I tried 2 parts: a tub gasket and a bottom gasket. Unfortunately neither worked and it looks like I'll be buying a new dishwasher. However, partselect's web site and install videos were awesome, and took all the unknowns/hesitation out of wanting to try to fix it myself. Thanks!!!

I had to disconnect the water supply line to allow the unit to slide out far enough to tilt back to get access to pump and motor after which I was able to replace it and reinstall

Leakikng around the motor

Removed dishwasher from under the counter. Tipped it onto the door to access the motor. The Bracket requires the use of a torque bit in the screwdriver. Removed the bradket and pulled out the motor. Replaced the O-rings and put on a new bracket. Reinstalled the dishwasher, but it still is leaking. Removed dishwasher and motor again. After a more thorough inspection, I noticed that the motor itself is leading through a weep hole inside the casing. The hole is located between the bracket and the dishwasher housing so it makes it appear to leak around the O-ring. Be sure to check the weep hole in the motor itself.

Water leak at bottom corners of door

Removed the old seal, which was a little stuck because of residue buildup from hard water. I used a pair of needle-nose pliers to get a grip on the old seal, then slid my finger underneath to separate the rest of the seal. Once removed, cleaned up the area and slid in the new seal which slotted in quite easily.

I pulled out the dishwasher to expose how the strike was attached. Unscrewed the 2 screws and found the part on your site. The part number had been changed. I ordered a new part and tracked with your easy to track delivery info. It arrived in 3 days. I attached my new part with 2 screws, slid the diswasher back in place. I am a happy camper! Thank you, Julia

No tools were needed. The old racks slipped out easily and the new ones were easy to put in. The upper rack's spray arm was a little bit more harder to take out and put back on only because the base was tightly secured.

Bottom was easy; slide the old one out; slide the new one in. The top rack took a little thinking, as there were no instructions included, but after analyzing the installation, I figured out how to swap the racks and the installation went quickly. A person without a mechanical mind might have been in trouble.

Well for a women, I found this very very easy...first shut down the power in the house! Unscrew the 2 small screws on the inside of the door panel and the front panel will drop off, unscrew the 6 small screws holding the dispenser in place, unplug the 2 small wires, remove old one, pop in the new dispenser, screw back in, plug in the two wires, put the door back together and that's it!! I turned the power back on and did a load of dishes, perfect...worked like a charm.
