I firts turned off power to the diswasher through the circuit breaker panel. I removed the black tray at the bottom front of the dishwasher, removed the two screws attaching the water inlet valve, detached inlet and outlet water hoses as well as the eletric connector. I removed fitting from the old valve and installed in the new valve using some teflon tape. Installation is the reverse of the removal.

1. Pulled the upper basket out. 2. Removed the end caps on the tracks supporting the basket. 3. Cussed a little - used a small flat screwdriver to force a flange on the end cap to move far enough to free up the end cap. 4. Removed all 4 wheel assemblies. 5. Snapped 4 new upper wheels and axels into place on the basket. 6. Slid the upper basket into the tracks. 7. Replaced the 2 end caps. 8. Works like a charm.

The 4 rollers and axles needed to be replaced for the upper rack. First, I had to remove the end caps from the upper tracks. This was the most difficult part of the repair. I intially tried to pull the caps towards the front of the dishwasher which did not work. In the end, I twisted them towards the center of the dishwasher. Once this was done, I pulled the upper rack from the tracks, replaced the old rollers and axles with the new ones. Put the rack back on the track. Put the end caps back on. The repair took less than 15 minutes, for something that has be getting worse over the last year.

Drain Seal

The only thing I would add to your instructions. Hold the shaft tight while pushing the lock nut on. Pull back with a slight pressure, then push on nut. If you don't you could be placing to much tightness on the drain valve making it so your dishwasher won't fill properly.

Unscrewed the 7 screws on the inner dishwasher door. Removed old gasket (clearly not long enough to cover the opening...), inserted new gasket. Replaced door (making sure the locking lever came through opening on the front) and replaced screws. Have run 3 loads of dishes and hasn't leaked yet, appears to be fixed!

Food particles left on dishes after every wash... Piston and Nut Assembly was completely worn out (disolved) and leaking dirty water back into the rack area instead of draining it.

  • Customer: Peter from Macon GA

Unscrewed 4 screws from the back, bottom of the rack area which hold the cover. Twist out the old Piston and Nut which is threaded to fit securely (needed some elbow grease to get the old one out). Twist the new part in and place the cover back in place with the 4 screws. Done. Dishwasher works like it was brand new. Cleanest dishes in the country... ;)

I was very disappointed in the in-the-door silverware basket most dishwashers are equipped with today and longed for the ones that have been phased out.

I went to PartSelect online and easily found an exact duplicate of my old basket at a reasonable price. I ordered it, expecting delivery in about 3 - 5 days. It was on my doorstep 2 days after the order was placed. I opened the dishwasher door, set it in the place of my choice, and what a timesaver! Try it! You'll like it!

The coating on the lower rack was showing signs of wear and several end caps had worn away..

The part arrived in three days and matched perfectly. All I had to do was take out the old rack and set the new one on the track and close the door. We recently sold our house and want to leave everything clean and in good shape just as we would expect it to be. I wish replacing all parts was this easy. Bonnie Stanley

Hard to get end caps off -broke them

  • Customer: Linda from Tucson AZ
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers

My dishwasher used this part # as a substitute for the original part, which i guess is no longer made. After reading the other customers' comments,I thought people were describing two very different experiences with the installation -- some just "popped the cap off the end," or "couldn't be easier." Others had so much difficulty getting the cap off that they broke the cap. I think people must be dealing with totally different kinds of plastic caps. When I started on mine, I couldn't find a way to just "pop" the cap off. It was made so that some small flexible stems or prongs that slid in when installed could not be slid back out. I used a pliers to twist, poke, tilt, bend, whatever I could do to get the plastic cap off the end. That wasn't working, so I tried to bend rims the metal track open, but found the metal was too thick or strong for me to bend it. So I had to twist and force the cap, and the piece that kept the cap on broke off. On one side of the rack it was broken so badly that it couldn't be put back on--kept falling off. Had to try to crimp the rims of the track inward to keep the cap on. It's very loose but it has stayed in for the most part. The cap on the other side cracked enough to get it out without completely breaking off a piece. It went back in better than the first side. Pretty frustrating! I suspect because I don't have the original part with replacement caps to slide in. ?????
