I'm going to reply to my own post since I can't get a reply from a pro. I decided to take the old gasket off and compare it to the new parts that I ordered from Appliance Parts Pros. I should have recieved a 18" and a 20" wire clamp, instead I got 2 20" clamps. The 20" clamp goes on the inside of the gasket and the 18" which I reused the old one, is on the front of the gasket. The only hard part is putting on the 18" wire clamp.
