I removed 2 lower front axcess panels,removed "e" clip on plastic cam on drain solenoid with a small pick,removed 2 springs with needle nose pliers,remove 2 mounting screws holding solenoid to drainvalve. remove push on nut on drainvalve shaft with a set of side cutters I bent it in half and cut it off then used the pick again to remove the seal. i soaked the new seal in warm water with a little dih soap so it was more flexible when sliding it into the seal seal , then with a deep well socket just big enough to go around the drain valve shaft i pressed the push on nut into place. i then revirsed the steps to reinstall valve sloenoid screws,cam & springs ran the dishwasher to check for leaks and then reinstalled the lower covers. total time took about 30 min ps have a magnet around for when you drop the "e" clip (and you will) trying to reinstall it! good luck.

(1) Remove end caps of the support arms that hold the upper rack in place (use pliers if needed). (2) Pull rack completely out of dishwasher. (3) If some of the old rollers have broken off in the support arms, remove them by sliding them forward. (4) Remove rollers (or broken-off stubs) from the sides of the rack (use pliers if needed). (5) Push new rollers onto the sides of the rack (hand pressure should be sufficient). (6) Insert rack back into the support arms by sliding the new rollers into the support arms. (7) Replace end caps; make sure they are secure.

I removed the motor and pump assembly. I had to unplug the motor and drain solenoid, remove inlet and drain hose, and loosed the recirculate hose and water return to pump clamps. I also had to remove the ground wire on the motor. I removed the solenoid and bracket. I had to cut the push nut off with diagonal cutting pliers. The seal removed easily. I buffed the shaft with emery paper and reassembled the drain solenoid. The push nut took a little effort to seat in place. I reassembled in reverse order. i still have a leak, only not as bad. I am sure the shaft is loose in the seal.

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.

First broke the tab on trying to get the sprayer arm out - had to buy replacement part. The tab to release the sprayer arm is on the BACK and can't be seen. FYI, pull the tab gently out from the back to release the sprayer arm. Problem wasn't a clogged drain. Next figured it had to be clogged in the Impeller and Seal assembly. Replaced that and realized the motor wouldn't turn. As an electronic engineer, determined the starting capacitor was defective. Found Mr. Nice GET (who owns Hotpoint) would not sell the capacitor, only the entire motor assembly for about $125.00 more or less. Found a capacitor at local motor shop with the correct value and hung it under the dishwasher. (wasn't the right package size to replace where the old one was). All is well - Finally.

Pulled out the rubber baffles. They had detiorated and lost their protective ribs which keep the water inside the dishwasher. No tools were needed, I just cleaned the area where they were located.

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!
