Old whirlpool soap dispenser latch wasn't working

Bought a house and with it can an old whirlpool dishwasher in where the soap dispenser lid would latch, as the latch itself was gone. Ordered the latch from part select and used the installation video to switch the latch out. Only problem I came across was that the torx screws at top of he door were free spinning. Ended up using a flat head for leverage to finally get the screws out. Everything works perfectly for once.

You need a properly sized hex (Allen) wrench to get the screws out. Basically simple: remover bottom roller tray, unscrew large plastic holding bolt, remove lower spray arm, unscrew bolts (be sure the wrench is sized right or you might strip the heads), and replace gasket; then reverse procedure. Chances are if the gasket was bad, it will be very obvious (out of circular slot and stretched).

Noticed an excessive slack/wobble in bottom spray arm. Found video on Part Select website describing the exact model number of dishwasher and how to replace bottom washer arm bearings. Again found part breakdown of assembly on PS website and ordered the part. Received the parts the next day. Replaced bottom bearings on spray arm per video. Took all of about 20 minutes. Wife tested dishwasher with a load of dishes. Works like new. I will personally recommend Part Select to anyone doing a home appliance repair. Again Thanks.

Dishwasher wasn't cleaning thoroughly, although it seemed to be operating properly. The wife was demanding a new machine.

The upper and lower arms seemed to not spin freely enough, although the plastic bearings looked okay. I went ahead and bought new ones, as well as the little spinner which attaches inside the top of the machine. They spin a lot better, and after teaching the kids how to put in utensils so they don't slip through the rack and block the spinning arm, the dishes are coming out much cleaner. $30 for parts and shipping, and so far so good!

Made sure the power and water were not connected to the dishwasher. Removed the bottom panel. Unhooked the old part. Put some plumber's tape around the threads, hooked it all back up. Runs just as good.
