The hardest part was getting the lid back off. I had tried using the dihxeasher while waiting for the spring. Once I figured that out, it was fairly easy. Once I got the longer pin out, it was just a matter of figuring which way to put the spring in. Took me a few tries without the instructions

Removed lower dish basket, removed the two original peg clips,then snapped in the two new peg clips and adjustable prong assembly worked as required. No further problems experienced. Appreciated the rapid receipt of parts. Will definitely remember this web site for future appliance parts.

Ordered parts and referred to exploded component drawings on the website to install replacements. Videos were helpful. Be careful to check all plastic parts for deterioration so that you can order them all at once. I had to make two additional orders for rollers and retainers that looked fine, but were brittle and needed replacement.

I removed the old pieces and snapped the new ones into place. For one part I watched the online tutorial to make sure that I did the replacement correctly. It was all very easy. The delivery and installation took less than 24 hours. I couldn't have gotten a repairman that quickly.

Snapped in the new ones in a skinny minute. Just make sure you leave the old ones in the dishwasher rack until the new ones come in it can be confusing if they are removed. My wife took them out so I had to figure out how they went back in but was not a big issue. I did have to swap ends to make it right but less than fifteen minutes and like new again.

Leak

I think anytime the motor needs to come out of an older dishwasher, it would be wise to replace the main gasket that goes around the motor at the same time.

Eventually the Pump started making a lot of noise.
Replaced float switch, (Tells the pump to shut off when empty) initial problem fixed.
Pump running dry caused upper pump housing failure, replaced pump housing, no more noise.

First, I went to the "partselect" web site and searched for "loud noise". The web site listed the probable cause and had a video about how to remove the discharge pump housing. I removed the housing and found it in two pices. Ordered the part and received it in 2 days. I had to watch the video again to make sure I replaced the parts in the correct order. Wife is now happy and that makes me happy. Thanks to "Partselect" for your help.

I made the repair easily by watching the step by step video supplied on the web site...easy peasy! Thank you so much. Saved me lots of money I'm sure. Could have saved $5 more if my dog hadn't chewed up the wheel from the rack! HA! Thanks so much. My dishwasher runs more quietly than it has in awhile!

Found picture of the "stack" of pieces online. Decided to give it a try and started disassembling the parts. When looking for replacement parts, found the video @ PartSelect. Wish I had seen it before, but it confirmed I did everything right. It was refreshing to see a step by step instructional video, made everything look easy and it was! Replaced the part and followed the suggestions of the video about replacing the gasket as well and what parts to clean while working. Great help. Very pleaased with the speed of the whole process. Ordered the piece on Sunday, had it on my doorsteps on Tuesday!

Opened lower panel to better locate noise ( ran in drain mode to pinpoint ). Removed lower tray & started taking apart , found the discharge pump housing had broken on the inside. Ordered parts , they came in a few days & put back together. All works fine & it runs quieter than before it broke
