I grabbed a hold of the old gasket and removed it. I then took the new gasket and set it in place on one corner. I inserted it around the groove and with just one adjustment for length, I took the round bottom of a spoon to set and smooth the gasket into place. No more leaks. 5 minute fix.

I read about the repairs and problems also watched the videos on partselect web sight. It was very help full to read about replacing the door seal and still have leaking witch led me to pull the door apart to find the soap latch seal leaking badly, actually door seal was leaking too , part was here in 2 days and the dishwasher is back up and running now, no more leaks, I did run a fan on inside of door to dry out the insulation for a day and a half. Thanks partselect for great service. Jed from Wisconsin.

Removed the upper rack rail stops. Removed the upper rack by pulling outward until the rack rollers cleared the rails. Attached the new roller on the upper rack. You can look at the other undamaged rollers to see how they lock into place. re-install the upper rack by feeding the upper rack rollers back onto the rails. Install the rail stops back into the rail ends,and the job is complete. VERY EASY!

I had to call an appliance repairman to come fix it. If I would have been able to pull the dishwasher out, it would have been a simple fix. It would not come out and I loosened to water line trying therefore causing more problems.

leak only on left side of machine

WE installed a new door gasket. However the machine still had a leak only on the left side. Called a tech and he came and said the gasket was installed backwards. Apparently the original one was also because we installed the new gasket exactly the way the old one was. We are all set now.

The Top Shower Pump Hose (actually a preformed plastic tub) cracked and was leaking.

  • Customer: James from Ventura CA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I opened the door, and looked at the upper shower fixture ( a spining arm with holes in it) and saw there was a star shaped object that appeared to be the attaching screw device for the top shower. With my rignt hand I grabbed the points on the star and easily rotated them counter-clockwise, until the upper shower fixture came off in my hand. Next, I removed the top end of the pre-formed plastic tube from the top of the tub. I laid on my back so I could see under the tub (where the plastic tube is joined to the actual pump). The tube is connected to the tub via a rubber hose fitting. I unscrewed the rubber hose clamp and removed the pre-formed plastic tube. Disassembly was then complete and you simply reverse the procedure. Took less than 15 minutes. My diswasher is now back to working properly.
