unscrewed 7 torx screws with the impact driver. removed the motor from the bracket. comes out pretty easily. moved wires aside. Pulled the wires off the motor using the pliers- one came off very hard, note where they go, corroded in place. installed the new motor by easily re-attaching the leads. Biggest surprise was that there were 2 motors. I initially replaced the lower one which did not solve the problem. When I replaced the upper, it worked. Not sure of the function of the lower motor. The upper one clearly fits into a slot which seems to attach to the doors.

Seal shaft water leak on the "D" shaft.

Not well! Could use some guidance. I replaced the shaft seal, shaft seal washer, "D" shaft "E" clips, solenoid bracket, assorted screws and the pull solenoid. When replacing the seal shaft I moved the "D" shaft to far and it disconnected the lifter from the drain flapper flapper assembly and flapper spring. Since I do not have, and was not able to locate in my area or on line, a service manual for this machine, I had to go by a parts schematic that I received on line from Jenn-Air. Consequently, I wasn't sure on the reinstallation of all these parts. Since the plastic lifter can only be installed one way on the "D" shaft, it is believed that the flapper spring arm goes between the two prongs on the lifter. After completing the assembly as described above, I now have a situation where the dishwasher will not drain. The pull solenoid seems to work as designed, but when it goes into a drain cycle, it will not drain. Any suggestions, thoughts, recommendations or a copy of a service manual for this repair would be appreciated. Bill

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!

Because mine is a portable dishwasher, I had to remove top first. the sides and back are one complete unit. the torque screws are in the front, 2 on top, and 2 in rear. Then the panels can slide back to access the spring. Replace the plastic piece & hooked on the spring. Reassemble in reverse order.

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!

I pulled the old rubber gasket off put the new one on and then took the back end of a kitchen knife to push it in all around the door to create a solid seal

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!
