I opened the door of the dishwasher, pulled out the old silverware basket, and then placed the new silverware basket where the old one was. The whole time, I was imagining how much it would be to call up and appliance repair guy and have him do this.

First of all and most importantly, shut off the power! Thenremove the bolts from the perimeter of the door with an allyn wrench. Next unplug the 2 switches from the contacts. I needed pliers to do this. Remove the handle and door assembly. Now just reverse the procedure, turn the power on and you are good to go!!!

Replace silverware basket.

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!

Basket Tray wore out on bottom and silverware would not hold.

Followed video. Everything went together fine, but leaked water around motor shaft seal. Read comments section on video and someone had the same problem. I had pushed the seal into base too deep. I pulled it out and reseated it. It worked without leaking after that. Bob
