Opened door fully, removed the tray. I was unable to remove the bottom gasket, or even see it at first. Many years of use actually made the gasket stick pretty firmly to where it was. Used my needle nose to pinch it and it came out very easy when I pulled. Cleaned the area ( and it needed it!) slid the new gasket in place without a problem. The Tub gasket came out without a hitch. Measured it to the new one and cut to length. Stuffed it in the crack and did some dishes. Small leak still in same spot. It's kinda of a funky fit in the corner so was a little more careful stuffing it in and it worked fine after that. Thanks...cheap, quick fix.

I used the flow chart online to determine the water inlet valve (WIV) was probably the problem. 1: Cut the power (circuit breaker) 2: turn off the water 3: Removed the lower, front panel (depending on age, you may want to replace the screws) 4: Disconnected electrical cord, waste water line and fresh water supply. This is when the bucket comes in handy. The waste water is NASTY!. At this point, I pulled the DW out and rolled it on its side (Bucket time). I removed the defective part and replaced it easily Simple swap. Clean the old teflon tape off the threads and put fresh tape on. Then I reversed the instructions and opened the water. Check for leaks before you finalize the installation. Then power it up and run a cycle to test. I took a coffee cup and put it in the top rack right side up and checked it periodically. If it keeps getting filled up, it's working. Then i ran a dishwasher cleaner through it, as it had developed a case of the crud sitting still. The new part is quieter than the old one, I can't even hear the water running into the DW now. I am SO happy that $30 worth of parts kept me from spending $500 on a new DW. Thank you Parts Select!, your installation video is great.

Water was leaking from under the Dishwasher. Inspection showed problem appeared to be a cracked solenoid water inlet valve

Water was leaking from under the Dishwasher. I took the lower front panel off to peak under the dishwasher with a flashlight to see if I could identify the problem.the leak appeared to be a cracked water inlet solenoid valve. I tuned off the water at the shutoff valve under the sink. Upon delivery of the replacement I disconnected the supply line from the compression nut of the brass Dishwasher Elbow with an adjustable wrench. Next I unscrewed the DW elbow from the water inlet valve using an adjustable wrench and a Channel Lock Pliers. Next remove the mounting screws holding the inlet valve in place and it dropped down allowing me to pull the electrical quick connect off and use a pliers to disconnect the fill tube. The process was reversed. Remount the hose to the new solenoid valve. Connect the electric. Remount the valve with the 2 mounting screws. Use Teflon tape to reinstall the DW elbow. Use pipe dope to reconnect the water supply line to the compression nut side of the DW elbow. Turn on the water and run Dishwasher to confirm repair is ok. Remount lower access panel and smile. Job well done. Exactly as shown in the video.

Water inlet valve leaking

first shut-off power and water! removed bottom cover panels and top two mount screws from DW. slide DW out about one foot for easier access. disconnect inlet valve wiring harness. then remove the screws that hold the unit to the dishwasher. then disconnect water outlet hose (mine was a black accordian type tubing) use your pliers to move back the clamp. it will take a little bit of twist and pull to get that hose off. next use your adjustable wrench and pliers to unscrew inlet copper tubing from the valve unit. the old valve should now be free from the DW. replace in reverse , remember to use silicon tape. I left the bottom panels off for a couple more days to check for leaks. my wife told me that the first washing after the fix did not really clean the dishes as well , but after that everything was back to normal. so perhaps run the machine empty once?

Spotted the source of the leak at the first heating element under the dishwasher. Removed the brass mounting nut and it was cracked. Replaced with new part from PartSelect.com and the leak was fixed. Apparently the heating element gets so hot it tends to crack the mounting nuts, which results in a leak. Delivery time for part said 3-5 days - mine arrived one day after ordered!

Just like the instruction video. I pulled the old gaskets out, cleaned the gunk that had accumulated and put the new gaskets in. The tub gasket does not require any cutting or stretching. Just make sure it makes the turn at the bottom of the tub so the door seals properly. The door gasket was very simple to replace.

Spray arm was melted on end from heating element in bottom of unit. Dishes were not being cleaned well.

When I looked at my prospective home for the first time, the current "month to month" renters made sure to tell me EVERYTHING that was wrong with the place. One of those things was that the dishwasher was broken and beyond repair. Upon moving in, my brother in law asked "Did you try turning it on??" We did, it worked and drained...so why was it "broken?" The lower spray arm kept popping out mid cycle, then would get melted on the heating units at the bottom of the unit during the drying process. I easily found and purchased the part from this site. Once it got here, I literally just had to pop it on, no tools, no mess. Fixed!

No water comming into dishwasher.
