I looked under and found that 2 brass nuts that secured the heater element through the base housing of the dishwasher has split down each side of the nut and no longer was tight enough to keep water from leaking around either end of the heater element. I powered down the dishwasher at the circuit breaker and then reached under the dishwasher and pulled away the 2 wires that were attached to each side of the heater element. I removed the two nuts and replaced them with the parts I ordered from partselect.com. I then put the appropriate wires back at the end of the heater element and ran the dishwasher to check for leaks. No leaks... it was fixed.

With a very upset husband. The wheels were difficult to take off, although after he got the hang of it he stopped breaking them. I had ordered 6 wheels and axles, should have ordered 8, but the ones he didn't break we could use again. Now, the old cutlery basket from the old rack does not fit into the new rack. Today I ordered a new basket after being told the manufacturer must have changed the rack. Hoping the new basket fits the new rack.

Since the old part had fallen off of the appliance, all I needed to do was reattach the new parts, by sliding the hose onto where the water comes through and then attach the hanger to the top rack of the dishwasher. It was very easy to do and required no tools and took about a minute to finish.

I replaced the rack of my old Kitchen Aid dishwasher which is AT LEAST 40 years old... maybe 50 but runs fine. I just unscrewed the wheels from the old rusty rack and attached them to the new rack and popped it in place. Very easy!

Cracked rubber water tube

The first step was to read the other repair stories. The tips on using the hairdryer to "warm" up the part to make it more pliable worked like a charm. A little bit of dish washing soap on either end and just like that the repair was done. (I had to run the rinse cycle twice to get rid of the bubbles)
I pulled off the old tube, which actually had fallen off by itself, and slipped on the new one.
I probably saved $75 on a service call. Isn't the internet a wonderful thing!

This product comes in a bottle with a brush like Liquid Paper. It goes on incredibly easy. A second coat might be needed. I wanted to prevent rust from setting in so I covered the scratches and dings. The paint is a little brighter since my washer is 10 years old but it still looks great.

With a screwdriver I released the snaps that held the old seal on place, cleaned the area and then simply snapped the new seal in. The remarkable part for me however, is that I placed the order on December 21st @ 3PM (in way-upstate New York) and to my utter amazement it was delivered to me the very next day December 22nd @ 9AM; in plenty of time to reach my wife's deadline. Wow-Thank-You!

Unplugged dishwasher, removed the 2 wires clipped to the heating element, removed both cracked nuts, replaced with new nuts from PartSelect, clipped on wires, plugged in and did a test cycle. Based upon service quote from Best Buy, I saved myself $125.00 for just the call out, not including parts and labor.
