Remove old spray arm and pressed the new part into place. Let the dishwasher run and the load came out very clean. Overall very pleased.

Dishwasher was leaking out of door seal. Sent PartSelect the brand and model number of the dishwasher and they did the rest. The replacement part was exactly the same as the old part.

I just popped on a new Arm. So easy. The amazing thing was how fast I had the part and how easy it was to find on Partselect.com. I ordered the part Monday and had it Tuesday. I was stunned and the tenant was impressed.

First I pulled out the old gasket, used this to measure for the new gasket, cut to right length, pushed new gasket into the track and washed a load of dishes. No leaks! This took about 2 minutes to complete.

Dishwasher would not drain

replaced the motor after fixing the impeller once before. seems to be a weakness in this model based on what I've read here. The motor does not fail it's the little impeller inside the housing that comes apart. One word of advice: use a wet/dry shop vac to extract the standing water from the dishwasher.

Cap would not close

At first I wasn't sure; I thought I had to buy the inner panel of the door. Considering that I have to minimize expenses I made it a point to tackle the problem myself. I unscrewed the outter panel off the dishwasher door and located the dispenser from inside of the inner door panel.

I unplugged the old dispenser,which was damaged, unscrewed it from the panel and removed it. I cleaned any and all debris, dirt and soap scum it had accumilated over the short years we've owned it.

Finally; after I prepared the new dispenser for installation, I placed it in position screwed it in and plugged it in, which was slightly tricky because it is pretty snug against the inside door panel. Once installed, I got my older son, 15, to help me screw in the outside panel of the door, and as he held it I screwed it on the the inside panel.

I tested it with no dishes inside by pouring just a little detergent in the new dispenser, starting the dishwasher and I stuck around in case there were any leaks or any other possible disaster that could occur.

This was exactly one week ago and all is still well. By the way, the person who took my order, I believe her name was Joann, was great. She talked to me making certain I had the right part, which I was unsure of since the diagram on your site was not quite clear. On top of that; I didn't pay for overnight service, yet my part was at my door the next day. I was amazed at the quick service and delivery. Thanks Joann!!!

FIrst I had to turn off the water supply, remove the bad part and cap off the copper water line.
I found the correct part on line and ordered it. When the part came, I uncapped the water line, doped the ends and refit the valve. Turned the water on an voila!. I actually did it! I was pretty proud of myself. It only cost me the price of the part and not a plumbers fees as well.
