The repair was very easy and straight forward. I removed the electrical wires, removed the two hose's and then removed the old valve from the dishwasher frame. To install the new valve, I just did everything in reverse. No problem and I saved about $80 for the repairman to come out and I am sure I would have paid more for the valve if he provided it.

Thank you.

Removed old basket, put new one in. New basket fits but it is larger then the old one so it takes up more room leaving less room for dishes. My dishwasher is apartment size.

I had to pull out the built-in dishwasher by removing the top two screws and pulling it out. I unhooked the fill tubing and drain hose. I removed the drain hose hose clamps pulled the hoses off and replaced the new part by attaching the hoses w/ clamps and pluging in the two small electrical wires and it was done. worked great! This was the only site that I was able to find MY EXACT model and the part was a perfect match!!

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.

I just plugged in the model number and a screen came up that showed all the part numbers that made up the model. picked out the parts that we needed and ordered it and within 2 day we had the new basket that we needed for our dish washer.
the service and ease was better that going to the appliance store and picking up the basket.
I was very happy the the service.

Broken Middle Arm Spray Hub

  • 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.
