It was a hassle. We didn't have sufficient information in the user's guide to figure out how to attach the soap dish door which had come off back onto the door of the dishwasher, so when we bought the parts, a long pin, a short pin, and a spring (hinge pin), we could only guess how to put it together. The first two times we tried, the pins and spring came off in the dishwasher during a washing cycle and disappeared down the drain. We had to call someone out who just ordered the parts again and said it would cost us $146 to fix, which I thought was ridiculous, so when the parts came, I tried again. This time I figured it out by using a screw driver and hammer to knock the short pin into place while holding the door in place. The door appears to work fine now but, I have yet to use the dishwasher to know for sure.
