Warning:  Replacement of the door gasket requires the use of a very sharp "utility" type knife like the one shown below.  Do not proceed with this repair unless you are comfortable and familiar with the use of such a tool.  You must also wear suitable "anti-cut" type gloves.  Do not proceed with this repair without the correct items and previous experience of using these items. 

First of all, pinch the gasket to locate the plastic ridge inside then carefully use the knife and take care cut along the ridge on all four sides

Once you have carefully cut the gasket lift away the old one and the channel will be visible 

Place your new gasket over the door and into the channel, align the part of the gasket that looks like an arrow into the slot (see below)

then firmly press all in all the way around the door

Check your door closes smoothly and you have not twisted the gasket.  If you have simply pull the gasket off and refit
