Simply had to replace the clips in the correct position. Would have been a five minute job if I had noticed which way around the old parts went before removing them from the dishwasher to find replacements. It's amazing hoe many permutations there were before it all fit together perfectly.

The machine would no longer clean dishes.

I discovered that, except for the central tower, all the spray holes were all plugged with I took to be calcium deposites . Using the parts diagram located on this web site, I removed parts. All parts can be removed either by hand, nutdriver or small wrench however you do need a star drive (simliar to an allen wrench) to remove the Pump Cover and Secondary Filter. The Lower Spray Arm unsnaps from the Pump Cover and Secondary Filter. I laboriously removed the deposits from each part down as far as the support filter. The upper spray arm can be removed by unsnapping the hub. the Pump Cover and Secondary Filter is a closed unit so. I purchased a new one. The process is very labor intensive. Next time I am going to consider purchasing all new parts or calling a repair man.

The job was a snap. The panel removed easily, it only required the right type of screw driver. The hard part was getting the new handle to fit correctly into the right spot, but that only took a few minutes.

Attaching the part to the door only took a few minutes but getting the dishwasher out over the hardwood floor that was installed after the appliance was put in was a pain. I had to remove a piece of the hardwood floor and use some technique to get it out of the opening so that the springs were visable. There is no problem after that. I would recommend using work gloves to stretch the spring over the retaining notch on the door so that you don't pinch your hand.

I removed the bottom rack by simply rolling it out of the dishwasher, and removed (unsnapped) the rotating spray assembly. It was easily snapped into the center of the new dishrack. Next, I removed the roller stops from the rail holding the upper dishrack by following the marks (arrows) on the stops. I rolled out the upper dishrack, and rolled in the new one. Finally, I snapped the roller stops back into position.
