Replaced the valve from the side. Easy and quick. The program to identify the part is excellent. The big concern is getting the right part.

I went online and determined what the possible dishwasher parts would cause no water entering. The most recommended part was a valve. I ordered it and afterword obtained a ohmmeter and determined the part in my washer was not faulty. It tested the same as the new part I sent for. The real problem was the connecting metal flex hose that I had installed when I put it in. It had a valve built in that prevents water to flood the kitchen if the hose becomes broke. Even though I tested it out and found water flowing through it, the valve when under pressure had gotten plugged up with dirt particles that caused it to malfunction. I changed the hose and Wa La everything worked fine. I in fact did not have to change the so-called faulty valve. I suggest a detailed evaluation of the problem before purchasing parts. With electrical components it is practically impossible to know if they are faulty without an ohmmeter. Some valves become stuck and if unplugged then plugged back in they will reset themselves. I suggest that if one does not know what they are doing, refrain from messing with electrical parts. Don J.

I unplugged the dishwasher under the sink. I opened the dishwasher up and took out the 12 screws holding the inside door facing on. I gently moved the door facing down towards the dishwasher to reveal the door locking mechanism at the top of the door. I unplugged the mechanism and plugged in the new one. I put the door back together the same way I had taken it apart. In all it took about 12 minutes. Works like a charm.

I just followed another persons directions that was in the system already. He had a great idea by taking the new switches out of the new latch and replacing them with the old ones from the bad latch. The old switches are still good and it made for a simple repair. This way you didn't have to disconnect the wire from the switches and now you have two new switches on hand. The old switch had a burnt spot on the connector.

1- dishwasher not cleaning good. 2- dishwasher continued to run after door being open

1- replaced accumulator filter and docking station with flappers, the docking station with flappers may not have been necessary? But what the heck, if your into it this far why not. Check out the tech. Video it was helpful. The dishwasher works like new now. 2- the door latch switch was worn out, to replace this part I first unplugged the power cord then removed the 8 screws from the inner panel of the door exposing the door latch assembly. Unplugged the two connectors and installed the new part and reassembled everything, pretty easy! The dishwasher works like new now, and for around $ 102.00 bucks, saved lots of money doing it myself, thank you Parts Select for your help. Carlos, Lancaster, California.

I decided to finally repair this piece. It was easy to order online after I figured out the model number! (nothing easy about that either) I took out the entire rack, unscrewed the six screws, put the other piece on screwed it back up. The only thing is I can't seem to lower the shelf on the blue tab replacement part. It is just nice that the shelf isn't falling while loading the glasses.

The cheap plastic wheels that attache the top rack were broken

This is the second time I've had to repair this same issue. The first time I replace the opposite side. It's annoying that the wheels can't be purchased separately. However, the replacement rack adjuster with the built in wheels seems more sturdy than the original part. Installing was pretty easy, using the part select instructions.

Most importantly, take a picture with your camera phone or just pay really close attention to where the rack adjuster sits before you take it apart. I removed the rack stops and then removed the rack. Using a screwdriver with a torx (star) bit, I unscrewed the rack adjuster panel off, cleaned off the dish soap deposits, then just replaced the new rack adjuster. Before you go through the trouble of screwing everything back together, put just one screw in and make sure the thumb adjust lever is easy to push down like the one you have not touched as it is an indication that the adjuster is not sitting quite right and this is where having a picture of "before" comes in handy. Once I figured that out and the levers adjusted with equal tension, I screwed it all back together, put the rack back on the track and put the stops back in place and it is just like new.

Wheel broke on rack so it wouldn't stay in track.
