All that was broken on the old detergent dispenser was the door but the door can not be ordered without buying the whole detergent/rinse aid assembly. When I got the new item I just removed the old door and replaced it with the new door that I had taken off the new one. I still have the new detergent/rinse aid assembly that I can keep if I need to change it in the future.

Open the door all the way. Remove the 7 screws along the perimeter with a Torx screwdriver. Then close the door. Remove the two screws at the bottom of the side of the outside of door panel with a phillips. With the palms of your hand flat on the panel slide the panel up about 1/2 inch and it falls toward you. Follow these steps in the opposite direction to install the new door. I did however replace the two phillips screws last.

A sudden puddle of water under the dishwasher

I first removed the bottom access panel and 2 upper screws holding the dishwasher to the counter. Be sure to remove the standing water in the bottom tray. I pulled the chassis far enough forward to reach where the top shower hose attaches ( the supply line and wire had enough slack to move the chassis ). Not knowing how the rotating shower arm attached, I unscrewed the ribbed retaining ring above it, and found the whole assembly came loose - freeing the upper end of the shower hose. Put a shallow tray under the lower end of the shower hose to catch the remaining water and loosen the hose clamp to free the remaining end of the hose. Transfer the rubber washer at the top end and the hose clamp at the bottom, to the new hose and install. A quick repair, but one that shouldn't be needed on a 4 year old dishwasher.

First I removed the screws that held the door together. I then unplugged all the wires from the back and removed the screws holding the LED panel in and unsnapped it from the clips. Just reverse the process putting the new one in. Worked great.

The dishrack guide rali stop had come off one of the guide rails, so the wheel in the guide rail would often roll right past the end of the rail, causing the rack to pitch down. this was rather frightening with the rack full of glasses and other breakables.

At first I snapped the plastic piece together and then tried to put it in the guide rail. That's where the sharp knife came in handy, to pry the piece apart again and start over. It was easy to see how the piece was supposed to go into the end of the rail and snap in place; I just didn't look carefully before I had to backtrack! I haven't yet tried to put in the other pieces we ordered.
