First replaced the door seal, that slowed it down substantially, but not totally. Next replaced inner door foam insulation strip and that took care of it, no more leaks. There was some corrosion evident after I scraped off the old strip, sanded that smooth with emery sandpaper and then installed new strip. Job done!

Received the parts within two days. Watched the video and it explained everything. Found it hard to believe how easy it would be, and it was very easy. Cleaning up the door in preparation to installing the new gasket took longer than the gasket installation. The gasket just pressed in the channel, frankly I was surprised that the door inner shield did not have to be removed. The water deflector just pulled off and slipped on (probably took 30 secends. Ran the dishwasher a few times, and no leaks. They had cited that the majority of leaks were due to the gasket, and it was right on. Like the dishwasher and can go for another 12 years.

I think anytime the motor needs to come out of an older dishwasher, it would be wise to replace the main gasket that goes around the motor at the same time.

The rubber around the door is corroded causing water to leak,

Well, I haven't gotten the right part yet. I'm such an idiot that I've ordered the wrong part twice now. So, figuring that 3's a charm, I'm going to try to get the right part now. I do have to say that Part Select has made it amazingly easy to return the parts. And both of the first 2 (wrong) parts arrived within 2 days of ordering. I'm pretty impressed with this company. Now, if I can just order the right part, I can tell you how the installation went!

Took the dishwasher apart, then went the website and found an extra part. The discharge pump housing had broken into two parts. Order the patrs needed, they came in two days and put the dishwasher back together. It was easy with the help of the website and runs like almost new

First I turned off the fuse and h2o, then replaced the intake valve. This was tricky b/c there is very little room underneath to maneuver the wrench. I had my son watch to see if h2o came out of the intake hose while I turned the h2o on and off from the main valve. Knowing I had h2o, I replaced the intake valve and turned on the machine. Still not working properly. Next, I ordered a new float and fill switch (the little computer chip looking thing). Replacing those was a snap. Remove a couple screws, replace the switch, screw back in place. The float was even easier, using pliers, I removed the nut from the float stem underneath, then simply pulled out the old float and dropped in the new. While keeping the door slightly ajar and holding the float down in place, I pushed the securing nut back into place. Again, I started the dishwasher, and again it did not fill. Frustrated, I removed the intake valve again. I used a wooden skewer to pull out some sediment that had been in the intake line (my son did not pick up on the irregular h2o flow during the initial test). Put the valve back in place again and viola, it works perfectly!
