I removed the screws around the perimeter of the door. This allowed me to easily unscrew the small phillips screws that attached the old dispenser from inside the door. I popped in the new one and screwed everything back together. It now works like new.

Open dishwasher door. Using phillips screwdriver, remove the lower two screws, this allows the outside pannel to come off and expose the Dispenser's back side. Remove the two electric wires remembering where they go, ie: white inside red outside. Remove the six screws holding Dispenser in place. Push Dispenser through to inside. Put new Dispenser in and reverse proceedure. This was actually easier than I expected. A novice can handle this repair. Good luck. Oh, when putting Dispenser screws back in, start them all first before tightening.

When I ordered the part, I kept the burned part with me at the computer so I would be sure to get the correct part. When I found it, I ordered the part and everything went well after I received it. It was very easy to install.

I ordered the detergent dispenser and was told it would take about 5 days to get it. I received it in 2 days. I first flipped the breaker switch to the dishwasher to avoid pulling it out to pull the plug. Opening the door to access the inside and removed the 2 lower screws on the side. This let the front panel be slid down and removed. I removed the 2 wires to the dispenser module. A flat-head screwdriver helped to loosen them. I then removed the 6 screws to remove the module. I reversed the process to install the new one.

Leaky dishwasher door

We had a leak around the bottom of the dishwasher door. After finding this site, I identified the part that I needed, the bottom gasket. I was ready to take all the screws out of the door to pull out the old gasket until I read the reviews and repair experiences here. Just have to grasp the old gasket with pliers to pull it out, straight down. I cleaned out the slot with a thin putty knife, just to make sure it didn't have any gunk left in it. Then simply slide the new gasket back in place. The only "trick" is to be careful lining up the slot on the right side, to make sure it seats all the way down. Like someone else already mentioned, there is no "click" to indicate it is all the way in, just a feeling of snugness. Closed it up and made a test run of the dishwasher, and, Voila! No more leak. A hell of a lot cheaper and faster than waiting for a repairman. Oh, I almost forgot to mention, I received my part within 24 hrs of ordering it too!

I am so glad you asked. lol I am on top of the world. I was about to
just buy a new one but being old, disabled and living off SS I had NO
money!! I dont do much on computer but just goggled. I found your
store and my answer was there. Your site is so good even I found what
I was needing. With your video I was able to do it myself. Oh by the
way I would have paid 65$ for them to look at it, and I assure you
they would not have let in cost me the 14$ I paid you for the part....
I LOVE YOU!!!! Now I need gaskets for my frig and chest freezer. Got
those video's?Llike my great grand kids say "YOU ROCK" lol

I started to disassemble the machine from the inside, and discovered that I should have started from the bottom...At least now I know how to get to all the parts...I had to remove a couple of parts to get to the problem. Because the replacement part was slightly different than the original, It took some rearranging to get the hoses and wires to connect(original was mounted at 45 degree angle, replacement at 90)

Ordered a new door seal and replaced, very easy to do but did not fix the leak. Before you order and replace your door seal check your spray arms. Our bottom arm was melted by the drying element and was allowing water to spray directly at the door causing the leak. Replaced bottom spray arm and leak is fixed.

I unbolted the diswahser from the cabinet, slid it forward about 6", removed two small screws, switched the new part (better made than original-not a cast part)for the old and buttened evrything back up. Works like a charm.
