Note: I also purchased the main conduit part (PartSelect #: PS958967).

My repair is pretty much the same as the previous poster from TX. The RING NUT W/GASKET part seems to wear easily on this GE dishwasher.

Disconnected dishwasher from electrical. You have to remove the rear lower brace panel in order to remove the main conduit. The bottom end of the main conduit is clamped to a hose.

Installed the new main conduit and o-ring, screwed RING NUT W/GASKET onto upper end of main conduit. I tightened the ring nut with the wrench to make sure I got a good seal without over tightening.

I had to use a new hose clamp to reattach the lower end of the main conduit.

Reinstalled brace panel, reconnected electric, and tested.

It was an easy fix, the parts did not cost too much. I'm glad I fixed it rather than paying some repairman $$. I purchased an extra RING NUT W/GASKET in case it deteriorates again.
