Repair was very quick. Pop the lock on each rail endcap with a flathead screwdriver, remove endcap and set aside. One at a time, unclip each wheel from it's mount point and replace with new wheel, clipping it back into place. Once all four are done, reinsert the end caps and re-engage the locks (can be done by hand. Total repair time was maybe 5 minutes. Upper rack slides like new again.

Dishwarsher was making loud almost grinding type noise

I followed the video instructions except I had no idea what tools he was using because he talked so fast, but I figured it out myself. I could not get the guard off but I worked around it. Then I took off the discharge piece. The impeller needed to come off and I unscrewed it but the impeller was stuck tight to the diswasher. It did not slide off like in the video. I ended up having to break up the impeller with pliers until it fell apart enough to take off.That was the only semi difficult part. I replaced impeller. The new screw I ordered did not fit on my machine??? So I used the old one again. I reassembled all and the dishwasher now works good. Still makes a little noise which could be normal. Nothing like it was making.

First replaced the door seal, that slowed it down substantially, but not totally. Next replaced inner door foam insulation strip and that took care of it, no more leaks. There was some corrosion evident after I scraped off the old strip, sanded that smooth with emery sandpaper and then installed new strip. Job done!

Door handle was broken and hard to open

I followed the advice on the video provided by PartSelect. It was easy to follow and VEERY easy to change out the old handle with the new one! I'd purchase parts from PartSelect again. You just simply remove the screws on the inside of the door unplug the handle from two wires, take out the old handle (it just lies in position) insert the wires into the new handle, place it in the cradle and put the inside of the door back on and tighten the screws. Nothing to it!

handle on diswasher lid cracked - became stuck and it was difficult to open

Once you remove the satinless steels screws that secure the inside plate assembly to the cover - have another person hold it. You will need to renove the terminals fropm the two cherry switchs. Be careful since these switchs are very fragile. i ordered the handle asembly with new switches just in case they did break. Need to remember which set of wires goes where - seprate white and blavck lead assembly. Once you have the wires removed take the new handle assembly and attach the wires in their correcy orentation. Place the handle assmbly back in its location and place the inside cover assembly in place. Line the holes up and secure with the screws.

I watched the attached video which came with the shipping conformation and followed the suggested steps. From there it went like clock work. I turned the power off, removed the screws, lifted the panel up, disconnected the 4 electrical plugs, took the broken handle assembly out and installed the new one. Connected the 4 plugs, put the panel back into place, installed the screws and closed the door!!!! Works like new.

The only problem was pulling the wire connectors off the switches. They were very tight. Other than that the handle replacement was extremely easy and the new part works great

Replace Door Latch

Followed the video with two exception. When re-installing the door panel, I did not tighten the panel screws, but installed all of the screws first and then went back and tightened the screws. I had a little problem aligning the screws initially and this solved that problem. I also found that I did not need to disconnect the other electrical connectors on the front door other than those to the latch itself as there was sufficient room to replace the latch.

First I hit the breaker box cut the power to my dishwasher. Put my drill on the lowest rpm setting, because the internal case is plastic. This is important even though this is on the outside of the rubber gaskets. Then star T20 screws take them out there are two where the handle is to secure the handle into the door. Since all that was broken was the handle. on the new part I loosened up the switches and pulled them out of the broken piece, as well as the new part. Removed the broken pieces from the inside door. Then this is when it gets tricky putting the old switches into the new plastic handle, there is a button that has to be pushed in, it's super small you can use a small screwdriver or a bic pen, then they clip in. Replace the door screws very slowly you are going to have to pull the plastic housing towards the hole. Get them all in place before tightening to avoid cracks. Then power on and wash some dishes.

I viewed the video of the repair. I found removing all the connections inside the door wasn't necessary. Just remove the wires at the door handle assemble. Be sure to unplug it before touching any wires inside. The door handle wires are hot all the time. I placed the wires on the new handle assemble and placed the handle on the pivots and through the opening. I placed the inside cover backing onto the door and placed the screw's in the holes. I snugged the screws in reverse order as I removed them. 5 minute repair. The parts came quickly as well. I was down for 3 days. Thank you PartSelect.com .

Latch handle was broken, but Dishwasher still worked

I read the installation instruction from other postings, Followed what others have done, BANG! Piece of cake! The only problem I had was the bag in which the part came in was sealed and missing a micro switch, and a broken pin. But the door holds the switch in place and I did not want the hassle of sending it back. If it would not have worked, then I would have. I highly recommend these guys for parts! They have all the hard to find parts, and FAST SHIPPING!
