The gaskets arrived in a few days after my order. The tub seal was easy to change and tool only a few minutes with no tools. After I watched a video on the GE website I pulled out the old gasket, wiped out the slot, centered the new gasket at the top, pushed it in the slot to each corner.Then I pulled the end to the end of the track and pushed it in the full side from the bottom up. repeated on the other side.The lower gasket was harder and took about 40 minutes. I took eh door apart but did not need to it could be done with a mirror. Pull the old one out from one side. Don't be afraid of tearing it but get it all out. The new one will snap into the slot if you use a mirror to look in the door and see.

The upper try roller was broken

  • Customer: Howard from Mount Prospect IL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Unscrewed the old roller. But it was difficult to replace the roller as the rim of the roller would not fit into the slide mechanism and allow the screw to engage the hole. What I thought would be a 2 minute job turned out to be more like 20 minutes. I suspect there is a way to release the slide stop so that the top basket could be removed with its slide bar, but I did not see how to do that. I finally was able to "force" the screw into the hole

I removed the screws inside the door. I removed the screw for the control module - on the side. I opened the module and saw the contacts were blackened from the over current. I ordered the module. It cost 1/6th of the dishwasher. It showed up three days later. I removed the module completely and re-installed the new module and put the door back together. It worked.

Very easy to use website. I put in model number, followed the parts to bottom rack, looked at picture, and selected the wheels and axles. Arrived quickly. It took only a couple of minutes to snap the wheels on the axles, and then snap them in place. Great experience! Made the dishwasher (bought in place with the new house) useable.

I removed the old ones (or atleast the ones that were still hanging on). I put the two pieces together (lower axle and wheel) and then just snapped them into place. Piece of cake even for a girl (which I am)

The ice cube door located on the front of the freezer (side by side freezer/refridgerator) stopped closing.

I removed the face plate (ice/water, selection panel) from the freezer door to access and remove the solenoid which was badly rusted and replaced with a new one, and a new spring too. Very simple repair for a chronic pain.

Door latch would not release permitting the door to open for reloading.

First I removed the 8 screws on the interior side of the door that holds the plastic inner-face to the door assembly. This allowed me to easily pry the inner face away from the outer face which exposed the latch assembly.

The broken latch practically fell out making it very easy to work the new one into place.

I replaced the 8 screws, closed the door until I heard it latch and then squeezed the handle and was rewarded with a very satisfying sound and feel as the door popped open without a hitch.

I know a repairman would have cost me a minimum of $75 plus a hefty price for the part.
