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

  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

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.

First, I made sure the electrical power was turned off. Opened door to the down position, removed the screws holding the control panel. Remove two torque screws holding handle in place. Remove electrical connectors and put on new handle just like they were on the bad handle. Then reversed the procedure and secured in place. Turned electrical power back on, handle working properly now. 20 minutes max on time to replace.

Found breaker switch for dishwisher and turned it off. Removed one screw on each side of bottom of door. Front panel slid off. Removed the two wires on dispenser, then took out the six screws. Pulled entire piece out from the inside of door. Put in new dispenser, attached wires (white on inside and red on outside). Put in the six screws and including the one with the little hook that holds the wires. Slid the front door panel back on and replaced the two screws (one on each side of bottom of inside door). Flipped the breaker switch back on. Approximately 25 minutes. Very easy, thanks to the person who wrote his/her instuctions previously.

There was an excellent "how to" video on the internet which also pointed me to the part I needed. I did not even remove the dishwasher as recommended. I removed the lower kick plate, removed the power connector at the leaking input, removed the bad nut and installed the new nut.

I removed the 2 screws that hold the dishwasher in place. Slide out the unit just far enough to access the brass nuts on the heating element. Pulled off the wire, and replaced the broken nut with the new nut. Replaced the wire, slide the unit back into place and reattached the 2 under counter screws. Done!!!

As a property manager in a small town it has been difficult to find adequate appliance repairmen. Being able to order the parts online and allowing any of my handymen install is a hugh relief. This has been a great ordering experience
