Repair was very easy and the price was the best part. I called around to local appliance repair shops and they quoted prices from $318 to $440 for two replacement racks. I spent less than half my lowest quoted price at PartSelect. Also to note, customer service was excellent. One of the racks I received had some of the white coating missing, and they replaced without hassle. I would highly recommend PartSelect.

I overheard a woman talking about having to replace her dishwasher because the racks were rusted. I couldn't believe my ears. Mine had gotten pretty bad, so I went online to see if I could figure out how to replace it. I happened upon this site and it was the easiest thing I have ever done. I found my model number,(Instructions on the site helped me locate it.) located the item on the site and ordered it. It arrived within days already assembled. I opened my dishwasher, took out the old one and put the new one in. PERFECT FIT! It couldn't have been easier.

The hose goes from the water inlet solinoid to the side of the dishwasher.Remove the kick plate from the bottom front of the dishwasher. Disconnect the water supply to the inlet of the solinoid valve (copper tubing on mine). Remove the screws under the counter top which hold the dishwasher in place. slide the dishwasher out from under the cabinet only as far as needed to expose the hose(about 1 foot). The hose is behind the insulation. Remove the hose clamps from both ends of the hose(solinoid outlet and side of dishwasher)Remove hose carefully because this is all plastic. Install replacement hose and clamps. The new hose is several inches too short and will not fit into the upper hose guide, just bend it underneath. Be sure to put hose in lower keeper on side of dishwasher. Attach clamps, tape insulation back in place, slide dishwasher back under counter and install screws under counter. Attach copper tubing to water inlet solinoid valve. Run dishwasher and check for leaks. Replace kick plate. Note: I had enough loose electrical wire to slide my dishwasher out. If you don't have enough wire to slide out the dishwasher you should call a repair man.
