1. Removed front panel. 2. Backed out retaining screws at top. 3. Backed up leveling feet. 4. Pulled out dishwasher but seemed tight so stopped not wanting to break electrical or water line. Made very short space in which to work. Insulation batting was binding at top between DW and counter opening so tended to bunch up. 5. Spring at rear had flown off, so had to reattach while not being able to see. 6. Spring and new line were very tight so grabbed line with channel pliers just ahead of spring to get enough slack to get line over guide wheel. 7. Moved DW back into place and reattached with screws. 8. Had to play with leveling feet to get gap the same on each side of DW and cabinet opening. 9. Reattached lower front panel. 10. It has worked great.

Our Kitchen Aid dishwasher was not getting the dishes clean so I went on line looking for a fix that did not include replacing the dishwasher. Found the Parts Select website, read a few of the comments and ordered the pump / motor assembly. Following the steps of others, I turned off the dishwasher at the breaker panel and disconnected the power. I found it easier to disconnect the water feed and drain under the sink rather than under the dishwasher. The dishwasher was held in place with 2 screws at the top, It came out easily. Warning: have towels handy as the water in the drain, inlet and housing will come out with the removal of the dishwasher. I did have to remove the upper spray assembly, easy, to remove the motor / pump assy. the assembly is held in by three plastic clips. When these are removed, the assembly pulls out through the inside of the dishwasher. Replacement was simple, just reverse the steps in removal. Be careful to center the pump / motor assembly. Having done this once, I would probably leave the dishwasher in place and change out the pump / motor assembly.

Wheels broke off top rack

The wheels come on these adjusters. Pretty easy repair- just be careful taking off the plastic fasteners that hold the adjusters on. You can use all of the old fasteners to put the new parts on if you don't break them. Do one side at a time so you can refer to the other if you forget how something goes on. The right and left adjusters are the same but the fasteners install on opposite sides to hand the part properly.

Both Rack Adjuster rollers broken.

I didn't realize that in the base under the lower arm was a food particle grinder. Small multibladed item attached to a screen so water can circulate through the washer and not get clogged up with food. We use our washer at a dog boarding site and this area got clogged with hair, broke the blade mechanism and clogged. A few screws gets you to this item, easily replaced and I put a "sponge" type material on the iput side of this grinder to avoid it getting clogged and broken again. Works great now.
