First, make sure there is no power to the dishwasher. Then I remove the screws that hold the front door panel insert to the inside of the door. Next, separate the red detergent motor from the rinse air/soap dispenser. Then remove the rinse aid and soap dispenser - there are two or three nut head screws holding it in. Then simply remove and replace the detergent door latch grommet and reassemble. I've run my dishwasher 5-6 times since replacing this grommet and have had no leaks. The dishwasher is working like new. It was a simple fix and the cost of the part is minimal. I'm glad I checked the PartSelect site.
