Received the parts within two days. Watched the video and it explained everything. Found it hard to believe how easy it would be, and it was very easy. Cleaning up the door in preparation to installing the new gasket took longer than the gasket installation. The gasket just pressed in the channel, frankly I was surprised that the door inner shield did not have to be removed. The water deflector just pulled off and slipped on (probably took 30 secends. Ran the dishwasher a few times, and no leaks. They had cited that the majority of leaks were due to the gasket, and it was right on. Like the dishwasher and can go for another 12 years.

Because mine is a portable dishwasher, I had to remove top first. the sides and back are one complete unit. the torque screws are in the front, 2 on top, and 2 in rear. Then the panels can slide back to access the spring. Replace the plastic piece & hooked on the spring. Reassemble in reverse order.

Well, I haven't gotten the right part yet. I'm such an idiot that I've ordered the wrong part twice now. So, figuring that 3's a charm, I'm going to try to get the right part now. I do have to say that Part Select has made it amazingly easy to return the parts. And both of the first 2 (wrong) parts arrived within 2 days of ordering. I'm pretty impressed with this company. Now, if I can just order the right part, I can tell you how the installation went!

Dishwasher would run then turn off. When touching the handle it would start up again.

I pulled the old rubber gasket off put the new one on and then took the back end of a kitchen knife to push it in all around the door to create a solid seal

First problem was finding out whether Dishwasher had power at all, since nothing happened when you tried to start it, and I really didn't want to have to pull it out and disconnect the power cables at the box on the back of the dishwasher. Used the video instructions from PartSelect and opened the inside door panel and exposed the switch, then put a continuity tester (light with two prongs) across opposite sides of switch (white one side, black the other). With the test light on, knew I had power and was able to locate circuit breaker to turn off power to dishwasher, all without dismounting it from the cabinet at all. From there, followed the video. Hardest part was disconnecting wires from the old switch, which was slightly corroded. Plier trick on video didn't do it, and had to use large screw driver blade to carefully lever wires off of the switches. NOTE: Look at the new switches before doing this, and you'll be able to visualize how the wire clips slip on the switch connectors. Great site, and dishwasher started right up after the repair.

dishwasher leaking

very simple. I unscrewed the plastic surface of the dishwasher door, took out the old foam pad and put in the new one. It stopped the leak. A very inexpensive and very simple way to fix the problem.

Detergent cup would not open

This dishwasher is made by Whirlpool. It is sold under several brand names. My initial information came from this site. Throw the breaker to off. Use a #2 Phillips to out the screws that hold the door liner on. Carefully lift out plastic liner Use a table knife to pry and have an assistant to help you turn liner around and set a kettle or other weight on the door to hold it open. Wiggle the soap cup latch so you can tell which wax motor controls the latch. It looks just like the Jet Dry wax motor. The latch motor is higher in the door. You can tell which is which by monkeying with it a bit. Use this opportunity to clean all the food debris and soap scum off the door liner while it is off. Un-clip the two wire connectors and note which is which. Un-clip the brown wax motor. If you have a multitester, measure resistance across the two male spade terminals. If it has either infinite resistance or no resistance, it is dead. If it has something (resistance) in between, it is probably not your problem. If it tests okay or you don't have a tester, clean the soap scum off the contacts (on both wax motors and harness, put it all back together and cycle DW to see if cup lid opens. If it doesn't open, the problem is probably the wax motor. Order the new motor. When you have it, take the door apart again and install the new motor. Cycle the DW and if the soap cup opens, the motor was the culprit and you fixed it. It is a very easy and inexpensive fix. partselect.com is great!

Dishwasher won't turn on when door closed

I was told by you that 99% of the problem like mine was caused by a faulty door handle switch. I looked at my switches and found one side to be slightly burned. I ordered the correct part, thanks to your instructions on where to find the model number. I got the part the very next day, turned off the electricity to the dishwasher and replaced the part in 30 minutes. This saved me over $250 to have an appliance man come and do the repair. I called two repair places and each wanted a minimum of $250. My wife was really pleased with my repair job. Thank you for all your help. The dishwasher works perfectly.

Lower Spray Arm was broken

The repair was very simple, just unscrewing the plate and putting the new one on and screwing it back down. But the part that was exceptional was the shipping from Parks Select. I ordered on Friday and got it Saturday, which meant no washing dishes for me over the weekend. I was completely thrilled and will use Parts Select for any parts I need in the future. Highly recommend them.

Removed the old door gasket by pinching it and slowly pulling it out of its track. Used a small headed bristle brush to clean any remaining rubber particles from the old gasket to insure a clean track. Carefully placed the new gasket in place starting at the left bottom corner and working around the track to the bottom right corner. Perfect fit . . . no leaks.
