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.

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.

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.

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.

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).
