Had to use a standard flat screw driver to pry off the old mount. used a phillpips head driver to fasten the mount to the spray arm and pushed the new mount in place.

There was a noise coming from the dishwasher that sounded like a loose part. Kind of a loud rattle.

I had to remove the baskets, spray assemblies (no tools needed) and disassemble the section of the pump that contained the chopper assembly. (removing three Torx screws)
I had to remove a part of the old chopper that had gone into the pump, but I was lucky that a magnet grabbed it so I didn't have to disassemble the pump.
The total repair was not difficult. The only problem was access (hands in the way while repairing difficult to see) and compressing the spring on the new chopper while trying to slip it into the groove.
The parts came in three days and they fit perfectly

The dividers were breaking off the top rack of our dishwasher. Order new rack and installed in minutes. Works great.

I removed the old gasket simply by pulling on it. I compared its length to the length of the new gasket, figuring there would be some trimming to do -- there wasn't. The replacement was exactly the same.
I placed a mark on the center of the new gasket, and marked the center of the mounting groove. I aligned the two marks, and pushed the new gasket into the groove, starting at the center, and worked my way out towards the two ends. After getting a majority of the new gasket to seat by hand, I GENTLY used the tip of a slotted screwdriver to ensure that the New Gasket was completely snapped into place.
The fit was perfect, and no more leaks. This repair was so simple, I'm embarressed for putting it off for so long. ;)

I did not get to repair my dishwasher using the part supplied by Partselect.com. I pulled my dishwasher out and found that the connector had fallen of the capacitor during installation. Happy to say that I returned the part for a full refund minus the shipping. Have bought from them before, and will again

Repair man said I needed a new pump and would cost $350 to repair. This dishwasher was only 5 years old and we only use about once a week so didn't think the pump was gone. Went on this website and read some stories. this model has a mini garbage disposal with a chopper and screen which gets clogged up and prevents water from circulating. You can clean the screen without removing the dishwasher. Remove the cover plates on the bottom with 4 screws and the smaller cover plate underneath. Remove screen, clean and replace. If the chopper is broken you can order a replacement for $21. There is another story on this site with a lot more detail so I wont repeat here.
