As per instructions, any one that can read and use basic hand tools could do it. Very nice color instructions. BTW, this was an excellent value, $20 cheaper than two of the other parts houses I checked. Super fast shipping

Leak at door bottom

Removing and replacing the door gasket is simple. No tools required.
Removing and replacing the short bottom door seal is next to impossible. I finally got instructions from the Sears help website, but even then I am not sure if this method really applies to my dishwasher, even though they were given the make/model of the unit. I have not attempted to do this proceedure as of now but will try it when I get enough cofidence that it is indeed the correct procedure for my unit.

Broken Middle Arm Spray Hub

  • Customer: Dan from Purcellville VA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 3 of 5 people found this instruction helpful
Due to loading a tall item in the lower rack of the dishwasher. The constant hitting of the spray hub, the hub broke.

I purchased the Middle Spray Arm Hub and using a hand nut driver, I unscrewed the nut and attached the new Hub and screwed it back in place.

The replacement was very easy and the cost of the part was very reasonable.

Delivery was quick and the dishwasher was up in running 10 minutes after the part arrived.

I would use this company again and I give them an A+ rating.

Installing the gasket took about 45 seconds. It actually took more time to scrub the area clean prior to installing. One quick trick I found was to fold the replacement gasket in two, and use that mark to center the gasket and press it in from there. That way you don't have any guesswork as to how much slack to allow for when starting.

Purchased new $1400 dishwasher from sales floor for $699. Cosmetically perfect, but missing drain tube and clamp. Seemed like a good deal... and it was. Needed parts were $34. Install of this machine was a breeze, and it is suoer quiet...I need to get down on the floor and listen for water flow to know that it's working. Really.
