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.

First problem was finding out whether Dishwasher had power at all, since nothing happened when you tried to start it, and I really didn't want to have to pull it out and disconnect the power cables at the box on the back of the dishwasher. Used the video instructions from PartSelect and opened the inside door panel and exposed the switch, then put a continuity tester (light with two prongs) across opposite sides of switch (white one side, black the other). With the test light on, knew I had power and was able to locate circuit breaker to turn off power to dishwasher, all without dismounting it from the cabinet at all. From there, followed the video. Hardest part was disconnecting wires from the old switch, which was slightly corroded. Plier trick on video didn't do it, and had to use large screw driver blade to carefully lever wires off of the switches. NOTE: Look at the new switches before doing this, and you'll be able to visualize how the wire clips slip on the switch connectors. Great site, and dishwasher started right up after the repair.

The part is on the bottom of the washer. You have to remove the front panel at bottom (four screws)The part is on the left side of the washer. First thing to do is to remove the water inlet hose, using an open end wrench. There are two screws that hold the part to the sideof the washer. I used a multibit screwdriver with no bits in it, it the right size and works very good. Disconnet the electic from the part. Turn part so you can the see outlet hose & clamp, use a pair of plyers to open and slide the clamp up the hose, and pull the hose off the part. To reassmble reverse the procedure.To show how easy this is I'am a 76 year old man and had no trouble at all. The hardest part of the job was finding the leak in the first place

Removed the rack by unlocking the slide stops on each end. That was a bit of a chore until I figured how to remove the stops. Then fairly easy. Removed the 2 small pivoting side rack attachments from the old rack and installed them on the new rack. Installed the new rack in the two sliding side rails and the job was done.

Grinding noise and dishes not getting clean

Upon removing parts in an easy systematic order I discovered glass in the bottom of the machine. Was able to remove all but the Wash Impeller. This seemed to be stuck and I could not unscrew even when holding the impeller with pliers. Finally broke it. Ordered a new impeller and installed a few days later and everything works like new. Total cost less than $20. Wife is happy - I'm happy. Washing dishes by hand for a few days reminds you of how much we take modern appliances for granted. Oh - by the way. Very happy with the PartSelect service.
