Watched on site video. Very helpful as it explained how to remove the upper and lower baskets to get at the upper cabinet nut. How to remove the nut and use a socket to compress the retainer rams so they would pass easily through the hole in the spray arm. Retainer nut replacement 1 minute. Removing and replacing baskets in machine another 5 to 10 minutes.

Well, I haven't gotten the right part yet. I'm such an idiot that I've ordered the wrong part twice now. So, figuring that 3's a charm, I'm going to try to get the right part now. I do have to say that part select has made it amazingly easy to return the parts. And both of the first 2 (wrong) parts arrived within 2 days of ordering. I'm pretty impressed with this company. Now, if I can just order the right part, I can tell you how the installation went!

Installed a new grommet on the soap door latch. Replaced door seal at customer request. The door seal ordered was to short. Replaced door spring clips at customer request. Split the door, remove 2 screws from inside the inner panel, grommet is between the inner panel and latch mechanism. Line the new grommet before install.

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.

Because mine is a portable dishwasher, I had to remove top first. the sides and back are one complete unit. the torque screws are in the front, 2 on top, and 2 in rear. Then the panels can slide back to access the spring. Replace the plastic piece & hooked on the spring. Reassemble in reverse order.

The lower dish rack has only six wheels three on a side the original had eight wheels four on a side. This new rack does not stay on track.Is there any way to add two more wheels .If not how can I return for the correct rack?

Replaced both upper and lower Dishracks, the Parts Select video shows how to replace the top rack but doesn't mention the lower one. Had a bit of a problem trying to figure out how to remove the spout on the bottom rack. Finally figured out, twist it counter clockwise to remove it and turn it clockwise to reinstall it onto the new lower rack.

Received the parts within two days. Watched the video and it explained everything. Found it hard to believe how easy it would be, and it was very easy. Cleaning up the door in preparation to installing the new gasket took longer than the gasket installation. The gasket just pressed in the channel, frankly I was surprised that the door inner shield did not have to be removed. The water deflector just pulled off and slipped on (probably took 30 secends. Ran the dishwasher a few times, and no leaks. They had cited that the majority of leaks were due to the gasket, and it was right on. Like the dishwasher and can go for another 12 years.
