I read the instuctions and snapped it together just following the pictures...reading only when the picture was not enough information for me. My husband thought I pulled it out of the box already put togethr, he did not know I put it together.

I had replaced the control board a month or two earlier. Then smelled plastic burning. I noticed the Sta-con connecters in the molex plug had burned - that's what took out the control board. The fuse assembly came with new connectors - so you know this is a known problem with the machine. If you're handy you can buy the thermal fuse from Newark for $0.88 and replace it by soldering - but you need to replace the sta-cons. They corrode and the bad connection causes the heat making the thermal trip.

AIR INLET GASKET Had to pull dishwaher out, using instructions sent with part, turn it 1/4 turn counter clockwise, tap with screwdriver and hammer and it came right off. Put the new one on. It was kinda hard to get it to turn the last little bit, I had to use a screw driver and hammer to make it twist that last little bit.

Removed 2 screws that held the old mount and washer arm in place, new mount was very easy to install, it snapped in, only one screw needed, remounted the washer arm and the job was done. I was really impressed with the ease of ordering and how quick it got here (3 days), also the scematics you have online are very helpful. I printed them out since I don't have the owners manual any longer, they're very helpful in matching up and ordering the right part which saves a lot of time, also I like the way you can just search by model number and appliance name to find the right parts, makes the entire process really easy. I know I will continue to shop here when the need arises. It really cuts down on expensive repair costs.

Did not have to do any repair, the parts for the dishwasher come with all the necessary parts and no tools were necessary. the wheels were snapped into place for the lower rack and the upper rack should needed to be place in the sliders. The Middle arm holder is not necessary as it comes standard.

I was hesitant at buying the Matag made replacement, especially since it was one piece as compared to my 10-year old 3 piece assembly, and my dishwasher is KitchenAid.
Ordered on a Sunday afternoon, had in hand Tuesday same week, one phillips head screwdriver to remove/replace. Everyone smiling!
Did not need to remove upper rack. Simply unscrewed 1 screw, put on new one-piece arm, replaced with same screw.
15 minutes!
Good price/delivery.

This was my third attempt at fixing the problem. First I tried the bushing under the lower spray arm. This worked for me a few years ago but not this time. I then replaced the door gasket with no luck. I just discovered another bushing that has worn paper thin between the lower spray arm and the nut that holds it. I ordered it and hopefully that will do the trick. I read that if the spray arm wobbles it creates waves in the tub that slop over the edge.
