Removed the old strip - cleaned the channel and installed the new gasket. Soooo easy. Unfortunately it's still leaking so now I'm ordering the gasket kit. Should have done it to begin with - like everyone else does!!!

First of all I don't know how you got the part here in one day. Second, I am glad I watched your video, otherwise I would have never seen the gasket tucked in the groove.Discharge pump housing had come apart inside dropping a round disc onto the impeller causing the noise and poor performance. Nice job guys!!!! thanks again. I will always use you now. Scott Seminole fl

The ironic thing is it wasn't broke! I had ordered new rollers, new belt and new tensioner, before I took the front off. The video was helpful. The tough part was reinstalling the tensioner as it did not screw down. But live and learn. I set the tensioner in place and used small wire to bring it over to the moter drive, then assembled the new belt together and cut the retaining wire.

Disassembled spray arm the way the website describes. Found an amazing accumulation of scale and soap scum. Everything was seriously gunked up. Cleaning and rodding out the spray arms and pump housing screens takes a minute. Be careful not to break or puncture the screens. Dont try slapping the pump housing filter on the driveway. Its brittle and will break. Suggest buying a new one anyway. Its nearly impossible to clean. Simply clean it all up and re-assemble. Oh and bask in the praise from your wife.

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.

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.
