The part arrived in less than 2 days. I turned off the main electrical switch to the house. All that had to be done was remove two connecting screws in the back of the oven holding the heating element in place. Then I removed two connecting wires with needle nosed plies. I reversed the process with the new element, turned the power back on, and the element heated up and back in business. This was the easiest I have ever had repairing or replacing anything. The hardest part of this repair was finding a flashlight in my house that had good batteries!! Thank you for such quick and courteous service.

remove two screws at rear of heat element unit. gently pull element to expose wires connected to heat unit. pull connectors apart on each end (don't let wire slip back into wall hole). connect new unit to wires, insert back into holes and replace screws into back wall of oven. Done... Now that I have done it once, it would now take less than 15 minutes.

Detergent dispenser didn't open consistently

My soap dispenser latch was coated in grit, the gasket was deteriorated, and the spring was barely strong enough to open the door, so the door didn't always latch closed or open when it should. I followed the video and everything went exactly as shown. Once the liner was removed, I discovered the back (including the latch mechanism) was covered in soap residue and other gunk. I hosed it off on the backyard and resumed the repair. The dispenser now latches easily and opens with a convincing SNAP. I wouldn't have known how to replace the latch without the video. Great website!

Performed repair as to Video shown in receipt after purchase of spring plus we used a friend who has same dishwasher and has performed the same repair recently, video was easier to follow though. All you do is push off lid with a screwdriver and pop off as per instructions on video then unlatch spring from ledge and pull off post, then just reinsert new spring in reverse order or follow video instructions either way is easy and takes about 15-20 minutes to install

I ordered door cover kit #4387043. It comes with new door cover (lid), new pin, spring, latch and snap. Two problems I encountered was 1)with the spring - there is a trick to replacing it. I had to look up how to put the spring on properly. Go to YouTube and Partselect "Dishwasher Repair - Replacing the Lid Spring (Whirlpool Part # 8066018) " will show you the trick. Was a cinch after I knew the trick. 2) you must take door apart to replace snap that goes with the latch, so you might want to replace the detergent door first and see if that solves your problem without changing the latch. It is workable, but I had to go on line and look for diagram to put back together. Just frustrating but for less than $20.00 solved the problem. Good luck.
