Most difficult part of repair was getting dishwasher out and in under the cabinet. Especially, feeding the copper water line from under the sink and then back while trying to align the connection. Installing the part itself was easy with good instruction for taking it off and reinstalling. However, since the motor had been upgraded, it required new connections. The connections were provided for this, but no instructions for the electrical connections.

There is sufficient clearance to remove the motor and pump from under the dishwasher after removal of the front lower panels. This avoids the inconvenience of moving the dishwasher. Some ouch work required to remove some of the fittings as sight lines are obstructed - use a mirror to help. Installation is easier as all but one of the hose and pump clamps can be installed with the screw heads accessible from the front. Only installation issue was that the mounting holes on the pump body for the ground wires and the support piece had been drilled but no screw threads had been cut. Two minutes work with a tap solved the problem. One suggestion is to run a couple of loads before replacing the front cover to check for leaks. I did find one after the second load.

First, I shut off the water to the whole house, then caution taped off the kitchen and put dogs in kennels. I sent wife and kids to her moms for the weekend. After the coast was clear I called up the buddies and we prepared for the rebuild. Second, I pulled the dishwasher out and hoisted it in the air with the cherry picker so I wouldn't strain my back bending over (safety first!). After that it was break time, a round of beers to relax and slow down, you don't want to rush things. Third we left to go to the bar to let all the water drain out, you don't want to get your clothes wet do you? When I got back it was to dark so I just went to bed.

My machine stopped leaking after I simply massaged the door gasket and cleaned the baffles. I did order the necessary parts, they arrived in a very timely manner and the process was painless. After watching the video for both the door gasket and the tub baffles, when my machine decides to leak again, I will be ready to install new parts. As a snow bird, my machine sits idle for 6 months and I think things tend to dry out. Wonderful experience in ordering and video watching.

Leaking

When I first noticed my unit leaking I noted that the leak was dripping right in the middle. So, I went straight to this web site with my model number and the 1st part I saw was for a Gasket Insert which is a small piece that completes the sea. I received that part in 2 day and did the repair and I still had leakage. I went back on the web site and looked further and came across info for the Corner Tub Baffles. I did not even know there were there. I removed mine and it was very obvious that the original Baffles were very worn and wrapped. In addition, the unit was quite filthy. I ordered the two replacement baffles. The parts arrived in two days, did the minor repair and now I have no leaks.

The PartSelect video told me to take the end caps of the track and simply snap the old wheels off. It was easy. I popped the new wheels on, put the rack back on, and reattached the end caps. I was surprised by how simple it was to repair a major kitchen appliance.
