I received the gasket promptly. The instructions were easy to follow. We did not use the dishwasher for 24 hours as instructed. It has worked perfectly for 2 weeks. I feel I saved $200 by purchasing the gasket on line and installing it myself.

No explanation is necessary.

A few weeks ago there was a grinding noise when running the dishwasher. We ignored it. About a week later the top rack stopped getting any water. I cleaned the chopper assembly but the problem came back after a week. Looking more closely, the chopper was damaged and the impeller had been stripped (p

The video is very helpful for replacing the Chopper Assembly. For the Impeller, reference the video for replacing the motor: http://youtu.be/pAKz1gMUWDA But once you have the motor removed and you identify the impeller, you need to insert a tool into the back of the motor to hold the impeller still from the back while you unscrew it in the front (I used a small wrench, a thin screwdriver would be ok too). Then, just screw on the new piece and follow the rest of the video to put everything back together again. Nothing this stay-at-home mom couldn't handle while the kids watched a tv show.

Remove power to the machine. My particular installation did not require physically removing water and drain lines. Remove the dishwasher from the cavity. Put a towel or two down on the floor. Lay the washer on its face on the towels and this orients the motor in the up position on the bottom of the washer. CAREFULLY unplug the motor wiring harness but if possible, leave the heating element connection in place as spade connectors tend to lose their grip with multiple engagements. Remove the single bolt located between the motor and stainless bottom of the cavity that locks the motor in place. Leave it in the cardboard shield, that really helps in reinstalling it. CCW rotation of the motor disengages it from its housing. Work the motor straight up and out of the housing. This was the most difficult part of the entire process due to the metal housing not quite clearing the plastic pump housing where they mate, but its do-able. Nothing should have to be forced. Now you have the motor in hand. Be very attentive how and what order you disassemble. Remove the back of the motor housing to block the armature to remove the impeller. DO NOT NICK THE FIELD WIRING IN THE MOTOR. I believe the threads were left hand but I don't remember the rotation. They do tighten in the direction of the motor rotation though. Carefully pry the seal out of the pump housing with many short lifts as to not mar the housing itself. Added a little dishwashing detergent on the outside of the new seal and carefully pushed it into place with the end of my screwdriver. Don't cut yourself on the metal insert in the center of the seal.Reassemble the impeller to the shaft WITH the spacer that comes with the new impeller kit. Make sure the impeller is tightened down completely to the end of the threads to insure proper clearances when reassembled. Don't force or over tighten. You'll feel a positive stop. Reassemble the motor to the housing Lubricate the housing o ring seal on the outside with a VERY small amount of dishwashing liquid lest you create a suds factory on startup. Replace the holding bolt on the pump housing. Reconnect the motor leads and heater element if removed. Stand the washer back up. There will probably be water around the door area from the pump when the machine is returned to the upright position. Reconnect lines and check under the pump housing for leaks while in operation being careful not to get into moving parts or electrical connections. Good luck.

The most direct way to do this job is to completely pull out the dishwasher so you can get to all the parts involved. However, I didn't want to break and make all 3 connections. Having installed it using braided hose for the water line, I had enough give to pull the unit out about halfway. This exposed the pulleys and door hook, but the spring was still in the back (and had actually fallen off the frame and was now lying behind the frame on the floor. So a little back and forth and I was able to retrieve it. I hooked the link on the end and blindly and miraculously hooked the spring into it's hole on the frame. Since I had no room to work with the door open, I had to keep it closed which meant the spring was under full tension. This is where the drum stick came in. I pulled the spring forward with a pliers and shoved the drumstick in the loop on the spring and held the stick against the baseboard while I threaded the string around the pulleys and onto the door hook. I guess I could have tried a long screwdriver, but the drumstick was handy and the bulbous tip prevented the spring from sliding off

Ordered the part. It arrived in less than two days. Turn the power off for safety.You're done. You may have to loosen the drain line or water line to allow space to slide dishwasher far enough out to allow access to link kit. Easy repair. Video on your website gave detailed instructions. Thanks.

It was a fairly easy repair job after we got the dishwasher out of its space in the counter. To accomplish this make sure that the water line is shut off and disconnected and allows enough movement to move the washer out at least far enough to expose the balance cord and spring. Ensure that the electrical connection line shut off and is free enough to allow movement of the washer. Finally, ensure that the dishwasher is lowered, if necessary, to clear any obstructions, top and bottom. Move the washer out far enough to work on her balance cord and get on with the repair job.

Balance line snapped

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.

To avoid disconnecting hoses, dishwasher could only be moved about 3/4 out from the cabinet. Stretching springs to allow connecting opposite end of cord to connection point required me to use locking wrench to grab end of spring and stretch it far enough to allow plastic loop to attach to door bracket.,. Video shows dishwasher on a platform with easy access to springs and cord connection points, which made this job much easier.
