Door balance kit was very easy to repair. Washer was installed incorrectly with water service run through the units frame. Once this issue was addressed, ordering and installation was a piece of cake.

I noticed the top spinner in the top tray. It wouldn't stay when I tried to reattach it. I searched around the Internet using the model number of my dishwasher. I ordered the part which arrived in two days. I removed the top tray and gently pried the piece where the spinner attaches away, took the old pin out, snuck the new pin in there and snapped the spinner in. The problem was that the nipple on the pin was worn away. The spinner was fine but I didn't see an option to just buy the pin. The I st ructions I read said to dismantle the whole works, but I sneaked it in without doing any harm. I hope. Dishwasher works fine.

Pin for the top spinner broke off. Watched the video on the website and went to fix dishwasher. Found out that I only needed to remove baskets, cover bottom with a towel so screws didn't fall into unreachable areas, then removed one screw on the top. Removed broken pin and installed new spinner and pin. Less than five minutes from a woman who's never done this before. Felt like a pro!! Your easy to use website to find parts and repair video made it possible. Thanks a million!!!

Just followed the video. Seemed simple enough but the bolt location was different so had to watch the video again paying specific attention to the part where he tells you to use the old bolts to replace the new pulley system. The new pulley system already has a bolt in the top pulley. You will need to old bolt through the bottom pulley. Works great - for now.

Solution was very simple with the side mounting bracket kit, the only problem was somehow one of the brackets was damaged out of the box . There's a slight off-set on the bracket to allow it to fit properly next to the dishwasher but this one had been flatten out. Had to have happened before going into the shipping box because they were very well protected with bubblewrap. Also, brackets are fairly heavy gage metal so it would have taken some amount of force to do this. Fortunately I was was able to bend it back into a useable shape. It wasn't perfect to look at but because it's mounted behind the side of the dishwasher it didn't matter as long as it worked.

The string on one of the door-balance links broke. The door dropped uncontrollably when opened.

After watching the DIY video, I purchased the Door Balance Link Kit and did the repair myself. It went almost exactly as the video explained. The only problem was that I had a new tile floor installed AFTER the dishwasher (DW) was installed. First, I removed the kick-plate (the metal "seal" plate and pad on the bottom), the 2 Mounting Bracket Screws from under the counter, and turned off the hot water (shut-off valve located under the sink). I had to tilt the DW forward while lifting it over the 1/4-3/8" difference in floor height in order to slide it out from the cabinet. (This should normally not be an issue.) Once out, I removed the screw from the (link) mount, rotated the mount (bottom half towards the front of the DW) removing it, and unhooked the link from the spring (attached to the frame at the rear). I fed the new link through the new mount before attaching the mount to the DW. Next, I gently stretched the spring forward attaching the link to it. I then changed the mount and link on other side. The DW was then pushed back into the cabinet, taking care to keep the insulation in place and not kink or bend any hoses or wires behind it. The Mounting Bracket Screws and kick-plate were then reattached and the water turned back on. The entire operation took less than 30 minutes and probably saved me $150-$200 in service call charges.
