How hard it to replace the magnetic gasket on a 2 yr. old whirlpool refrigerator?

It depends on the design of the model you have. If it is installed in the traditional way using screws, you can read how to do it using the references at the following link:

Refrigerator Door Gasket Information

If your model uses the newer 'foamed in place' door liner, replacing a gasket on it can be more difficult but is sometimes easier. The replacement seal should come with complete installation instructions.

Glad to hear it, thanks for the follow up!

BTW. Which type of mounting did your seal use?

Hey Dan O. Thanks for the tips,the thing had more screws than the co. that made the screws... lol. But it wasn't bad after I got the new gasket hog tied so it would quit flopping around, was about ready to get the come-a-long. but I won and its working good now guess by now you know what type of mounting it had... well going to sit back and listen the theme from ROCKY... again thanks for the help... nailhead aka Paul

You should try the older ones where all the screws have to come right out and the inner door panel off. On those you might as well remove the whole door from the fridge and place it on a table to work on. Then there's always a chance that the screws would have to be loosened again (on either style) to get the door plumb again.

Glad you got it finished.
