The quiet power 3 has the heating element in the back, so remove the screws holding the unit in place. Remove the bottom cover and disconnect the water inlet pipe, (after turning off the water of course). Discard the copper tubing if applicable, and pull dishwasher out until you can tilt it forward. Unsrew the plastic nuts and remove the wires for the element. Test the old one to make sure that you need to replace it. When sure of the problem reinstall in the reverse order. Replace the copper with stainless steel braided line and test.

ordered "stud roller part", basically an axle for the wheel which clips on to the tray rack. Simply removed the old clip from each wheel, placed new clip on wheel (had to use a hammer to snap it in place), then cliped it to rack by hand. very easy solution. Tray rack rolls perfectly and me wife is very happy.

I unscrewed all the screws from the inside of the dishwaher door. I took out the broken part, installed the new parts and screwed the screws back in. Part Select was wonderful to work with and the parts arrived the day after they were ordered.

Our tub gasket was torn by leaning utensils (a definite design flaw.)

Just have a good look at how the original is installed before removing, then clean the area. The new one was a breeze to install, just line it up and pop it in.
