Actually, I asked a handyman who was at my home to do it. Since the parts aren't labelled, there are no directions or graphics for installation and I'm not mechanically intuitive I tried fitting the parts together (outside the dishwasher). I put the small tack into its place and couldn't get it out. Using a pair of pliers I got it out but broke the two small parts. I ordered the part again and got it a day later. (Both times the package arrived very quickly.) When my handyman showed me it was actually pretty easy. I didn't realize the sheath that the arm fits into is mobile--even though several other people's installation instructions say it very clearly. I was envisioning sticking the tack or pin UP into the arm. It's the other way around. First, you pull down the sheath or whatever you call the piece that's against the top surface of the dishwasher. Second, you put the tack, point down, through the hole (facing into the dishwasher). Third, you put the second smallest piece through the hole in the arm from the side with the divots or vents. Finally, you snap the arm into place against the tack, writing side up, divot side down. It's smart to put a towel in the dishwasher so you don't drop either small part into the works.

Watched the partselect video... but there is an error. The dishwasher had a foam core glued between the stainless door and door panel that wasn't shown in the video. After removing the six screws from the inside of the door, a hairdryer was used on the door panel to release it from the foam core. Then a cutout was carefully made in the foam over the dispenser. After replacement of the dispenser, the cutout foam was glued back into the foam core, and the panel was replaced with the six screws.

Broken handle

To access the handle assembly, the control panel must be removed. Remove six (6) torx screws (T-20?) from inside of door, being careful to support the control panel, as there are small wires between the door and the control panel assembly. Carefully remove what remains of the broken handle so as not to damage the mounting pegs. Snap the new handle carefully in place. I took the advice of Thomas from Austin, TX and added a second spring to the other side where pegs exist on both the handle and the control panel assembly. I used needle nose pliers, as it is a little tight trying to get the small spring on the pegs. Place the control panel back in position and reattach using the six torx screws removed previously. Overall repair time was less than 10 minutes. The handle does have a more "reliable" feel having return springs on both sides.

Machine would shut down during the wash cycle.

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..

My upper wash arm for my dishwasher was missing, where it went one only knows. Ordered the replacement from PartsSelect and got it in a few days. Took only a few minuets of prep and Badda Bing it was installed. No tools are necessary. By prep work all I did was line the bottom of the dishwasher with a towel. The kit has a snap button to secure the washer arm and if you drop this and the button goes down into the food grinder you are screwed and you'll have to most likely order another kit.

Put new nylon retaining clip through opening on upper water supply, then put nylon lock clip through upper arm impeller and while holding the retaining clip firmly with one finger I pessed the reatining clip and arm assembly up until it snapped onto the nylon retaining clip. It is interesting to note that all I needed was the nylon retaining clip, a piece that cost no more than 3 cents to manufacture, but I had to buy the whole kit for $28.
