My Frigidaire FPHD2491 is leaking at the bottom right corner. I replace the tub gasket (the one that runs around the left, top and right of the front of the tub, sealing the door), but it's still leaking.

I've seen some videos online of replacing the bottom seal/gasket on the door, but on my model, the rubber strip there doesn't seem to be removable, and I can't find a part number for it.

Any suggestions are welcome!

Unfortunately, the lower bottom gasket is not sold separately, it only comes when you order the inner door liner:

Update...

I reinstalled the tub gasket the other way around, and now, no leaks!.

The gasket has the part that pushes into the channel, and then a "flap" that seals againt the door, that is attached at one edge and free at the other. I originally had the free side of the flap facing outward. I reinstalled it with the free side of the flap facing inward, and that seems to work. So it looks like I don't need a new inner door liner with bottom gasket.

Excellent, glad you found that was the only problem.(y)

Thanks for the update!

Here's the tub gasket for your model, in case others need it too:
