I watched the video on the web site and made the very simple repair. It was so easy that almost anyone could do it. Also, the parts arrived 2 days after I ordered them. The whole process was very easy and saved the cost of a service call.

1. Removed front panel. 2. Backed out retaining screws at top. 3. Backed up leveling feet. 4. Pulled out dishwasher but seemed tight so stopped not wanting to break electrical or water line. Made very short space in which to work. Insulation batting was binding at top between DW and counter opening so tended to bunch up. 5. Spring at rear had flown off, so had to reattach while not being able to see. 6. Spring and new line were very tight so grabbed line with channel pliers just ahead of spring to get enough slack to get line over guide wheel. 7. Moved DW back into place and reattached with screws. 8. Had to play with leveling feet to get gap the same on each side of DW and cabinet opening. 9. Reattached lower front panel. 10. It has worked great.

The video did help with disassembly. But my dishwasher has the insulated door. So splitting the door was a bit of a challenge. I found both halves are glued. The inner door has the least glue about 2 inches wide by most of its length. I took wooden wedges on one side to open it to be able to see in and work. I separated the insulation with a flexible putty knife from inner door. Then repeated the process on the other side. I removed the doors halves once separated and the dispenser. I installed the new dispenser and plugged the unit in without outer door installed. Ran a rinse cycle to check for leaks. With none found unplugged and reassembled the door. Without any damage to the dishwasher stainless steel, plugged the unit back in and it is back in service. Be patient with the process.

Should have been simple repair. Door panel would not come loose. Seems they used adhesive on the door panel and the styraform insulation. Did not want come loose and put back together as I did not want to destroy or bend door panel and insulation. Any advice on how to remove!

We found a youtube video....and followed the directions. We unscrewed the inside panel of the door...all the way around. Then, we took off the outside panel which revealed the screws on the backside of the dispenser. After unscrewing that, we were able to push out the old dispenser, and push in the new one...... screw that in and then replace the door screws. We were done in under an hour.

Remove outer door (lower half) to expose dispenser, remove electrical connector and remove 6 small hex head screws from dispenser and remove dispenser. Replace dispenser, install 6 screws and install electrical plug and install outer door. Hard part was holding outer door in place while installing first couple of screws, a piece of masking tape helps here.

Disconnect power (circuit breaker) open dishwasher door, remove 3 trox (star) drive screws on each side of door( do not remove the 2 top screws on each side) close door and pull out at the top than up at the bottom to remove front panel. NOTE, If you have a super quiet washer you have to pull out on the panel quite hard because the foam insulation is glued in and has to be broken loose. Unplug the 2 wires connected to the dispenser , remove the 6 trox screws holding the dispenser in , remove dispenser making sure to clean where the gasket goes before installing new dispenser. You may want to check to see if a wire fell off your dispenser before you order a new one. THAT'S what mine did and PARTS SELECT took the part back, NO PROBLEM.

after trying several parts and two weeks without dishwasher, I tried messing with strikeplate. Nothing. Then a friend visiting said it looked bent. So I ordered from PartsDirect. Came quick, quick replacement and Wahla! Fixed appliance! YEAH!

A rat chewed three hoses, but luckily did not chew the water supply!

Start by removing the dishwasher from cabinet. Oh, don't forget to turn off water supply and also don't forget to install a plug on garbage disposer so when your other half uses the sink while you are outside you don't end up with a leak! Both supplied hoses installed easily, the third which I used semi flexible clear tubing with clamps deemed more difficult to bend, so I soaked the hose in very hot water to make it more pliable thus making the bends easily. I then had to wait until I was sure I captured the culprit before re-installing the unit.Your sales person was very informative and knowledgable and helped immensely!
