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.

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.

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.

I bought the replacement rack which fits, accommodates the cutlery container but does not come with clips and hits the spray arm. Too bad they can't make an arch over the arm. Also, why did they stop making the clips for the rack pieces? We are trying ties for now. But have to be carful to not hit the spray arm.

Replaced the inner door foam insulation strip and door gasket.I believe the "secret" is not to push the door gasket in all the way. Let the door find its own seat. Problem fixed.
