Replaced float switch and arm in orginal assembly. I had ordered a new float assemble but the assembly housing was not the same as the original. Took switch and float arm from the new float assembly and put them into the old one. Also replaced water inlet valve as a precationary measure. Very, very difficult to disconnect and reconnect the existing copper supply tube to the inlet assembly because of corrosion. The latter task could not be done with just removing the kick/toe panel. Had to remove the entire door panel assembly to get the needed access space.

I removed the two screws holding the dishwasher under the counter, and pulled out the unit about 10 inches, which allowed access to the door balance string and spring. After removing the old balance string I hooked the new one in and attached the spring. Then it was just an easy job to push the dishwasher back under the counter top and re-install the two screws. The replacement balance kit was not exactly the same as the OEM part, and rubbed on the guide wheels some, but it appears to work.

After reading the manual that a flashing green light is caused by a heater circuit, I assumed that the cause was the heater element. I found PartSelect on the web, ordered the element and received it the following day. I watched the video on installation and replaced it within a half hour. Unfortunately, the clean light still flashed. I went back to PartSelect site, read other peoples comments and ordered a thermistor. The delivery took one day and the replacement less than a half hour. Again, the light flashed. I ordered the high temp thermostat, received it immediately, changed it out and still had the flashing clean light. From the Part Select site, I learned the hi-temp/heated dry combination reset after the wash cycle for the rinse cycle without the heated dry. Dishes come out clean. I'm afraid to order the controller for over $120.00 and have the same outcome. I wish I had invested in an ohm meter. I am very happy with the PartSelect web site. It is very informative, easy to locate the parts and very quick delivery times.

followed the instructions on the youtube video from partselect to replace the door balancing kit. The hardest part of the whole operation was disconneting/reconnecting the water line and electrical to pull the dishwasher out to work on it. The actual replacement of the door balancing kit was easy (with the help of my 10 year old son.

Pulled the diswasher out, as I did three years ago. Reattached the spring, connected the plastic fastener to rear arm and then my wife put the front piece of plastic, holding the balance rope, over the hook, at the end of the spring, when I was able to pull the spring, with my pliers, far enough. Then, I pushed the diswaher back into place and reattached the front plate. Time spent about 1 hour
