This is almost a joke. It took 5 seconds to remove the old silverware basket by lifting it from the bottom Rack. Then I spent another 5 seconds to lower the new basket onto the lower rack of the dishwasher. I was a little miffed because the new basket did not match the photo on the Parts Select website, which photo seemed to match the old basket exactly. However it fits, and the wife likes the design of new one better than the old one.

I removed the top rack and looked at the other rail to figure out how the stop should fit into the rail....had to reinstall the rail and rack and reach in from below the rack with the rail extending past the rollers.....took me a little while to figure it out but it worked great.....repair less than $12. ($4 for the part and $7 for shipping the part).

I followed the video provided with the Order Acknowledgement. Very Very simple and easy to do. This is without a doubt the best company I have ever dealt with online. Prompt, quick delivery and very professional. The only mistake I made was not ordering the O ring for the soap dispenser. I am in the process of ordering that right now. This is the go 2 place for appliance repairs for sure. You won't be disappointed in any way.

Water holes corroded shut

Whatever you do, don't call a repairman to do this simple replacement task. 1. Remove the lower basket. 2. Locate the round knurled nut holding the spray bar on. (use gloves or a channel lock pliers if it's corroded on) Lift off the spray bar. noting the 'flats' on the bottom of the spray bar. If the knurled nut has lots of corrosion, put it in a container of vinegar for a couple hours. Use screwdriver to remove the metal plates on the ends of the spray bar and install in new one. Then install new one in reverse order. A real piece of cake.

Orient the gasket so that the more squishable hollow side of the gasket faces the door, and check that the length is sufficient to fill ths entire channel. The less compressible side goes into the channel, which requires some skill and strength to seat well. The flat portion of the more or less square gasket has two edges to it. What works best is to put the edge that is toward the inside of the dishwasher into the channel with your fingers, and then press in the other edge firmly with the small spatula of about 2 or 2and 1/2 inches until you can no longer see that edge. This is the visual indication it is seated. in the corners you may only be able to use a corner of the spatula.

door the soap dispenser stopped opening

unscrewed 7 torx screws with the impact driver. removed the motor from the bracket. comes out pretty easily. moved wires aside. Pulled the wires off the motor using the pliers- one came off very hard, note where they go, corroded in place. installed the new motor by easily re-attaching the leads. Biggest surprise was that there were 2 motors. I initially replaced the lower one which did not solve the problem. When I replaced the upper, it worked. Not sure of the function of the lower motor. The upper one clearly fits into a slot which seems to attach to the doors.
