A simple do-it yourself project. All I had to do was unsnap the old broken roller and snap the new one in place. The hardest part was getting the plastic cap off the arm that the roller glides in, and even that was not difficult at all.

I had some extra problems with my water supply line since this is an old house, but I won't dwell on that. If you have an older model like mine (probably 80's) the only trick is with the drain solenoid. The kit uses a newer style solenoid that is a little different. Without getting too technical here, let me just say that if the old solenoid has a little metal lever that is actuated when the plunger goes down do not discard it. From what I have read, the dishwasher will shut down with an error code if you don't use this part and you will also have 2 wires that are just hanging there with nothing to plug in to. You will need to use an included metal plate and screws to adapt that part to the new assembly. It takes a little mechanical aptitude, but after you figure it out it works perfectly. I did not see this mentioned in the instructions but the necessary parts were included. Replacing the pump and motor was fairly simple, and all the needed parts were included in the kit. I did remove the unit from under the counter and lay it on it's back for easy access to the pump and motor. It helps to watch some You-tube videos if you are unsure about how to do this, but make sure they are working on the brand you have. All dishwashers are NOT the same.

with a dishwasher. Someone had 'packed' the silverware basket and there wasn't one in my dishwasher! Ordered one from here, when it arrived, opened the box, opened the dishwasher and placed it in the correct place. Closed dishwasher - DONE!

i first order the corner baffles and put them in. no change at all, still leaked terribly. the old baffles looked pretty good so i kept them. i then ordered the door gasket and the insert. i removed the old one, put in the new, and still no change. i thought perhaps the machine hadn't been used at all because it was like brand new inside, and previously owned by 'a little old lady'. i decided to load it up and run it on a regular wash, and have done that three times now. it drips a very small amount on the left corner but i'm quite happy that it decreased so much. I think perhaps the seal might be setting with the heat of the cycle because each time a load goes through it get less and less drips from that corner. The first order was sent by ups and they couldn't find where i lived so i actually had to go pick them up, but the second order was sent fedex and they had no problem finding my home, and i was very pleased with how fast my order came.

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.

Unsecured Upper Rack to Tracks

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.
