now if any of the pins came out of the gasket we
will need to make sure that we pull those completely out of the hole, and we can discard
the old gasket. Now to install the new one we will start with
the first pin from one end, and simply push them into the openings on the door, make sure
that they are fully inserted into the openings, and so those little pins have a cross at the
very top of them that needs to be fully inserted for them to pop into position to hold themselves
in there, so we will make sure we have them all the way in. Now once we have them inserted all the way
around we will take our needle nose pliers, and we are just going to take the end of that
gasket, and push it down into the oval opening, and tuck in so it’s nice and flush. Now
the trick to maintaining the life of that gasket is to clean up any spills that may
get on that as soon as you can before the heat sets into them. Now you will also note
that the gasket is little bit thicker than the original because it has no chance to flatten
out yet, and that your door probably won’t close tight, so you may lose some heat through
that if you were to use your oven right away. So we suggest just locking the door overnight,
just to help set the gasket and your repair is complete. I told you it was an easy job,
thanks for watching and good luck with your repair.

  1. I had to replace my gasket due to the fact that I scrubbed it too hard and shredded it.
    I ordered a new one online and this video showed me that it is easier than I thought to replace it.  Thank you

  2. My husband refused to do this repair and said that we should get a repairman. This was a continual argument, so while he was on a business trip, my 15 year old daughter did this repair for me. Thank you!

  3. I have a 24" stove in a mobile home. I can't seem to find gasket for 24" stove. After watching this I am convinced I could buy a full sized one and cut the excess off when I get to the end, since a frayed edge is just tucked into that hole. Am I over simplifying it?
