I went on Youtube to see what needed to be done to fix the problem and it seemed simple. I ordered the part and followed the instructions from Youtube: Turned of the electric to the dishwasher, removed a few screws to take the top panel off, a few more screws to remove the broken part. Slipped on the new part and screwed it in. Replaced the top front panel and screwed it on. DONE! It was so easy! Saved a lot of money. I am a Grandma 9 times and a Great-Grandma 2 times. If I can do it, you can too!

I took out the old dishwasher rack, slid in the new one. Nothing else was done and my spouse thought I had built her the Taj Mahal. Many repairs are nothing but cosmetic; the hard part is finding the model number and getting it ordered.

identified the correct part to order. when it came, I used a Phillips-head screwdriver to undo the two brackets that hold the unit into the bottom of the countertop so I could slide it out a few inches. once I determined which spring was broken, I pulled out the remaining part and replaced it with the new one -- hooking it first into the hold farthest back in the appliance and looping the longer end over the top of the swiveling catch device that holds the front of the spring. then pushed unit back under countertop and screwed two brackets back into place with the existing wood screws and screwdriver. piece o' cake!

Lower rack was simple R&R. It was about 1" lower height than original but I suppose it fits multiple apps. Upper rack removed from slide rails with clips removed with fingernails. The funnel & spray arm came off by hand but the old rack had rusted under the snap-on clips on the funnel mount base causing stretching & a loose fit on new rack. I drilled a 1/8" hole in the base & used a small plastic zip-tie to secure the base to the rack. Problem solved. No other tools needed besides the drill & it took longer to go to garage to use it than all else combined. Still about a 10 minute task. Under 1 beer in red-neck repair time.

Turned off water and power! Couldn't move dishwasher out, so access was a little problem. Worked to disconnect inlet hose. Finally unscrewed the whole unit, disconnected the outlet hose and the power connection and then unscrewed the unit from the inlet hose. Removed the ell from old unit, applied Teflon tape, and screwed it into new unit. (Tighten it really well. I didn't and had to take things apart again!) Installed new unit starting with the inlet tube, then the outlet tube then the frame screws. Turned water and power back on and tested the dishwasher. SUCCESS! My wife thinks I'm a hero.

I'm a girl and it was pretty simple. I pulled out the dishwasher, removed the bottom plate cover. Removed the water line to the inlet valve and made sure the water was getting to the valve (it was). Removed the electical connector from the valve. Removed the valve and installed the new one. Made sure the water was pumping into the dishwaser. Pushed the dishwasher back into place. Runs great.

The best advice I can give is to watch the repair videos; they are very well done and demonstrate exactly what to do. I played them a couple of times (particularly for the upper rack) and the replacement was exactly as described...very easy. The "close up" shots were very helpful.

Watched the video instructions; was really easy. Encountered one problem; removal of the washer blade attachment. The problem was mine; lacked the strength in my finger to pry the attached device away from the rack. Used a spoon to assist; once off; easy installation.
