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.

Followed the video on your site. Removed old gasket, put in new one...easy, breezy! For good measure, since we weren't sure where the leak was coming from, installed a new water deflector as well, which was also extremely easy. Out with the old, in with the new and no leaks!!

The dishwasher would hang up after about 10-15 min. on auto wash. You could hear the control board click but the pump wouldn't start. Ran the diag. process and it came up turbitity sensor. Found one on e-bay (no longer available from parts houses)put it in and had the same problem, this time the error was low motor voltage. Found, from others talking about the same problem on the net, that there were two other things to look for. One is where the wires go out the bottom of the door. The way the machine is designed after time the door will start to cut through them. Taped up any cut wires and made sure the connection was still good. Second, check the back of the control board for cold or loose solder joints. I found two for sure that were cold and the pigtail was also loose. Re-soldered the connections and ran a full cycle with no problems. The solder connections were most likely the problem to begin with. Hope this helps.

The plastic wheel broke from the mounting strip on the top rack. I removed the top rack, and the broken mounting strip. Just note that one side of the strip needs to be tilted before it can be removed. Clicked in the new wheel and mounting strip. Again, the side requiring you to tilt the strip goes in first. I was good to go in less than ten minutes.
