Water Leak in Dishwasher Drain Line

I woke up on Christmas Day to water pooling under the kitchen sink (I guess I made the naughty list last year). Upon inspection, I could see that the water connections for the faucet were damp. Since I had all the parts, I replaced the faucet and service lines. Once complete, there were no leaks so I turned on the dishwasher to double check for leaks in those lines. It was all dry when the dishwasher finished but the next morning, more water under the sink.
I proceeded to replace the water line to the dishwasher and ran it through another wash cycle. Still leaking.
I found PartsSelect online and order a new drain line for the dishwasher. To my amazement, FedEx dropped off my order the next morning........yes, the next morning.
It took five minutes to remove the old drain line and install the new one (just a worm clamp at each end). It would have been faster than that but I don't get up and down as fast as I use to.

I took out the old dishwasher rack, slid in the new one. Nothing else was done and my spouse thought I had built her the Taj Mahal. Many repairs are nothing but cosmetic; the hard part is finding the model number and getting it ordered.

dishwasher door was falling heavily down when pulled open because one of the two springs was broken

identified the correct part to order. when it came, I used a Phillips-head screwdriver to undo the two brackets that hold the unit into the bottom of the countertop so I could slide it out a few inches. once I determined which spring was broken, I pulled out the remaining part and replaced it with the new one -- hooking it first into the hold farthest back in the appliance and looping the longer end over the top of the swiveling catch device that holds the front of the spring. then pushed unit back under countertop and screwed two brackets back into place with the existing wood screws and screwdriver. piece o' cake!

Lower rack was simple R&R. It was about 1" lower height than original but I suppose it fits multiple apps. Upper rack removed from slide rails with clips removed with fingernails. The funnel & spray arm came off by hand but the old rack had rusted under the snap-on clips on the funnel mount base causing stretching & a loose fit on new rack. I drilled a 1/8" hole in the base & used a small plastic zip-tie to secure the base to the rack. Problem solved. No other tools needed besides the drill & it took longer to go to garage to use it than all else combined. Still about a 10 minute task. Under 1 beer in red-neck repair time.

Inlet valve wasn't letting water in

Turned off water and power! Couldn't move dishwasher out, so access was a little problem. Worked to disconnect inlet hose. Finally unscrewed the whole unit, disconnected the outlet hose and the power connection and then unscrewed the unit from the inlet hose. Removed the ell from old unit, applied Teflon tape, and screwed it into new unit. (Tighten it really well. I didn't and had to take things apart again!) Installed new unit starting with the inlet tube, then the outlet tube then the frame screws. Turned water and power back on and tested the dishwasher. SUCCESS! My wife thinks I'm a hero.

No water getting inside the dishwasher, making a loud squeeling noise.

I'm a girl and it was pretty simple. I pulled out the dishwasher, removed the bottom plate cover. Removed the water line to the inlet valve and made sure the water was getting to the valve (it was). Removed the electical connector from the valve. Removed the valve and installed the new one. Made sure the water was pumping into the dishwaser. Pushed the dishwasher back into place. Runs great.

The best advice I can give is to watch the repair videos; they are very well done and demonstrate exactly what to do. I played them a couple of times (particularly for the upper rack) and the replacement was exactly as described...very easy. The "close up" shots were very helpful.

Watched the video instructions; was really easy. Encountered one problem; removal of the washer blade attachment. The problem was mine; lacked the strength in my finger to pry the attached device away from the rack. Used a spoon to assist; once off; easy installation.

machine was not filling

First, I unplugged the dishwasher. After removing the under counter mounting screws, I pulled the dishwasher out from the cabinets. Because the switch is hard to reach, I put the dishwasher on its side (very carefully). Make sure to drain the dishwasher first, or it will leak all over your kitchen. To remove the switch, I unscrewed the single black screw in the middle of the switch and unplugged the electrical wires. I put the new switch in its place, screwed in the screw, and plugged in the electrical connection. I set the dishwasher upright, and ran it through a cycle before reinstalling it into the cabinet. I had previously tried replacing the water inlet valve, but that was not the problem.

The dishwasher leaked water at the bottom of the door.

The door gasket, part 154576501 did the trick. Your website was very helpful; it listed the percentage of times that the part resolved the problem. Very useful when you are guessing what the cause may be. It took me a little while to figure out how to put it in. It didn't seem like it set in place, but upon closer inspection I noticed a track to house the gasket. You don't have to take the door off, but doing so helped me to make sure the gasket was properly installed.
