Very easy. I removed the two screws on the base plate, then the two screws that attach the washer to the cabinet, and pulled the washer out of its slot. I installed the broken side and closely checked the other side and felt it didn't need repairing. I put it back together and the door works very well.

Thanks,
Ted K.

I simply had to hook up the power cord to the dishwasher so i could plug it into the outlet rather than direct wire the appliance. Everything went very smoothly. Everything needed for installation other than tools was provided. Easy to follow instructions if you know a little about electrical wiring.

I did not relize that the drain hose was in two parts. Naturally I ordered the wrong half. So after I relized my mistake, I re-ordered the correct part. Once the correct part was received the repair was easy and went well.

Everything worked perfectly---thanks to the suggestion of your call center agent. She suggested that since the replacement door handles were no longer available, I should consider repainting them--it worked like a charm. Please tell her she was a life saver. We rent that house in Fl and my returning tenants had complained about the discoloring refer handles. Thank you

The dishwasher is has been in service only 18 months and the seal between the motor and pump leaked, destroying the front motor bearing.

Rather than just replacing the motor and seal, I figured it would be just as easy to replace the sump and pump assembly also. It makes sense because the extra cost is minimal and I have a completely new unit now. The repair is quite simple. Just three clips holding the sump and a few electrical connectors and the unit comes right out.

The motor started make a noise and finally quit.

To get motor work space I placed unit upright on 4 by 4 s. I set the sump unit in places carful to set the gasket. this took a little time. I put the plastic wedge in the back. I held the unit place with one hand put thre wedge under the door next. The third wedge was next and was less of a struggle.. I connected the Plugges and draind and other parts I had to take from the old unit. I installed electric water and drain.

First run the cancel and drain cycle to empty the water from the machine. Next shut off the water and power to machine. Then disconect the water and drain hoses, and uninstal the machine from the cabnet. There are usualy just two screws at the top when you open the door. Before you take them out take out the bottom wash arm, and the screan and the cover over the food chopper. These are all held in with star screws. After the cover is taken out the chopper will lift right out. Next lay the machine on its side there is just one capscrew holding the motor in located behind it when lying down but first unpug the wire harnes to it. The motor will come out with just a small twist after the cap screw is out. To instal just twist in put in the cap screw and follow the directions backward till it is installed again.

Followed the parts list diagram and confirmed with the link on the other side of door. Hooked the plastic attachment to the door, threaded the string around the plastic pulleys, attached the spring and mount it to the back of the dishwasher. that was it! Very easy to do. Hardest part was sliding the dishwasher out and in.
