I noticed some residue in the dishwasher so I decided to clean the chopper screen. I dismantled the screen and spray assemblies and removed the chopper. The chopper was extremely worn and the chopper washer/gasket was missing. I reassembled the parts I removed and as I was placing the screws in the screen assembly I dropped a screw into the impeller well. Since the screws are stainless I was forced to remove the whole motor assembly. Since I had to order a chopper I went ahead and ordered a motor assembly gasket for reassembly. The mistake I made was not ordering a drain valve at the same time for when I removed the valve to clean it the rubber separated. The dishwasher will not function without it. This is where PartsSelect really came through for me. The 2-3 day shipping came in 2 days and the drain valve which was really going to hold me up with standard shipping came the very next day! Way to go PartsSelect! Everything went back together just fine.
