The door seal on your Bosch Maxx dishwasher is one of the most important parts of the dishwasher. The seal traps the water inside the dishwasher when it is running. If the door seal does not work correctly, you will start to see water leaks around the dishwasher and on your floor during and after the dish washing cycle. You can replace this seal with little hassle and a few tools found around your home.

Fill your sink with warm water and allow the new door seal to sit in the water for a couple of minutes. The rubber seal will soften and make installation easier.
Open the dishwasher and locate the retaining clips holding the door seal to the opening of the dishwasher. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws holding the retaining clips to the door opening.
Remove the retaining clips from the door opening. Use a putty knife to pry the old seal off the door. Start on the left side and pry it off. Once you get it started, you should be able to pull it right off the door.
Spray an all-purpose cleaner over the grime left over by the old door seal. Clean the grime off the door opening with a sponge.
Press the edge of your new seal into the seal groove on the opening. Reinstall the retaining clip over the seal. Work the seal into the groove until you come to the next retaining clip. Install the retaining clip.
Repeat this process until you have the entire seal and all of the retaining clips reinstalled. Close the door of the dishwasher and turn it on to test the new seal. If you find any water leaking, tighten the seal at the place that the leak is coming from.
