Followed the video and changed it out in 20 minutes which did not fix the problem entirely, but I went back to the list of symptoms and watched a video on exchanging the Chopper assembly. I disassembled the interior and found broken glass and wire and string restricting the rotational functions. No replacment was necssary here, but a good cleaning was in order. This made it run like new and the glasses came out shiny again. These step by step videos have even made me think about becoming an appliance repairman. LOL! This is about the 8th time I have had success with Part Select. I have had no failures. Thank you for giving away all the secrets. YOU DEFINITELY HAVE SAVED ME AND MY FAMILY TONS OF MONEY!

Removed under countertop screws and lower trim plate. Retracted levelers to clear slate floor. Could only pull unit out about 8 inches, so had to reach in blind to remove and reconnect link ends from springs. Other than my 1 year old Newfoundland pup 'helping', no problems. Parts were perfect fit, just like in the video.

My husband took apart the bottom assembly of the dishwasher and found lots of "stuff" clogging the screen mesh. When he removed it, he noticed that the blades were not rotating when the back was turned. So, I got online and found Partselect.com where they had diagrams showing all the parts and what they were called by just putting in the model number. I immediately saw the part we needed and it was under $20! I ordered it and it came in rather quickly. My husband installed it and we are happily using the dishwasher again. I have already recommended this website to several people.

Slid the dishwasher out, removed the old hinge and replaced it with the upgraded kit. Appliance repairman wanted $168.00 to do the job and I repaired it for $30.00. Thanks for the great service

Actually your video lays it out very well. Went exactly as it shows and was very easy. I did not have to pull it out to the point I had to disconnect any water or electrical connections. Worked great! Replaced both sides as the new rollers turn and the old ones did not causing a horrible squeak when the door was opened or closed. Now, no noise at all.

I'm a 74 yr old women and have always tried to do my own repairs. With the web it was so easy to locate the problem and order the part. The online repair demo video was so easy to follow. Really proud of myself. "I still got it".

The PartSelect video was quite good. I viewed it before ordering to determine if I was confident that I could do the repair and reviewed it again immediately before performing the repair as a refresher. Here are a few extra items of information: (1) There was plenty of extra length in the drain hose and electrical connections, so I only needed to disconnect the hot water supply before pulling the dishwasher out from under the cabinet. (Be sure the circuit-breaker is opened and test for dead on the dishwasher electrical supply.) This simplified later re-connecting and tightening and dealing with drips. (2)When I tipped the dishwasher onto its side, a bit more water than expected drained from the sump out onto the kitchen floor. I put 2 2x4 blocks under the dishwasher side to prevent the insulation from getting wet. (3)When loosening the 3/8" retention bolt and shield, I needed to use a flexible screwdriver shaft and a nutdriver socket on the end of the flexible shaft, since a brace under the dishwasher prevented a straight-on approach. (4)The guidance on the video showing the amount of wiggling to remove the old impeller/motor was valuable, since it provided confirmation that some repetition of the twist and pull motion was needed/expected. (5)Finally, it can be helpful to carefully track which is the old motor and which is the new, since if one inadvertently places them next to each other, the only identifiable difference may be a small amount of water in the old impeller assembly. (One would hate to inadvertently re-install the old motor.) Re-assembly was easy and straightforward.

Found a video to replace. The part was replaced as the video described 12 screws on the door, 6 screws on the soap dispenser. The job went according to plan with no blue air due to unexpected problems. One comment on the shipment,, I was very impressed with the timely execution. The site said most deliveries completed in 1.8 days. Ordered on Wednesday afternoon, got it noontime on Friday. Could not have asked for anything more. Thank you.

I got on line and found what part number I needed and ordered it from you. When I received the new cap I unscrewed the old one and replaced it with the new one. Ta da! No more leaking of my expensive rinse aid from around the cap! Then I threw the old cap away!
