replacing the rack was easy - but first we had to swap out the plastic spay tower that twist-locks onto the new rack. My smart wife figured this one out, despite the lack of any trace of instructions (the less astute amature repairperson would have mangled the whole shootin' match attempting to make the change); that said, the rack was not a "one-to-one" match, as it lacked the original's high left sidewall and a few other minor differences that did not affeect the overall performance of the part - a not uncommon occurance in the aftermarket parts world.

I grabbed a hold of the old gasket and removed it. I then took the new gasket and set it in place on one corner. I inserted it around the groove and with just one adjustment for length, I took the round bottom of a spoon to set and smooth the gasket into place. No more leaks. 5 minute fix.

I disassembled parts from the lower Spray arm to the Rinse Arm. Everything was gunked up, nothing was broken. I replaced the Lower Spray Arm, Secondary Filter, Pump Housing Filter and the Rinse Arm. I re-used The Radiant Shields, Filter Plate, Lower Spray Arm Seals and the O-Ring. Much of my time was spent cleaning before re-assembly. Assembly was no problem. I ran the machine afterward with no problems and very good cleaning results. I ran the videos once before starting. They were very helpful, as were some other people's experiences.

lack of two wheels

  • Customer: Michael from Scottsdale AZ

Replacement part has only 6 wheels. The original part has 8 wheels. The lack of the two extra wheels allows the dish rack to get stuck in the space between the inside of the dishwasher and the door. The extra set of wheels allows the rack to bridge the gap. It is a problem even if you put the rack in the other way around only a bit worse to deal with. The part was designed with four sets of wheels for a reason.

The lower dish rack was not a duplicate.It was a replacement with 2 less wheels

  • Customer: Daniel from Grant Park IL
  • Difficulty: Difficult

I had to cut the old rack for 2 axles and add 2 wheels from the old rack to the new one that was sent. the new one had 2 less wheels.I used white zip ties and wheels from the old rack. Placing the wheels in the right place I used the zip ties to hold them in place. Without the extra wheels like the old rack had the new one would fall into the bottom of the dish washer. Working just fine so far.

Rusted and broken tines on dishwasher racks

I looked through the pictures of parts and discovered I could order just the worst of the broken tines...front bowl tine with sleeves and rear bowl tine! I ordered them one day and they were delivered the next day....no special shipping! I was very happy with this solution and was able to install them very easily. My dishwasher is not perfect but it is much better than it was and I am sure this "repair" will mean Ii can use the dishwasher for several more years! Thank you!

Dishwasher Leaks

Installing the door gasket is relatively easy, it just pushes in place without any adhesive. Just make sure it is even on both sides
You can to pull it out and reinstall to even it all way around the door if needed.
You may also find a new gasket will make to door a little harder to close. I presume it will be easier to close over time.
I also installed a new float at the same time but that repair is very difficult, takes specialized tools and lots of patience.
