Removed the old valve after disconnecting the drain, water line and electric connection to get to the spot of the leak. Valve was easy to reinstall to power and filler tube, as were the hard connection to power and the drain, but when it came to aligning the copper water line to the valve with a compression fitting under the machine, it was impossible to get the alignment correct with the fine threads on the compression fitting. I loosened the valve from the frame and then was easily able to thread the compression fitting to the valve and then put the holding screw on the valve back in place. That knowledge would have saved me half the installation time and a lot of frustration trying to get the compression fitting to thread!

Dishes not clean on top rack. Very little water spraying.

I followed the "Installation Video for Chopper Assembly". No problems except chopper cover was hard to remove. Be careful to install new part with gear engaged and screen correctly inserted in grove. See my pic of old clogged screen/broken chopper.

Read comments on-line here. Then removed both drawers, removed one screw from top filler tube. Gently pulled tube down just enough to remove small "button", after first putting a cloth over entire bottom of dishwasher to catch it if it, or screw, fell. Button goes in "pointy side" down. Squeezed new spinner onto button until it "popped" on. Replaced top screw, drawers and ran a load. Worked perfectly. Button was worn out. Would be nice if only button could be purchased.

Machine cycled erratically, then died

Turn off power at breaker. Mine on same breaker as disposal. Removed the twelve torx head screws from inside of door (see the video on replacing the bi-metal fuse). Removed fuse from board, then removed spade connectors to test fuse with multimeter. Blown. Board is snapped in place. Remove the two plugs from the front side of board, the four plugs from the bottom and the ribbon cable. Used a screwdriver to gently bend clips holding board in place at the ribbon cable end of the board and lift out. Examination showed burned area around pin P4, the door neutral pin. Installed new board, re-connected all wires and ribbon cable. Installed new bi-metal fuse just like in video, reassembled door. Turned breaker on, ran normal cycle. Perfect. Wife thinks I'm a genius. Partselect saved me hundreds.

Googled the problem. Found a really good video about how to fix it. Ordered the part from PartSelect and it came in a couple of days. Son and I fixed it and had it up and going in a little more than an hour. The biggest problem was getting it disconnected from the water, drain and power and then hooking it back up. Old fat guys don't do well lying on the floor with their head under the sink - was why I needed son. Works now just like brand new. I highly recommend PartSelect! Don't know what it would have costs to get a repairman to do it but figured our labor saved us a couple hundred $. Yea!

Our Kitchen Aid dishwasher was not getting the dishes clean so I went on line looking for a fix that did not include replacing the dishwasher. Found the Parts Select website, read a few of the comments and ordered the pump / motor assembly. Following the steps of others, I turned off the dishwasher at the breaker panel and disconnected the power. I found it easier to disconnect the water feed and drain under the sink rather than under the dishwasher. The dishwasher was held in place with 2 screws at the top, It came out easily. Warning: have towels handy as the water in the drain, inlet and housing will come out with the removal of the dishwasher. I did have to remove the upper spray assembly, easy, to remove the motor / pump assy. the assembly is held in by three plastic clips. When these are removed, the assembly pulls out through the inside of the dishwasher. Replacement was simple, just reverse the steps in removal. Be careful to center the pump / motor assembly. Having done this once, I would probably leave the dishwasher in place and change out the pump / motor assembly.

Un-clip "stopper" where the wheel-track holds the wheel mounts. Maneuver the wheel mount into position and slip the wheel in the track. Re-clip the track "stoppers" and you are done! YAY... Rack doesn't fall anymore!

Reviewed info from prior users and sat down with a cup of hot coffee to review needs. Found it easy to strip out old door gasket. Compared it to the new gasket and made sure i understood which side went into the channel.Then cleaned up that channel with soap and rinsed and dried it carefully. Installed new gasket in just a few more minutes. Did not need the new strike plate. And as part of the cleanup and test I added 2 cups of vinegar which removed some of the build up of calcium deposits. I'll do that again another time or two until it cleans it all out. Voila, dry floor and a happy family! Many thanks, Dave
