Within 5min of running the dishwasher it kept leaking out of one side at the bottom of the door. I took out all the screws all to find out there was no need to do so. Although having it open I was able to find that the bottom door gasket looked dry rotted and was falling apart... after a little research online I was able to find that this is a common issue and I ordered the new part. The part arrived next day... all I had to do was slide it in where the old one was. It did the trick!!! No more leaks!

We read how others did the repair and my husband had no problem changing it.. . I have a daycare and he had it fixed in a few minute after the kids had lunch and had it in before I could get them all laid down for nap. . . he took off the front door, took ooff the pkug in to the dispenser and took it out, then put the new one in, and hooked up the plug in and put the front cover back on, and it works great!! My dishwasher hasn't worked this good in a long time. I am swo glad I fo9und this web site. Sharon-Indiana

Both heating element brass nuts had a split in them. They had fallen off the heating element and were hanging on the electrical wires. I removed the wires from the heating element and removed the brass nuts from the wires. I then screwed the new nuts on the heating element and reattached the wires. problem solved. I want to thank you for having the parts I needed as Sears had discontinued them for this Kenmore appliance.

My Son used needle nose pliers to remover the old gasket, then starting on the lower right side, inserted the new gasket and used the rounded end of handle of a wooden spoon and pressed the gaste in place by running the handle up and around the top then down the left side. Used sissors to cut the new gasket to length. Door fit very tight. Ran a normal wash cycle and no leaks.

I removed the screws from the inside of the dishwasher door to allow access to the inside of the door. Once the exterior of the door is removed the detergent dispenser is easily removed by disconnecting 6 screws and unplugging two wires from the unit. The new unit slips in and is easily reconnected. Getting the exterior of the door reinstalled is a bit challenging, but once you figure out that the exterior needs to slide up to allow the catches on the door to grab, reinstallation is easy. A second pair of hands makes this easier.

The part fits exactly with no modifications necessary.

Remove the 6 screws around the dispenser. Replace the new one. Put the metal cover back first. Put back the electronic panel at last. Done

I did not come with directions, but I had gotten them from the Parts Select stories from others. Removed 2 screws from inside door, dropped the front panel, removed the 6 screws holding the dispenser, unplugged the contacts, removed the dispenser and then reversed the process.

After checking various forums and advice, the suggested repair was a new water inlet valve. It was easy to change but I wasted $30 as it did not cure the problem. Dishwasher is only 2 years old and is cheaper to replace then have someone come and look at it. So it did not fix the problem, but I recommend Parts Select, the price was fair and part arrived very quickly.
