I replaced the bottom gasket and the tub gasket. replacing them both was very easy. I pulled the tub gasket out by using a screw driver and popping out a section then pulled it out. Installed new one by just pushing it in. Bottom gasket was simple as well. There was a notch in the gasket on the right side so you can't screw it up on which side goes where. Pulled the old one out and pushed the new on in. I found it easier to install the right side with the groove first. Both gaskets helped. However dishwasher was still leaking. Another person had mentioned that the spinner that shoots the water on the bottom, had a hole in it and was shooting water towards the door. I examined both of them and found that the bottom one had a bigger hole on the very end. It looked like it hit something and made the hole bigger. I temporarily put duct tape over it and it has't leaked. Plan on ordering the new part today.

Just slid out the old rack and pushed in the new one. As a 70 year old lady with NO mechanical skills, it took me longer to get it out of the shipping box than into the dishwasher.

I viewed a very short video on how to replace the lower gasket on the website which was extremely useful. I then ordered the part via standard shipping and it arrived very quickly. I used the flat head screwdriver to gently loosen the old gasket which has mineral buildup on it and was stuck into place. Sliding the new one in was a snap. This was one of the best sites as you could search for the part by describing the problem. I would definitely use it again!

I overheard a woman talking about having to replace her dishwasher because the racks were rusted. I couldn't believe my ears. Mine had gotten pretty bad, so I went online to see if I could figure out how to replace it. I happened upon this site and it was the easiest thing I have ever done. I found my model number,(Instructions on the site helped me locate it.) located the item on the site and ordered it. It arrived within days already assembled. I opened my dishwasher, took out the old one and put the new one in. PERFECT FIT! It couldn't have been easier.

The bottom gasket slid straight out, after which I cleaned the slot a bit, and the new gasket slid in perfectly. The tub gasket pulled out by hand, and again, after wiping down the groove, I easily fit the new gasket around the tub and trimmed a few inches from one end. There is no longer a problem with leaks, and I think the door closes a bit more securely as well.
