Just like the instruction video. I pulled the old gaskets out, cleaned the gunk that had accumulated and put the new gaskets in. The tub gasket does not require any cutting or stretching. Just make sure it makes the turn at the bottom of the tub so the door seals properly. The door gasket was very simple to replace.

Spray arm was melted on end from heating element in bottom of unit. Dishes were not being cleaned well.

When I looked at my prospective home for the first time, the current "month to month" renters made sure to tell me EVERYTHING that was wrong with the place. One of those things was that the dishwasher was broken and beyond repair. Upon moving in, my brother in law asked "Did you try turning it on??" We did, it worked and drained...so why was it "broken?" The lower spray arm kept popping out mid cycle, then would get melted on the heating units at the bottom of the unit during the drying process. I easily found and purchased the part from this site. Once it got here, I literally just had to pop it on, no tools, no mess. Fixed!

Very simple to repair, cleaned the melted plastic from the heater, received the part within 2 days and pushed the new arm into the 2 bracket clamps and it was done. Since this was an older unit they told me the replaceable part number and the price was very reasonable..less then $30 for the whole job!

The new tub gasket just sits right into the grove around the tub. Just press it in (grooved side to the back) all the way around several times and you are good to go. The bottom gasket is hard to see. You have to open the door all the way down and on the inside bottom of the door you will see the outer edge of the gasket going across the lenght of the door. Simply slide it out making note of where the notch in the gasket is located. Slide the new gasket into place (won't go in if notch is on the wrong side) and you are good to go. No tools were required for installing either gasket.

We have wood floors and in front of the dishwasher our wood floor started warping. We noticed it not getting any better so I looked under the dishwasher and could see a drip coming from the inlet valve. We have wood floors and recent granite counter tops so the dishwasher was stuck and had to hack saw the front legs to remove. Afte all that about an hour an half looked for the part and found it on your site for $25. We were going to replace the dishwasher but decided not to spend $700 for replacement. The part got here in 3 days and I was able to replace it very easy watching your video. It's been about a week and no leak and our floor is dry and back to normal. Thank you, Brent.

After reading some "Suggested Installation Instructions" on the Parts Select Website, I felt at ease tackling this job. After opening the door, I simply pulled-out the existing door gasket. The installation involved simply pressing in the new gasket with my finger and insuring it was properly seated. The only tool I had to use was a pair of scissors to cut the excess length as I pressed it in. REALLY APPRECIATED THE SIMPLE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS as I had never done this particular task.

water inlet valve was leaking

  • Difficulty: Easy

Could not identify the breaker for the dishwasher so I turned off the whole house. Turned off the water supply. Removed the leaking valve fairly easily - the clamp that holds it in place was a little tricky. New valve went on easily & again the clamp was a little harder. It was successful since there have not been any further leaks. Location of the valve & having to lie on floor to do repair was a factor in the ease of installation.

Got the parts in a DAY! Wheels were broken and worn causing top tray to slip off runners- new wheels were easy to put in-used the screwsfrom the old ones and banged out the job in about 20 minutes, including letting my son help. Thanks Partselect, you've hooked a new DIY'er (my son)
