Following the instruction video, I removed the door panel and the inner cover to expose the door switch. I disconnected the wires from the switch and removed the switch from the door. I then removed the handle from the switch and installed it into the new switch housing along with the new switches that I purchased from Parts select. I installed the new switch assembly, replaced the inner cover and the door panel. The repair was easy and took about 20 minutes to complete.

Replacing the door switches was easy. The video & directions are spot on. This did not fix my problem. Called a repair man. He came and found a broken wire right in the hinge between the main unit & the door. It was very easy to see if you were looking for it. Once you have the inside cover off, check the wire bundle that runs from the unit to the door. He just butt spliced the wire back together and I’m up & running again. He said this is very common in older machines.

Got all info from your site, Thank you. I replaced the Door gasket and water deflectors and i still had a small leak. Replaced the gromet and the O ring in the soap disp. and still had a small leak.

The hardest part was figuring out how to get the dishwasher out from the cabinet. Your instructional video said "no tools are needed" but that turned out to be untrue.

Followed the video on your site. Removed old gasket, put in new one...easy, breezy! For good measure, since we weren't sure where the leak was coming from, installed a new water deflector as well, which was also extremely easy. Out with the old, in with the new and no leaks!!

It was very easy. Simply remove old seal with a pair of needle nose pliers. Clean or scrap any build-up from old seal location and then push-in the new door seal. Close door and let the new seal form to the door.

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.

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!
