I checked on line and found evidence that my problem most likely was the failure of the circulation Pump Motor. I ordered the motor from Parts Select. When it arrived, a small section of the housing was damaged. I called for a replacement. The customer service agent was very helpful and the replacement arrived in less than 24 hours. I followed the video provided on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjRxJy2IUE8 and the one on PartSelect. Both videos helps provide greater clarity for the whole job. The hardest part of the replacement was disconnecting and reconnecting the water supply line. These were my steps. 1. I turned off the electrical power and water supply. 2. I removed the screws holding the dishwasher to the counter top. 3. I removed the two screws holding the bottom access panel. 4. I moved the dishwasher out about one foot and disconnected the water supply line. (Fortunately I didn't have to disconnect the power supply and drain hose because there was enough slack in these lines.) 5. I moved the dishwasher all the way out from the counter and moved it over on the its side. 6. I removed the bolt holding the motor and the motor shield. 7. I removed the connector supplying power to the motor and removed the motor. 8. I removed the inside screen, cleaned and replaced it. I also wiped the other surfaced with a clean rag to ensure a proper seal for the motor. 9. I also applied vasaline to the rubber grommet on the motor to ensure against leaks. 9. I aligned the arrows on the new motor housing and impeller housing and installed the motor as shown in the videos. 10. I reinstalled the motor shield and retaining bolt. 11. I reconnected the water supply, stood the dishwasher upright, turned on the water supply and found I needed to tighten the water supply connection a little more to stop a minor leak. 12. I ran the dishwasher through a rinse cycle to ensure it worked properly and that there were no leaks around the newly installed motor. 13. I reinstalled the dishwasher under the counter top, reinstalled the screws holding it to the counter top and replaced the lower access panel. While this took me a few hours, it was well worth the effort because a repair person wanted $500 to do the job. Thus, I saved well over $300 after paying for the motor. Good Luck with your repair job.

Soap Dispenser Failed

I would add three things to the other excellent hints on this page: 1. I stacked cushions from my patio furniture under the door. The cover plate laid snugly on them and basically never moved, making one man re-installation very easy. 2. There are two plastic tabs near the hinges which keep the cover plate in line. If you slide the cover plate over them first, they help hold the cover in place and the re-installation goes quickly. 3. I taped the vinyl cover up to make removal of the dispenser easier and taped it down to make sure it did not get folded when putting the door back together. On ordering parts: it is not clear that the rinse aid cap comes with the new dispenser unit. It does.

To adequately access the drain motor pulling the dishwasher out was required which was the hardest part. Once the dishwasher was out and laid on the back, replacing the motor took about one minute(Very easy, one clip and a small electrical plug)

Ordered replacement kit. Came 7 days later. Opened box and found you had sent wrong part. Not even close the part number I had ordered. Called to report the problem. Sales person was very helpful. Original order was credited back and a new order placed with 3-5 day shipping. After the order was placed, I checked my receipt and found the price was about $6.00 higher than the original. Hmmm.

Removed two screws that hold the dishwasher in place with screwdriver. Pulled dishwasher out, connected balance kit to hook on door, ran cable through pulley system, hooked cable to one end of spring, and used pliers to stretch spring to hook it in its hole. Slide dishwasher back into position and replaced the two screws.

Ordered one evening and it arrived in two days. It took a minute to understand how it was attached to the basket with three clips. Two on the sides and one in the middle. All need to be taken off and the one in the middle has another assembly that needs to be opened up to allow the old one to come out and the new one to go in. Perfect fit and the hardest part was taking it out of the wrapper.

I unfortunatly removed the whole base assembly to replace this motor. I wasn't sure what the original cause was. After watching your video I would have followed it and it would have been easier. All went well with not leaks and now we can sleep with the dishwasher on. Thanks

Removed the dishwasher from under the counter, disconnected the copper water tubing, placed it upside down, removed the old pump and replaced with new. The only iffy situation is making sure the copper tubing doesn't kink when removing the dishwasher and putting it back into the cabinet. Very simple, my husband can fix anything. Your video was very helpful as well.

I was only able to get the dishwasher partially out from under the counter. I had to reconnect the springs using a big screw driver. I then attached the door portion of the cable to the door and pulled the spring back to connect it. It went OK. I found your video valuable because I knew what I was dealing with and was able to come up with a solution for not pulling the washer completely out
