Followed video. Everything went together fine, but leaked water around motor shaft seal. Read comments section on video and someone had the same problem. I had pushed the seal into base too deep. I pulled it out and reseated it. It worked without leaking after that. Bob

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.

Upper and lower racks had broken and rusting prongs.

Removed old racks -- easy. New lower rack slid right into proper position. Upper rack -- had to unclip the rotating water supplier from underside of old rack and position it on the underside of the new rack, carefully noting the removal process to facilitate re-placing the water supplier onto the new rack. No tools needed -- very easy. New upper rack slid right back into proper position.

knives had cut the plastic on the racks and rust encroached in the racks.

I used a screwdriver with a torque bit and took off the inner door panel. Move the panel to the right side (as you face the dishwasher). Disconnect the two wire connnectors with a needle nose plier and discard the handle and connections. Install the new latch by making sure you attach the wires to the proper connectors. Make sure the connectors 'snap' in place. Place handle in proper slot and replace the inner door panel making sure that the two small flaps on the bottom of the inner door panel go inside the dishwasher (they cover the hinges). Tighten the screws and you are done!
