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

Was so easy. I am an old grandmother. I looked for parts for the dishwasher and happened on this site. When describing the problem, I said "won't start". The part number came up and I bought it. Took about 3 days for part to arrive and less than 15 min to install. So easy and if I had problems there was a step by step guide on internet. I am 100% satisfied and recommend for anyone even if you are not handy.

Go to computer, log onto PartSelect, order part. Two days later, go to mailbox, open package. Go back to computer, log onto PartSelect, watch instructional video on how to install the part. Go to kitchen, do what the video showed you to do. Job done.

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!
