So simple! BTW: I am a 59 year old female.

My husband watched the video which was great it gave step by step instructions. It took my husband less than 30 minutes to change out the part. Now my dishwasher is back in perfect condition. We have ordered several parts from Parts Select for different appliances and have never been disappointed. Affordable prices, good deliver time and easy installation instructions.
