I didn't know how to put in the new one clips until I looked up a picture of them in place, on-line. Once I saw the picture, it was a matter of clipping the new ones in place.

first I turned off the water to the dishwasher, and turned the power off for the dishwasher.
removed the 4 screws from bottom panel
then removed the 2 screws from the bottom of the counter,
at this point I could pull the dishwasher out. then figured out where the part went and attached.
pushed the dishwasher back and lined up the holes under the counter, put those in first, the put the bottom panel back on, turned the water back on, and flipped the breaker switch.
Reading the other stories really did help me get some idea of what needed to be done

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.

Removed the screws to the front panel along the inside of the door. Replaced the broken part with the new one. The only glitch was I needed a screwdriver to pry one end of the new part to seat into the hole where its installed. Replaced the screws. Job complete in 15 mins.

bottom of silverware basket broke

  • Customer: Nora from Wilmington, DE
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 2 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
received new basket without a basket handle; had to remove handle from old basket & attach it to new basket; took 2 separate tries to remove old handle & each try took about an hour; used screwdriver & pliers but had to be careful not to break handle; eventually used dimes to pry open & hold the attached sections of the handle open in order to free the handle from the old basket; we sure hope the new basket lasts a lot longer than the 2 years that the old basket lasted before it broke.

The dishwasher was not getting dishes clean

  • Customer: Vickie from Lincoln, NE
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Wrench (Adjustable)
  • 2 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
We had tried to use dish washer cleaners, and they would work for a time, but we started spending more money on cleaner than we wanted. I ordered and then I replaced the lower spray arm. It took a little effort to get the top screw off, due to hard water deposits. The new one went on very easily, just screwed right in like the old one. It's working great and I really don't mind not getting a new one or paying for a service call!!!

dishwasher quit mid-cycle, made a thumping noise

  • Customer: Donna from Salineville, OH
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

I figured it had to be either the motor or control panel so I gambled that it was the control since it had been draining but stopping midway through the cycle.
Removing the inner door panel was a piece of cake. When a small electronic part rolled out to meet me as I removed the panel, I was pretty sure that I'd found the problem. I simply disconnected the wiring, taking care to notice the arrangement and plugged in the new unit. Then I gently tightened the mounting screws, and replaced the door panel, being careful not to twist as I tightened it. The old girl fired right up!

Dishwasher would not fill with water

  • Customer: Clifford from Palm Harbor, FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

Remove the lower panel by taking out the 2 screws on top and 2 at the bottom of the panel. To diagnose the problem, verify that there is water supplied from the valve under the sink to the water supply valve under the DW. This can be done by turning off the valve under the sink, disconnecting the copper supply line under the DW then turning on the valve under the sink to see if water passes through the line.

The float switch is located on the left front (as you face the DW). This is activated by the float in the tub. Check to be certain that the float is not restricted. The contact point on the switch is a spring loaded plunger. It should depress as the float rises and pop back out as the float returns to its low point.

Turn off the circuit breaker for the DW. To remove the switch, pull off the two electric leads from the switch. Mark the top lead with a piece of tape. Then remove the one philips screw. Replace the switch by reversing the procedure. Note that you have aligned the float contact point with the float.

No water would enter in dishwasher

Tub rollers worn and falling off the mounting pins

The most difficult part is learning how to unsnap the plastic retainers at each end of the steel sliders on each side of the dish rack. Push the end caps to the outside and the plastic inserts will snap open and slide off the ends of the rails in two pieces (note how they were oriented so you can replace them later). The caps must be removed from both ends of each rail. Slide out the basket. slide the rails out. Pull the old rollers off the pins. Place the new rollers into position. A smart rap with the palm of your hand should snap the rollers onto the pins. If you have done it correctly, the rollers will not pull off the mounting pins. You could also place a small block of wood against the roller and use your hand or a small hammer or weight to snap the pins into place. Assemble in reverse order.
