Disconnected electrics,plumbing, and removed DW.
Replaced sump inlet by removing about four clamps.
The inlet was partially dissolved. I think what lead to this is a partial clog, of broken glass and plastic. DW works fine.

First thing I did was to turn off the water and electrial supply. Then take the side mount screws and remove the base cover disconect the water line slide out the washer. I then put a pad on the floor turn the washer face down on the pad. I disconected the drain line lossened the clamp on the pump. Then disconected the two wires and removed the pump.I then installed the new pump tightened the clamps reconected the two wires then conected the drain line. I then slide the washer back in place reconected the water line put the side mount screws in place. I then turned the water and electrial supplies back on. I then ran the washer to check for leaks. No leaks found iI then reinstalled the base plate. The vibration was gone after replaceing the pump. Thanks Charlie

No Plumer could help me. No one heard of a dishwasher check valve. My dishwasher was an ISA. I was lost until i found the relationship to Kitchenaid. Then sears. Vuela!
The valve was there, but unavailable.
A few more links, and the term "flapper" came up.
Well, my dishwasher check valve HAD a flapper inside. Although a plastic pos, i could unscrew the two halves and see the flapper.
A little piece of rubber, about 1" in diameter
All suppliers gave me but two choices. One large (size given) one smaller.
After years of searching, all I needed was a flapper valve. Not the whole check valve.
I found it hear for under $10

Once we ordered both the "Stud Roller" and "Roller Lower Rack" the repair was simple.

The previous studs mostly disitegrated, so their removal was not an issue. The wheels pulled off easily.

I recomend getting new studs and rollers for all of the wheels on your rack. For me, that was 8 wheels and 8 studs.

First, take the rack out and flp it upside down in a convenient working space. Next, remove all of the old wheels and studs from the rack and discard. Then, snap the new wheels on to the new studs. Next, atached the stud (with the wheel) to each of the 8 spots on the rack. Put the rack back in the dishwasher and walla!

I can't beive that I waited almost two years to make this simple repair.

We removed the remaining rollers, inserted the studs into the rollers and attached to the lower rack. Easy. I can't believe we put up with this for so long. We appreciate your quick service. So much easier than going shopping and waiting for the parts to come in and then having to go pick them up. Thanks for being there.

Lower assembly only require removal and replacement without tools. Upper assembly required screw driver and pliers to install water wand from old rack to new rack.

The most surprising aspect of this repair was the short 36 hours that it took from order placement to product receipt.

White latch on soap dispenser broken- would not latch

The first posted instruction is dead on (except there are 14 phillips screws (not 10) on inside of door. Also, when reconnecting the 2" quick connect, make sure it is fully inserted - otherwise the numbers on the display panel will not show correctly. Mine didn't the first time, and I had to re-open the door panel and giggle around with the connection to get the numbers to display properly.
