Remove old seal. Clean area. Test fit new seal (it snaps into a slot). Starting at middle top, install seal by snapping into slot. Will have small excess at bottom of seal. Make sure it curves to follow bottom of door. Trim off excess seal. Shut the door. Aha! Success.

Reviewed info from prior users and sat down with a cup of hot coffee to review needs. Found it easy to strip out old door gasket. Compared it to the new gasket and made sure i understood which side went into the channel.Then cleaned up that channel with soap and rinsed and dried it carefully. Installed new gasket in just a few more minutes. Did not need the new strike plate. And as part of the cleanup and test I added 2 cups of vinegar which removed some of the build up of calcium deposits. I'll do that again another time or two until it cleans it all out. Voila, dry floor and a happy family! Many thanks, Dave

Read this entire instruction before starting. The old gasket is pressed into a slot, so to remove the old one simply requires that you grab one end and pull it out, but first only pull a few inches of the gasket so that you can note its orientation in the slot since the gasket is not symmetrical. Now remove the old gasket and wipe the slot and surrounding surface clean of any detergent residue with a damp sponge. Next, start the new gasket at BOTH ends (ensure that they start at the same location as the old one) and press the new gasket lightly into the slot, working your way all the way around. Ensure that it is even and partially seated. There will be no extra length so if you have any slack, you have the gasket stretched. DO NOT cut or trim the gasket. Once everything is partially pressed in place and even, go back and press the gasket firmly into the slot. When complete, the door will need to be closed/latched with slightly higher pressure than normal the first few times but after a few cycles, the gasket will be fully seated and the door will close normally. Some versions of this dishwasher may need the strike replaced but this particular one did not.

Tore the cabinet seal while installing the dishwasher.

I had to pull the dishwasher out from the cabinets about 12" in order to pull the old seal off. Installing the new seal was quite easy, since there is no adhesive necessary. Start at the top center of the replacement seal and snap the groove of the seal which is hard plastic, into the mating parts of the tub and the tub trim. Its a little hard to explain, but pay attention to how the original seal (W10179427) was installed.

I read information on this website about the function of the high limit thermostat. I found that it was the problem by disconnecting the two wires on the thermostat and straight wiring to bypass it. This allowed the machine to work properly so I ordered the high limit thermostat. To replace the part I used a screwdriver to remove the instrument panel and replaced the high limit thermostat by disconnecting the two wires from the old thermostat and connecting the wires to the new thermostat. I then replaced the instrument panel. My machine is working properly again..

After attempting to change the "high limit switch" to no avail, I researched further and found that doing a reset/reboot cured the problem.The instructions for the high limit thermostat were a bit off, as there was no screw to remove, only a spring like bracket that I did not try to figure out. The work area is so tight if the dishwasher is not removed and tilted that I thought it best to look for alternatives prior to pulling it out and disconnecting power and water. So ... voila, it's fixed with a reset only. Reset is accomplished by pushing two buttons 5 times. "high Temp Scrub then Heat Dry, high temp scrub then heat dry etc, until you click them both 5 times.It will go through cycles for a few minutes, then after done, run the dishwasher as normal and test if fixed. There are a few different ways to do it depending on the model.

The upper wash arm mount broke

The part isn't the same as the old one, but you could see how it worked easy enough. Problem was, once I got the part, it didn't screw on like the old one, it clipped to the rack. Nice! ...except that it's designed for the narrow spacing on the rack, but, if I used the narrow spacing on the rack that held the clip well, then it wasn't in the right location to hold the spray arm to the water hose. The solution has to be attended to frequently, to remount it, but that's not a big deal (until it breaks), but the remount is necessary because you have to span a broader distance than it's designed to, by about a quarter inch. It works, but it doesn't. Just because the unit's pretty old, but it still works GREAT!

Due to the posts on this site, I took the advise of replacing the chopper assy. Old chopper did not look bad and seemed to function. Apparently I was wrong. After new chopper was installed, dishwasher worked fine.

Dishes not cleaning upper rack

Removed both baskets. Then removed 1 Phillips screw for upper rack water supply. Unscrew lower washer arm. Twist lower water supply clockwise to disengage from upper piece and from retainers. Remove 4 torx head screws and remove strainer assy. Remove 1 torx head screw from chopper cover and pull out chopper cover.. Pulled up on chopper screen and removed all broken pieces. Pulled on chopper itself to load the spring and put chopper in place. Make sure it goes in outer most slot. Reinstall in reverse order. Works perfectly.

No water pressure in upper or lower diswasher spray arm assemblies

The Parts select video instructions for this part are pretty much spot on. The grinder assembly broke where it attached to the circulator pump impeller shaft. The screen became totally clogged and thus no water pressure to the diswasher spray arms. The only thing Id add would be to verify the circulator pump impeller is in good shape after removing the old grinder assembly and that you are able to rotate it by hand in case the impeller motor itself is seized or the impeller is jammed. Once the grinder assy was replaced good water pressure and cleans like a champ.

Dishes not clean on top rack. Very little water spraying.

I followed the "Installation Video for Chopper Assembly". No problems except chopper cover was hard to remove. Be careful to install new part with gear engaged and screen correctly inserted in grove. See my pic of old clogged screen/broken chopper.

After getting the correct model number (is it a 0 or an O, 1 or an l, S or a 5, B or an 8?), it was simple enough to look up the part. Did not figure out until after the fact that I needed 2 springs and thought the handle might come with them. Ordered the springs after. Easy to pop in the handle and the springs. The drawings provided by Part Select went a long way in identifying the proper parts and ordering them.
